NTRODUCTION What if there was a question that would clarify your best option for ninety percent of the decisions you make in life—a question that answers just about everything? It would have the potential to foolproof your relationships, marriage, finances, calendar, pace, and health. It would reduce the complexity of your life. It would save you time, money and tears. You would carry around less regret. And best of all, you wouldn’t have to apologize nearly as much. DISCUSSION QUESTIONS 1. Did you make any New Year’s resolutions? If so, what are you going to do to make sure you follow through on them? 2. What are some ways you’ve seen people allow their emotions and desires lead their decisionmaking? 3. Read Ephesians 5:15–17. What are some of the cultural currents that make it difficult for people today to make wise choices? 4. How might your life be different if you made decisions in light of your past experience and current circumstances? 5. During the message, Andy said, “Personal vision is often a catalyst for wise decisions.” Think about your future hopes and dreams. What are some opportunities you’re in danger of missing if you make unwise choices? 6. What is one area of your life about which you need to ask, “What’s the wise thing for me to do?” How can this group support you in asking that question? MOVING FORWARD Of every invitation, opportunity, relationship, or decision, ask “What’s the wise thing to do?” If you were going to do the wise thing, what would it be? By asking that question, even if you don’t follow through, you will discover something about you. You owe it to yourself to know the answer to that question. CHANGING YOUR MIND Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Ephesians 5:15–16

Sam and Dave, two close buddies, in different branches of the US military, will sit with us to discuss War, Military Deployment, and Life Afterwards. They are also here to answer your questions and respond to your comments.
Panel: A panel discussion with 2 veterans, Sam and Dave, about the War, Military Deployment, and the residual effects on families during and after war time.
If there is any advice you can share with our audience who may be thinking about joining the military, or even currently serving in the armed forces what advise as Veterans can you share?
According to the US National Library of Medicine, National Institute of Health, “Among the consequences of war, the impact on the mental health of the civilian population is one of the most significant. Studies of the general population show a definite increase in the incidence and prevalence of mental disorders. Women are more affected than men. Other vulnerable groups are children, the elderly and the disabled. Prevalence rates are associated with the degree of trauma, and the availability of physical and emotional support. The use of cultural and religious coping strategies is frequent in developing countries.”
Author Robert Doubek wrote Creating the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, detailing the contention and debate behind the creation of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Since its dedication in 1982, the memorial has been one of the most visited monuments, honoring the fallen as a cultural icon. However, there was also a great deal of controversy at the time of its inception, with some dismissing it as "a nihilistic slab of stone." The designer, Maya Lin, was also criticized for her ethnicity, spurring a battle in Congress.

Continuing on the subject of understanding the relationships between the mind, brain and body, Mitchell’s guest this evening is neuropsychologist, consultant, teacher and author Mario Martinez. Dr. Martinez’ book The Mind Body Code has met with international acclaim. Sounds True has produced The Mind-Body Code as a CD set as well.
Dr. Mario E. Martinez is a clinical neuropsychologist. In 1998 he developed his theory of Biocognitive Science based on research that demonstrates how thoughts and their biological expression coemerge within a cultural history. Academic science continues to divide mind and body, as well as ignore the influence cultural contexts have on the process of health, illness and aging. For example, cultures that support growing older as a positive development associated with increased wisdom and abilities have higher numbers of centenarians living healthier lives, than cultures that view aging as a process of inevitable deterioration.
