The Way Home: Rodney Bullard on the heroes who shaped his life

Are there any heroes today? We asked Chick-Fil-A executive Rodney Bullard about his public service, his work with troubled youth, and about the heroes who shaped his life. Rodney is Vice-President of Community Affairs for Chick-Fil-A. Before coming to Chick-fil-A, Rodney served as an Assistant United States Attorney prosecuting complex criminal cases. For his service, the United States Attorney General presented him with the Department of Justice Director’s Award. Prior to this role, Rodney was selected as a White House Fellow, the nation’s most prestigious public service Fellowship. As a White House Fellow, Rodney was placed at NASA working directly for the NASA Administrator.  A decorated veteran, Rodney also served in the United States Air Force Judge Advocate General Corps eventually working at the Pentagon as a Congressional Legislative Liaison in the Office of the Secretary of the Air Force.

SBC Resolution on Human Dignity

I was grateful to see the messengers of the Southern Baptist Convention pass a strong resolution on human dignity. More than ever, Christians need to reclaim this biblical view and apply it to the way we see ourselves and our neighbors. I've included it below: WHEREAS, In the beginning, the Triune God chose to create humanity in His image and according to His likeness, such that “God created man in His own image; He created Him in the image of God; He created them male and female” (Genesis 1:26–27); and WHEREAS, God judged His creation of humanity to be very good indeed (Genesis 1:31), crowned humanity with honor and glory, making them rulers over the works of His hands (Psalm 8:5–6), and put eternity in all human hearts so we might seek after Him (Ecclesiastes 3:11); and WHEREAS, God’s precious likeness and image was passed down from Adam to his posterity, the human...

Counterfeit Gods? Apparently not. But really, why would he? Unlike me—who had spent a majority of his adult life in Christian ministry, swimming in theology—this faithful brother worked long hours and spent very little time online. He wasn’t on Twitter.
