o7What are your thoughts on a federal court judge's ruling last week that the "under God" reference in the Pledge of Allegiance" is unconstitutional? f7 "In God We Trust" is our national motto. It is on our currency, in our National Anthem, and is expressed in our Declaration Of Independence as the rationale for our existence as a nation of equality. "In God We Trust" is part of our DNA as Americans. It demands no particular denominational allegiance, nor does it command particular individuals to rightly bow before its divine referent.

I have been pondering the concept of redemption. Certainly we are all sinners. If not for the salvation that God offers us through Christ's sacrifice on the cross, none of us would experience salvation. How can we begin to understand God's design for the redemption that man is so desperately in need of? For us to be redeemed means that we are released from our sin. But for this to take place, there must be a payoff. Redemption is God's way of reuniting sinful man to Himself. It is the means by which we are forgiven and able to fellowship with God and receive salvation.

Give thanks for friends Even during the appearance of great danger in the world, it is still a very wonderful time to take inventory of the gifts that have been given us throughout our lives. The more Thanksgivings and Christmases I experience, the more I realize that for me the greatest gift of all is my friendships. The precious hours we spend together, whether in school, church, home or at work, are so often overlooked as we search for "something" outside of our relationships that we think will bring us happiness.

Have you ever experienced the divine protection of God? Most of us as Christians would acknowledge that we have, at one time or another. Can you look back on a specific moment where you were in physical danger and you prayed and God intervened? Maybe it wasn't a miracle, but you knew God had answered prayer and protected you. I recall one such event. It was before I was married. I was driving home from the beach with a girlfriend from church. We had spent the evening at Manhattan Beach having dinner.

The Rev. Stan Howse writes how powerfully he was moved by the "A Beautiful Mind" movie sentiment that "something extraordinary can happen in this world!" I would like to point out that something extraordinary has already happened in the world, some 2,000 years ago. God stepped out of eternity and came to earth in the person of Jesus Christ. And while anyone can claim he is something great, even God Himself, this Jesus of Nazareth, authenticated His claim by no less than rising from the dead!

Daniel Henderson, a Christian pastor in Atlanta, believes many faithful people still ?don?t know how to pray effectively,? according to a recent article on CNN.com. He says most Christians pray during a crisis or pray a grocery list, ?making God a lifeline of last resort.? What do you believe is the proper way to pray without making it seem as if you?re using God as a ?lifeline of last resort?? How do you teach your faithful on effective ways of prayer? ? Henderson is right.

As I write, I just finished helping one of my daughters master her multiplication (I pray!), did several loads of laundry, cleaned up after another daughter with the stomach flu, and cleaned the stove after my sick son asked for soup. In the middle of the storm, I tried to sneak moments of calm to call back a few patients I needed to reschedule. I know we can all relate to days like these whether we have children or not. As I reflect on the day, for some reason I say it was “a good day.” It certainly was not perfect.

The book of Nehemiah in the Old Testament is an interesting study. It details the account of Nehemiah's journey to Jerusalem to rebuild the wall that had been destroyed there. There was a Jewish remnant that had survived the attack of Jerusalem by King Nebuchadnezzar and had been exiled to Babylon. When Cyrus came into power as King of Persia, his heart was moved to build a temple for God at Jerusalem. He allowed any exile who felt led to go up to Jerusalem and assist (II Chronicles 36)

A pair of scientific reports released in recent weeks are related to life on Earth: One raises the possibility that the planet was jump-started by a comet, and the other calculates that Earth will end in 1.75 billion to 3.25 billion years. Q: How do these reports fit in with your teachings or beliefs? There's a joke about some scientists who tell God that he's no longer needed because they believe they have the knowledge to make a man just as God reportedly did in the Bible.
