he joins us from the potter house church in dallas. merry christmas. >> good morning, merry christmas to all of you. >> in the context of what norah just said about spirituality today and the conflicts in the world and the pain in the world and terrorism in the world, what is your christmas message to your congregation and to people around the world on this christmas? >> well, first, let me comment that i think that the stats don't really take into consideration the way that people ingest information today. i know our church has really had to rehaul to keep up with the streaming and technology. it doesn't always require that you go into a physical building. much like universities, people are finding new and interesting ways to receive information. my message to the nation is a message of brotherhood and hope. if we would get down to the most simplistic messages that christ taught, and that is love the lord thy god with all thy heart,
neighbor as thyself, we wouldn't have as many conflicts as we have right now. my hope and prayer and desire is that we would become more loving. we can't change the world but we can touch the person across the street. >> we can do that, but so many people don't. how do you reassure people who are very afraid. very troubling times in racial issues, politically, religiously. how do you reassure people? >> you know, i think the unique thing that we have today is that we access information so quickly. being a person who grew up in the '60s, we were having great racial conflicts even then. that's not anything new, but we are bombarded with those images in an unprecedented way. terrorism is a new dimension to the degree that it is coming and the source that it's coming, but we've always been terrorized in some way or another due to hostility of evil people.
ourselves with our convictions of faith. we do live in a contemporary society that has conflict and people who do not hold the values that we hold dear. and when we find them we have to deal with them, whether they're a terrorist, drug dealers or policemen who have gone awry. we have to be aware that evil is a possibility no matter the nationality, color or country. >> as a man of faith, what is your reaction to some of the anti-muslim rhetoric? >> you know, i think that we -- as a christian, it's important that while we hold dear to our belief systems that we also understand and respect other people and their belief systems as well. and to realize what's in the context of any religious shroud there are always extreme views who use those relidgejgiosityies for their own purposes and we cannot judge the whole by the few.
be vigilant and watchful, but it's to our detriment to focus on one group of people when recent information shows us that we're seeing terrorism comes in all colors, all kinds, all classes. and i think it's very detrimental for us to target one group of people only to understand that there are all people who are susceptible to being terrorists in our current contemporary society. >> the book is about destiny. what's your destiny? >> my destiny is to help other people reach theirs. and when i realized that, i became, to a large degree, a spiritual teacher, a spiritual available to me. to try to help other people move forward in their lives. i don't know whether it's the nostalgia of getting older or what it is, but i'm very concerned about the next generation, that we arm them with the tools and the equipment that they need to facilitate their future and not to stand in their way but to help ease the
through a very perplexing world and a very confusing time. i wrote about that in the book "destiny." >> i'm sorry to interrupt you. but there are those who say that young people are not as interested in, as the polls show, in official church, an official religion. >> i'm glad you brought that up, charlie. one of the amazing things i'm finding is i work with millennials. while they're not as apt to go into a building, that also goes to their work style. they don't want to come to a building to work. we've had 40,000 people per week streaming our services. i've had to learn to adopt to how they choose to receive information. it is not the building that's important. it is the message that's important. christ never saw a sanctuary like we see today in our contemporary society. and our fidelity cannot be to
denominations but our fidelity must be to the word of god and the propelling of the message of love, hope and peace. >> you've written about instinct, forgiveness, purpose. i'm fascinated why you chose the topic of destiny in particular? >> because i think that we need to understand that we have a guide and a compass and a course of life. the apostle paul said i have finished my course, while in reality many people today don't even know their course. they're just going through the motions of the treadmill of life in the absence of a sense of purpose and a sense of destiny. destiny is what draws us. if you think, gayle, of instincts being metal, think of destiny as being the magnet that pulls us toward an expected end. most of us end up in the greatest careers and the fulfilling lives. there was a proclivity to be
i try to point that out that destiny pulls you away from distractions and side roads that we've all gotten into from time to time and gets us back on course. we need people on course doing the thing that they were created to do. >> bishop jakes, your book resonated with me because you write that destiny is spelled prioritize. and you say prioritize your relationship, prioritize your finance, prioritize what's important for you. how important is that for people to step back and say focus on the most important things in your life? >> you know, when we do step back, we find that we're bombarded with so much noise. we have so much noise coming at us through the technology that we've created. as good as it is on one hand, many times it advertises what's going on with this person or that person. we want to be like the kardashians or the presidents or the senator or some actor, and
of other people's lives to the detriment of our own. in the stillness and the quietness of introspection, you can then begin to re-evaluate at this stage of my life, am i doing the thing that gives me the most fulfillment? and i might also say to your viewers today that many times what gave you fulfillment at one stage of your life may not be what gives you the fulfillment at the next stage of your life. give yourself permission to move on and don't remain loyal to who you used to be at the detriment of the potential of who you can be. >> understand that, gayle. >> that's good advice. >> so many people miss that message. i love that sentiment of that. >> but it really is an important message to have because like everything that is created, we evolve, we develop, we move forward, we go through seasons, we go through stages. and it doesn't mean that you fail because a season is over. it just means that you are progressing into the next dimension of your life.
