  • Personal Integrity And Leadership Analysis

    the Beloved sermon 1 of 8). When our identity is not based on “BEing” the beloved, we will go through our entire life searching for who we are in things that hold no value. Henri Nouwen says that this leads to depression and “our life ends up nothing” (Nouwen, Being the Beloved sermon 1 of 8). Admittedly, I still struggle with this even though I believe that “I am the beloved of God” (Ephesians 5:1, NIV Thinline Bible). I recognize that I place too much value on what people think and say about me, and not enough on what God says about me. Another powerful example of integrity in action is in the life of Mother Teresa. Bill Hybels touches upon her story and the persistence she displayed throughout her life.

As a result of this week’s study I am looking at my life differently. I…

  • Jack The Mountie Character Analysis

    Of course, Jack and Bill also have more investigations to do thanks to some information that has come to light regarding Mr. Gowen. I simply adore the pairing of these two--kind of like the dynamic duo of the Old West. One has to go by the books, and the other can be a little more creative in his interpretation of the law. Together, they are invincible as they solve whatever crime or perceived crime comes their way. As Bill, Jack is handsome, rugged and certainly committed to justice at any…
