    Life is full of choices and decisions to make. Yet how many of these decisions and choices require prayer or just common sense?

Let us come together and know when to pray and when to use common sense.

    If we take a close examination at our youth and the troubles they find themselves in on the outside...disturbances in the schools, neighborhoods, and society...most likely we can trace the root cause of it in the homes they dwell in.

It is time to truly and courageously deal with this harsh reality that takes place.

    Ferguson: Now What?

    in Christianity

    In a recent article by the Christian Science Monitor, one young man named Anthony Pruitt walked up to the Missouri State Highway Patrol in the midst of the protests saying.. “We hurt, we broken, and we ain’t all criminals,” Mr. Pruit said. He then pulled down his bandanna to show his face, which was by then streaked with tears. “How can y’all fix this?” One difficult question you might ask, however it is one that needs to be addressed. Of course the portests and riots were a direct result of and unarmed 18 year old young black man named Michael Brown being shot several times by a white officer named Darren Wilson. Every since then it has created racial tensions, the resurface of questionable tactics by law enforcement, and including the constant search for answers as to why these type of incidents continue to plague our communities. What as a community can we truly do to combat these travesties? What can we teach our young men about how to avoid these situations? Join another edition of Open Treasures as we attempt to tackle the question...What do we do next?
