Pat Collins:The Secret How to escape from low self acceptance and low self esteem. Part 2

Agape Ministries Podcast

In this episode, Father Pat encourages us to prayerfully and carefully find another person with whom we can share our innermost thoughts and feelings. For me, this is where the quality of Christian relationships becomes a beautiful reality. I invite you to imagine this situation. A person hears the freedom giving teaching of the gospel and commits themselves to the daily psychological, emotional and spiritual journey taken by Jesus. With this new self-understanding and confidence, we can begin to pay as much attention to the needs of others as we do to our own. Imagine then they meet another person committed to this way of thinking and living and plan to live there lives together.  Now, remember the promise that Christians commit to each other  "For Better or Worse, richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, until death takes us home."Is this an impossible dream? No. Is it easy?  No Is it worth it Absolutely.Stay safe and Happy  Archie and Cathy

Pat Collins:The Secret How to escape from low self acceptance and low self esteem. Part 1.

Agape Ministries Podcast

John 15:15    I no longer call you servants, I call you friends.  Jesus tells us that friends share the deepest things in their lives.  Hopes, dreams, fears and failures. Where can we find friends like these, well that's what we set out to be as a community.Within our small imperfect community, we have a number of informal friendship groups who meet together, at times socialise together and share Christian conversation.  But we also have another smaller group of gifted listeners, who can listen without judgement or the need to fix peoples lives. These gifted listeners simply walk with people as they journey towards transformation, wholeness and the freedom to enjoy the wonderful gift of life.It is such a blessing to have these gifted mature Christians as part of our faith community.Stay safe Archie.

This is part two of Father Pats excellent teaching on Self Esteem.  Jesus baptism in the Jordan was his experience of the inner presence of Gods Spirit deep in his human nature.It is this experience that Jesus wants to share with us. Jesus daily invites us to allow Gods Spirit to dream of a new quality of human relationships, relationships in which Justice and Compassion are primary. Jesus invites us to commit our selves to forming small local communities living in this new way. Stay safe, Archie and Cathy

Pat Collins, Green Acres calf to beef participant, gives an update on his progress

The Beef Edge

The second phase of the Teagasc Green Acres Calf to Beef Programme was launched in April 2019 and Pat Collins, Green Acres calf to beef participant joins Catherine Egan to give an update on his progress.  Located just outside Castlemartyr, Co. Cork, Pat operates a mixed farming system, consisting of 28ha of leased grassland and a tillage enterprise.  Having first ventured into calf rearing in 2017, with the purchase of 50 calves, numbers have grown considerably since. All of the calves are sourced from local dairy herds and this reduces the calves’ exposure to disease.  Initially, Pat operated a calf to store system, with animals sold to meet rising demand from grass buyers. Over recent years, Pat has invested heavily in grassland. As some of the ground was previously under tillage, a large degree of reseeding has been undertaken with high-yielding perennial ryegrass varieties. For more episodes and information covered on the Beef Edge, visit: teagasc.ie/thebeefedge The Beef Edge is a co-production with LastCastMedia.

Episode 489 - Pat Collins and Henry Glassie - Field Work

Face2Face with David Peck

Pat Collins and Henry Glassie and Face2Face host David Peck talk about Field Work, beauty, non-verbal cues, silence and listening, eliminating prejudice, and why art is always rooted in community. Trailer Synopsis: Following the success of Song of Granite, Irish Director Pat Collins returns with his new documentary feature, Henry Glassie: Field Work, which will have its world premiere at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.Over the last 50 years the celebrated American Folklorist Henry Glassie has been writing in-depth studies of communities and their art. Inspired by the writings and ideas of Glassie – Field Work is an immersive and meditative documentary set among the rituals and rhythms of working artists across Brazil, Turkey, North Carolina and Ireland. Glassie’s subject is folklore but his deep abiding love for the people who create it resonates throughout the film: 'I don’t study people. I stand with people and I study the things they create.'Collins’ achievement with Henry Glassie: Field Work is to bring these makers of art, in wood, fabric, yarn, paint, clay, metal, in song and story to our attention through their work, through the raw materials they shape into art objects and through the undeniable passion they carry in to their work.In this way the work is accorded profound meaning for the societies out of which it is generated an aesthetic value which is transcendent. And under Collins’ ever mindful direction, the process of making something out of raw materials is luminously manifested in sequences which reflect their measured and focused approach. The actual real time process of making works, such as hands, of the physicality of that work, and the close attention the artist is bringing to the work. For more info about the film head here.About Pat and Henry: Since 1999, Pat Collins has made over 30 films.
