Principles CINews

PRINCIPLE - the source or origin of anything; a general truth, a truth so broad and sweeping that many other truths can be considered offshoots of it

Guiding Principles
Foundational Principles

Memorial Day, 30 May 2005 - more than just a day off. As we reflect on the lives, the sacrifices, and the suffering of our military and law enforcement, let us also reflect on the principles for which they gave up so much. We have a responsibility as citizens of this great nation to fight for foundational principles and not let them slip quietly into the night. We owe a debt to fallen patriots who believed enough in these principles to die for them. Please visit the Focus on the Family Memorial Day Topic.

PRAYER - I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers,
intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and
for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life
in all godliness and honesty. For this is good and acceptable in the sight
of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto
the knowledge of the truth. I Tim 2:1-4

ENCOUNTER - And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, Occupy till I come. Luk 19:13
