Recently my pastor preached on the different names of God.  One name really caught my attention, Jehovah Rapha.  Jehovah Rapha simply means the God that heals you.  He can heal you physically, spiritually, and emotionally.  The Bible gives one very specific way on how to be healed by the Lord.

As the Fourth of July approaches, citizens across the country are looking forward to picnics, firework displays, parades, barbecues, or just a leisurely day away from the demands of work.  Independence Day is more than an opportunity for family and friends to gather for fun, food, and festivities – it is a celebration to commemorate the courage and faith of our founding fathers in their pursuit of liberty and the freedom to choose how they would worship God.

“Coffee, tea or me”.  What a great word description for the change that has occurred over the past fifty years.  Written in 1967, this phrase was immortalized in a book by the same name.  Since then mores, ethical behavior, and political correctness have been revolutionized, just as in the flight industry.  What once was a glamorous position of stewardess is now described by the career-title, flight attendant, a sophisticated way of saying “jack of all trades.”  Expected to serve meals, subdue terrorists, handle heart attacks, entertain babies, and placate irate passengers, they are not unlike our politicians of the day.  All I can say is, we’ve come a long way baby.
