Ringing in the new year, plus Emerson Eggerichs on respecting men, and a listener has trouble respecting her pastor.
Out with the Old, In with the New
Some of us changed jobs, some got engaged. Our panel this week reflects on 2010 and shares our hopes for 2011, including the steps we need to take to make it a year of challenge and productivity. As you know, I love talking about this stuff. I'm almost done decluttering my house, am looking forward to broadening my circle of friends and taking a class or two, and may even sign up for a 10K. What are you looking forward to in 2011?
The Language of Respect
Many of us have heard of Emerson Eggerichs, author of the wildly popular book, Love and Respect. Well, I nabbed him for an interview and learned that the language of respect (toward men) and love (toward women) applies to more than married couples. It's a subtle but effective way to communicate well and learn oodles about the opposite sex. Will it get you a date? I'm not sure. But it's a new year, so I say go ahead and try it.
Pastors Off the Pedastal
She says her pastor has said and done things that make her disrespect him. But not only does she attend the church, she works there. How can she serve with joy and integrity if her pastor isn't someone she looks up to? Should she talk to him about it? Counselor Glenn Lutjens offers some advice.
