Biblical perspectives for living

ROBERT MURRAY McCHEYNE

Many great servants of God have lived relatively brief lives. One such was Robert Murray McCheyne. Born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1813, he and his family faithfully attended the Church of Scotland, but he viewed religion largely as a moralistic endeavour.

He began attending a church where the Gospel of the grace of God was clearly preached, and he became deeply convicted of his own sin and need of a Saviour. While the exact circumstances of his conversion to Christ are now unclear, we know that he underwent a transformation that caused him to want to know Christ more and to lead others to a saving knowledge of Him. He subsequently entered the Christian ministry

Passport for a child

Question: I am taking my 3-year-old on holidays abroad. Her surname is different from mine and I'm not in touch with her father, my ex-partner. Can I put her on my passport?

An application for a passport for a child living in Ireland is made on form APS 1 (pdf), and the child's full birth certificate, showing the parents' names, must be submitted with it. The application form includes a section for parental consent, which must be signed.

Going by a posted United schedule, says Purdue aerospace engineering professor Steven Collicott, "I see it takes six hours to fly nonstop from New York to Los Angeles, but only five hours to return. At this latitude, the prevailing winds and jet streams are on average west to east. One hour out of six may not be much to someone working a notebook computer, but for someone traveling with four

That so many people are waiting for treatment in one of the most developed economies in the world is truly frightening.
