GOP Senators Push Back Against Trump’s Relentless McCain Attacks

WASHINGTON (AP) — Casting aside rare censure from Republican lawmakers, President Donald Trump aimed new blasts of invective at the late John McCain , even claiming credit for the senator’s moving Washington funeral and complaining he was never properly thanked. By the time the president began his anti-McCain tirade in Ohio on Wednesday, several leading Republicans had signaled a new willingness to defy Trump by defending the Vietnam War veteran as a hero seven months after he died of brain c...

Doing Less for God

A poor man inspires this little story, one you’ve probably heard. It’s called the Mexican Fisherman Story*, and it’s a parable about simplicity, about gaining more by doing less — indeed, about doing less for God. Thus, it’s about living at God’s perfect pace, not just during Lent — now under way — but always. Here’s the story: An American businessman was standing on the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several l...

‘Just Have More Faith’: How Bad Theology Hurts the Suffering

Why does God answer yes to some prayers and no to others? Why does God miraculously heal some people and not others? Why does disaster strike one city and not another? I’ve been pondering these questions since Hurricane Florence devastated much of Eastern North Carolina last year. I live in the center of the state, and contrary to the foreboding predictions, we were relatively unaffected. In response, a friend said, “I know why we were spared catastrophe and the storm circled our area and w...

A Comprehensive Guide to Due Diligence Issues in Mergers and Acquisitions

By Richard D. Harroch, David A. Lipkin, Richard V. Smith, and John Cook Mergers and acquisitions typically involve a significant amount of due diligence by the buyer. Before committing to the transaction, the buyer will want to ensure that it knows what it is buying, what obligations it is assuming, the nature and extent of the seller’s contingent liabilities, problematic contracts, litigation risks, intellectual property issues, and much more. This is particularly true in private company acquis...

The Health Benefits of Staying Organized: An Interview With John Linden

Ever since I moved into my very own office — away from the dirty laundry and magazine piles of my home office in the bedroom — I’ve been studying the relationship between space and productivity/mood. As I organize my files, hang paintings, and eliminate the first threats of clutter, I am paying special attention to what promotes health and creativity and what destroys it.

In today’s Gospel reading we hear Jesus telling his close disciples about his passion, death and resurrection. Jesus had been preparing his disciples to understand his mission and role as the Messiah, as the Christ of God. He tells them of his passion, death and resurrection after they had affirmed their faith in him as “the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” The Gospel reading teaches us about the true meaning of service. The mother of James and John had asked Jesus to assure places of honor ...

Doubting Thomas and the Divinity of Jesus

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to discuss the divinity of Jesus with a couple of Jehovah’s Witnesses. They deny this doctrine and instead believe that Jesus is a created being, so our conversation gave me a chance to see how they deal with various Scripture passages that to me seem like clear proof that Jesus really is God. For example, I brought up this verse: “Thomas answered him, ‘My Lord and my God!’” (John 20:28) This text comes towards the end of John’s Gospel, in one of Jesus’ res...

But no one knows us better than God. As Psalm 139 says so beautifully: O LORD, you search me and you know me. You yourself know my resting and my rising; You discern my thoughts from afar. You mark when I walk or lie down; You know all my ways through and through. Before ever a word is on my tongue, You know it, O LOR...

Solo Female Travel in England, Scotland, and Wales — A UK Guide

I have spent a LOT of time traveling alone in England, Scotland, and Wales. Much more than I originally intended. I went to Europe without a plan, ended up living for months at a time in two different cities in England, and used them as a base to explore the country. I never thought the UK would become one of my most extensively traveled countries. At the time, I was more interested in warmer, sexier, more exotic travel destinations — the UK seemed so boring compared to Thailand or Italy or Sou...
