The Relationship between Thoughts and Actions — Ligonier Ministries Blog

Have you ever wondered how your thoughts turn into actions? In this brief clip, R.C. Sproul discusses how René Descartes wrestled with this question as he considered the relationship between science and philosophy. Today, watch the entire message for free.


We have a tendency in our day to make a sharp distinction between science (or physics) and philosophy (engaging in the quest for metaphysical knowledge), as if these were two completely separate categories of investigation that never really meet. But the reality is that in the scientific world, all kinds of assumptions are being made constantly that are really philosophical in nature. Let me give a simple illustration of that. When you go to the doctor, and you’re not feeling well, and you’re looking for diagnosis and treatment of whatever it is that ails you, one of the concerns that you have and one of the concerns that your doctor has is trying to determine what caused this malfunction or your illness. It is the same thing that you encounter when you go and take your car in to the mechanic. He wants to find the cause of the problem. So much of what we are concerned about in the realm of real science is the whole question of causality or of cause and effect. Now, the underlying assumptions behind this question are assumptions that were challenged with great depth in the seventeenth century. Descartes, whom we’ve already introduced as the leading figure of seventeenth-century Rationalism, was very much concerned about this question. He wasn’t simply concerned about epistemology and self-consciousness that we’ve already looked at. But he was interested in how things related to each other in terms of causality. Descartes asked questions like this: “How is it that I can think about doing something and then translate that thought into action?” For example, if I decide right now to take this piece of chalk and throw it to Roger here in the first row, and then Roger decides to throw it back to me, and I catch it (without error of course), as we have this little exchange, how is it that I translated the idea, or the thought of an action, into a physical response, into a physical action? I decided to throw the chalk. He caught it. He threw it back, and I decided to catch it. That thought generated an action of response. So, we can see that thoughts can result in actions, and conversely, actions can give rise to thoughts. Now, we then ask the question, “What is an action, and what is a thought?” And maybe we don’t think about thought that much, but we have to at some point ask ourselves the question, “What is thought?” Is thought merely a physiological response with synapses and that sort of thing, or are ideas non-physical? We’re asking about the relationship between mind and matter.

Word to Him Who Halts — VCY America

I will save her that halteth. (Zephaniah 3:19)

There are plenty of these lame ones, both male and female. You may meet “her that halteth” twenty times in an hour. They are in the right road and exceedingly anxious to run in it with diligence, but they are lame and make a sorry walk of it. On the heavenly road there are many cripples. It may be that they say in their hearts—What will become of us? Sin will overtake us; Satan will throw us down. Ready-to-halt is our name and our nature; the Lord can never make good soldiers of us, nor even nimble messengers to go on His errands. Well, well! He will save us, and that is no small thing. He says, “I will save her that halteth.” In saving us He will greatly glorify Himself. Everybody will ask—How came this lame woman to run the race and win the crown? And then the praise will all be given to almighty grace.

Lord, though I halt in faith, in prayer, in praise, in service, and in patience, save me, I beseech Thee! Only Thou canst save such a cripple as I am. Lord, let me not perish because I am among the hindmost, but gather up by Thy grace the slowest of Thy pilgrims—even me. Behold He hath said it shall be so, and therefore, like Jacob, prevailing in prayer, I go forward though my sinew be shrunk.

July 3 – The sojourners’ imperishable inheritance — Reformed Perspective

…to an inheritance incorruptible and undefiled and that does not fade away, reserved in heaven for you. – 1 Peter 1:4

Scripture reading: 1 Peter 1:3-7

One of the great joys of a sojourner is knowing we are “going somewhere.” Despite times of spinning our wheels, we know we have a glorious future to look forward to. It gives meaning and purpose.

We’ve all broken things, made things dirty, and have watched things we love dearly, rust away into uselessness. Our inheritance, our hope of blessed and eternal fellowship with God, is not like that. It will never perish or fade away. We cannot break it or defile it.

Maybe amid the struggles you face in this world, you live in fear that you have defiled or broken your inheritance by your sins, like when you were a child you sometimes forfeited your allowance by your misdeeds. Can our living hope just fade away? Could you one day arrive in God’s presence only to be told, “I am sorry, I do not see a reservation?”

