President Obama decided to end the National Day of Prayer event at the White House, which for years was a staple for President George W. Bush, disappointing evangelicals and other religious groups who saw it as an important endorsement of the role of religion in guiding a nation. What message do you think rescinding the event sends? And what role, then, should the president and other government leaders play in promoting faith-based messages?   Scaling back the White House observance of the National Day of Prayer after so many years is an unwise decision, because this step sends a message that religious beliefs and values may not be central to the president’s agenda.

What advice do you give your congregants for God to take a greater role in their lives? Are there Bible studies, retreats, or service projects in your church that help your congregants turn their lives toward God? ? A deep desire to know God brings the comforting awareness of His Goodness into our lives. We?re all equipped with free will. Ernest Holmes, founder of Religious Science wrote, ?Man is a conscious, self-knowing mind, equipped with volition and choice; he is an individual and can do as he chooses.

Excuse me if I yawn. The 46th Annual Glendale Mayor’s Prayer Breakfast was held at — gulp — 6:30 a.m. yesterday morning and I’m still sleepy. I’m not a morning person and had never attended a prayer breakfast before but was excited to have the opportunity Thursday. The breakfast was held at the Glendale Civic Auditorium and for an event that was taking place so early in the morning (I mean, really — the moon was still up as I traveled to Glendale)

We are all part of the Body of Christ. Not one of us is better than the other. We all serve a unique purpose in supporting one another toward God?s intended will. We may feel we are mature or that we have ?arrived? somehow, or perhaps that we are only to give to others and not receive. But no matter how long we have been a Christian and what function we serve, whether clergy or lay people, we all need one another to grow into who God not only intended us to be, but to also fulfill God?

Here we are — already in March and it is daylight saving time. One of the things I look forward to this weekend is the time change. Yes, on March 8 we will “spring forward.” It is a proven fact that smoke detectors save lives, so remember to replace the batteries on your smoke detector(s) when changing your clocks this weekend. Did you know in hard economic times, businesses that maintain their marketing come back stronger? There are ways to market smarter and your Chamber is one of those sources you can utilize for your business.

Christian and Jewish faithful will begin to observe their respective holy days, with observances of Lent, Purim and Passover taking place all over the world. What does the Bible teach us about entering these holy days with a sense of prayer? For Christians, Lent is the 40 days of preparation for Easter, which this year is on April 12. The 40 days echo Jesus’ 40 days in the desert, his time of testing before his ministry. The Gospels tell us of Jesus in a struggle with Satan, who tempts him to use his powers for shortcuts to glory.

Christian and Jewish faithful will begin to observe their respective holy days, with observances of Lent, Purim and Passover taking place all over the world. What does the Bible teach us about entering these holy days with a sense of prayer?   Even though Lent represents a specific time frame — the 40 days that Jesus prayed and fasted before his crucifixion, the Bible’s underlying message about preparing for Holy Days is to be consistently in communion with God, to know our Divine Heritage, and to understand that we all belong to One Family in the Kingdom of God. In Matthew 17 of the Holy Bible, Jesus had taken Peter, James and John high on a mountain where his Transfiguration took place and, “His face shone like the sun and his clothes became as white as the light.

Many charities have reported a decrease in the amount of donations received due to the poor state of the economy. In what ways can people be charitable even if they are not able to give monetarily? Perhaps it is time to think differently about ways in which we can support charities. Our Master Teacher, Jesus, praised the widow who gave her two copper coins (which amounted to one penny) to the temple treasury. She put in all that she had, her whole living. This story is commonly known as “The Widow’s Mite,” (Mark 13:43)
