DESCRIPTIONHow were government systems to function in "a more perfect union"? As you watch, ask yourself: Is it prudent for me to pursue a system of government based on "The Laws of Nature and of Nature's GOD"?
- 1. The Laws of Nature and of Natures God imply thatour intended form of government was to functionorganically; like a healthy micro system within a largermacro SYSTEM.So the question becomes:What is it that I am willing to supply to my currentmicro system that will effectively support and enhancethe efficiency of a larger macro System governed bythe Laws of Nature and of Natures God?

FileThis 47 minute presentation is designed to acquaint participants with 18th and 19thCentury concepts as they were defined by the words used in our nationsfounding documents. Definitions for the selected words were compiled fromWebsters 1828 Dictionary for the specific purpose of assisting theparticipant in accessing - and, achieving - their vocational goal(s). Pleasenote; the first slide in this presentation will need to be manually moved ("pgdn" on your keyboard) to the second. The rest of the slides seem to be insync with the narration.Conflict Resolution: Strategies for Transition FileIn this 1 hr. 10 min. presentation options for resolving conflict are presented from apsychological, social, scriptural and judicial perspective. A pattern suitablefor systemic change is offered.The Path - Self Knowledge - Developing Cohesive Groups FileIn this 15 minute exercise the participant will be asked to participate in animaginary walk. After the walk, the participant will be asked by thenarrator to honestly critique himself or herself. The participant will beasked how they responded to new information, obstacles, problemsand personal challenges along the path.When listened to in a group setting, this presentation provides acommon experience for group members. Such an experience, whenshared, is helpful in expediting the development of cohesive workinggroups. In sharing their experience along the path, each participant willrecognize a path that is unique to them, yet, in some ways, similar toothers. Some will recognize for the first time, that not everyone seesand experiences things and events in the same way that they did.Although "The Path" contains power point slides referencingScripture, the audio (without the slides) is equally suitable for itsintended use."The Ambulance Down in the Valley" FileThis has been updated to a 14 minute, two slide presentation. In the first slide Italk about the "normal distribution curve", and how our "intellect"affects our emotions and our decision making processes. In the secondslide, I recite a poem by an anonymous author that was popular in thelate 1980s and early 1990s. There were sequels to this poem. I choseAlan D. Goldbergs sequel for this narration. As you listen consider(among other things); the styles of leadership (shown as a back-dropon this slide) as they have evolved since the early 1990s, and how thepoems metaphor is related to "job creation" and a presumed need fornon-governmental charities and other agencies. As a correction to mynarrative, the American Counselor is not a "Journal".Dialogue - Communicating Opinions and Beliefs FileThis +/-11 minute presentation contains a short comparison between resilientand resistant behaviors and outlines the ground rules, and dos anddonts, for effective communication; specifically "dialogue".AM I A FAIR FIGHTER?