By God’s grace, through faith, you may be encouraged to know your inheritance will not fade away. Sojourners who acknowledge their sin and turn to God, can be assured of two things. First, God keeps your inheritance, your place is reserved. Second, God keeps you and prepares you for your inheritance. An inheritance is something graciously given, not earned. Again, it’s all grace. God is eager and ready to reveal this blessing in the days to come. He makes you eager and ready to receive it and enjoy it. Having that hope makes us eager and ready to live for Him today!

Suggestions for prayer

Thank God for preserving your inheritance for you and for preserving you for your inheritance. Confess ways we might tend to defile this blessing. Ask Him to make you eager and ready to live for Him today in the hope of your certain future.

Rev. John A. Bouwers is pastor of the Hope Reformed Church (URCNA) in Brampton, ON, where he has served since December 2017. He is married to Julie and they have been blessed with six children and twelve grandchildren. This daily devotional is also available in a print edition you can buy at Nearer to God Devotional.

Speaking the Language — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

We are Christ’s ambassadors, God making His appeal as it were through us. We are Christ’s personal representatives…” 2 Corinthians 5:20 (Amplified Bible)

I attended a conference with representatives from several countries. Presentations were in English and translated into the language spoken by most in the audience. Each day we sat together discussing the assigned topic and since the ideas were interesting to everyone, conversations often became lively. Each table had a translator but when a particular topic sparked heartfelt interest, the majority language people quickly became too animated for the interpreter to keep up.

As I sat there not understanding but hungry for explanation, I began to wonder if this is how a non-Christian feels when conversations in church or Bible studies leave her feeling insignificant. Does she feel as though she’s on the outside looking in? Does he wish people would just stop talking and listen to him?

We are Christ’s ambassadors.” By definition, ambassadors represent their own country to another government and the very best ambassadors learn the language of the country to which they are assigned. This exhibits honor and humility and places the ambassador in a unique position to deeply understand the ethos of the assignment. A wise ambassador knows how to ask questions to elicit understanding and encourages listeners to express their own views on a vast variety of subjects.

To be influential ambassadors, ones who adequately translate God’s loving appeal, we must learn to speak the language of our culture. We must learn how to talk about subjects important to our listeners, not just our own most recent spiritual discoveries. Am I as ready to listen as I am to speak? It’s a long and often slow process, but it’s the way things happen in the Kingdom of God as we seek to invite new citizens into the conversation. And into the Kingdom.

Father, I admit that too often I race ahead to “explain the gospel” before listening to the hearts of people. And because I disapprove of so much of the culture around me, I neglect to learn the language of my neighbors and I lose the opportunity to speak wisely and well. Forgive me, Lord. Please teach me.

Jesus is With You Always — Daily Devotionals by Thoughts about God

“Surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age” Matthew 28:20

The Lord Jesus is always intimately involved in His church. He walks among you, and His promise is “I am with you always.” He is as close to us now as He was to the disciples at the lake when they sat and ate fish with Him around a fire. Not physically, but still in real truth and presence, Jesus is with us.

And this is a blessed truth, since where Jesus is, love becomes inflamed. Of all the things in the world that can set the heart burning, there is nothing like the presence of Jesus! A glimpse of Him so overcomes us, that we are ready to say, “Turn your eyes from me; they overwhelm me.” (Song of Solomon 6:5) Even the touch of His garments causes the sick and the faint to grow strong. If we, for even a moment, lean our heads against Him and receive His divine love into our poor cold hearts, we are cold no longer, but glow hot in love. We will gain strength equal to every labor and capable of withstanding every suffering.

If we know that Jesus is with us, all our abilities will be developed, every grace strengthened. We must cast ourselves into the Lord’s service with heart, and soul, and strength. Therefore, the presence of Christ is to be desired above anything else. Those who are most like Him will most clearly appreciate his presence. If you desire to see Christ, you must seek to conform ever more closely to Him. Bring yourself, by the power of the Spirit, into union with Christ’s desires, and motives, and plans of action, and you are likely to be favored with His company.

Remember, Jesus is with you. His promise is as true as ever. He delights to be with us. If He does not come, if He does not seem close, it is because we hinder Him by our indifference. He will reveal Himself to our earnest prayers, and graciously lend an ear to our praises, requests, and tears, for these are the golden chains which bind Jesus to His people.

