EXPANDING WATERWAYS VS RAISING STRUCTURES
Discussed by Bill King
with Bill King (www.BillKingBlog.net)

We all know that Harris County has a major flood control problem. What is the solution, though?

Houston political activist Bill King has some answers – and some questions – in today’s segment.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What are the three basic strategies for mitigating flood damages?

Should houses be built/repaired higher off the ground? How high is high enough? What are the concerns with this solution?

How much money has the city collected for flood control damage/repairs? Where is the money going?

Listen as Bill King also discusses a possible ordinance on the November ballot which would allow the voters the opportunity to choose where the money is distributed.

FEMA is rezoning the flood maps. Is this a good or a bad move?

Which City Council Members voted for and against the latest ordinance? What requirements does this ordinance include?



BETTER EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE MILITARY KIDS
Discussed by Peter Murphy
with Invest in Education Foundation (www.investineducation.org)


Part 1 of 2

Our nation’s security and the education of its children are two critically important issues that coincide with the need to ensure quality educational opportunities for children of active-duty military. Recent studies have found that providing additional education alternatives for children of military families can contribute to their quality of life and ultimately the retention of needed, experienced personnel.

New guest, Peter Murphy, will be discussing Impact Aid, Education Savings Accounts, and HR5199 and how it can help.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is the average age of our active-duty military personnel?

While serving, are active-duty military personnel often re-assigned to other areas of the country and internationally? What affect does this have on the children?

What is “Impact Aid”? Does this include Education Savings Accounts?



PART 2 OF 2 - BETTER EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE MILITARY KIDS
Discussed by Peter Murphy
with Invest in Education Foundation (www.investineducation.org)

Could some of the dollars already budgeted by the DOD through “Impact Aid” be shifted to the parents of school-aged children in the form of Education Savings Accounts?

Who opposes Education Savings Accounts?

Will school districts “really” lose a lot of money if ESA’s were adopted?



CROWN MINISTRIES DEVOTION
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s devotion from Crown Financial Ministries is entitled: “The Cost of Compromise” and is taken from Romans 1:28 “Since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, He gave them over to a deprived mind to do what ought not to be done.

What is the cost of compromise, especially when it comes to God? Oftentimes, an inner conviction about sin begins to decrease and the sins, in turn, begin to increase.

Have you allowed yourself to compromise? There is Good News! “Our greatest advantage is that God will restore anyone who will acknowledge sin and return to His way,” Larry Burkett writes in today’s devotion. Amen!

Further Scripture reading: Judges Chapters 10-12



THE NAMES OF GOD
Discussed by Rabbi Michael Vowell
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 2

Everything that we need is found in the Bible, including the names of God. But, who is God? What does His name mean? How many names represent the name of God?

Each day this week, Rabbi Michael Vowell brings us to a closer understanding of God by studying His name. Rabbi Michael Vowell heads the Congregation Beth Messiah in Houston, one of the largest Jewish congregations in the nation.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What does “Adonai” mean? Why do Jews say Adonai instead of the name Jesus?

Why did Greek writers place the “AOA” within “YHWH”? Did this confuse people? Did people begin to mispronounce YHWH because of the three letters?

Is saying Jehovah right or wrong?

Why is “God” always capitalized as “LORD” in the Bible?

How many times is Adonai used in the Bible? HINT: It’s a lot!!

Scripture Reference: Exodus 2:11-12 Did this event open up Moses’s eyes to what was really happening? Did Moses require God’s help?

Rabbi Vowell says this: “At a certain point in our lives, we have to stop trying to always be in charge and let Him conduct His rescue operation.

Tune in tomorrow as Rabbi Vowell shares more on Exodus 3:11.

IT’S THE WEEK AFTER EASTER
Discussed by Pastor David Fleming
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 2

Champion Forest Baptist Church Senior Pastor David Fleming continues with “The Road He Chose” series with a fantastic sermon from Luke 24:13-35.

It’s the Week after Easter” will challenge you to put yourself in the disciple’s shoes. How would you feel if the Son of God – your leader – your friend – had just been crucified, but then showed up again?

Questions/Issues Discussed:

II. Question: vs 17-25
Why were the men so sad if they knew Jesus would be back? What was their response when Jesus asked them about their sadness? Did they not believe him?
Why was Jesus confused over the fact that the men were leaving Jerusalem?

Real Life Question: Do you often go out to eat after church on Sunday? How do you treat your waiter/waitress? Do you speak with kindness? What is your conversation like? Can others tell you just went to church?

Reflection question: Has the cross really made a difference in your life?

Pastor David Fleming encourages you to visit Champion Forest Baptist Church in NW Houston this Sunday! CFBC has Life Groups classes (Sunday School) for all ages and walks of life, including Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, as well as several service times and locations to choose from.
