FEMA AND NATURAL DISASTERS
Discussed by Drew White
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)


Part 1 of 3

The head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) caused a stir recently when he suggested that local first-responders should have a greater role in disaster response. As we discovered during and after Hurricane Harvey…this is very true!

Drew White is the Senior Federal Policy Analyst for the Center for Tenth Amendment Action at the Texas Public Policy Foundation. Drew was also the Domestic Policy Advisor for Senator Ted Cruz for two years.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Should local first-responder agencies have a more active role in recovery efforts?

Should FEMA be the only responder in a disaster situation?

Do non-profits and charities have more flexibility than FEMA?

Should the government begin to lean on non-profits and charities for help rather than FEMA?

Tune in to the next segment with Drew White as he discusses another major issue with FEMA: money.

PART 2 OF 3 - FEMA AND NATURAL DISASTERS
Discussed by Drew White
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Does FEMA have a fleet of flat-bottomed boats they can utilize quickly to save those who are downing in flood waters? HINT: Nope! They have a fleet of personnel who can only get to action after Congress has authorized it!

How does FEMA disperse the money given them by Congress?

Does all the government bureaucracy just get in the way?

Is too much money wasted on non-emergencies?

Do our elected officials use disaster funding legislation as a means of pushing through their pet projects?

For the most part, are local responders, non-profits, and charities better, smarter, faster, and cheaper than FEMA?

JONAH AND THE BIG FISH
Discussed by Michael Vowell
with Biblical Literacy (www.Biblical-Literacy.com)


Day 1

On Sunday, December 10, 2017, Houston Rabbi Michael Vowell was the special guest speaker during Mark Lanier’s Biblical Literacy Class, offering a different look at the story of Jonah and the giant fish.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Contrary to popular belief, the story of Jonah is NOT about a giant fish (or whale or shark or whatever sea creature you imagine…).

The story of Jonah is about a rebellious prophet who hates God for loving his enemies.

Rabbi Michael Vowell compares Jonah to Sherlock Holmes. Why?

Was Jonah a real person? Or is the story satire? Rabbi Vowell uses Luke 11:29-32 as a reference, quoting Jesus.

Was Jonah the only person in Nineveh who didn’t repent?

WHAT A GIFT
Discussed by Pastor Averri LeMalle
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)


Part 1

Pastor Averri LeMalle continues this week in the Christmas Series based on John 3:16, “The Greatest Gift”, with the second sermon: “What a Gift”.

Please Note: We will conclude the sermon series the week after Christmas.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Pastor LeMalle begins the sermon reminiscing about the recent snow that blanketed areas of Houston. His daughter made a statement about the snow that really stayed with him. Listen as he explains…

Why do we give so much during the Christmas season?

Can you give without loving? Yep! But can you love without giving? Nope!

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.
