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!

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.

  • 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.
