Why Are We Angry?

11-20-17_anger.jpg

Everywhere we turn, people are being mean to one another. Sure, we have the “big” issues like mass shootings and so forth. Yeah, definitely anger at work. But even on a “smaller” scale, we see evidence of anger all around us. Road rage. Social media. Politics. You name it. Anger is a natural human emotion. Jesus expressed His anger at the money-changers in the temple. The Bible exhorts us not to “let the sun go down on your anger.” It’s what we do with angry feelings that’s important. But a deeper question to probe is why are we angry? There are so many irrational expressions of anger. For many people, it comes from life’s wounds, traumas and negative experiences. Let’s delve into this very important topic. Call in with your take on this, 1-800-585-9396.

Feeling Appreciated

11-15-17_appreciated

Oh, so true! People are quick to notice and point out when things are not getting done. But on the flip side, many great things are being accomplished on a daily basis that are routinely overlooked. Almost as though we expect those things to get done and there is little need for a thank you or a word of encouragement.  That is why so many folks feel unappreciated at work and at home.  It doesn’t matter how much they do, the result is still the same, no recognition for the effort that was made.  This all can lead to resentment, frustration, and anger.  Let’s talk about this from a Christian perspective and see if we can come to a greater understanding.  Call us at 1-800-585-9396.

Honor Your Father and Mother

11-14-17_older_parent.jpg

We are all familiar with the Commandment, honor your father and mother.  This is a directive from God.  But sometimes our parents expect way too much. They can be overly demanding even using guilt as a way to get you to respond and take care of their needs.  Some parents have a difficult time letting go of their children, falling into a type of co-dependency.  These situations can become frustrating and even destructive. So how do you find balance and peace with everything in your life, your spouse, your children, your work, and your parents.  Let’s talk about it.  Call in to 1-800-585-9396.

Do You Feel Safe in Your Place of Worship?

11-9-17_safe.jpg

We felt the need to address this topic in light of the recent tragedy that took place at the Baptist Church in Texas.  Also, remembering the Charleston, SC church shooting as well.  Houses of worship should be places where we can be at peace, feel safe and secure while we give praise to God.  Sadly, in this day and age, churches are not off-limits to terrorists, or extremists.  Now that churches are fair game, how should we respond.  Should we have armed guards at the entrances of our churches?  Should we enlist civilians to stand guard and protect the congregation?  Or are we going too far with this mindset?  Let’s talk about this unfortunate reality on Thursday’s Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie.  Call in and share your take, 1-800-585-9396.

I Can’t Sleep, But I Can Pray

11-1-17_Pray-n-bed

We all have difficulty sleeping at night sometimes. Maybe you are the type of person that consistently wakes up around 3AM. (That is Debbie’s issue) Now that you are up staring at the ceiling, do your thoughts turn to prayer?  If so, do you pick up the rosary or do you just start talking to God as if He was in the room.  Some of the most heartfelt prayers are made during the middle of the night.  Share with us your experience of turning to pray when you cannot rest. Call us at 1-800-585-9396.
