He Gives Grace to the Humble

first_imgFaith Leader Q&A Interview He Gives Grace to the Humble By PASTOR CHUCK RYOR, PRISM CHURCH Published on Friday, March 14, 2014 | 3:04 pm 10 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Top of the News Pastor Chuck Ryor, Prism Church“In our society, strength (or, at least imagined strength) is applauded; and weakness is thought of as a defect. God doesn’t allow us to stay with the idea that we are strong. Oh, we may have that idea, but the Lord is going to disabuse us one way or another.” – J.I. Packer, “Weakness is the Way”Friday’s Prayer: Ask God for gospel grace to honestly tell your story to others.The older I get, the less impressed I am with bravado in Christian leaders. It contradicts that Scriptures at so many levels it is difficult for me to understand why I ever thought it was a characteristic Christians should have. Whether it is the T.V. preacher with swagger or the tough-talking theological type, the model of strong Christian that I was exposed to as a young, enthusiastic Christian was just such a figure.Jesus has a different plan for us. It’s called humility. It’s called brokenness before Him and others.“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another.” – Ephesians 4:2I can’t wait to read the great J.I. Packer’s latest book, “Weakness is the Way.” If you will watch the YouTube trailer for it, you, too, will find yourself saying, “I want to hear what this guy has to say.” Packer references Paul’s struggle with pride found in 2 Corinthians 12:1-10. Paul says with clarity that to keep him from becoming conceited, God allowed a struggle to continue in Paul’s life – one that would require Him to daily see God’s grace to cope. God’s power could and would only be demonstrated and appropriated in Paul’s life when he was was weak. Then God could be strong.The fourth component of Prism’s “Strategy” to reach others is to yield…to obey God.P.R.A.Y. – Position ourselves to befriend others, Request God’s help opening doors, Avail ourselves to our friends, and Yield to God’s plan to speak for Him.Yielding to God’s plan for many of us is simply a willingness to allow others to see us as weak. It is precisely at the moment when we humble ourselves that Jesus gets to show up and be the hero.“God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” – James 4:6Have a great weekend!Chuck RyorPrism Church, P.O.

Alleged gunman in FedEx shooting browsed white supremacist websites, police say

first_imgIndianapolis Metro Police Department(INDIANAPOLIS) — The alleged gunman who killed eight people at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis last week apparently browsed white supremacist websites a little over a year before the deadly shooting, police said.On March 3, 2020, Brandon Hole’s mother went to the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department seeking help after her son had purchased a shotgun with no bullets, according to new details in an incident report released Monday. The mother told police that her son became angry, struck her in the arm with a closed fist and told her to “shut up” when she had asked what he was going to do with the gun. The mother said her son told her that he was going to point the unloaded gun at police officers so they would shoot him, saying, “This is not the life I want to live, I’ll end it my way,” according to the report.After speaking with the mother, police officers went to the family’s home and placed Hole in handcuffs. Hole, who was 18 at the time, “became immediately anxious” and told the officers, “Please just turn the power strip off on my computer … I don’t want anyone to see what’s on it,” according to the report. One of the officers went upstairs to seize the shotgun and “observed what through his training and experience indicated was white supremist (sic) websites” on Hole’s computer, the report said.While speaking with officers, Hole “downplayed any suicidal thoughts or plans” but said he felt “sad and depressed and that he would benefit from counselling,” according to the report. The officers placed Hole on an immediate detention mental health temporary hold and transported him to a local hospital for further assessment. Officers also notified the criminal intelligence unit about what was observed on Hole’s computer and took the shotgun to the police department’s property room with “seized by dangerous person” written on the inventory sheet, the report said.Nevertheless, police said Hole was able to legally purchase two assault rifles in July and September 2020, which were recovered at the scene of the attack at the FedEx facility on April 15, 2021. Hole, 19, was found dead inside the building from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, police said.FedEx said Hole was an employee at the facility from August to October 2020. His employment was terminated when he failed to return to work.Police said the shooting lasted less than four minutes and was over by the time they arrived on scene. Officers found eight people — four in the parking lot and four inside the facility — who were later pronounced dead.Four surviving victims who suffered injuries consistent with gunshot wounds were transported to various local hospitals. A fifth person with injuries consistent with gunshot wounds sought medical attention in another country. Two others who suffered minor injuries were treated by medics at the scene and were released, police said.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Assessment and investment cure high staff losses

first_img Comments are closed. Welcome Break has reduced its staff turnover rate and improved its serviceto customers after introducing a performance management system. The firm’s HR director Martin Hinchliffe said the company decided to bringin a method of assessing all employees’ performances in May 2000 alongside a£120m investment in new and upgraded facilities. “Previously there was no review at all at any level from people servingour customers to board directors. “We felt that performance management was long overdue,” saidHinchliffe. Welcome Break worked with Leeds-based consultancy CDA at the start of 2000to develop a performance assessment process that would be suitable for allmembers of staff. A steering group was put together, including a waitress, an assistantmanager, a general manager and a director, to ensure that the new proposalswere workable and relevant. The scheme was piloted from May to November 2000 using 100 employees atthree different sites and then rolled out across the rest of the company inJanuary this year. Welcome Break has trained nearly 500 managers to carry out the performancemanagement assessments of all 5,000 staff every six months. Hinchliffe said the scheme helps involve staff with business aims, identifypeople’s strengths and weaknesses and set them objectives. As a result of the performance management programme, staff turnover hasreduced from 70 per cent to just over 50 per cent in the past 18 months, andmystery guest customer service assessments have shown very positive results. Next year, performance objectives will be linked to pay for some managers. Assessment and investment cure high staff lossesOn 13 Nov 2001 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos.
