  • Why Do We Judge Others?

    5 Tendencies that Ambush our “Better” Thinking

    Blog | Mick Ukleja | September 15, 2016

    No matter how much we think we shouldn’t judge others, we are conditioned to do it. Making quick judgments can lead to regrets. We narrate and share stories about others – usually without most of the facts. We know that caution should be used when making judgments about someone’s character or choices. Largely these are based on surface information leading to skewed impressions and outright mistakes. The result? Damage – personally and relationally!

    Simon Says: Do What Jesus Says!

    Blog | Phyllis Hennecy Hendry | August 03, 2016

    One of my favorite childhood games was “Simon Says.” The leader has so much fun telling people to do silly things: hop on one leg, pat their heads and stomachs at the same time, or turn around ten times just because “Simon said.”

    However, the greatest part of the game was when the leader could catch people off guard. In a hasty moment, they would do something without Simon’s permission and have to leave the game. The person who listened carefully and only did what Simon said won the game.

  • There is a most precious resource, of which we are universally poor.

    It’s not gold. It’s not silver. Regardless of how hard we might try, we can never have enough of it – and we certainly can’t buy more.

    That resource, of course, is time.

    And the craziest part about time is that we have no clue how much of it is left. As a haunting song lyric from Anna Nalick reminds us, “Life’s like an hourglass, glued to the table.”

  • Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr: A Call to Service

    Blog | Gilbert Camacho | January 18, 2016

    On the third Monday in January, America celebrates the birth of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

    For many, this day has become just another holiday; although not reaching the same level of commercialization. When was the last time you saw a television commercial for a Martin Luther King, Jr. Clearance Sale? Like Rodney Dangerfield, “it gets no respect;” but I don’t think Dr. King would mind. In fact, it even seems fitting, because this day is not about sales or profit margins; it’s about service.

    Servant Leadership: Serving Their Best Interests

    Blog | Luke Kuepfer | December 17, 2015

    “She will give birth to a son, and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from their sins.” (Matthew 1:21, NIV)

    In Matthew 1:21, an angel instructed Joseph to name Mary’s son 'Jesus' “because he will save his people from their sins.”

    One must ask several questions: Did the Jews know that their greatest need was salvation from their self-centered interests? Did they realize what had gotten them into their present mess or why they were enslaved under the cruel rule of Rome?
