You may remember that we studied the first half of Acts throughout the summer of 2013 in a series of messages entitled Breakthrough. Again and again, we saw how the presence and power of God’s Holy Spirit broke through and into the lives of people from every language group and nationality. Lives were changed. A new Christ-centered and Spirit-empowered community came into being. There was resistance to this breakthrough, of course. However, in Acts 1–15, we saw that with the resurrection of Jesus, the presence of the Holy Spirit, and the witness of the church, God’s kingdom would ultimately prevail against the kingdoms of this world.This summer, we will race through Acts 15–28 and see how God’s changeless gospel breaks forth into individual lives and societies and makes a transformative difference in a variety of ways. It’s the same gospel each time, but its outworking is new in each situation. We will see specific ways the gospel can, as the subtitle states, Break Forth into a World Filled with Bad News. For example, God’s gospel breaks forth:• Into those who feel like outsiders (15:1–29)• Into lives that feel trapped (16:22–40),• To those who seek the truth (17:10–15)• Into the minds of philosophers (17:16–34)• Into megacities (18–19)We will read the thrilling stories of changed lives that form our own heritage. J.B. Phillips wrote about these accounts penned by Dr. Luke, a man who was often an eyewitness to them:No one can read this book without being convinced that there is Someone at work in our world besides mere human beings. Perhaps because in their very simplicity, perhaps because of their readiness to believe, to obey, to give, to suffer, and if need be to die, the Spirit of God found what surely He must always be seeking—a fellowship of men and women so united in love and faith that He can work in them and through them with the minimum of hindrance. Consequently, it is a matter of sober historical fact that never before has any small body of ordinary people so moved the world that their enemies could say, with tears of rage in their eyes, that these men “have turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6).I believe that the world continues to be turned upside down. The same good news of Jesus and power of the Spirit are at work among us at Lake Avenue Church. Let us see what God will do as we listen and respond to His Word. May God’s power break forth into our own Pasadena, San Gabriel Valley, and California, and to the ends of the earth.To His Glory,Dr. Greg WaybrightSenior Pastor More Cool Stuff Community News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Top of the News Make a commentcenter_img First Heatwave Expected Next Week Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Community News EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Your email address will not be published.

Home moves to shrink by 200,000 following Brexit vote, says L&G chief

Therefore, he calculates, the market should be running at 1.7 or 1.8 million transactions a year not 1.2 million.“There are more people yet there are fewer housing transactions,” he said.The conference was attended by a mixed bag of industry leaders including Karl Knipe from Hertfordshire-based Kings Group and David Westgate, the recently-installed new chief executive of Andrews Property Group.During the debate Westgate said he thought changing demographics including greater labour mobility plus the building industry’s lack of house building are why transaction levels remains weak. “The house builders are drip feeding property into the market because fits in with their financial aspirations or their profit targets,” he said.Legal & General Brexit Steve Goodall October 11, 2016Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Navy’s last-second goal from Joe Varello stuns Syracuse, 13-12

