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.”

Finding Shelter

Written by Sam Whatley

When a wildfire sweeps across the scrub oak, sandy land of north Florida, south Alabama, and south Georgia many small animals find a place to hide, thanks to a creature called the gopher tortoise. This tortoise, about fifteen inches long and weighing eight to fifteen pounds, loves to dig in the sand. His front feet are like shovels. His back feet are strong and sturdy. Consequently, he can create large burrows. One in north Florida left a burrow that was 26 feet deep and 65 feet long. But that project was huge.

RRJ:  You mentioned that you were raised in a Christian home.  How instrumental do you think that foundation was in who you are today?

 

Ron:  Being raised in a Christian home was critical to everything I believe today.  It was the foundation for my life and lifestyle. I’m by no means perfect! I make mistakes like anyone else. I sin. I’m human. However, when I do make those mistakes, I know God is forgiving, and I ask for his forgiveness. Then I try to change and do better. I try to please God. I try to treat others the way I want to be treated. I learned that as a child. My mother and father were excellent examples of that as they displayed love for us in the home. We were raised in the church and learned the principles of Christian living…LOVE. The Bible doesn’t specifically address every situation we will be faced with in life, but the Christian principles I was taught still help me with those decisions.

A Practical Guide to Culture

by John Stonestreet & Brett Kunkle

 

Christians have an interesting relationship with culture. Culture is a word we love to use, but one we rarely pause to define. We speak of culture’s dangerous encroachment on the church, of our need to avoid it, engage it, or redeem it. But what is this culture thing anyway? It happens to be the subject of an excellent new book by John Stonestreet and Brett Kunkle. A Practical Guide to Culture is meant to help those who are helping the next generation navigate today’s world, and it does its job well.
