The Virginia Department ~of Education has compiled a list of the top profession+ al knowledge and skills most sought after and iden- 'tiffed by Virginia employ- ers. 1.

READING AND WRITING: Art individual "reads and interprets work- ' place documents and i writes clearly. 3. CRITICAL + THINKING AND PROB- , LEM SOLVING: An indi- vidual analyzes and resolves problems that arise in completing assigned tasks. 4. HEALTH AND SAFETY: An individual follows safety guidelines and manages his or her per- sonal health. 5. ORGANIZA- TIONS, SYSTEMS, AND CLIMATES: An individ- ual identifies "big picture" issues and his or her role in full'riling the mission of the workplace. 6. LIFELONG LEARNING: An individ- ual continually acquires new industry-related infor- mation and improves pro- fessional skills. 7.

The pure in heart will see God Well, the Bible teaches that God made the world in six days and rested on the seventh day from all of His labor. He went on to say that L one day is as a thou- sand years and a thousand years is as one day with the Lord. My understanding is that we must be living way down in the Saturday evening of time. I believe that it is really later than we think. The Bible also teaches that the pure in heart shall see God. It says to lay aside every weight and every sin and all the weights that easily beset you and to run this race and to run it with faith. I believe that we, being the children of God, are required to love one anoth- er. Greater love hath no man than he that would lay down his life for his friend. That's what Jesus did for us. I think that we, as the children of God, need to be like, the Cyprus tree. We don t have them around here but they grow down in Alabama where there are a .~ .~. ~+. -~. ~ ~: ~. ~ ~- -?~ ~ * :: Cinema City :: Stadium lot of Cyprus trees. I under- stand that as they grow up, all the roots tie and mangle together. You'll never see a Cyprus tree blown over by the wind. In order to blow over one, there's got to be enough wind to uproot all of them because they are tied, mixed, and mangled together. Each one protects the other one. That is how we as Christians need to be. The Bible said that the whole body fitly joined together. The Bible speaks 22 times about a great shak- ing. Isaiah 2:19 and in verse 21 talks about when the Lord will shake this earth. I don't believe that's too far away until that times going to come. I believe that will be the time that people forget about their manmade denominations +(which that word's not even written in the Bible) and they are going to begin to realize that we are going to need each other and the pure in heart will see God. It won't matter if your name is in a book somewhere or even if it's carved in stone. What will matter is whether or not your name is written in the Lamb's Book of Life. Jesus will decide that case in John 5:22. 5909 OLD OSBORNE TURNPIKE * RICHMOND, VA i Movie Hotline For Sbowlimee i 27'6-679-4252 Check Showtirnes Online ; : C IENITR,e L_ : DRIVE- IN ~' ~c~'avooct, VA 276-679-3761 : ADULTS: $8 CHILDREN: ~ O~ f*oo ~eoeeee ~ell~ WWW.METALROOFOVER.COM 1-800-893d242 Thurs.
