  • Once-reluctant Mitt Romney opens up on the campaign trail - “Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. Can’t Lose!”

    Washington Post ^ | October 6, 2012 | Philip Rucker,
    ST. PETERSBURG,Fla.—Mitt Romney, his friends often say, is a private man in a public world. But with just one month left until the election, he has calculated that to win the presidency he must do what for years he has been loath to: share intimate stories about his life.So it was that as the sun set on his rally here Friday night,...Romney talked about David for the first time himself.“It was clear he was not going to make it,”Romney said. “I went into his room one night when he was in bed,and he asked me a very difficult question. He...
  • Siljander pleads guilty in Islamic American Relief Agency lobbying case

    07/09/2010 9:23:47 PM PDT · by Chet 99 · 5 replies
    Thursday, July 8, 2010 A former congressman pleaded guilty Wednesday to serving as an unregistered agent in Washington for a Missouri-based Islamic charity that the federal government said had ties to international terrorism. It was an odd outcome for Mark D. Siljander, who said he wanted to help bridge the gulf between Muslims and Christians. A Republican who attained one of Michigan's congressional seats from 1981 to 1987 with assistance from the Moral Majority, Siljander was outspoken about conservative social issues. Siljander confirmed in a Kansas City, Mo., court that he contacted members of Congress in an effort to lift...

    Vanity | 11/23/2011 | Michael Bugg
    I've got a friend who recently got into the trucking industry and is having to pay his dues, so to speak. He doesn't have a regular route yet and it's been a long time since he's been home to Georgia. He's extremely lonely right now. He will be in Illinois sometime tonight or tomorrow morning, heading from Arkansas to Chicago. Is there anyone in Illinois who would be willing to take in a "homeless" Messianic for Thanksgiving tomorrow? Thanks in advance and shalom.

    Time -- Healthland ^ | November 11, 2011 | Meredith Melnick
    In the latest study to link church-going with well-being, researchers find that people who attend religious services regularly are more optimistic and less depressed than their non-religious peers. Previous research has suggested that people who attend services are also happier and more satisfied and live longer too. (On the other hand, they tend to be fatter.) The new study, published in the Journal of Religion and Health, included data on 93,000 middle-aged women who participated in the long-running Women's Health Initiative. Led by Eliezer Schnall, an associate professor of clinical psychology at Yeshiva University in New York City, researchers found...

    Dr. Howard Dean’s fans come out for the big Democratic summer shindig As Tom Andrews, the director of the leading national antiwar coalition, began his speech at the Maine Democrats’ big outdoor summer shindig in Falmouth, John Baldacci signaled his bodyguard/driver to move the large, dark SUV up the driveway. The vehicle soon hid in the trees, its engine quietly humming. At first, the governor seemed to be paying attention as Andrews, the former First District congressman, launched into rousing tales of how the country, under President George W. Bush, had gone "from peace and prosperity to war and recession."...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 15, 2008 – Frequent military relocations can take a toll on spouses’ careers unless they have a portable skill, which is exactly what one foundation has set out to provide them. The Financial Industry Regulatory Authority Investor Education Foundation has partnered with the Association for Financial Counseling and Planning Education to offer military spouses a chance to earn the “accredited financial counselor” credential. The credential gives spouses the ability to work in financial counseling, nationwide, either on or off military installations, said Gerri Walsh, associate vice president of authority’s office of investor education. “It is a well...

    Less than 70 years ago, a madman named Adolf Hitler set out to convince the world that people with any amount of Jewish blood posed a threat to the human race and had to be exterminated for the sake of all mankind. His twisted vision set into motion a chain of events that even today leaves us breathless in consideration of its viciousness and scope. On Nov. 9, we commemorated the first of these pre-World War II pogroms, Kristallnacht, which marked the beginning of the end for European Jews. Last week, a survey released by the European Union reported that...

    March 4, 2003 So Many Blessings Read: Ephesians 1:3-14Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing. —Ephesians 1:3 Bible In One Year: Joshua 16-18 When disaster strikes, people are exceedingly generous in their outpouring of assistance. After the terrorist attacks in September 2001, New York City was flooded with an estimated $75 million worth of towels, blankets, flashlights, water bottles, canned beans, shovels, toothpaste, stuffed animals, radios, rubber boots, and thousands of other items. There was so much stuff that those affected could not use it all. This reminds...

    March 3, 2003 A Life-And-Death Matter Read: Romans 8:12-18If by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. —Romans 8:13 Bible In One Year: Joshua 13-15 Nature is violent. Life and death are the law of field, stream, and jungle. A lion stalks a gazelle. A heron stands motionless at the edge of a pond, its sharp beak poised and ready to kill. High overhead a red-tailed hawk holds its deadly talons close to its body, watching for movement in the grass below. A leopard family exists at a zebra's expense. Each survives on...

