    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. Upon receiving a direct call from God, she relentlessly sought permission by her authority to fulfill this call, even at the expense of devastating rumors (Hybels 264). In one of her letters she writes, “Please forgive me for being so tiresome with my continual appeal, but I have to act this way. Souls of the poor are being lost for want of care and love” (266). It is evident that she cared more about those in need than her own crushed ego. Her example causes me to evaluate my own integrity and persistence. Would I care enough about others to undergo such ridicule? If I truly grasp my identity in Christ, then I would not care about my reputation with others and the answer would be an emphatic, yes! As a result of this week’s study I am looking at my life differently. I…

    Willow Creek Architecture

    I have chosen to write about the Willow Creek Community Church in South Barrington, Illinois. The place in question is a large, modern building. Its exterior has a looming presence, as though it were a stadium or a shopping mall rather than a church. The abundance of entrances and sections make the church a difficult place to navigate. Each entrance has its own parking lot, leading to a separate wing of the structure. Surrounding the building is a beautiful landscape, with lawns, pathways, and…

    While their opinions are to be respected, to simply state it, there is a better option that exists. Some believe that this bill implies that the “First Amendment should be treated ‘not as a right but as a privilege’” (Sigmon 1). What is false about this belief is that all legislation can be deemed unconstitutional if it is. The lawmakers of America want to protect citizens while respecting the rights granted to them in the Constitution. It is part of their job to use the Constitution as a…

Usually, a member of the legislative body will propose a bill to…

Another provision of the bill would change the font…

The president also has an important role in creating legislation at the beginning of the process and…

    recalling a certain portion of my speech at the time. To fix this error in my speech, I would improvise by bringing up my personal ideologies that were founded on libertarianism, but not all the students would approve with the libertarian policies. Furthermore, I will now move on to my persuasive and special speech, which were my decent speeches for this class. Throughout my persuasive speech, I would discuss about repealing the $15 Minimum Wage Bill from California’s legislator, considering…

    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…

    “California equal pay bill may be toughest in nation” (Masunaga 2015). This article was written by Samantha Masunaga and published in the Los Angeles Times. The Los Angeles Times has been in circulation for more than 130 years and has won over 40 Pulitzer prizes. The paper has been accused of having a liberal bias, but I do not feel that it has any bearing on this particular story. Samantha Masunaga attended UC Berkley Graduate School of Journalism. Prior to joining the staff at the Los Angeles…
