What are you going to do with the rest of your life? Bob Buford founded the Halftime Institute about twenty years ago. Today, Dean Niewolny (Nee-WALL-nee) runs it. At one time, Dean’s life was right out of the book of Ecclesiastes. He had it all, but life was virtually meaningless. Dean has now written a book to help people transition from success to significance. The book (available July 18) is “TRADE UP: How to Move from Just Making Money to Making a Difference.” Dean Niewolny joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss making your life count before God. www.tradeupbook.com

Ken Klukowski is a constitutional attorney for First Liberty Institute, fighting for our religious liberties. Is it constitutional for a circuit of appeals to open its deliberations with prayer? A press release from First Liberty notes: “A local activist sued the commissioners of Jackson County [Michigan], arguing that their tradition of beginning monthly meetings with an invocation violates the First Amendment. A federal district court judge upheld Jackson County’s practice of allowing each of its nine commissioners to have rotating opportunities to deliver a voluntary invocation. A three-judge panel of the Sixth Circuit reversed the lower court’s ruling in a 2-1 decision.” But now that is being appealed. Ken Klukowski joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the issue and why it matters. www.firstliberty.org

Dr. Graham Allison is the founding Dean of the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard. He is the author of an intriguing new book, which strives to learn lessons from history, so as to avoid an ultimate war between America and China.

Is it wrong for Christians to know that they are secure in their salvation? Does God want His children to know that they are secure in their salvation? Or, is it arrogant and presumptuous for Christians to think that they are secure in their salvation?
