Life Apps for the week of 12/7/14 to 12/13/14

A way to live:

For whom or what will you open the door?  Is there someone you can help into your circle of friends or into some cause you believe in?  Do consider doing it.  Is there some cause you can help along by joining?  This could be the time to do it.
[Suggested by Mark 1:1-8]

Community – “Militarized Policing” by Tobias Winright, The Christian Century, 9/17/14; are police best seen as “crime fighters” or as “social peacekeepers?” Biblical reference: “. . . deliver us from evil . . .” (Matthew 6:13b).
Spiritual Health – “Why Ayn Rand is Still Relevant (and Dangerous)” by Darryl Cunningham in New Statesman; her distrust of government and contempt for the needy have influenced many.  Biblical reference: “for I was hungry and you gave me no food, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, I was a stranger and you did not welcome me, naked and you did not give me clothing, sick and in prison and you did not visit me” (Matthew 25:42-43).