don't fight some of the things that worry fighting now. we're so afraid of age, we're so a afraid of not staying in one spot and not doing what we're expected to do rather than what we are created to do. >> you can't be afraid of age. certainly better than the alternative on this christmas morning. bishop t.j. jakes, always good to see you on this christmas day. >> thank you for having me. merry christmas, everyone. >> the same to you. >> say a prayer for us. >> pope francis, he used to say that, too, to everyone, say a prayer for me. he enjoyed a remarkable year. he continued his fearless attempts to tackle global issues head-on. millions of american catholics. the highlight was his visit to the united states. allen pizzey followed the pope's travels around the world this year. >> reporter: pope francis set his tone for 2015 in the philippines braving typhoon
poncho that the faithful wore. not quite walking on water but close enough. he logged 50,000 air miles through 11 countries spreading a message based on mercy, family, environment. his plain speaking attitude kept francis deep in controversy and enhanced his popularity. a confession to the drawback of being pope was not being able to go out for pizza prompted a naples pizzamaker to deliver one to the pope mobile. he paid him back by going to where the law feared to tread. and a phrase, corrupt society stinks. as spring came to the vatican, he was in full bloom, canonizing saints from what was 19th century palestine bolstered cristians of the middle east.
displeased israel. his signature moment of the year was a clarion call for action on environment. and he took the message to the major seats of power, starting with the white house, where he made his first ever speech in english. >> i can grateful for your welcome welcome. >> pope francis of the holy see. >> the first ever address by a pope to a giant meeting of congress and managed to both please and disconcert politicians on both sides of the political spectrum. his reasoned and calm delivery. >> in our own quiet way sustain the life of society. >> was such a stark contrast to normal political dialogue in washington that it had hundreds of viewers tweeting along the lines of, congress, listen to this man. in a follow-up speech at the
to nearly 150 heads of state. any harm done to the environment is harm done to humanity. massive security, which aides said the pope hated, kept crowd numbers down from his usual draw, but not the enthusiasm he generated. and on the home front, francis overcame opposition from within the curiae to begin reforming the bureaucracy and made apologies for a series of scandals in the vatican that included gay sex and drug abuse. i want, in the name of the church, to give forgiveness for the scandal. he convinced, some said bull ed, the synod of bishops to take a new stance toward ss gay couples and help in getting annulments.
