How many of you have heard the statement all religions lead to the same place? There are 7 billion of us on the planet and most of us believe in some kind of Higher power. So, do all religions lead to the same place? In this video, William A. Horton will examine this question.
So, there is a common argument that all things need a cause and since all things need a cause then God must also need a cause. The conclusion is that if God needed a cause, then God is not God. Let us take a closer look at who created God.
How do you define ‘miracles’? A miracle is commonly described as an event ‘that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws.’ Given that definition, most scientists already believe in at least one miracle. To find out more check out this video.
If God exists, why is most of the universe hostile to life? If you look at the universe it appears from what we can see that life as we know it could not exists. Earth is just a pale blue dot in a huge hostile universe. When we look at a satellite picture of the earth from the outermost reaches of space the earth looks like a tiny blue dot in the middle of an amazingly beautiful picture of chaos. If you look at the universe as pretty as it looks in pictures it is hostile to life, but does that make the case against God? In this video, you will find out why the earth actually makes a case for God.
How does a Christian explain the concept of evil? In this video, we will look at how.

“God sent a man, John the Baptist, to tell about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony.”
In essence, the believer is the bridge between the unbeliever and Jesus. John the Baptist was described as a witness, born to proclaim all the wonders of Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God who was to take away the sins of the world. John’s primary purpose was to connect people with the Savior of their souls.
Now, just as John was called to be a witness, so is every believer. Our words and actions form the link between the lost and Christ. If we choose not to shine for Him, the unbeliever is left with no hope of redemption
As it was John’s responsibility to prepare for the first coming of Christ, so it is our responsibility to prepare for the second. How are we to do so? By proclaiming the glorious good news of redemption!
Our God saves but He needs us to be His hands and feet. We are called to tell the world about His goodness and love. Are you doing your part?
Let’s talk, here are some questions you can ask yourself to dig a little deeper into how you are as a Servant Leader.
What does it mean to you to be a servant leader?
What characteristics do you see in servant leaders you have worked for?
What are the pros and cons in your opinion on being a servant leader?
What do you predict would happen if you become a servant leader?
How could you take what you heard in this video and apply it to your leadership?

Daniel H. Pink’s book When:
The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing covers the topic of you guessed it
TIME. We have all heard of “HOW TO BOOKS.” In fact, walk into any book store across
America, and you will find whole sections of “HOW TO” books. Daniel H. Pink
says that he has written a “WHEN TO” book.
H. Pink argues that we should make “WHEN” we do something as
important as “WHAT” we do. This book answers the question of when is
the best time to work on projects that involve critical thinking, when we
should work out, when we should start a job, when we should quite a job, when
we should get married and more. Daniel H. Pink takes studies from peer-reviewed
social scientists and discovers that there are idea times WHEN we should do almost
everything in our lives.
This book helped me to rethink the
importance of time altogether. After finishing this book, I have adjusted how I
spend critical peak times in my day. When:
The Scientific Secrets of Perfect Timing showed me how to determine my peak
times of performance and structure my schedule around that. Now I can
synchronize my work that requires the most analytical thinking around the times
my mind is the most active.
Before reading this book, I thought
very little about the importance of time. We have all heard that saying, timing
is everything, but I rarely spent any time thinking about when I did things. I
generally tried to stack as much into the day as I possibly could. Now I
realize that if I know the best times when to do things I can get far more done
in a much more effective way.
This book covers much more than just
how to schedule your day. As I mentioned above, it goes over a wide variety of
topics and when you should do them. One of the fascinating topics Daniel H.
Pink covers is beginnings, endings and in between. The patterns found in when
we start a project, when we are in the middle of a project and when are at the
end of a project will give you fresh insight on how to manage your projects. If
you are a leader of a project, this chapter will help you understand the psychology
behind the people in your group and how you can get more out of them.
I would recommend this book if you have ever thought, when is the best time to make a decision, or when is the best time to work on a specific project, or if you are just interested in social science and how people inner clock work. In this book, Daniel gives you several time-hacks to help you best spend your time and optimize your WHEN. This book you will help you discover how to best live, work and succeed.
