Kes Talks

John Stevens speaks on "British Evangelicalism in the Post-COVID Context" - Keswick Convention 2022 | Grateful This lecture was originally recorded on Wednesday 3rd August 2022.The past two years have been tremendously challenging churches. The pandemic has expedited the decline of the church in UK with some denominations facing extinction. At the same time evangelical churches are slowly growing.

We will consider issues of theology, identity, unity, diversity, and mission. Keswick Convention is organised by Keswick Ministries. The central vision of Keswick Ministries is to see the people of God refreshed, inspired and equipped to fulfill that calling, directed and guided by God’s Word in the power of his Spirit, for the glory of his Son.

Covid, Churches and the Frankfurt Declaration: Jamie Franklin & John Stevens debate Christian liberty and government overreach


As the global pandemic subsides, the way the Covid lockdowns were implemented in churches still divides Christians. The Frankfurt Declaration has been signed by church leaders who are concerned that civil and religious liberties are being eroded by Government overreach. One of the signatories is Anglican priest Jamie Franklin, a co-host of the Irreverend podcast. He has been critical of the church's handling of Covid saying it fell into line with restrictions too readily. He discusses the issues with John Stevens of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC) who believes that the government mandates were appropriate for what was known at the time.

Does the hiring of John Stevens tell us more about the system Bruce Cassidy will run with VGK?

Locked On Golden Knights - Daily Podcast On the Vegas Golden Knights

With last week's hiring of assistant coach John Stevens, we could probably forecast that VGK will have a different look and a play within a much different system than with Pete DeBoer. Stevens will stress defense and transition. He won two Stanley Cups with the L.A. Kings and recently was an assistant in Dallas where the Stars were one of the top defensive teams. Will VGK give up scoring for defense? We also discuss what VGK would have looked like if they kept their Draft picks - following a model that was successful with recent Cup Champs, Colorado. And, will VGK go for the block vs other Pacific Division teams that are looking to sign big name free agents? Learn more about your ad choices. Visit podcastchoices.com/adchoices

John Stevens, a lifetime of publishing

Books on Asia

This week author and translator John Stevens joins us from Hawaii. Stevens has penned many books over his long career, mainly dealing with Japanese martial arts, poetry, and biography.“A book should be enlightening for the writer, and for the people reading it.” —John StevensAmy starts off the show mentioning the books of Stevens that she has read: The Marathon Monks of Mt. Hiei; The Essence of Aikido: Spiritual Teachings of Morihei Ueshiba; Dew Drops on a Lotus Leaf: Zen Poems of Ryokan; and Mountain Tasting: Haiku and Journals of Santoka Taneda. Yet that is only a fraction of the works that Stevens has produced over his life.He explains his translation style and how he manages to capture the essence of haiku in his translations. He names Arthur Waley as an exemplar of the craft.“A good translation has to be good literature, fine literature."Stevens talks about his first book, One Robe, One Bowl (Tuttle Publishing).His second book was Mountain Tasting: Haiku and Journals of Santoka Taneda (White Pine Press). Of his books on aikido, he says the most popular has been The Art of Peace: Teachings of the Founder of Aikido (Shambhala), which has over 2,300 ratings on Amazon and has been further translated into over 20 languages.Amy reads a poem from Dew Drops on a Lotus Leaf (Shambhala), which prompts Stevens to talk about his passion for poetry and translation:"If you don’t feel the passion and the poignancy, then it’s not a translation.”When talking about the writing process:"Writing a book should be enlightening, for both you writing it and for the people reading it," says Stevens. "My writing was an extension of my [Aikido] practice.”Other popular books by Stevens are The Essence of Aikido: Spiritual Teachings of Morihei Ueshiba (Kodansha International), and The Marathon Monks of Mt. Hiei (Echo Point Books & Media).Stevens tells a story of going to Sendai to meet a master Aikido teacher, Shirata-sensei, in Yamagata. "I’d arrive at the dojo, no one was there. He was there. He was never not there. And he was sitting, meditating. I learned something: that if you’re a teacher, you’ve got to be there all the time.”The author and translator also talks about his book Lust for Enlightenment (Shambhala) and why it was controversial, as well as Tantra of Tachikawa Ryu: Secret Sex Teachings of the Buddha (Stone Bridge Press).More recently, Stevens has been working with art exhibitions and writing exhibition catalogues. He is currently working on a display in Spain centered around the Kyoto poet and Buddhist nun Rengetsu at the Gothic Monastery of Pedralbes in Barcelona until May 27, 2022. If you need a primer before you go, get a copy of Stevens's Rengetsu: Life & Poetry of Lotus Moon (Echo Point Books & Media). The Barcelona exhibit, which has been open to the public since November 2021 and is titled "La lluna de Lotus" in Spanish, includes 36 ceramic pieces and 30 paintings and calligraphy by the female artist. Lastly, Amy asks Stevens what his favorite books on Japan are:Poetry and Zen: Letters and Uncollected writings of R.H.
