    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: Politically correct

    Are you politically correct? Do you accept your 3 “P’s” without question: your president, your pastor and your press? When they lie, do you cover it up and proceed without interruption to enjoy your life of friends, church and TV?


    DR. CUMMINGS: Either-or

    Which one are you: liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican, Catholic or Protestant, Christian or Jewish, believer or sinner?


    Dr. Cummings: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it

    You remember the Detroit car industry in the ‘70s: huge gas-guzzlers with long fins and big price tags. But they drove just fine -- for three or four years. Nothing wrong with these cars, not much to fix; “they weren’t broke.” So Detroit just kept pumping them out like...


    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.


    DR. CUMMINGS: Our Bible — one more time

    When I talked about our Bible three weeks ago, I knew I would get some interesting comments -- and I did. One of them urged me to ask God to open my heart so I could read HIS scriptures and find the truth. I understand this comment and I really do appreciate the love and concern that prompted it...


    DR. CUMMINGS: The 3 T’s

    We have enjoyed the leadership of a good boss and suffered through the foibles of a bad boss. We know the difference when we see it, but do we know how they got that way? What makes a loving father and husband become a tyrant at work? Why does a strong and common-sense mother give up her leadership...


    DR. CUMMINGS: I’m right; you’re wrong

    The most rewarding thing about writing these opinion columns is the reverse-opinion feedback that keeps appearing daily in the online edition of the paper, as well as the letters to the editor. Readers have their own opinions about politics, religion and life, and their opinions are absolutely right...