Lord Jesus, Today I draw near to You and ask You to fill me with Your peace and Your presence by the power of Your Holy Spirit. Amen.

How does knowing that Jesus is as close to you as He was with the disciples make a difference in how you live your life daily?

July 3 Afternoon Quotes of The Day

Beholding Glory by Faith
2 Corinthians 3:18; 5:7

No man shall ever behold the glory of Christ by sight hereafter, who does not in some measure behold it by faith here in this world.


Ritzema, E. (Ed.). (2012). 300 Quotations for Preachers. Bellingham, WA: Lexham Press.

Arm Yourself Against All Sins
1 Corinthians 10:12; Ephesians 6:10–17; 1 Thessalonians 5:6; 1 Peter 5:8; Revelation 3:2

Let us arm ourselves against all sins, against pride, against hatred, against ambition, against envy, against covetousness, against sensuality. Let heaven see that, even on earth, it has those who stand on its side. Let hell know that, even on earth, there are those who make war against it with the Word of God. And let earth itself know that it is still capable of once more growing green and of giving much fruit.

White House claims Kamala Harris is being sabotaged from within as staffers complain to media about ‘s**tshow’ inside VP’s office | RT USA News

White House claims Kamala Harris is being sabotaged from within as staffers complain to media about ‘s**tshow’ inside VP’s office

The White House has defended Kamala Harris from media reports detailing her alleged administrative shortcomings, as anonymous staffers continue to complain of widespread dysfunction within the vice president’s office.

Axios reported on Friday that several administration officials viewed Harris’ office as a poorly-managed “s**tshow” that lacks the discipline and professionalism of President Joe Biden’s inner circle. Pointing to the fact that the VP has already lost several top aides, Biden officials told the outlet that Harris doesn’t have strong relationships with her staff and has repeatedly received bad advice from her communications team.

The problems could have far-reaching consequences. Should Biden choose not to seek re-election in 2024, Harris would be the presumptive Democratic nominee. But Democrats close to the White House, including senior administration officials, are reportedly concerned that her political tone-deafness and handling of high-profile issues could make her a liability. One Democratic operative told Axios that party insiders are questioning whether the first African-American vice president would be a strong pick for the Oval Office.

Increasingly, Democrats are thinking: “Oh, she’s f**king up, maybe she shouldn’t be the heir apparent,” the source said.

Kamala Harris’ office described as ‘abusive environment’ with ‘low morale’ in scathing report

The salacious scoops follow reports alleging that there are growing tensions between West Wing officials and the Harris team.

However, doubts about Harris’ leadership abilities have been dismissed by senior officials. White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain told Axios that the president has full trust and confidence in his second-in-command.

Biden senior adviser Cedric Richmond was similarly scornful of the rumors, insisting that the VP had fallen victim to a “whisper campaign designed to sabotage her.” Richmond described the vice president as a “staunch advocate for the Biden-Harris agenda,” and said that he has yet to receive complaints about her or her team. He further noted that many people working for Biden have been with him for “decades” and that it was unfair to hold the VP’s team to the same standard one might expect from the president’s staff. Richmond pointed out that criticisms of Harris and her team were only coming from anonymous sources, adding that the allegations have snowballed to create an “urban legend” about the VP’s office.

Fail to curb immigration, or anger fellow Democrats? VP Kamala Harris faces no-win scenario in new role as Mexico ‘border czar’

Questions about Harris’ administrative capabilities came to the forefront after Politico ran a story earlier this week claiming that the work environment in her office was “tense and at times dour.”

The outlet cited more than 20 current and former officials and associates of Biden of Harris, several of whom blamed the VP for the “low morale” in her office.

“People are thrown under the bus from the very top, there are short fuses and it’s an abusive environment,” one source told Politico. “It’s not a healthy environment and people often feel mistreated. It’s not a place where people feel supported but a place where people feel treated like s**t.”

Do Hunter Biden’s laptop photos of dad reveal shady foreign business dealings? | OneNewsNow

Photos were reportedly found on Hunter Biden’s laptop that indicate his dad met with his son’s Mexican billionaire business associates while serving as vice president.

Joe said it ain’t so …

The emails uncovered by The Daily Mail contradict President Joe Biden’s insistence during his 2020 presidential campaign that he never discussed international business with his son.

