He said to His disciples, “Why are you so afraid?” Do you still have no faith?
To look at this dog’s expression is to think he has little confidence in the one who is driving. I wonder, do we look the same way as we are asked to trust God in His guidance of our lives?
~ Pastor Bob
Have a Little Faith: A True Story
“Clear some space on your bookshelf for Mitch Albom’s, Have a Little Faith, the story of a faith journey that could become a classic. Those who were born into faith, have lost faith, or are still searching will all be engaged and challenged by this powerful story of “finding faith” in relationships with others and with something greater than ourselves. Never satisfied with easy answers or soft platitudes, Mitch explores some of life’s greatest mysteries and unanswered questions with great honesty, depth and self reflection.” (Jim Wallis, CEO and Founder of Sojourners and author of The Great Awakening)

Fearless: Imagine Your Life Without Fear
by Max Lucado
Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.They’re talking layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up a hundred-year lease on the building next door and set up shop. Oversized and rude, fear herds us into a prison of unlocked doors. Wouldn’t it be great to walk out?
To have courage to move forward and pursue what God calls us to do each of us needs a good dose of Integrity—more than simple honesty, it’s the key to success. A person with integrity has the ability to pull everything together, to make it all happen no matter how challenging the circumstances. Drawing on experiences from his work, Dr. Henry Cloud, a clinical psychologist, leadership coach, corporate consultant and nationally syndicated radio host, shows how our character can keep us from achieving all we want to (or could) be.
by Henry Cloud
In Integrity, Dr. Cloud explores the six qualities of character that define integrity, and how people with integrity: Are able to connect with others and build trust, are oriented toward reality, finish well, embrace the negative, are oriented toward increase, have an understanding of the transcendent.
Integrity is not something that you either have or don’t, but instead is an exciting growth path that all of us can engage in and enjoy.
