A two-year research project from the Barna Group asked pastors across the country how they measure the success of their churches? Most pastors look to five factors: “attendance, giving, number of programs, number of staff and square footage.”  About their beliefs regarding the relevancy of Scripture to societal, moral and political issues vs the content of their sermons in light of their beliefs…
-while 90% of US pastors believe the Bible has much to say about today’s pressing political and societal issues, less than 10% are talking about those issues from the pulpit.
Bottom line from Barna: “Many pastors are afraid to get involved in political issues because of the controversy it might create. Controversy keeps people from being in the seats, controversy keeps people from giving money and from attending programs.” Source: “Today’s Issues” American Family Radio

Are you sabotaging your own workout?  If you’ve been working out for eight plus weeks and haven’t started to reap the benefits yet, there’s a good chance that one or more of these silent setbacks has found its way into your fitness regimen. Common culprits hurting your workout…
Not eating enough – If you want to build muscle, you need to take in more fuel.
Also, to lose weight, you need the right kind of fuel…
*Not sleeping enough – Certain hormones, which help us build muscle and burn
fat, are active when we sleep and not active when we are awake.
Bottom Line: Be aware of bad habits and eliminate those bad habits. http://www.cnn.com/2014/08/18/health/dailyburn-sabotage-workout/index.html?hpt=he_c1

The issue of undocumented children crossing the border has been highlighted recently. From October 2013 to June 2014, more than 57,000 unaccompanied children, mostly from Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, have been caught illegally crossing the US – Mexico border.
By law, unaccompanied (undocumented) children from countries that don’t border the US must be handed over to the Department of Health and Human Services within 72 hours of being detained. The government is responsible for caring for the children until they are united with a relative or sponsor in the U.S. while waiting for immigration court hearings to proceed. http://goo.gl/EidDdx
Commissioners in Surry County are frustrated over illegal immigration, so they are sending a clear message to lawmakers in Washington DC and officials in Central America – “Enforce human trafficking laws or face a boycott of your products in North Carolina.” Commissioners plan to vote on the resolution at their next meeting… http://myfox8.com/2014/08/18/boycott-threat-over-illegal-immigration-proposed-in-surry-co/

Home schooling continues to grow in North Carolina.