Hunter’s laptop that was reportedly abandoned at a computer repair shop allegedly reveals that since at least 2010, his associates had planned dealings with Carlos Slim – the richest person in the world at the time – and fellow Mexican billionaire Miguel Alemán Velasco.

“The plans for working with [Slim] were allegedly spotted in company emails from Rosemont Seneca – a consulting firm established by Hunter, Devon Archer and Christopher Heinz, who is the stepson of former U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry,” TheBlaze reported. “The firm was founded in 2009 – the same year Joe Biden was inaugurated as vice president.”

More and more evidence obtained by The Daily Mail contradict the president’s denial of such dealings.

“The then-vice president also flew Hunter and his partner Jeff Cooper on Air Force 2 to Mexico City in 2016, where Hunter arranged to meet Alemán’s son for meetings over a ‘flippin gigantic’ business deal,” The Daily Mail divulged. “In the light of shocking documents uncovered by DailyMail.com from the laptop, the president now faces serious questions – not just whether he knew about Hunter’s controversial business dealings, but also whether he was involved in facilitating them himself while vice president.”

According to The Daily Mail’s report, Neil Callahan – a staffer at Rosemont Seneca – attempted via an email in October 2010 to get Slim involved in a business deal.

“I think once we get past the test/beta phase of say 4–5 $250k projects, we target getting 5–8 clients who will pay us $1m–5m annually,” Callahan wrote, according to The Daily Mail. “I don’t think any of those clients will be your typical Hedge Fund – it’s going to be Private Investors (i.e., Carlos Slim), SWFs, Select Corporations (i.e., Chevron, AON) and maybe a mega Hedge Fund.”

Two years later, more shady dealings reportedly took place.

“In 2012, one of Hunter’s friends who was working for the ‘international government relations firm’ Blue Star Strategies, purportedly suggested Slim as a potential buyer of a gambling company that Hunter was partnered with,” TheBlaze recounted.

Blue Star Strategies was reported by Politico last month as being under investigation by the Department of Justice for possible illegal lobbying regarding its questionable business dealings with Burisma – the Ukrainian gas company that Hunter served with as a board member. Recordings reveal then-VP Biden bragging that he threatened to end massive U.S. government aid to the Urkraine if it did not fire its attorney prosecuting Hunter to expose his shady dealings.

The list goes on, with the president’s son allegedly pursuing even more lucrative deals with foreign leaders using his dad’s then-VP name.

“Hunter targeted a different Mexican billionaire – Miguel Alemán Velasco, who is the son of former Mexican President Miguel Alemán Valdés,” TheBlaze noted. “Hunter and Jeff Cooper – an attorney who worked with Hunter’s late brother Beau Biden and reportedly donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to Biden political campaigns – reportedly devised a plan to invest in multiple businesses in Latin America.”

Bragging rights?

The laptop allegedly contains a February 2013 email of Cooper boasting about a brewing transaction.

“This is setting up to be flippin gigantic, brother,” Cooper’s email reads.

Using his dad’s stature as VP to secure meetings with the rich and famous was apparently something that Hunter also saw as worthy of bragging rights

“In 2014, Hunter was reportedly able to secure a private meeting with then-Vice President Joe Biden for Carlos Slim, Miguel Alemán Velasco and Interjet airline CEO Miguel Alemán Magnani – the grandson of the former Mexican President Miguel Alemán Valdés,” TheBlaze informed. “Hunter allegedly emailed White House photographer David Lienemann to ask for photographs of the Alemán family with then-VP Joe Biden.”

Just months later in May 2014, it appears Cooper was searching for photos proving the big transactions – an autographs, as well.

“Any luck on getting those other pics from the WH [White House]-Alemán visit?” Cooper asked. “Or getting a few signed for Miguel and his dad?”

In a photo from the laptop dated Nov. 19, 2015, then-VP Biden is shown with his son, Cooper and the trio of Mexican billionaires at Biden’s vice-presidential residence in the nation’s capital.

And the connection with the Ukrainian business Burisma was shown in a 2014 email.

“I met with Miguel [Alemán Magnani] last night – he has set up meetings with the Secretary of Energy and the CEO of Pemex for Jan 12,” Cooper emailed Hunter. “Is there any chance that anyone from Burisma could attend?”

