The Wall Street Meltdown

I watched the president's address Wednesday evening, and I found it interesting that he spent 5 of his 12.5 minutes explaining the history of the problem. I thought he did well to not cast blame on any one specific individual or group of individuals.

However, he did address a specific heart issue: Greed.

Greed's a pretty strong word. It's pretty harsh to accuse someone of being greedy. But the president implied that the entire nation had gotten a bit greedy the last 10 years or so, and that greed has grown to have massive implications for our economy.

Politicians and economists in Washington are trying to arrive at a solution for the credit crisis. But what's the solution for greed?

This Sunday, Andy Stanley is going to address the greed in our hearts. This greed, left undealt with, will destroy our lives as surely as greed is destroying our economy.

Join us at the UNF Fine Arts Center at 9:00am or 10:30am for a startling examination of our own hearts. Even better, Andy will offer a solution that is simple and clear, and can be implemented right away!

I don't like the title of this blog post... It scares me!
I was driving up 85 today and was VERY low on gas. So, I got off the highway and both gas stations at the exit were totally out of gas. I drove down the street and yet another station was out of gas. I just started making my way towards my house and finally, 1 mile from my home, was a QT that had gas. I waited in line for 25 minutes just to fill up. People were everywhere, yelling at each other, getting into fights (i'm not kidding) all just to try to get some gas! One guy backed his Mustang in between two cars to cut the line and get gas first.
It's not just Wall Street... When was the last time you went to the mall?
