Finding an anchor in an anchorless world

We live in a world rife with social unrest, political chaos, competing ideologies and pressures to conform (or at least look the other way). Our belief systems are always being challenged if not directly attacked. So how do we find anchor? What keeps us from being swept up in the storm or crushed against the rocks? As always, there's an answer that has stood the test of time, and it (He) provides all the security we need. Tags:  Hope, Advent, Faith, Confidence, Tamasy

Before the first Thanksgiving

Long before "the first thanksgiving" in 1621 with the Pilgrims and Native Americans, there was an annual Thanksgiving meal shared among kinsmen that was even richer with meaning. Remembering it should set the tone for the celebration we enjoy today. Tags:  Thanksgiving, Theology of Work

Thick faith

Dependability is not based on customer reviews or marketing promises, it's built on personal experience. And that's how we come to know God as faithful and dependable - through experience. It's the key to growing thick faith. Tags:  Dependability, Faith, Trust, Campbell

Do you mean it?

Sometimes it’s just easier to just go along with something in the moment or flippantly give your word about something without ever actually committing to it. But if we want to be remarkable, we must first show ourselves to be dependable. Tags:  Dependability, Honesty, Trustworthy, Bowers

True to your word

When we have an important task that must be completed within a specific timeframe, we look for dependable people. Dependability is a valuable character trait that also reflects a person’s trustworthiness, honesty, and responsibility. Tags:  Got Questions, Dependability, Trustworthy

Bravery in the Bible

Bravery is not outward bravado. Bravery is acting in the face of fear, because we trust a God who is greater than what we’re up against. It is not wrong to be afraid, but it is wrong to let fear make our decisions. Tags:  Bravery, GotQuestions

Nothing to fear but fear itself

President Franklin D. Roosevelt said in his first inaugural address, "We have nothing to fear but fear itself." Yeh, right. How about fear of speaking up, or fear of public speaking, fear of rejection, or fear of missing out? We're all familiar with fear and anxiety in some form or another. So how does God factor into these moments? Tags:  Fear, Afraid, Confidence, Tamasy

It's time to be brave

At your work, are there certain subjects that are 'no fly zones' for what's appropriate in conversation? Politics, maybe? A position on some controversial issue like gun control or immigration, perhaps? What about matters concerning your faith? The Bible says we're to be ambassadors for Christ at work, but that's not always comfortable, it is? Tags:  Bravery, Workmatters, Boldness

Take ... courage

Sometimes courage means saying or doing something when others don't. Sometimes it's NOT acting when others are. But where does courage come from, and why does it matter? Tags:  Courage, Campbell
