    DR. CUMMINGS: Hanukkah means dedication

    The eight days and eight nights of Hanukkah begin this coming Tuesday and end on Christmas Eve. Only one out of a 100 of us in Middle Georgia is Jewish. Ninety-nine of us have never played Dreidels, never lit the eight candles of the menorah and never really thought about the meaning of Hanukkah.

    DR. CUMMINGS: Pearl Harbor Day

    I remember 1941. We didn’t have television in those days. Most of us sat around the family radio in the evenings after dinner. I was 10 years old and completely mesmerized by the sounds of Japanese planes bombing and strafing our sailors at Pearl Harbor, and the serious tone of the radio ...

    DR. CUMMINGS: The search for sensible spirituality

    Tomorrow we start the month of December. It’s our “spiritual month,” isn’t it? But what does this really mean?

    CUMMINGS: What’s up with America?

    The poor people in other countries would love to have all the things our American poor people have; yet our government wants to make us just like those other countries.

    Starting very soon, the speed limit on Interstate 75 to Atlanta will be a straight 70 mph. No more of these 55s and 65s. The law is changing. Why? Well, if you drive up to Atlanta every week like I do, you know that nobody drives 55 anymore.

    DR. CUMMINGS: The pope and I

    Pope Francis and I have similar backgrounds. Both of us spent college and eight years of graduate school in a highly structured monastic-like atmosphere, studying the same textbooks, reading the same manuscripts, listening to the same religious instructions, chanting the Psalms in Latin, and finally...

    DR. CUMMINGS: A lot of Americans are ‘damn good’

    When you rode your donkey down this winding, treacherous road from Jerusalem to Jericho back in the 1st century, you were going from one country (Judah) to another (Samaria), and you needed to watch your back. The Jews treated the Samaritans like lepers and vice versa; they wouldn’t touch...

    DR. CUMMINGS: Who wants to be meek?

    ‘Blessed are the meek”? Not a chance. I’ve been a leadership consultant for 30 years and I have never urged one of my leaders to be “meek.” Courageous, strong, confident -- yes, but not meek. “When the going gets tough, the tough gets going.” All ...

    DR. BILL CUMMINGS: WOMEN AND THE BIBLE

    The Bible is one of the most anti-feminine, “down with women” books in the library. Oh, sure, you can find passages (and even small books like Esther and Ruth) that exalt the role of certain women, but for the most part, the Hebrew and Christian Bibles are openly, blatantly misogynistic...
