A New Legacy

Pastor Rob Norris, The Crossings

By Rob Norris

This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.
Joshua 1:8

As a people, we are healthier but not happier. We are drenched in knowledge but parched for wisdom. Materially we are wealthy, but we suffer a profound poverty of the soul. The longer I live, the more I see that our nation needs a spiritual reformation in its inner spirit.

Nowhere is this more apparent than in the state of the family. The biblical values that built our great nation – once passed on from each generation to the next as a national treasure – are being questioned and dismissed. As a result, never before have we seen such deterioration in our homes:

Never before have so many children grown up in broken homes. Never before has the definition of marriage been altered to allow for two people of the same sex. Never before has the marriage covenant been viewed with such contempt by a generation of young people. Never before have parents been ridiculed for seeking to raise children with biblical values. Never before have so many Christians laughed, shrugged their shoulders or did nothing about adultery, divorce and sin. Never before has materialism been so flagrantly embraced over relationships. Never before has the family been in such need of a new legacy.

The pivotal national issue today is not crime; neither is it welfare, health care, education, politics, the economy, the media or the environment. The pivotal issue today is the spiritual and moral condition of individual men and women, husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, and families.

Nations are never changed until people are changed. The true hope for genuine change in the heart lies only in the life-changing power of Jesus Christ. Through Him, lives can be rebuilt. Through Him, families can be reformed.

Live It:
How has the deterioration of our homes affected your family?

Pray: That change in our country will begin with change in your lives and home.

Meeting @ 10:00 at River Heights Intermediate School 7227 Scholar Way, Eastvale CA.  Join us for family month in October.

Trusting and believing with you,

Eastvale – During the closed session portion of last night’s City Council Meeting, City Manager, Carol Jacobs, abruptly resigned, effective immediately. According to City Attorney, John Cavanaugh, he will serve as the City Manager until the next City Council meeting on Sept. 10.

At that meeting council members will announce an interim person until a permanent City Manager can be selected. The decision to appoint the City Attorney as next-in-command was a decision made just recently at the Aug. 13 council meeting; a motion that was moved by councilmember William Link and passed with a 3-1 vote (with council members Welch abstaining, and Mayor Pro-Team Adam rush voting No).
Councilmember Link said, “We are sad to see Carol go and wish her the best in any future endeavors she plans to pursue.”

According to Link, the City Council will begin reviewing applicants for the position and will hire an interim City Manager for 60 to 90 days while they finalize the ideal candidate choice. This will take place after the City posts the position, which according to Public Information Officer, Michele Nissen, should take a few weeks.
According to Nissen, the City cannot provide information about matters that happen during closed sessions, however, the City wishes Jacobs the best.

Mayor Pro-Tem Adam Rush said, “Carol is a great City Manager and devoted everything to establishing the City’s solid foundation. I wish her the best and know she will succeed in her career as a City Administrator.”
Carol Jacobs has been the City Manager for Eastvale just shy of two years, and made approximately $204,000, plus benefits.