make a grueling trip to africa, one is considered to be the most dangerous stop by a modern pope. it will encompass everything the pope does in 2016. his visit to mexico in february will focus on immigration and put him into the mix in the republican primaries. one other issue is his health. francis suffered from sciatica, has only one lung and just turned 79. will he finally slow down? maybe even take a break? maybe. the only predictable thing about pope francis is that he will do the unpredictable. for "cbs this morning" allen pizzey, rome. >> i don't see him taking a break, do you, guys? >> a remarkable impact on how we think about church. >> interesting to see what he does in this next year. >> can we just say, when he was here you covered him in the united states. one of the best pictures, it had
>> i did get to meet him. >> i've held hands with the dalai lama and shaken hands with the pope. life is good. stars like america ferrera or saluting rita moreno at this year's kennedy center honors. >> when you followed your dream, you gave me the allowance to follow mine. >> how she fought prejudice on the way to stardom. plus, did you get any swarovski crystals under your tree this christmas? we'll take you to the austrian alps to see how all that glitters doesn't have to be gold. and an abbey road odyssey. how the professional home of the beatles is keeping true to its

weather. they recently wrapped up their expedition in the gulf of mexico. they track and tag sharks all around the world. we were there when they were catching, tagging and releasing their first shark in north atlantic waters. jeff was also with the team on its latest trip. jeff, good morning. christmas. the gulf has received enormous attention in recent years, mostly for what went wrong. the deepwater horizon oil spill to start. five years after that disaster parts of the gulf of teaming with life, including o-search studying how many sharks are there and where they're going. >> yeah, finely, looking good old cool. >> she's a 10-foot-long tiger shark, the first tiger shark at the laboratory. >> here it is, finely the tiger
mexico. >> last month this group wrapped an expedition off the coast of texas. chris fischer is their leader. >> tiger shark, sort of the leader of the gulf? >> yes. tiger sharks love to come into beaches and estuaries as well as roam offshore. >> they tagged four sharks with gps trackers, two tigers and two hammerheads. they're posting all their data to their website, in the process bringing global attention to a body of water with an often muddy reputation. >> a lot of people think of the gulf as a mess, largely because of the spill. what kind of shape is the gulf in? >> i think the gulf is in pretty good shape. if you talk to the people out there fishing, it's rebounding, full of life. >> and he hopes, full of sharks. removed too many from their natural place at the top of the food chain and second tier predators would roam. uneaten and unchecked, devouring
throwing the entire ecosystem offbalance. in the gulf ocearch is optimistic. over the past few decades, the influx of oil rigs has created artificial reefs. >> right now we are 30 miles offshore. there are about 4,000 active oil rigs in the gulf of mexico. above water they are steel, stark, industrial. but under water, an explosion of life. >> you also have to keep in mind these oil and gas platforms have been in for decades. no one quite realized how great ecosystems would be formed around them. >> greg stunz is the director at texas a&m at corpus christi. >> we'll be fishing -- >> he's one of the scientists working in the gulf. >> you've been down diving on many of these reefs. >> yes. >> when you first saw one of these undersea worlds, what was your reaction? >> just the sheer size is quite amazing. from the surface of the water
nothing. as soon as you dive down a few feet and see the size of building under water. and then of course the next thing you see is the abundance - of marine life, particularly fish that are just everywhere. >> over time man made structures become artificial reefs by attracting a whole food chain. eventually the lions of the ocean, sharks. they also attract controversy. usually when a rig is retired and a decision needs to be made, should parts of it stay and be permanently reefed or go. >> this is a tricky issue, though. everybody agrees that there are environmental benefits to it, but some say we're against reefing regardless of where it is or when it is because it just encourages the oil companies to drill more, true? >> well, yes and no. many say it's just ocean dumping, you're just leaving the trash. believe it or not the oil and gas companies don't want to do this.
worth way more for them to bring in it. a lot of the concern some may have is it's oil and gas and oil and gas doesn't always have the best reputation. >> look, ocean first. great grandchildren first. if you want an abundant future for the gulf of mexico, it would be an absolute catastrophe to not reef every single one of those rigs you can. >> for now, big oil's trash is fischer's treasure. finely and her friends will provide data scientists have never had. where gulf sharks are mating, breeding and traveling. what threats are real, versus imagined. >> it's kind of crazy to be pioneering this kind of work in 2015. you would have thought it was done a long, long time ago and it's crucial because we should all be absolutely terrified of an ocean with no sharks. if that is the case, there simply will not be fish sandwiches for our children to eat.
