What Are You Determined To Do?

I got up this morning with the determination to do more, be more & act more.  God said to me “rise & be determined”, “rise & be courageous”.  I’m going to ask you, what did God tell you to do today?  Did you act on what he said, or did you continue to sit,...

Minimum Wage And Why We Should Raise It

Why are we debating whether or not to raise the wages of the American people?  What makes it ok for those who are struggling making what they deem an acceptable wage to keep them barely above the poverty line?  How do you justify having the “richest” society in the...

City Homeless

What are we really doing about the city’s rising homeless population? It seems to be there are more folks who are out on the streets, in our parks and our street intersections. Why is this? Who is helping? When does it get to be a large enough issue for the city to...

Mental Illness Treatment (Or Lack Thereof)
