When you're in charge . . .

ENCOUNTER got to chat with Christian singer Ayiesha Woods. Ayiesha talked about times when she is in authority.

Have you ever had to be in charge of a situation? How do you handle the pressure and expectations and responsibility?

Fighting Authority

This week in ENCOUNTER we're looking at authority. The skit "Pass Interference" is a humorous look at how bad things could get if no one was in charge. Although it's meant to make us laugh, there is truth in the message.

No matter who we are, we have a love/hate relationship with authority. We like authority when it benefits us. But at times when we feel it restricts our freedom, we hate it.

How do you deal with those feelings? What struggles do you have with authority? Please leave a comment and discuss!

Honor someone in the military

Tuesday, November 11 is Veteran's Day. In ENCOUNTER this week we're reminded: "Veterans Day honors all those, living and dead, who served with the U.S. armed forces. . . . Veterans Day honors all that have served in times of peace as well as in war."

Do you know someone who has served (or is serving) in the military? Leave a comment and honor the person.
