    “Simeon’s Song: What a Way to Go!” (Luke 2:22-40)This month we have been spending the Advent and Christmas seasons in the Gospel of Luke. All of our sermons have come from there, particularly from Luke’s so-called “Infancy Narrative,” chapters 1 and 2, dealing with the events surrounding the birth of Christ. We’ve especially been looking at the canticles we find in Luke 1-2, those poetic, psalm-like pieces included there. We’ve looked at three so far: Mary’s song, the Magnificat; Zechariah’s song, the Benedictus; and the song of the Christmas angels, the Gloria in Excelsis. Now today we wrap up this...

    Danica Patrick's fourth and final Daytona start in 2012 ended just like the first three; with a crash. Patrick qualified third and spent most of the evening near the front, leading five times for a career-high 13 laps, and missed the race's 14-car pileup because she was at the head of the pack. It wouldn't have been a stretch to say that Patrick might have had the race's best car. But 17 laps later, Patrick wasn't so lucky. Jeffrey Earnhardt went around off the bumper of Ricky Stenhouse ahead of Patrick, and Patrick, who was on the outside as the...

    Goodbye Anna Chapman, hello Anna Fermanova. NY Post tracked down the story of a 24-year-old Latvian who was caught at JFK on her way to Moscow with a $7,000 Raptor 4X Night Vision Weapons Sight and with two other night-vision devices worth $4,000 each. The timeline is a somewhat confusing. US Customs detained the blonde bombshell back in March, confiscated her weapons gear, and allowed her to fly to Moscow. She was arrested on return to the US, earlier this month. Now she is in house arrest at her parent's place in Plano, TX. Her side of the story: "I...

    Posing for a series of photos, this is the woman at the centre of the alleged Russian spy network uncovered in the U.S. In one, Anna Chapman - the name she gave investigators - smiles coyly at the camera wearing a shiny green tracksuit top and black-and-white striped T-shirt as she poses in front of Big Ben. The 28-year-old redhead apparently lived and worked in London for five years before allegedly becoming part of a spy ring based in the States which sent secrets back to the Kremlin.

    Anna Chapman has the face of an angel. A stylish redhead with model looks and a master's degree in economics, the 28-year-old lived the New York high-life, renting a $2,100-a-month apartment and hobnobbing with Manhattan's social elite. She also was a "practiced deceiver" who worked as an agent for the Russian government, attempting to secretly transmit information from her laptop computer to a Russian government computer, according to U.S. federal prosecutors. Chapman, along with 10 others, was charged Monday with conspiracy to act as an agent of a foreign government without notifying the U.S. attorney general, which carries a maximum...

    She's a "practiced deceiver." Those are the words prosecutors used to describe Anna Chapman, a red-headed 28-year-old accused of spying for Russia. Chapman, a divorcee who appeared in a white T-shirt and designer jeans, stood before magistrate judge Ronald Ellis in a Manhattan federal court Monday evening along with four others arrested on charges of conspiring to act as "unregistered agents of a foreign government." Chapman's attorney, Robert M. Baum, asked the judge to dismiss the charge of conspiracy, saying his client committed no crime by communicating with a member of a foreign government and called the acts listed in...

    There was also a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel of the tribe of Asher. She was very old; she had lived with her husband seven years after her marriage and then was a widow until she was eighty-four. She never left the temple but worshiped night and day, fasting and praying. Coming up to them at that very moment, she gave thanks to God and spoke about the child to all who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem. Luke 2:36-38 Have you ever wondered why these three verses were included in Scripture? In keeping with the overall...

    If 2007 was shaped by anything, it was the scuffle to pay for information about Anna Nicole Smith. Before her death on Feb. 8, 2007, I had rarely, if ever, thought about Smith. I certainly had not written much about her. The birth of her baby the previous September was not that interesting. The death of her grown son was, but not that much. He wasn’t a celebrity. She was a Grade D personality, a buffoonish comic strip, a Marilyn Monroe pretender.

    The two judges who oversaw the Anna Nicole Smith cases in Florida's Broward Circuit Court are swapping jobs -- at least temporarily. Chief Judge Dale Ross ordered the moves Tuesday in the wake of complaints and a newspaper editorial that Circuit Judge Lawrence Korda should be moved out of family court until his misdemeanor drug charge is resolved. Korda, who briefly oversaw the paternity dispute involving Smith's baby daughter, was cited on March 18 for possession of one marijuana cigarette weighing less than 0.1 gram. Police said they caught him smoking pot in a Hollywood, Fla., park. Circuit Judge Larry...

    Loss of Sharapova blow to Gold Coast Organisers of the Australian Women's Hardcourts have conceded Maria Sharapova's withdrawal is a blow for the Gold Coast tournament.

Tournament director Liz Smylie said while the loss of Sharapova was unfortunate, the return of Martina Hingis would ensure there was still plenty of interest in the event. "I've got media...
