Welcome to December 2014! What a month November was for us here in Central Virginia weather-wise; literally one day we were running the heater and the next day it was air conditioner time. And, when can you remember it snowing before Thanksgiving - twice? I enjoy some snow; ok, I enjoy a lot of snow! But please, we really don't need any of those crazy amounts of snow that fell in many parts of the country in November. Lets hope for a moderate, mild winter!

Food for the Soul by Pastor Leroy Davis
NAME THEM ONE BY ONE
SPECIAL NOTE: Pastor Leroy is recovering from Pneumonia, so we have his article from December 2012. We all wish him a speedy recovery!
I was recently challenged by one of my favorite authors to ask myself this question - who are the people that are currently influencing your life the most? This is neither the first time I have been challenged with this sort of question, nor is it the first time I have challenged others to ask a question like this of themselves. I am not really sure why this resonated with me in the way that it did, but I took it to heart. What resulted has become the core of what I am thankful to God for this Christmas season.
I began to think about the people who have had the most influence in my life. I began making a list and that list kept growing. My mind was at once flooded with the names and faces of the many people who have spoken into and shaped my life. I thought about the many Sunday School teachers I had growing up.

BOOK REPORT ON FARMACOLOGY BY DAPHNE MILLER
Farmacology demonstrates the intricately woven connections between agriculture and health care. The author traveled extensively to visit numerous farms, ranches, gardens, agronomists, biologists, and medical scientists. She allowed her bored, 16 year old daughter to volunteer for 6 weeks on a holistic ranch, which as a result, transformed her outlook and life goals.
Why is this concept relevant, that of connecting farming with health? Our health (or disease) care system is failing miserably when it comes to long-term health outcomes. The technology and chemistry of modern medicine saves lives from emergency situations such as trauma, acute infections, etc. It can treat symptoms and can prolong the dying process, but it largely fails to promote healthy longevity.
