CHRISTIAN OPINION How Should the Church Respond in Perilous Times?
By Mat Staver    l    Charisma News
The times in which we live are  unprecedented in the history of America. Every  generation thinks the cultural decline is worse than  in prior times. These times are clearly  unprecedented—at least in American history. But  the threats we face today are not unprecedented  in Judeo-Christian history, a point I will address  later. Let me give just two examples. For the first  time in world history, the citizens of a country are  being forced to participate in genocide.....

A Flourishing Workplace Culture Leads to Ministry Effectiveness and Kingdom Impact
By Lisa V. Cone   /   Special to The Church Guide
The Gideons International Executive Director, Craig Warner, shares his testimony of taking a once-toxic culture and moving it toward a flourishing work environment. What does a healthy workplace culture look like?  Made up of attitudes, values, and beliefs of both leadership and employees within an organization, culture shapes team unity, inspires people, and motivates employees to be their best. A welcoming and purposeful culture can attract talent and create an engaging work environment. Business owners rarely make time to focus on and nurture their company’s culture, but The Gideons International Executive Director, Craig Warner, stepped up to the task and has seen true transformation in his organization. A 116 year-old evangelical Christian nonprofit ministry, best known for distributing Bibles in hotels, schools, prisons, and hospitals, The Gideons International was built with the purpose of growing God’s Kingdom. However, as they toiled to fulfill their mission, they were suffering from a neglected and deteriorating organizational culture.
“That I may publish with the voice of thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wonderous works.”   Psalm 26:7

One of the greatest lessons I’ve learned is  that you can’t be both selfish and happy. I know  this is true through my own personal experience,  but more importantly, the Bible has some things to  say about the attitude we should have about “self.”  For example, love is not selfish. In the  Amplified Bible, 1 Corinthians 13:5 says, “…Love  (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights  or its own way, for it is not self-seeking....” In 1  Corinthians 15:31, the apostle Paul said, “…I die  daily [I face death every day and die to self]”  (AMPC), which basically means he was not self-  seeking but instead focused on doing what God  called him to do with his life. There are also scriptures that                        teach us the importance of having                             self-control. Galatians 5:23 lists self-                         control as a fruit of the Spirit, and                                     2 Timothy 1:7 says that in Christ, we                                 have a spirit “of power and of love                                          and of calm and well-balanced                                                    mind and discipline and self-                                control.”