first_imgBrothers Joe and Danny Varello walked up to the faceoff X with the score knotted and less than 10 seconds remaining. The elder, Navy’s Joe, edged his younger brother on the clamp and swam free off his attempt at defense around the 40-yard line.“Our decision on that face off was to set our guys back,” Joe said. “And if I could push the ball forward, to try and make a play.”The senior faceoff specialist then moved the ball over to Jeff Durden. The long-stick midfielder bobbled the pass. The ball lay loose on the turf. Joe scooped it off the bounce, his younger brother trailing behind him. The elder brother rifled a shot to the top left of the cage past SU goalkeeper Dom Madonna.With less than a second remaining, Joe emphatically fist pumped into the air before welcoming his teammates around him to celebrate the game-winning goal. Danny’s head hung, slowly walking away form a deflated SU team. Published on April 21, 2018 at 4:30 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] | @Schafer_44 Joe Varello’s final face-off win and subsequent goal were the deciding factors in a back and forth game for No. 9 Syracuse (7-5, 4-0 Atlantic Coast) against No. 14 Navy (9-4, 7-1 Patriot) in a 13-12 Midshipmen victory. The last time SU and Navy played was in the 2004 National Championship, with SU winning by one goal. Fourteen years later, the back and forth continued. Syracuse narrowly won the groundball battle by three, while Navy bested SU by two shots. The Midshipmen turned the ball over twice more than SU. Stephen Rehfuss posted seven points to Navy’s Jack Ray’s six. But in the end it was the matchup that had been hyped all week, brother against brother, that decided the game. Joe won 16 faceoffs to Danny’s 11.“To come here in the Carrier Dome, get behind a couple of goals and win it, especially at the end like they did, my hat’s off to the them,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said. “And Joe did a terrific job at the end and to get rewarded with a goal, he’ll probably remember that for a long time.”The brothers split the first two faceoffs of the game but Navy scored twice while Syracuse struggled to finish. Midway through the first quarter, Rehfuss snagged a loose ball and threaded a pass 20 yards toward the cage and SU attack Nate Solomon. On the doorstep, with no one but the Navy goalkeeper to beat, Solomon was stuffed. Navy retained possession.The next time SU had the ball, Rehfuss fed Bomberry in the middle of Navy’s zone defense. The shot clung off the crossbar. SU snatched the ball once more and this time, Rehfuss’ feed didn’t go to waste. As the redshirt sophomore attack ran away from the cage along the hash marks, he fed to the other pair of dashes, where Bomberry streaked toward the cage. He caught and shot the pass all at once for Syracuse’s first goal.Navy led for much of the first half, with Joe and Danny drawing a near stalemate at the faceoff X (SU entered the half leading 7-6 in draws). Syracuse rattled off three-straight goals to close the second frame out, one directly off a Danny faceoff win, and two more off assists from Rehfuss.In the second half, momentum swung, repeatedly. First, Navy recaptured a multi-goal lead with a sweep from Greyson Torain in which the junior midfielder ran from the left hash marks all the way through the right side of Syracuse’s defense before scoring on the run. Then, Ray picked up a shot off the back of the SU net and swung around the crease for a tuck-in finish.Then, everything went SU’s way. Rehfuss scored along the right-side wing from one knee on a sidearm shot. Solomon fed Curry from the X for a spot-shot goal. And a Rehfuss feed, which he admitted postgame was intended for Brendan Bomberry, found the stick of David Lipka for Syracuse’s first lead of the game.“It looked like the third quarter the tide turned,” Navy head coach Rick Sowell said. “They went ahead but we kept fighting back and then they’d go ahead, probably didn’t look great when we were down two but then we fought back to tie it, then they go up again, just back and forth.”With about a minute remaining in the game and the score back even, Tucker Dordevic rang along the left hash mark with a defender beside him. As Dordevic quickened his steps, the Navy defender struggled to keep pace. When Dordevic slammed both feet into the ground, initiating his roll dodge, the Navy defender continued past the SU midfielder. Out of the spin and with newfound separation, Dordevic cranked a low screamer past Navy’s goalkeeper for what would have been his second game-winning goal of the season.But after gaining possession on the ensuing faceoff, SU couldn’t hold onto the ball. Rehfuss was jumped down low and coughed up possession. Down at the other end, Ray had a step on his defender in the heart of the SU defense. He caught a feed from John Salcedo and scored with less than 10 seconds left. Then, Joe Varello beat his younger brother Danny, and eventually the Syracuse Orange.“I was just out there trying to put forth the best effort for my team and I looked at this as Navy versus Syracuse,” Joe said. “And then once that final whistle blew, he was back to being my brother again. But for the 60 minutes during the game, I tried to look at Danny as just No. 42 on Syracuse.” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

2020 GOP presidential hopeful says farmers ‘just can’t trust’ Trump

first_imgDES MOINES — A former Republican congressman and radio talk show host from Illinois who’s challenging President Trump’s bid for re-election says while party leaders continue to defend President Trump, rank-and-file Republicans are starting to move in a different direction. Joe Walsh has been making trips to Iowa this fall, arguing the GOP should dump Trump.“He lies virtually every time he opens his mouth,” Walsh says, “and he’s incapable of putting the nation’s interests above his own.”The Iowa Republican Party’s chairman this week used the word “bogus” to describe the impeachment inquiry into President Trump’s actions with Ukraine. Walsh says Trump’s actions are indefensible.“Look, I think Republican voters — as I’m out there in Iowa and New Hampshire and other states — get it,” Walsh says. “The President of the United States shouldn’t be telling a foreign government to dig up direct on his political opponent.”Walsh also points to this week’s Trump Administration announcement which does not implement the policy Trump promised biofuels producers as evidence Trump cannot be trusted.“He promised to do something about that. He didn’t. He hasn’t,” Walsh says. “And when you factor in that along with his trade war which has been an out-and-out economic war on Iowa farmers and farmers around the country, it’s clear that Iowa farmers just can’t trust and believe anything this president says.”Walsh, who voted for Trump in 2016, says he did so because Trump wasn’t Hillary Clinton.“I figured he was a goof and maybe Donald Trumpwould appoint a few good people and maybe a few good things might happen,” Walsh says.Walsh spoke with Radio Iowa by phone on Tuesday afternoon, offering as a closing argument that the reality of the Trump presidency shows Trump is unfit to be commander-in-chief.“I really do believe that deep down most Republican voters feel that way,” Walsh said. “We’ve just got to get them to come out and say that publicly.”Walsh served one term in the U.S. House, representing a district that included some of the Chicago suburbs.last_img read more