It also appears Biden’s White House staff was used to conduct his family’s business dealings.

“Hunter worked with Joe Biden’s vice-presidential secretary Kathy Chung to arrange a phone call between Carlos Slim and the VP in October 2015,” The Daily Mail’s report explained.

Bidens for oil when personal profit involved?

In the face of Biden’s alternative energy push to wipe out the U.S.’s oil industry, his brother, Jim, allegedly tried to make a deal with Mexico in May 2015 to secure a transaction with Slim involving a U.S. oil pipeline.

“Have a very real deal with Pemex (Carlos slim) need financing literally for a few days to a week,” Jim Biden told Hunter of Pemex – a Mexican petroleum company. “Have the seller (refinery /slims) and buyer major being delivered from pipeline in (h/USA)…”

The Biden’s connection with China – which the president has made many attempts to protect regarding the origin of the COVID-19 pandemic being from its Wuhan Laboratory – was also allegedly laid bare.

“Reports surfaced in October that highlighted emails from Hunter that he was pursing ‘lasting and lucrative’ deals involving a Chinese energy company that he said would be ‘interesting for me and my family,’” TheBlaze noted. “There were also reports that Joe Biden’s son ordered keys to be made for his new ‘office mates,’ which included his father Joe Biden, his mother, his uncle and the emissary for a profitable Chinese energy company.”

‘I told you so’ moment for Trump?

Former President Donald Trump brought up Hunter Biden’s laptop numerous times during his 2020 presidential campaign, but the mainstream media merely dismissed his assertions – that the emails reveal Hunter monetizing access to his dad – as a fringe theory.

Hunter’s shady dealings with Burisma to forward the Obama administration’s foreign policy was a focus of Trump’s

“And you didn’t have a job before your father was vice president,” Trump told Fox & Friends last year, according to Fox News. “You can’t go and go with your father and every stop you make, you pick up $1 billion.”

Hunter skirted the issue when asked about the laptop earlier this year.

“There could be a laptop out there that was stolen from me,” Hunter told CBS News in an April interview. “It could be that I was hacked. It could be that it was the… that it was Russian intelligence. It could be that it was stolen from me. Or that there was a laptop stolen from me.”

New York Times keeps book about CENSORSHIP off its bestseller list, disgruntled publisher complains to media | RT USA News

New York Times keeps book about CENSORSHIP off its bestseller list, disgruntled publisher complains to media

Regnery Publishing is accusing the New York Times of purposefully keeping a book on censorship off its bestseller list because the work is authored by conservative pundit Michael Knowles.

‘Speechless: Controlling Words, Controlling Minds’ by Knowles has already topped bestseller lists on Amazon and Publisher’s Weekly (and sold nearly 18,000 copies in its first week of release). Despite its success, though, it does not meet the standards to appear as a top 15 bestseller on the New York Times’ list.

“It is our observation that the books that tend not to make it onto the Times list when you would expect that they would, tend to be books that are not congenial to the New York Times worldview,” Regnery publisher Tom Spence told the Daily Caller, accusing the Times of playing politics with Knowles’ book.

Danielle Rhoades Ha, vice president of communications for the New York Times Company, would only say that Knowles’ book “did not meet the standards for inclusion this week.” Ha added that conservatives have made the bestseller list in the past, something Spence argues does not eliminate the possibility of censorship.

“The fact that they did not censor or discriminate against a conservative book in one case doesn’t mean that they haven’t done it in this case,” he said.

Included on the bestseller list were books such as ‘On Juneteenth’, which only sold around 4,800 copies in the same time period, according to Bookscan, which tracks book sales. One book by a conservative commentator did make the list, with Bill O’Reilly’s latest historical work ‘Killing the Mob’ topping it.

Spence has argued that the “standards” the Times is promoting have little to do with actual sales, noting that numerous books become bestsellers according to Bookscan but never appeared on the Times’ coveted list.

The Times says its reporting is based on “unit sales reported on a confidential basis by vendors offering a wide range of general interest titles.” Sales are also “statistically weighted to represent and accurately reflect all outlets proportionally nationwide.”

This methodology essentially translates, according to Spence, to polling that does not accurately reflect what people are consuming.

