Hope Expanded

Written by Dr. D. Kim Hamblin

In this season of hope our attention is drawn to the celebration of the hope given us by the birth of Jesus Christ. In my practice, I have always considered hope an important component in therapy as well as in spirituality. For this reason, the word hope has been visible in my office in letters that have stood on my bookcase for several years. In thinking about the topic of hope in writing this article, I found several quotes and Bible verses that further stimulated my thinking.

Work to Build, Prepare to Defend

Written by Sam Whatley

Much of life is about rebuilding. This is obvious the older you get. Once you are past forty something you start to realize that there is more sand at the bottom of your hourglass than there is at the top. When you are young you are trying to build your life. After middle age, you start trying to rebuild the walls that have fallen down from neglect. They may be walls of physical health, finances, family relationships, or your own spiritual walk with Christ. But those areas are going to require work and diligence to repair.

It was hard to imagine Christmas displays so far from Christmas.

Faith at Work

  • Brad Armagost Executive Vice President, ServisFirst Bank

    RRJ:  Growing up, you attended church with your grandparents and mom and were baptized at age 12.  Was this when you realized your need for Jesus’ offer of salvation? 

     

    Brad:  No, my baptism felt very ceremonial, like it was a graduation event for taking the baptism class at church.  It wasn’t until Young Life camp at Windy Gap, North Carolina that I realized Jesus could truly change my life.  I realized that His path to eternal life was a better choice, my peer group was healthier, and just the experience of His grace was indescribable.
