Landmarks

Written by Bob Crittendon

Symbolism can be very important in conveying ideas and remembering the past. Throughout America, there are religious landmarks that can reinforce the significance of faith in our land.

The Newsmax website has compiled a list of its “Top 50 Religious Landmarks in America.” Some are not expressly Christian, but there are a number of these that have a direct tie to the Christian faith.  I have picked out a few on which to concentrate.

Make Time for Yourself

Written by Kemi Searcy

One of my first memories of flying in an airplane was when a very pretty flight attendant appeared and started instructing the passengers about safety. What stood out to me the most then, and every time I have boarded a plane since, is, “Put your oxygen mask on first before helping others.”  Why is this so vital in ensuring survival? If you don’t have your oxygen mask on your own face, you won’t be alive long enough to help anyone else of course.

Whose Neighbor Am I?

Written by Sam Whatley

Recently I visited an elderly friend (let’s call her Adeline) in a well-to-do suburb. Adeline is a widow, living alone in a four-bedroom two-story home. Being over 85, she seldom trudges up the fifteen steps to the upper floor. But she is not really alone. Adeline has neighbors.

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.

Our Holy Quest: Learning and Living God's Word

Written by Jay Wolf

Our First Baptist Family has a wonderful tradition of providing all of our first graders with a special Children’s Bible.  I write each of the children a special note in their Bible and we dedicate a Sunday evening service to presenting the new Bibles to these precious children to convey to them the vast importance of being a life-long student of the Scriptures.  A few weeks ago we presented 53 children with their special Bibles.

  • The Incredibles, Cars… and The Pilgrim’s Progress: Interview with a Pixar Artist

    Generation after generation, Christians have devoured John Bunyan’s great allegorical work The Pilgrim’s Progress. It remains among the most-read books in all of human history. Among those who have been influenced by it is Garrett Taylor, an artist who works at Pixar Animation Studios and has been involved in some of their most important films. As a side project, he developed some beautiful maps of Christian’s journey to the Celestial City. Here is an interview I recently completed with Garrett in which he tells about his work, his salvation, and his illustrations of Bunyan’s world.

Faith at Work

  • Jason Isbell, VP of Legal and Governmental Affairs, Alabama Bankers Association

    RRJ:  Jason, you have worn many hats in your professional career… from being a lawyer for politicians to being a lobbyist for bankers.  What is one standard you live by no matter what “hat” you are wearing?

     

    Jason:  The phrase “honesty is the best policy” might sound like an old cliché, but it’s a statement that has served me well.  If the general public made a list of trustworthy professions, chances are high that “attorney” and “lobbyist” would not be near the top.  Knowing that, I’ve worked especially hard to try and cultivate a reputation of being an honest broker.  To me, that means not only telling the truth but also presenting the opposing viewpoints so that folks can see all sides of the issue.  There are times when that standard might cause you to lose a battle, but it will never cause you to lose the war.
