The American Creed

Rev. Dr. Marlin Lavanhar 

It's been said that the United States of America is a nation that was founded on a secular creed. Rooted in the Declaration of Independence and echoed throughout our history are certain commonly held truths. As we continue our July theme of Independence and our series on This American Faith, I will share a message regarding the American creed.

Managing The Dis-ease of Co-dependency...
Religion or Relationship!

Bishop Carlton Pearson

Part of the so called "gift" and sometimes guilt of independence is a certain unavoidable trait of co-dependency, that should not go unnoticed or without mention. Among the core characteristics of codependency, a common trait is an incessant, if not excessive, reliance on other people for approval and a sense of self-worth and identity. We may not be able to master the issues of innate co-dependency, but we can learn to manage it, so as not to be consumed and controlled by it. Interdependency seems to be the better and perhaps naturally creative design.