“Gallup doesn’t go out and ask every single person in America how they are going to work, they select samples they think are representative,” he said. “And that’s what the NYT list is. They get sales reports from certain selective bookstores. They keep it a secret though, who they are.”

This is far from the first time the New York Times bestseller list has been questioned, especially by conservative authors, some of whom were happy to blast the paper when reacting to Knowles’ book.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Times has also been accused of promoting liberal authors, despite low sales numbers. Multiple critics questioned the paper’s methodology in 2019 when former Barack Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett made the bestseller list, but consumers found her book ranking incredibly low everywhere else, including at #1,030 on Amazon.

In 1983, ‘Exorcist’ author William Peter Blatty also shone an unflattering light on the Times’ bestseller list when he sued the paper after his book ‘Legion’ – a sequel to his most famous work – was only included on the list for one week, despite making numerous other bestseller lists. Though Blatty’s suit was unsuccessful, the Times did refer to its bestseller list as “editorial content,” saying, “the New York Times is entitled to have its own bestseller list.”

CNN’s Top-Rated Show Came In 22nd Place In Cable News Ratings

By Daily Wire, July 3, 2021

The Nielsen ratings for the second quarter of the year are in, and the message seems to be: If Fox News has a show on the air, viewers would rather watch it than anything on CNN.

CNN, whose year-on-year total day ratings increased 63% in the first quarter of 2021, fell to earth over the last three months.

CNN’s top-rated show, “Cuomo Prime Time,” finished 22nd in cable news, behind 14 Fox News shows and seven broadcast on MSNBC. The shows that beat CNN’s best-rated program include:

  • Tucker Carlson Tonight
  • Hannity
  • The Five
  • The Rachel Maddow Show (MSNBC)
  • The Ingraham Angle
  • Special Report with Bret Baier
  • The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell (MSNBC)
  • Fox News Primetime
  • Gutfeld!
  • All In with Chris Hayes (MSNBC)
  • Deadline White House (MSNBC)

  • America’s Newsroom
  • The 11th Hour with Brian Williams (MSNBC)
  • The Faulkner Focus
  • America Reports
  • Your World with Neil Cavuto
  • Fox and Friends
  • The Story with Martha McCallum

Only two of CNN’s shows — Cuomo’s 9 p.m. ET program and “Anderson Cooper 360” — cracked 1 million viewers during the second quarter of the year, which ran from March 29 to June 25.

Trump’s July 4 weekend rally in Florida attracts crowd a day early

By Yahoo, July 2, 2021

People are lining up more than a day early for former President Donald Trump’s July 4 weekend rally in Sarasota, Florida.

Video showed parked vehicles and tents at the Sarasota Fairgrounds with flags boasting messages supporting the 45th president. Dozens of people were present when WFLA 8 On Your Side, a local NBC affiliate, reported on the gathering.

Sources told the Washington Examiner this week that Trump is holding the event despite pleas from Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to postpone the campaign-style rally roughly 200 miles from the Miami suburb where an international search and rescue mission is excavating bodies from the site of a partially collapsed seaside condominium.

DeSantis’s team denied that the Republican governor, who is widely seen as a top 2024 presidential contender, signaled to Trump he wanted the rally to be called off.

Facebook To Provide Pop-Up Warning When Your Friends Begin Thinking For Themselves — The Babylon Bee

MENLO PARK, CA—Facebook has introduced a new feature that will warn you when one of your friends is sharing free and independent thoughts on its network.

Should you encounter an unapproved opinion, Facebook will provide a pop-up warning letting you know that if you’re concerned about a friend expressing opinions derived from free thought that is not in line with big tech companies, major corporations, Hollywood, universities, or the government, you can get them help.

The social media platform will allow you to take steps to report people who are sharing unapproved opinions. You may report them to Facebook, who will reach out to them to help them by forcibly sending them to a Facebook reeducation camp.

“Yes, the camp is mostly brainwashing,” Mark Zuckerberg admitted, “but the food is pretty good. They serve mac and cheese with the little cut-up hot dogs in there every Tuesday. Plus, we’ve got one of those big inflatable launcher things out on the lake, which you can use to relax and launch each other into the water. It’s a ton of fun. If we kidnap you and take you to our camp, we guarantee you’ll love hanging out there on the lake.”

“Once you finish your reeducation sessions, of course.”
