  •  Retirement planning is important for all individuals; however, it is especially important for women. At some point during their lives, 80 to 90 percent of women will be solely responsible for their own finances. Unfortunately for the majority of them, it will be later in life. Women tend to have shorter work histories than men, as a result of entering and leaving the workforce due to raising children. In addition, fewer women participate in employer-sponsored retirement plans compared to men. 

  •  God made us to have relationships – with him and with other people. Since the time of Adam and Eve maintaining relationships has been a major struggle. We have to work to keep relationships up to date, because strained relationships cause much unhappiness.

    How do we handle conflict and strive for unity? In unity there is tremendous power and potential, but people don’t always get along. Our concern then is in reducing conflict and increasing cooperation.

  •  How many times have you heard, “I have said that before.” (Maybe accompanied by, “Do you hear well?”)

    Then there is the more disparaging, “I’ve heard that before .…”

    Faith community people believe in the power of ditto, too. We have one and three year cycles of repeating valuable scripture passages. Same words – but we are different in some ways each time around?

  • The theme for this year’s Ready Campaign promoting September as National Preparedness Month is Resolve to Be Ready in 2012. This public awareness drive encourages individuals and community leaders to make the resolution to take the necessary steps to be prepared for emergencies.
