Avoiding Bad Decisions - Willingness To Change
Willingness To ChangeIf we're unwilling to change it's unlikely we're really seeing our need. As one of our traditions, Willingness To Change is often described as the key to recovery, and for good reason. People who won't change, refuse to do so because they haven't been convinced their need is great enough. And while this may seem rational, it's only when we get into the consequences and fallout associated with not changing that the state of being unwilling to change can be seen to be anything but rational.

Happy New Accountability
Happy New Accountability
It’s not easy to write a New Year’s message as I am well aware that seasonally familiar words like “resolutions” and “goals” can quickly start sounding like those of Charlie Brown’s teacher: “wah wha wha” in our ears. For this reason I will keep my message short, hopefully sweet, and to the point.

Eternal Fellowship - Choose Whom You Will Serve
Eternal Fellowship - Choose Whom You Will ServeIt is not good for man to be alone (Gen 2:18). This is one of the first statements that God made about his creation as recorded in the Bible and how true it is. It is not good for us to beAlastair Sim as Scrooge (1951) alone. One of the greatest fears that people face today is loneliness. Coming toward the twilight years of their lives with no one to spend it with. Having spent so much time and effort on pursuits that have availed them of nothing only to find out that they have cut off every single thread of friendship they ever had. Social sites like FaceBook and MySpace thrive because people need to have relationships with other people.

Making Your Mark - Willingness To Change
Prehistoric Fossilized FootprintI recently came back from the Berkshires where I took the family to visit the Berkshire Museum (http://www.berkshiremuseum.org/) A part of one of the exhibits is a piece of fossilized clay that has the foot prints of a small dinosaur still visible. I couldn't stop looking at the piece of clay. Here was a set of prints from a creature that had lived millions of years ago.
