    DR. CUMMINGS: Challenging authority

    “Do it because I said so!” is a scream we’ve often heard when exasperated parents have to silence their questioning and challenging children. The kids want to know why: “Why do I have to go to school?” “Why do I have to do my homework?” “Why...


    DR. CUMMINGS: Is religion dead?

    Some people moving to Middle Georgia might easily believe that religion is dead for one of two reasons:


    DR. CUMMINGS: Those crazy paradigms

    Last Sunday in the online comment space, one of our local hospital MDs wrote a scathing attack against me -- not against my column -- stating that I had been a motivational phony for 20 years on TV, but now I was showing my true colors by belittling and degrading those who have different viewpoints...


    CUMMINGS: I apologize

    Last Sunday, I wrote a column on political correctness, and I inferred that our president lied when he rolled out his health care plan and said: “if you want to keep your doctor, you can.” The president was definitely wrong; we know that now. But was I right? Did the president really...

    DR. CUMMINGS: The leadership mind-set

    Are you a leader? A parent, a teacher or a manager? Maybe you’re a lawyer or a doctor or the head librarian. How about a pastor or rabbi, the sheriff or police chief? Regardless of your position, the question remains: Are you a leader? If you have power over other people (even one or two) ...


    DR. CUMMINGS: The little ledge in hell

    Many years ago, a little 8-year-old girl sat in church with her mother. Every Sunday and every Wednesday she listened to her pastor urging everyone to “receive Jesus in your heart and come forward.” She would watch her little friends fold their hands and march smugly up to the altar...


    DR. CUMMINGS: Grist for the sermon mill

    This morning and every Sunday morning, Christian pastors all over Middle Georgia will be searching for sermon material. “How can I keep them awake this morning?” I know this because I had to do it for 10 years myself. It ain’t easy.
