The Walk at Work: Committed to Your Calling and Your Career by   Andria Hall “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should    walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10

 Anyone who has experienced office politics knows deep down inside there’s a better way to work. Each of us wants to believe that the quality and nature of our work should be defined by more than the paycheck we get at the end of the week. The Walk  at Work is Work is a gentle and encouraging guide to readers who wonder, how can I be an effective Christian in corporate America? The America? The advice offered in The Walk at Work — Work — part manual for personal spiritual growth, part daily devotional, part Bible study and all of it inspirational reading, — will apply specifically to office politics, career advancement, and soul survival. The author examines not only the relationships we have with others at work, but also the everyday challenges many of us have just surviving and thriving in our careers. Her book will become a “how to spiritually succeed at work” must-read.

This unusual guidebook, a hybrid of daily inspirational readings and a seven-step plan for personal spiritual growth — is designed to equip men and women who want to honor God in the workplace. It is an especially supportive resource for Christians, who have a desire to submit to God’s word and move from Sunday Christians to Monday to  Monday through Sunday believers.

God is able. able. He is ready and waiting for us to invite Him into into every aspect of our work life, and the thing thing He is waiting for most is for us to agree with what’s most important to Him. Using the acronym S.U.C.C.E.S.S. as a teaching tool, the reader can find success by lining up his/her priorities with God’s. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, we are guided toward everything we need to succeed. God will fight our battles at work, because He has set it up so that through prayer, His Son Jesus Christ will intervene for every single believer. It’s His intervention and guidance that will make a difference in our lives so we can find favor, promotion, peace, and inner prosperity. prosperity. It’s our faith and obedience obedience that opens the door for God to move. Our office relationships will be edified and effective. When we put our heavenly Father first, when we invite others to see God in us, even on the job, God divinely places us in positions of influence where the living God can use our submission and commitment to serve Him.

Power in Prayer By Stacy Hawkins Adams (Originally published at www.Faithchicks.com on January 25, Probably like many of you, I've felt helpless over the past 48 hours as I have viewed the horrific images of suffering, shock and death coming out of Haiti. My kids and I were taking fresh-baked cookies out of the oven Thursday evening when Diane Sawyer's ABC News report filled our TV screen. We turned off the tube, joined hands, and said a prayer for those affected af fected by the history-making earthquake.

Indeed, my natural response has been to pray each time the tragedy crosses my mind; and yet, from the safety  of my warm and comfortable home, stocked with food and water, it doesn't seem like quite enough. After deciding which relief organizations to support financially so that the thousands of suffering Haitians can promptly receive aid, I still want to do more. Especially after learning that the college friend of one of my young adult church members died in the quake, and a young member of my daughter's Girl Scout troop has relatives in Haiti. However, I know that planes filled with eager supporters have been turned away for lack of runway  space. I know that since I'm not a doctor, daily journalist, or trained disaster relief volunteer, my ability to pro vide tangible support is limited.  Acknowledging those limitations reminded me that what is within my reach to offer the Haitians is exactly   what is needed - prayer and more prayer. God is sending foot soldiers - the doctors, the medics, the military  personnel - who have the right experience. experience. A pastor friend, who is also a professional psychologist, psychologist, will spend a  week in Haiti providing mental health support to Haitian preachers who are caring for people dealing with loss, grief and a life that will never be the same. They need my prayers - and yours - to give them wisdom, strength and energy to help however needed. Through our donations, we're providing the food, water and medical support that everyone is praying for. Hopefully those who are acquainted with Haitian Americans or immigrants are also offering emotional support or other requested assistance. God is even using his Haitian servants who are in the midst of the rubble. Diane

WHAT SHOULD I DO TO BE SAVED?  by Antonio L. Crawford  The announcement announcement spread around fast. J. M. Smith is coming. This famous evangelist is known for having the gift of prophetic healing and teaching. “He has preached in several cities. Now, he is visiting our town!” said Minister Jones. When the day finally arrived, people came from miles away to hear the famous fa mous evangelist preach the gospel. That night, a tall, handsome man walked on the stage. He approached the clear Plexiglas podium. He laid down his large black Bible with a thump. The noise echoed through the audience.

“How many of you -- want to know what it feels like to be born again?” He continued in a deep baritone voice. “There are four basic principles concerning spiritual rebirth and salvation that you need to know:(1) John 3:27 says a man can receive only what is given him from heaven. (2) Matthew 16:17 says, the true identity of Christ is revealed by God. (3) No one can go to the Father except he come co me through the Son, John 14:6. and (4) Those who are

Later during the night hours, Nicodemus approached Jesus and said, “Rabbi (teacher), we know you are a teacher who has come from God. No one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him.”

Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again; he cannot comprehend or fully understand the principles of God.” Why is it impossible for a sinner to comprehend God’s principles? Because the natural mind (or sinful mind) is not open to the laws of God; nor will it submit to God’s law.

You must be born again!

She continued telling the story, “Being born again is synonymous with being saved. It is impossible for you to understand God’s principles or enter into His kingdom

(AMA) was founded by a group of New England Congregationalists in 1839-1840 after they successfully advocated for the freedom of the slaves held captive aboard the Amistad. This group of Congregationalists met in 1866 during a prayer meeting to discuss the training of religious leaders to meet the spiritual needs of newly freed slaves. While the initial plan was to teach religion, the scope was broadened to include education and liberal arts. Thus was the founding of  Howard University in 1867. The founding of Howard University School of Divinity followed in 1870. From its very beginnig, women played an integral part in the School’s history. The first female graduate was Bell J.

Accredited in 1940, HUSD is one of the oldest fully-accredited theolgical schools; and the oldest historically Black school; affiliated with the Association of Theological Schools in the United States and
