Female ministers still not treated fairly

September 22, 2008

A religious magazine featuring female ministers is hidden due to church teachings. WSB reports.

HERE is the video that goes with this story.

Romans 16:1-3 mentions three different female deacons in the church. If women are good enough to serve in the church, then women are good enough to minister to the church.

How To Talk To Your Doctor About God

September 14, 2008

I ran across an article on CNN.com about how to talk to your doctor about God.  I found it to be insightful, uplifting, and interesting.  Please check out the full article HERE.

As a Christian, I view every aspect of life through my God, Jesus Christ, and Holy Bible filters, so it makes perfect sense that one should discuss God with their doctor.  I believe that it helps to have a doctor that believes in the same God that you do.  It has been known for years that prayer helps people to heal and recover faster than those who don’t pray or receive prayer.   I know for a fact that God has healed me and several loved ones without a reasonable explanation, but for those of us who believe we already know who did the healing.

I found it interesting…I hope you do too.

Airline seeks bald men as walking billboards

September 10, 2008

Here’s a new way to market your brand.  Paint your logo on bald heads.  That’s what Air New Zealand is looking to do.  They want to put a temporary tattoo on the heads of bald men to generate awareness for their airline.  I think this story by itself is doing that.  Thumbs up to the marketing department for a zany idea.  You can check out the full story HERE.

The Marketing Of Michael Phelps Is A Long Term Plan

September 8, 2008

Michael Phelps has become a worldwide phenomen in what seems to be a few short weeks, but in reality the marketing plan for him has been in place for years.  I saw a very good article about the marketing of Michael Phelps in the the Daily Herald.  You can read it for yourself by CLICKING HERE.

I found it interesting that even though it looks like everything went according to plan his marketing team is concerned about overexposure for him now.  I also like the fact that he post to his own Facebook page, where he has over 1.5 million “Phans”.  What I really want to know is, is he a Christian?  I’ve seen a couple of different answers online to that question, but no official stance.  Hey Michael Phelps, if you want to promote your Christianity, I have a way for you to do it and let God get the glory for blessings you have received and for the blessings yet to come.
