There is a saying that goes, “There are three things you don’t talk about: politics, religion, and money.”

The reason for this general rule is probably because discussions about these issues tend to become emotional and contentious even (ironically) amongst Christians.

Yet, here’s the challenge: when people don’t know how to talk about issues that are closely tied to their worldview and identity, it’s to their own detriment; it should come as no surprise that the general public is illiterate about money management, biblical faith, and bi-partisan coalition building.

While we at Miami Temple can’t fix every issue, we believe that education and emulation of practical Christianity is crucial.

This is especially true in 2020, when the United States finds itself going through a Presidential Election cycle while in the middle of a pandemic—for only the second time in its 244-year history.

What does being a Christian in a polarized world entail? How can I build bridges of understanding across ideological divides? Join us this month as we explore these issues in our series, “Talking Points: The Perfect Blend of Faith and Politics.”

Pastors Laffit, Nelson, and Brian

The Gospel Story - Episode 8: Meet ABRAM

After many large overarching stories covering hundreds of years, the Genesis story now slows down to focus on the life of a single man: Abram from Ur. Who is this new figure and why is he so important?

DIGITAL BULLETIN
Click Here
The digital version of our October Bulletin is now on our website for your reading pleasure.
In this issue, our Pastors introduce us to this month’s theme, which is: Talking Points: The Perfect Blend of Politics and Religion; a topic which is so relevant for this time.
Peggy Exumé challenges us to have a healthy heart not just physically but also spiritually. She also presents a new twist on toast with her quick and delicious Sweet Potato “Toast” recipe.
Sarah Fernández reminds us that as parents, the manner in which we respond when interacting with individuals with differing political viewpoints will determine how our children deal with others and with conflicts.
Caleb Cortes shares his thoughts on 2020 so far and encourages us not to add to the noise but to do our part and to vote.
Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, Chantal Guillaume provides more information not only about breast cancer, but about another disease that affects the breasts, and how to self-examine, since early detection is key.
We encourage you to share this informational and valuable issue with your friends and family.
Please send your comments and suggestions on how we can better serve you and improve our Bulletin to communications@miamitemple.org
