Welcome to one of my favorite RS&A website pages. As a Christian faith based company, we have come to depend on God's Holy Word for our daily living and certainly for our company business decisions. As we discuss business opportunities and relationships in our industry, we know that if we stay on the high road and seek God's guidance and wisdom, He will continue to bless our company and our families. As mere mortals, we all fall short of the Glory of God, but we can, and should, make every effort to follow the teachings of Christ as we diligently work to use the sciences He has given us to serve His children. In that regard, the scriptures listed below include some of our employee's personal favorites that they call upon to guide them in their daily walk. Enjoy with me the reading of His Word.
