Reconciled as One

Written by Doug Davis, Messiah Church in Prattville

Over the past few weeks, we have witnessed part of our country at its worse.  People in a country that was built on populations from around the world, coming together in this “melting pot” called America.  Our founding fathers in the Declaration of Independence said; “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness” and our pledge to our nation is as “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all!”  But what we have seen in the past few weeks is a division within the country over ideologies, race, creed and politics.  Yes, we have the right to speak our minds, but at the cost of our neighbor’s property and rights?  I think not.  Especially, if we are to align ourselves with the Christian Church.

Dave Ramsey has the Answers to Your Questions!

Written by Dave Ramsey

Using the Grandchild for Money

 

Q.  My wife and I have been helping our adopted daughter financially for some time. She’s 25, has been married for three years, and we don’t see this cycle stopping anytime soon. The worst part is, they will often throw in that our grandchild will go without something unless we help. We’re certain this isn’t teaching them to stand on their own feet, but we don’t know what else to do.

Listening as a Lifestyle

Written by Christy Holding, LPC

Ms. Christy, you just don’t get it.  You don’t understand.”  My client, a feisty, brave and loveable 19-year-old female was telling me about a difficult situation that she had been involved with at work.  And this was her response to me.  The sad part about it is that I thought I was really listening!  Her words were sobering and so I paused for reflection.

Stop Procrastinating...Get On With It!

Written by Kemi Searcy

Maybe you can relate to Craig from the UK. He wrote in a blog, “I bought a book called 52 Steps To Defeating Procrastination. I’ve still never read it - it was over 10 years ago, and I’m not even sure where it is now.”

    If I Had Two Lives

    by Dan Vorm

     

    I feel like I should have been familiar with the name Costas Macris, but confess it was unknown to me until a biography unexpectedly showed up in the mail. Written by Dan Vorm, If I Had Two Lives is a stirring tale of an amazing life. I don’t know how it got to me, but I’m glad it did.

Faith at Work

  • Kim Kervin, Lawyer, Prattville AL

    RRJ:  Kim, you grew up in Athens, Alabama in a Christian home.  How did your parents create an environment for you to know God’s love through Christ? 

     

    Kim:  Growing up, my parents were both hard working. My father worked in a textile plant in Decatur, Alabama and my mother worked in the home.  We attended church on Sunday mornings, but were not really involved in other church activities. My parents also used our home and life routines to create an environment for us to connect to God and know his love through Christ. While I was raised in a Christian home, it was much later before I invited Jesus into my heart.