Record-breaker Hill hails strength of English golf

first_img Record-breaking Josh Hill has admitted his historic victory in a professional event aged just 15 could be the first of many success stories for English golf because of the growing strength in depth at amateur level.The England Boys’ squad member rewrote the record books with his victory in the Al Ain Open by Arena at Al Ain Equestrian Shooting and Golf Club in the United Arab Emirates on Wednesday.At the tender age of 15 years, six months and 27 days, the English teenager became the youngest ever winner of an Official World Golf Ranking event.Hill’s achievement trumps that of Japanese prodigy Ryo Ishikawa who was three months older when he set the previous record in 2007.His story has created headlines across the golfing world with superstars of the game lining up to acknowledge his feat.Six-times major winner Sir Nick Faldo hailed his victory as did former Master champion Danny Willett who described his closing round of 62 for a two-shot victory as ‘seriously impressive’Ryder Cup legend Ian Poulter has added his congratulations by calling Hill’s triumph ‘beyond impressive’ and adding ‘this is awesome.’Hill is flattered to receive so many mentions from players he admires and hopes one day to follow them to the top of the game.However, he’s also well aware that he is just one of a batch of young English players with the potential to go right to the summit of the sport if they keep working on their game.This week some of Hill’s England Boys’ squad colleagues were together at the National Performance Centre at Woodhall Spa to begin their preparations for the 2020 season.Hill will join up with them later in the year and he knows that while the headlines are his for the moment, there is so much strength in depth that the game in England that others are capable of emulating his breakthrough performance.“I got quite a few messages from my England team-mates,” admitted Hill as he tried to take in the enormity of his victory and the headlines his win had generated.“They were probably just a bit jealous that I was playing in the sunshine while they were in the rain at Woodhall Spa!“But seriously they were having fun as a team in England and they are a good group of boys.“The strength of the players coming through the England levels right now is amazing.“Although I live in Dubai I’m always immensely proud to represent England when I can and I’m always happy to wear that shirt with the England badge.“You can see that there are a lot of players emerging from the England Golf squads to make a name for themselves.“Another English player – Robin Williams – won before me on the MENA Tour. To shoot 16-under to win on a tough course in Jordan was some going from him.“You see the exploits of Conor Gough last season in the British Amateur and also Ben Schmidt who was winning just about everything he played in.“Max Hopkins too has been playing well and you are starting to see more and more English names at the top of leaderboards in boys’ and girls’ events.”Hill was born in Dubai and still lives and trains in the Emirate although he is fiercely proud to be the youngest member of the England Boys’ Under-18 squad.His world became a little crazy for a few hours on Wednesday night as word filtered through that he had re-written the record books with his two-shot victory over another Englishman, Harry Ellis.Hill added: “It’s not really sunk in yet.“How did I celebrate? I just got a KFC – nothing special. I didn’t get on wifi until I got home and then I realised that something unusual was going on.“I had around 120 WhatsApp notifications and 250 more on Instagram and I knew then that this was a bit different.“I felt in control of my game as the round progressed – to be honest I wasn’t sure how I was doing until I got to the 16th hole of my final round.“At that point people started appearing on buggies to watch and I knew then I was leading.“The drive at 16 is tough with a lot of water on the right but I hit my drive perfectly and took it from there.“My dad was in the galleries to watch too and that was special.“I still have two events on the MENA Tour and I want to make sure I play well in them. Then I can practise and chill over the winter ahead of next season“Ultimately I want to get a Tour card and make my way in the game.“Like any young golfer the dream is to win a Major, but that’s a long way away and I just have to keep working hard at my game.“Tiger Woods is my hero – I think everyone loves Tiger and watching him win the Masters again was inspiring.”Hill and his England team-mates are planning for key team events in 2020. These include the European Boys’ Team Championships in Uppsala, Sweden and the Boys’ Home Internationals which will be staged in August at Killarney Golf Club in Ireland.