    March 2, 2003 Credit Due Read: Romans 16:1-16Phoebe our sister . . . has been a helper of many and of myself also. —Romans 16:1-2 Bible In One Year: Joshua 10-12 In 1946, when the US Army unveiled its 30-ton computer called ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator And Computer), two men named John Mauchly and J. Presper Eckert received all the credit. But it was six women behind the scenes who made the computer work. Before Mauchly and Eckert took the stage to demonstrate ENIAC, the women had programmed the complex machine. They received no recognition at the time, but historians...

    March 1, 2003 Special But Not Spoiled Read: Ephesians 6:1-4Do not provoke your children to wrath, but bring them up in the training and admonition of the Lord. —Ephesians 6:4 Bible In One Year: Joshua 7-9 Family counselor John Rosemond asks, "Is your child special . . . the most exceptional person in the world?" He answers, "Of course—to you!" Rosemond says that letting your child know he's special to you is healthy, but no child should grow up thinking he's more special than others. "That child," he warns, "is likely to think he's also deserving of special things and...

    February 28, 2003 A Purpose That Sustains Read: 2 Corinthians 11:21-29For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain. —Philippians 1:21 Bible In One Year: Joshua 4-6 Austrian psychiatrist Viktor Frankl was imprisoned by the Nazis during the Holocaust. Once set free, he wrote Man's Search For Meaning, which became a perennial bestseller. In it, Frankl shared an all-important lesson he had learned from his suffering: "There is nothing in the world, I venture to say, that would so effectively help one to survive even the worst conditions as the knowledge that there is a meaning in...

    February 27, 2003 A Long Obedience Read: Philippians 2:1-13Work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. —Philippians 2:12 Bible In One Year: Joshua 1-3 Every January, health club memberships dramatically increase and exercise rooms become crowded with what some people call "the New Year's resolution crowd." Fitness regulars know that by March many of the newcomers will be gone. "They don't see results as quickly as they think they will," says one club director. "People don't realize it takes a lot of work and perseverance to get in shape." It's a phenomenon we experience in the spiritual realm as...

We may sit or stand around the gravesite and listen respectfully while the minister commits the body to the earth and reads Bible verses about the resurrection. Then the casket is lowered into the ground. We may return later to leave some flowers and stand with heads bowed in memory and respect. Our loved one...

Read: John 5:24-40This is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent. —John 17:3 Bible In One Year: Deuteronomy 29-31 If God were to give professing believers a quiz on Christianity, many would score well. They would be able to answer "Yes, it's true" to questions such as: Did Christ die for your sins? Did He rise from the dead? Is He coming back to earth? Pastor and author Bruce Larson says that he grew up saying yes to these types of biblical doctrines....

    February 24, 2003 Eagle Flight Read: Isaiah 40:29-31He gives power to the weak. —Isaiah 40:29 Bible In One Year: Deuteronomy 26-28 I was watching an eagle in flight when for no apparent reason it began spiraling upward. With its powerful wings, the great bird soared ever higher, dissolved into a tiny dot, and then disappeared. Its flight reminded me of Isaiah's uplifting words: "Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but those who wait on the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles" (40:30-31). Life's heartbreaks...

    February 23, 2003 God's People, God's Honor Read: 2 Samuel 21:1-14I had concern for My holy name, which the house of Israel had profaned among the nations wherever they went. —Ezekiel 36:21 Bible In One Year: Deuteronomy 23-25 God's reputation is either enhanced or maligned by the attitudes and actions of His people. Today's Bible reading illustrates this truth. During the reign of David, God punished Israel with a 3-year famine because David's predecessor King Saul had attempted to exterminate the Gibeonites (2 Samuel 21:1). His action violated a solemn promise Joshua and the rulers of Israel had made with...

Read: Romans 3:21-28We conclude that a man is justified by faith apart from the deeds of the law. —Romans 3:28 Bible In One Year: Deuteronomy 20-22 A poll for U.S. News & World Report asked 1,000 adults their opinion about who would likely make it into heaven. At the top of that list, to no one's surprise, was a well-known religious figure. Several celebrities were also listed. But it was surprising to me that of the people being surveyed, 87 percent thought they themselves were likely to get into heaven. I can't help...

Read: Exodus 20:1-6You shall have no other gods before Me. —Exodus 20:3 Bible In One Year: Deuteronomy 17-19 The ability to work is a wonderful gift, but are we taking it too far? In the past, people left their jobs at the office, but now they come home to e-mail and phone messages. Dr. Dave Arnott, associate professor of management at Dallas Baptist University, says, "I don't know whether work is taking over family and community, or whether family and community are giving up their place to work. But I know the movement...
