Naive No More

We all need to become more educated concerning what is going on in our communities. As Forums are provided within the community, take advantage of the knowledge and education provided. And then pass it on to others in need. I think "naive no more" will be my motto as I strive to "get wisdom."

Trading Our Sorrows and Shame

How do we deal with death, betrayal, injustice, suffering, and other causes of sorrow? With an addiction, we usually turn to our drug of choice. Whether it’s something we drink, eat, smoke, or a behavior we like to get lost in (like Internet gaming, gambling, or pornography), we use it as the place we take our pain. When we trade our unhealthy patterns of dealing with sorrow by turning to Jesus instead, we receive joy.
