    John 5:19-30  "I can only do what I see my father doing."
    Where are the absent fathers in this day and age?  Young men as well as women need their natural fathers as a role model.  I know that some of these young people father may have died but where are the men that will take the place of the absentee father,

    It's All for the Children, with Kevin Annett

    in News

    It's All For the Children


    Children are the inheritance of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward. Please consider the enormous responsibility involved in raising children in righteousness. There is no greater task required of man than to lead children in the right path and provide everything necessary for their growth and protection. God requires parents to raise their children in the fear of God and to protect them from all harm. But what are people to do when the culture and society is making room for things that debase and demoralize people? The present generations are witnessing terrible crimes and abuses of children and this is the rotting of the whole of society.


    There will be no call-ins until the last 15 minutes of the show. Visit itccs.org

    ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS = THE ORIGINS OF JUDAISM; CHRISTIANITY AND ISLAM

    in Religion

    THE FOUNDATION OF MAJOR RELIGIONS


    It has been suggested that the phrase, "Abrahamic religion", may simply mean that all these religions come from one spiritual source. Christians refer to Abraham as a "father in faith".[Rom. 4] There is an Islamic religious term, Millat Ibrahim (faith of Ibrahim), indicating that Islam sees itself as having practices tied to the traditions of Abraham. Jewish tradition claims descendance from Abraham, and adherents follow his practices and ideals as the first of the three spiritual "fathers" or BIBLICAL PATRIARCHS: Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.


    All the major Abrahamic religions claim a direct lineage to ABRAHAM. 


    Abrahamic religions (also SEMITIC religions) are monotheistic religions of West Asian origin, emphasizing and tracing their common origin to Abraham or recognizing a spiritual tradition identified with him. They comprise one of the major divisions in religion. 


    As of the early 21st century, it was estimated that 54% of the world's population (3.8 billion people) considered themselves adherents of the Abrahamic religions, about 30% of other religions, and 16% of no organized religion.


    The largest Abrahamic religions in chronological order of founding are Judaism (1st millennium BCE), Christianity(1st century CE), and Islam(7th century CE).

    CAREGIVERS - when does giving to others cross the line into TOO MUCH?

    in Motivation

    We have several guests who have served as personal caregivers to family members and have learned valuable tips for others anticipating this position.


    Lorraine McCall, has been a primary caregiver to her dad for nearly 5 years. What has she learned and what can she share with us to offer assistance? Has it been easy, fulfilling, difficult, worth it?? What lessons has she learned?


    Marlo Oliver-Glass, a caregiver to her husband who was diagnosed as a terminally ill patient. What was that experience like? What lessons did she learn along the path to his full recovery? Was it difficult?


    Joyce Mottley, who has developed a plan to offer care to the caregivers, has been a healing balm to many as they go through their illnesses. A survivor herself, how important is it to take of one's self first?


    These ladies offer advice, suggestions and perhaps most important they offer care in various forms. A new energy facility, a community initiative and a complete program for the caregiver.

    Talk Back Tuesdays: How to love a man through his loss?

    in Self Help

    Welcome to the month of June, which hosts Father’s Day Celebration.  3 Counselors and a Couch dedicate the entire month to celebrating fathers and men.  If men are from Mars and women are from Venus, how then do we help one another through difficult times like grief and loss? During the month of May we identified the cause and effects of grieving women and mothers.  Considering women are encouraged to continue to move on to other responsibilities regardless of the loss experienced, men are not even welcomed to acknowledge grief of any kind.  When men loose their job, home, family, freedom, respect, and a child by death, what do they do?  Many experts on the subject easily identify men handle their emotions different from women, yet their methods are usually labeled as wrong, dysfunctional, unhealthy or non existent.  If women understand that men grief differently then how can women judge their process as right or wrong?  If men are 4 times more likely to commit suicide then women dealing with depression, according to the Bloomberg view, what can we do to better support men through their loss?


     


    Come get on the couch with 3 Counselors and a Couch.  Bring a friend to discuss how can we love a man through loss on Talk Back Tuesdays with the counselors.
