OUR STUDY of the Bible continues as we conclude the Book of Job this morning. Talk about your big finish — Yahweh Himself appears to rebuke Job and his three friends, and we get a fascinating description of two creatures usually identified by commentators as the hippopotamus and the crocodile.
However, the descriptions of Behemoth and Leviathan do not adequately fit hippos and crocs. Behemoth, with its tail like a cedar tree, sounds more like a sauropod than anything else. And Leviathan, “king over all the sons of pride”, is more likely, in our view, none other than Helel ben Shachar, “that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world”.
After Yahweh makes clear to Job that it is not the place of humans to question His ways, Job repents and is forgiven. Yahweh then commands the three friends of Job to offer sacrifices and to ask Job to pray on their behalf. The story of Job concludes with his fortunes not only restored but magnified by Yahweh, and Job lives out his days in peace and surrounded by his family.
Here is a link to E.W. Bullinger’s 1893 book The Witness of the Stars, which you can read for free online. Note: Many Christian scholars today point out that the scholarship on which the Gospel in the Stars is based was faulty and warn against searching for messages in the stars. Since the time of Babylon, the Enemy has popularized the idea of seeking information about the future through astrology, which God forbids (See Deut. 18:10).
An amazing account of faith, running as a national champion, hope and inspiration. A true story of genocide survival and a second chance to give back as a running coach in America. As told by Gilbert Tuhabonye.
Gilbert Tuhabonye, a native of Burundi Africa, a nationally ranked runner and genocide survivor. Tells how he escaped being burned to death with all his schoolmates, now a renowned running coach in America. An inspiring story every runner must hear.
Gilbert narrowly escaped an attack on his school as the Hutu’s sought revenge for the murder of the president of Burundi by the Tutsi’s. With 30% of his body burned he escaped a burning building where as many as 200 of his class mates lay brutally tortured and burned to death. Fortunately, this story ends well as Gilbert now coaches runners in Austin Texas.

An avid dog lover, Fantastic Frank discusses Beau the Dog. Beau is a 2 and 1/2 year old Golden Retriever/White German Shepard mix with no history of aggression or biting. But after Beau allegedly killed a duck that wandered on to his own property, he was seized by animal control and the city of Dyersburg, TN plans to euthanize him as a "vicious animal."
Beau should not be killed for this reason and should be able to live out his life with his owner, Danny Higgins. Danny is heartbroken at the thought that the city plans to euthanize his beloved dog on November 20th.
Danny now has to visit Beau in boarding where the city is forcing him to stay. And on top of this, they're charging him to keep Beau there.
Beau does not deserve a death sentence - he was just being a dog. Please support Danny and Beau and tell the city of Dyersburg, TN not to kill Beau!

We continue our study of the Book of Job beginning with chapter 32. Job's friends, Eliphaz, Zophar, and Bildad have run out of things to say, Job has exhausted his defense, and so today we meet a new character in this drama.
Elihu, a young man who has apparently been watching and listening to his elders as they debate the reasons for Job's trials, launches into a monologue about the nature of God and Job's error in declaring himself righteous. All this sets up the appearance of Yahweh Himself.

I am a student; a continual learner. For me, the journey of growth and evolution has no finish line.
I pay attention to the spiritual teachers that inspire me and challenge me to think about my journey and my work in a new way, such as Elizabeth Gilbert, Rob Bell, Elizabeth Lesser, Marianne Williamson, Byron Katie & Esther Hicks.
But if we want to know where to find the greatest spiritual teachers for our lives, we need look no further than our closest personal relationships.
Unlike traditional teachers who are there to impart wisdom, our closest relationships are there to expose all the parts of us that we don’t really want to own, to teach us about forgiveness and acceptance, to bring to light our beliefs about our ability to love and be loved.

Nikki explained how these girls suffer from attachment insecurity and often have been adopted. This decision was made from comments by their students that had been in many therapeutic programs and felt they "learned nothing good about themselves.' The girls are now very positive and enthusiastic about this new approach Nikki explained.
