Greetings from the Great Lakes!  As of this writing, the world is reeling from another wave of unsettling news. Syria seems to be on the brink of civil war.  The European Union is dealing with a severe financial and economic crisis that is threatening the existence of the Euro as a currency.  Fears are that if the currency fails, the European Union may dissolve as well.

Adding gravity to the situation is a slowing of China’s economy and the possibility of the United States slipping back into recession. The addition of our personal circumstances can make stress overwhelming.  In these two months we focus on two related subjects to help you through these trying times: “How and Why to Stay Calm in a Tumultuous World” and “Blessings Involve Personal Responsibility.”
