What really moved Jesus?

Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear By Mike GillandI love stories, and I have been called on more than one occasion a “storyteller.”  Stories are so much more than mere reports of incidents. Stories are containers of emotions, memories, truth, and inspiration.  All that, and more. I especially love the stories contained in the Bible, both Old and New Testaments. I have fond memories of wide-eyed wonder, hearing the dramatic telling of Joshua’s battle at Jericho, Israel’s crossing the Red Sea, of David and his battle with the giant Goliath, of Jesus as He stilled the raging waters of the Sea of Galilee and so many more.As a child, I learned much about Jesus through the stories that I heard about Him, and from those that I later read for myself, in the Bible. I learned that Jesus was not afraid to face Satan straight on, as He was tempted in the wilderness at the outset of His earthly ministry. I read that Jesus didn’t show the slightest concern during that aforementioned storm at sea, even though His disciples were downright stricken with fear.  I even learned that a shortage of money to pay the temple tax did not worry the Lord! (See Matthew 17.)These stories about Jesus show that He was unfazed by most things.  But…there WAS something that moved Him. What moved the Lord? People.  On more than one occasion, Jesus was moved with compassion. In Matthew 9, Jesus was deeply moved when he saw the crowds, who were like sheep without a shepherd.  In Mark 5, Jesus stopped in His tracks and was touched by the faith of the woman who needed healing. In John 11, He was moved to tears at the news that his dear friend had passed away.Today, I am comforted in knowing that I serve the God of compassion, whose Son is the Prince of Peace and the Lord of Lords. Jesus is THE Lord, undaunted by the everyday challenges of life, but filled with compassion at the needs of His people.  I know that the story of my life moves Him. And you can have confidence in the fact that He is mindful – even moved – by what you are facing today. Mike Gilland is Operations Manager for The Shepherd Radio Network, a group of radio stations in Florida that features the “Christian Teach/Talk” format.  Mike hosts a daily talk radio show in the 2 PM hour called “Afternoons with Mike”, talking to local pastors and newsmakers.  In Orlando, The Shepherd is heard on WIWA, AM 1270.   In addition to his broadcast experience, Mike spent 36 years in full-time ministry as a pastor and worship leader.  As a guitarist, Mike performs at concerts, restaurants, private parties, etc. He is married to Cindy, the father of four grown children and grandfather to seven grandchildren.

Non-profits use open source software

first_img Open source software is low-cost and often runs well on slightly older computer hardware. No wonder non-profit organisations are taking an interest in it.Writing in Newsforge, the online newspaper on Linux and open source software, Grant Gross says that open source software and non-profits are a match made in heaven. One intranet software company told him “There’s probably more interest [in open source software] from non-profits than any other vertical we target.”The reasons for this interest include better products from Linux vendors, the use of Linux by more for-profit companies, and of course licensing changes at Microsoft and the cost of buying and running commercial software.

Press freedom recommendations for President Mubarak’s fifth term

None of these incidents was investigated.”Meanwhile, the authorities have closed down more newspapers than ever, and self-censorship is practiced in all the tolerated newspapers, whether governmental, opposition or independent.“We reiterate our appeal to President Mubarak to undertake the political reforms worthy of a democracy and to comply with the Arab Charter on Human Rights during his fifth term,” Reporters Without Borders concluded. In an appeal to President Hosni Mubarak after his presumably successful re-election bid yesterday, Reporters Without Borders today said reforms were essential and urgent in order to give Egypt more press freedom, and it voiced particular concern about the authoritarian and undemocratic measures against journalists of the past few months.

