Auditioning for the upcoming Canadian version of “The Amazing Race,” a reform rabbi (Stephen Wise) and a priest (Rev. Canon Darcey Lazerte) submitted an audition calling themselves “The God Squad.”
Here’s the video:
Their reasons for auditioning below,
Stephen Wise says:
“We were pretty serious about trying to get on the show. We thought a rabbi and a reverend would make a great team. Darcey and I are good friends. It began with some work between our Church and synagogue, but evolved as we have lunch often, play hockey and softball together and continue to have very warm relations between our two faith groups. We were talking one day and thought it would be fun to be on the show.”
Rev. Canon Darcey Lazerte:
“I think the spirit of cooperation across cultures and faiths would make an excellent spiritual/faith message. I think also that seeing two faith leaders, of a relatively young age and not fitting the stereotype of religious leaders would send a strong message.“

The sky’s is the limit. That phrase has truth to it. Just as the sky seems infinite; God is infinite, and has no limitations. God can do all things. He is omniscient and omnipotent. However, why do we limit what God can do in our life’s? By limiting God, we are limiting ourselves. Our thought process tends to me finite. Therefore, we allow our negative condition to be our reality. We limit ourselves to dreaming small instead of dreaming big, and to me, that’s putting God in a small box when He cannot be boxed.
God can do all things. God is in you, and you are in Him. Do you get what I’m saying?! God is in you! If God can do all things, and He is in you then you can do a lot. You can do big things in life, because of the power and strength God will give you to do so. (1 Corinthians 15:28 NIV, 1 Corinthians 6:19 NIV)
Jesus Christ even said it, “Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” – (John 14:12 NIV) Even greater things! That hits the spot… Glory to God!
“I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” – (Philippians 4:13 NIV)
We are able to do all things through Christ. God is beyond us – in all things. But God is trying to tell us something, and that something is that we can do more than we think we think we can. We can achieve anything through the strength that dwells within us. We can move the mountains. Nothing can stand against God, and if He is with us, nothing can stand against us. Family hardship, financial problems, etc., nothing can stand against us.
“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but not with God; all things are possible with God” – (Mark 10:27)
Another thing is to not submit God to your reasoning. God does not formulate ideas the way you do. Our minds are finite. Therefore, the key to not seeing your life through a straw’s hole is to tap into the power faith. (Proverbs 3:5-6 NIV, Isaiah 55:8-9 NIV)
“Great is our Lord and mighty in power;
his understanding has no limit.” – (Psalms 147-5 NIV)
Don’t box God. God cannot fit in a box, and neither should you.
“If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” - Bruce Lee
She’s a ten. He’s a five. The infamous rating game. We rate ourselves on our physical looks, our financial gain, and by material wealth. However, I choose to be rated R, because I choose to reign in life.
What does it mean to reign? No, it does not mean to have a gold shiny crown, and have the right to have a red carpet laid out in front of you to walk upon. It means to have control, rule, or to have influence of any kind. However, that’s English textbook definition, the type of “reigning” I’m talking about goes deeper than that, i.e., “reigning in life”.
Who has control of your life? Call it an epiphany, but I realized that when I try to have more control on what goes on in my life the more that goes wrong. That is why I give complete control over the situations, and outcomes of my life to God. (Proverbs 16:9 NIV) Your condition is not your position.
“Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” – (Proverbs 19:21 NIV)
I don’t rule my life. My life is not my own. God has given me life through Jesus Christ. Therefore, He rules my life. Now God is no tyrant, far from it. God is graceful and merciful, but always sovereign. He is omnipotent and omniscient. He is the ruler of my life — “Don’t you realize that you become the slave of whatever you choose to obey? You can be a slave to sin, which leads to death, or you can choose to obey God, which leads to righteous living. 17 Thank God! Once you were slaves of sin, but now you wholeheartedly obey this teaching we have given you. 18 Now you are free from your slavery to sin, and you have become slaves to righteous living.” – (Romans 6:16-18 NIV)
Music can influence, artists can influence. a lot of things can influence us; whether in a right or wrong way. While others are influenced by others things, my influence is God. I choose to be influenced by the character of Jesus Christ that represents God’s image. I choose to live by the NINE — (Galatians 5:22-23 NIV). Let God influence your life.
“Imitate God, therefore, in everything you do, because you are his dear children. 2 Live a life filled with love, following the example of Christ. He loved us and offered himself as a sacrifice for us, a pleasing aroma to God.” – (Ephesians 5:1-2 NLT)
“To be made new in the attitude of your minds; 24 and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.” – (Ephesians 4:23-24 NIV)
Reigning in life is allowing God to have control, rule, and influence over the life you have gained through Jesus Christ by salvation. Reigning in life is living the kingdom of God — “For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking, but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.” – (Romans 14:17 NIV)
I’m Rated R, what are you rated?
