Questions/Issues Discussed:

Has this summer’s drought affected farming and ranching in Texas? Sid explains that there is definitely a shortage in some goods, but is also optimistic about the future.

The drought has dramatically affected cattle production and many ranchers are selling their herds. Will this result in lower meat prices?

Does the heat affect chicken and egg production?

Will the fall harvest for Texas pecans and fruit bearing trees be affected by the drought?

Have the melon crops in the Valley been hit hard by the drought? Sid shares some good news about the Valley…

Should Chinese corporations and/or individuals be allowed to buy farm land in Texas, especially close to military bases? Sid explains why he believes: “This is one of the stupidest things we as a country, as a state, allow to happen.”

Discussed by Robyn Chambers
with Be A Voice (www.BeAVoice.net)

Pregnancy clinics and resource centers are critical sources of care for women facing an unplanned pregnancy. These centers and clinics often provide counseling, parenting classes, diapers, clothing, and formula that can truly make an impact in a woman’s life.

Robyn Chambers is the Executive Director of Advocacy for Children with Focus on the Family. Today she urges listeners to find a local crisis pregnancy center and either contribute financially or volunteer. There are thousands of women and babies who need our help.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Praise God – many abortion providers closed their doors after the recent Supreme Court decision. What about those that have remained open? Robyn reveals that they are becoming more aggressive, pushing abortion harder than before.

Why don’t many women turn to a local church immediately for help when they discover they’re pregnant? Robyn shares her own story and discusses why many churches don’t offer resources to the community.

How can we help local pregnancy centers support expectant mothers and their unborn babies? Robyn discusses the many ways we can help with both pre-natal and post-natal care.

Discussed by Dr. Derek Cohen
with Texas Public Policy Foundation (www.TexasPolicy.com)

In many Texas schools, there is no armed presence protecting our children. However, under the Texas school marshal and school guardian programs, there can be.

Dr. Derek Cohen believes there should definitely be more protection and explains how and why Texas can accomplish this. Dr. Cohen is the Vice President at Right on Crime, a division of the Texas Public Policy Foundation.

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Do our children deserve better protection while attending public school in Texas?

Can a determined shooter inflict tremendous harm in eight minutes or less within a school setting?

Is training and arming school personnel, including teachers, part of the solution? Dr. Cohen reveals details of a survey that the American Federation of Teachers conducted of their members.

What is the difference between a School Resource Officer, a School Guardian, and a School Marshal? How much would it cost each public school to employ them?

Should the Texas Legislature fully fund the Texas school marshal and guardian programs?

Discussed by Pastor Jarrett Stephens
with Champion Forest Baptist Church (www.ChampionForest.org)

Day 2

Is prayer a priority to you? Where do you pray? Why do you pray?

Pastor Jarrett Stephens subs in for Mark Lanier this week while he is on vacation, continuing the Snapshots of Jesus series. Pastor Jarrett will be teaching from Luke 9, specifically the Transfiguration in verses 28-36.

To view Pastor Jarrett’s video for this lesson, click here.

If you have a prayer request, need Scripture encouragement, or would like a copy of Mark’s lessons each week, email wantmore@biblical-literacy.org

Questions/Issues Discussed:

Who did people think Jesus was? Was he physically different than other men? What did his own family say about Jesus? (Luke 9:18-20; Isaiah 53:2b; Mark 3:21)

Did Jesus have emotions just like we do? Did he bleed just like we do? (John 1:14; Philippians 2:6-7)

Why did Jesus willingly lay aside his deity when he came to earth to live as a man?

Why did the Transfiguration take place after a time of prayer? Why did Luke write so often about Jesus’ prayer life? Where did Jesus often pray? (Luke 3; Luke 4; Luke 6; Luke 9:18) Pastor Jarrett says: “Prayer was as natural to Jesus as breathing.”

Questions/Issues Discussed:

What is God’s greatest motivation for His creation? (Psalm 30) One of Pastor John’s friends likes to say: “God has a crush on all of us that He never gets over.”

Can we ever stray so far away from God that He won’t want us back? Pastor John shares a story from Max Lucado about a girl longed for the city lights…

How does John 3:16 read in different translations of the Bible? These are beautiful!

What does it mean to believe in something, especially God? Pastor John admits that at one time he was a huge Dallas Cowboys fan. Why he hasn’t worn a Cowboys jersey, though, in 18 years?