Bottom-line bonus is the order of the day

first_imgBottom-line bonus is the order of the dayOn 2 May 2000 in Personnel Today Previous Article Next Article When it comes to selling in flexibility to the board, warm soft benefits donot figure – directors want bottom-line bonus. In order to establish whetherflexible working is right for your business we have created a simple model thatreflects the traditional profit and loss account. The difference is in theaddition of “cost savings” as a third category.Revenue Let’s take revenue first, for which there are four main indicators:increased productivity from your existing resource, increased output from theadditional resource, positive corporate PR and the revenue which will accruefrom meeting the demands of 24-hour culture. The measurement for increasedproductivity from existing staff should be measured pre and post flexiblepolicy, or with control groups in a pilot study. This measurement can comprisefive or 10 indicators for each individual’s performance, which can then bemeasured against their dealings with colleagues, customers, suppliers andmanagement. Certain assumptions can then be made looking at low (5 per cent),medium (10 per cent) and high (25 per cent) increases in revenue per employeeas a target.The increased output from a new resource – such as that achieved by jobsharing – needs to be measured against a suitably adjusted scale. For example,a typical job share will yield the company a six, rather than five-day week,therefore if the target revenue per employee is £10,000 a month you will needto adjust it to £12,000 per month for each job share. With positive PR, you will need to borrow the methods of the communicationsindustry and estimate the number of opportunities to see that any publicitygenerates, and therefore the conversion to likely revenue. And, for 24-hourservice (if this is relevant to your organisation), opportunities for sales atvarious times should be researched and tested.OverheadThere will, of course, be overheads – in other words your budget allocation– but some will be one-off expenses such as creating a current audit status,what are you doing now, what the business needs are , what staff want, settingup a new system, training it in and internal communication. There may also beextra head count with attendant tax and National Insurance, and possibly extrastaff benefits including car, pensions and childcare allowance. The final itemin the overhead column should be operational logistics, the investment inremote access technology. When calculating the overhead remember that the Chancellor’s latest budgetgives business incentives to invest in research and development, so whether yougo it alone or bring in consultancy support, grants may be available.Cost savingWhen it comes to cost saving, there is more good news. Reduction in costs ofrecruitment and training through better staff retention, cost-effective officespace (will you need such big premises in the future, can you locate in a lessexpensive area, will your staff be able to hot desk?) and tax relief forimplementing a flexible policy.What all these P&L measurements should show is a realistic picture ofhow flexibility can drive your business through bottom line contribution.EasyJet can certainly show that it has driven its business: by creating abusiness environment which reflects its business strategy, it experienced a 60per cent increase in revenue and a 30 per cent reduction in costs – atraditional model would give it an increased bottom line of 200 per cent.

Fathers’ working week gets longer by the hour

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. The number of hours fathers are working in an average week is on the rise,research by the Equal Opportunities Commission (EOC) reveals. The survey finds that during 2001 a father’s average working week was 47.3hours, an increase of nearly 5 per cent on 1998 when fathers worked an averageof 45.1 hours a week. Sixty-six per cent of fathers were working more than 41 hours per week in2001, compared with 62 per cent three years earlier. The proportion of fathersworking overtime, paid or unpaid, also increased by 2 per cent from 51 per centto 53 per cent. Commenting on the figures, released on Father’s Day (16 June), EOCchairwoman Julie Mellor urged employers to put more emphasis on work-lifebalance policies to give dads a chance to spend more time with their children. “Father’s Day is an opportunity for families to celebratefatherhood,” she said. “But dads are dads all year long, not just onone special day. These figures suggest that many children are seeing less oftheir dad than they used to. This is really bad news for families. “Despite growing awareness of the importance of achieving a balancebetween work and family, men are still missing out on the opportunity to beinvolved in caring for their children, and children are missing out on havingtheir dad around. The challenge for employers is to enable dads to break out ofthe straitjacket of long and inflexible working hours.” www.eoc.org.uk Fathers’ working week gets longer by the hourOn 25 Jun 2002 in Personnel Todaylast_img read more

Latitudinal extent of the January 2005 solar proton event in the Northern Hemisphere from satellite observations of hydroxyl

first_imgWe utilise hydroxyl observations from the MLS/Aura satellite instrument to study the latitudinal extent of particle forcing in the northern polar region during the January 2005 solar proton event. MLS is the first satellite instrument to observe HOx changes during such an event. We also predict the hydroxyl changes with respect to the magnetic latitude by the Sodankyla Ion and Neutral Chemistry model, estimating the variable magnetic cutoff energies for protons using a parameterisation based on magnetosphere modelling and the planetary magnetic index K-p. In the middle and lower mesosphere, HOx species are good indicators of the changes in the atmosphere during solar proton events, because they respond rapidly to both increases and decreases in proton forcing. Also, atmospheric transport has a negligible effect on HOx because of its short chemical lifetime. The observations indicate the boundary of the proton forcing and a transition region, from none to the ‘full’ effect, which ranges from about 57 to 64 degrees of magnetic latitude. When saturating the rigidity cutoff K-p at 6 in the model, as suggested by earlier studies using observations of cosmic radio noise absorption, the equatorward boundary of the transition region is offset by approximate to 2 degrees polewards compared with the data, thus the latitudinal extent of the proton forcing in the atmosphere is underestimated. However, the model predictions are in reasonable agreement with the MLS measurements when the K-p index is allowed to vary within its nominal range, i.e., from 1 to 9 in the cutoff calculation.last_img read more
