It seems to have been a quiet week for big news items, and that's not bad. Where I am it is cold and snowy, it looks like you are inside one of those little glass orbs you shake up and it looks like a snow scene. Big flakes of snow are swirling around my office windows. I have a fire going in the fireplace and some steaks ready for the grill. Can't wait to get to it.

Lebanon has been experiencing street demonstrations since the assassination of former prime minister Rafik Hariri three weeks ago. Thousands of Lebanese have gone into the streets demanding Syria withdraw troops from Syria and stop its interference in internal politics.

The month of April marks a quarter-century that Robert Mugabe has been the able to
maintain an iron grip on Zimbabwe as its first and only prime minister. But now in his 82nd year, he hungers for something that has as yet eluded him: Legitimacy in the eyes of the world.

That gives both outside observers and Zimbabweans reason to hope that fair parliamentary elections may take place on March 31.

I was reading recently that Germany's marquee auto brand, Mercedes Benz, is no longer the top engineered car in the world. Plagued by increasing breakdowns and repairs many German taxi owners are buying other brand cars for their fleets. This is a symptom of the rising problems of unemployment the nation is facing.

A few weeks ago the citizens of Ukraine marched in an "Orange Revolution" to protest the heavy hand of a government that did not want to abide by recent elections. They forced another election that had to be respected, and the result is a change in government and a hope for better times.

On January 30th Iraqis went to the polls, under great threat from terrorists, to cast ballots for a new government. It was an historic event for that country to take part in elections with this much freedom.

"There is deep concern in our country that a transfer of weapons would be a transfer of technology to China, which would change the balance of relations between China and Taiwan, and that's of concern."

This article was recommended to me to read. You bring the issue of obedience right to the point. Sin is what God says is sin and not what we think is ok and not ok.

Thank you for the warning Mr. Moss.

For years now I really haven't gone to the movies anymore. Most movies are of immorality. I find myself going to the Christian bookstore and purchasing those movies instead. Sure there are wrong choices made these stories (just like we all make in our own lives) but God is brought...
