Pay attention to how your conversations flow. If the dialogue only seems to course when flirtatious remarks are given, then begin to think that the relationship is nothing more than an escape to embracing the idea of love and not love, itself; this is a relationship built to satisfy the lust for attention and affirmation. If the dialogue halts when it gets too personal, within the realms of actually getting to know each other, or if it avoids this form of communication, then begin to believe that the relationship is a temporary affair and is worth nothing more than a one night stand.

The sun is not yet up over Maranatha Baptist Church, a little red brick building in a south Georgia pecan grove, and already the line to get in wraps around the sanctuary. Some near the front of the line slept on the church porch, or even in their cars.

The crowd consists of the faithful and the curious alike: They’ve gathered here this Sunday to try to catch the Sunday school teachings of former President Jimmy Carter.

The church, located in Plains, Ga., is Carter’s home church. The former president recently announced he was diagnosed with cancer – melanoma, which has spread to his brain. But he has made it clear that he won’t give up his regular teaching at Maranatha Baptist.
