May Akron Roundtable Prayer 
Thursday, May 19, 2011, 09:00 AM - Prayers, Kiwanis
Posted by Administrator
Our Akron Roundtable speaker was Richard K. Vedder Professor of Economics, Ohio University whose topic was "Why College Costs Too Much and What We Can Do About It"

Here's my prayer:
Higher Power, as we consider the cost of education, we thank you for the dreamers who founded institutions, the generous who funded them, the planners that built them, and the staff, administrators and teachers that bring learning to life.

We also pause to remember all those who have paid more than we ever will, those who served their country in the armed forces, who sacrificed so that generations that follow would have the opportunities they would die for.

Now may wisdom come into our hearts,
and knowledge always be pleasant to our souls;
may prudence watch over us,
and understanding guard us all our days. Amen.


The last section is from Proverbs 2:10-11 (NRSV)

Akron Roundtable is held at noon on the third Thursday of every month, Akron Roundtable is a non-partisan forum.

Our Akron Roundtable speaker was Gary Hanson Executive Director, The Cleveland Orchestra.

Here's my prayer:
Creator of the Music of the Spheres,
may we hear not only the melody played by human desire
but also by the sustained chords of creation
as they move us through time and space
closer to harmony with You
in a great chorus of humanity. Amen.

The Good One

The Tool Ark

Like a Workshop Noah, if my Dad had anything; he had at least two of them. From several wrench sets to two arc welders, he had the the good one and the other one.

Sometimes, he just wanted one tool for the basement workshop and another for the garage, (and maybe one for the car). Other times there was a good deal on a tool and he bought them all. Or one tool was not quite perfect, but not quite worn out, so he bought another but kept the old for sacrificial projects.

Click for more tools
My brothers and I learned early that not only could we borrow tools, but when borrowing, to always ask for "the good one". Usually, we didn't know what the good one was but Dad knew, and that is the one he gave us.

If someone tells you that God gave them them something bad, from an earthquakes to blunt screwdriver, remember my Dad, for like all good parents, God always gives "the good one".

Hope you always give your best to God and God's children.


Giving Good Gifts

"Ask, and it will be given you; search, and you will find; knock, and the door will be opened for you. For everyone who asks receives, and everyone who searches finds, and for everyone who knocks, the door will be opened. Is there anyone among you who, if your child asks for bread, will give a stone? Or if the child asks for a fish, will give a snake? If you then, who are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give good things to those who ask him!" - Matthew 7:7-11

Akron Roundtable Prayer 
Thursday, February 17, 2011, 09:00 AM - Prayers, Kiwanis
Posted by Administrator
Our Akron Roundtable speaker was Dr. Frank Douglas President & CEO, Austin BioInnovation Institute.

Although I am a Presbyterian, and sinfully proud of it, I am fond of our brothers and sisters in the UCC (United Church of Christ). I borrowed from and gave credit to one of theirs for this months prayer, Olivia Masih White, Ph.D., a professor of genetics and a longtime member of the United Church of Christ.

Here's Dr. White's prayer:
We thank you, O God,
for the wisdom and knowledge you bestow upon scientists
who work at revealing the secrets of creation.
We stand in awe and wonder at the history of the universe
and of life on this planet.
This knowledge strengthens our faith in your creative power.
We are grateful for this wonderful creation
and for being a part of your blessing. Amen.
