In the September 26 issue of LinC, we take a look at Tiger Woods, and how after years as the number one golfer in the world, he recently lost his top ranking to Vijay Singh. Youth—whether they’re trying to live up to lofty expectations or trying not to be discouraged by low expectations—are profoundly affected by winning, losing, and how they compare to others. We also discuss ways youth can be faithful in both victory and defeat. Key Scriptures are: 1 Samuel 15:10-23; 16:1-13; Matthew 2:7-18; 16:21-26; and Romans 8:31-39.
In the October 3 issue of LinC, we are reminded of the families devastated by recent hurricanes and storms in the southern United States and the Caribbean. These storms have also caused an insurance nightmare. Though human insurance plans will always have shortcomings, the coverage we get from God will see us through any disaster. And best of all, the insurance that God provides has already been paid for.
