RELOCATING YOUR AGING PARENTS
Discussed by Gregg Gomez-Mira
with Home Instead Senior Care (www.HomeInstead.com)


Part 1 of 3

We worry about our parents as they age – and rightfully so. Most of us discuss this tough topic with a spouse or siblings, but it is difficult to approach the matter with our parents. After all, our parents have lived a long, happy life and they just want to be left in peace.

But, this is one topic that cannot be pushed to the back burner. Gregg Gomez-Mira, with Home Instead Senior Care, has some great tips and suggestions on how to get the conversation started during the next three segments today.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Are most seniors afraid to give up their independence?

Terry tells a personal story of his own mother resisting the inevitable years ago…

Does it often take a catastrophic event before a parent realizes a change must occur?

What is the 40-70 rule?

Is a daily phone call or visit necessary?

with Home Instead Senior Care (www.HomeInstead.com)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Several holidays are approaching over the next few months. If you are planning a visit home, Gregg suggests you check three things at your parents’ or aging relatives’ home.

How important is early communication?

PSALMS FOR LIVING
Discussed by Terry Lowry
with Host of the What's UP Radio Program

Today’s Psalms for Living is taken from Psalm 92:1-3   1It is good to give thanks to the Lord, to sing praises to your name, O Most High; 2to declare your steadfast love in the morning, and your faithfulness by night, 3to the music of the lute and the harp, to the melody of the lyre.”

How often do you praise and worship throughout the week? Just on Sunday mornings? Or do you start and end each day with worship?

Music has definitely changed over the millennial, especially Christian music. Can you imagine using only a lute and harp in church services today to worship God? I can’t! Mark writes how Martin Luther even recognized that music was too limited and started writing Christian lyrics to songs heard in bar taverns! Oh my goodness! What a scandal!

Mark also writes about hippie songs that he and his friends listened to! Was this another scandal or the beginning of something new? Listen in as Terry reads more from today’s devotion on the importance of changes in worship music.

DEVOTION: LAWS AND THE TORAH
Discussed by Mark Lanier
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 2

This week, Mark Lanier is previewing a new devotional book he is writing on the Torah, which will hopefully be released next spring. Listen in this week as Mark dissects the first five books of the Old Testament. He also has some interesting information about Noah’s name, the design of a priest’s robe, boring laws, and camping!

Mark Lanier will be back next week with his series: Paul – A Legal Case Study.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Good, diligent Hebrews read through the Torah every year. This is how Mark Lanier is designing his new devotional book! Listen in as he explains how hard it actually is to follow this guideline!

Facts from Genesis: What does Noah’s name mean? And, why did Noah find favor in the eyes of the Lord?

Exodus 39:30 30They made the plate of the holy crown of pure gold, and wrote on it an inscription, like the engraving of a signet, 'Holy to the Lord.' 31And they tied to it a cord of blue to fasten it on the turban above, as the Lord had commanded Moses.” Listen as Mark explains why he loves these verses so much. Tune in tomorrow to hear the rest!

FOLLOWING JESUS
Discussed by Dr. Stephen Trammell
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 2

Pastor Stephen Trammel is presenting the sermon this week. Pastor Trammel is the lead pastor at Champion Forest Baptist Church North Klein Campus. He is opening up a NEW sermon series, Following Jesus, which we will be following for the next few months. This week’s sermon is entitled: “Discipleship 101: From Faith to Following” using Mark 1: 16-20, when Jesus called the first disciples.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Pastor Trammel concluded his segment yesterday by discussing the first of three decisions that will help you move from “faith to following”. The first decision is to place your faith in Jesus alone for salvation.

What happened in that moment – a divine transaction – when you realized your need for a Savior? Whatever you’ve done, or will do, Jesus has already conquered it! But, what does that mean? Listen as Pastor Trammel passionately explains by using his own personal salvation testimony.

The second decision that Pastor Trammel believes benefits Christians in their “faith to following” walk is: identify with Christ through baptism by immersion. This is a controversial topic among the different Christian denominations. Tune in tomorrow for more!

If you have never accepted Jesus as your personal Savior, please don’t hesitate. You never know when your time will be to stand before God. Call Champion Forest Baptist Church at 281.440.3800 and speak to a licensed Christian counselor or pastor to make that decision today!
