Religion, Faith Still Important to Most People
Christian Post - "A global survey looked at the views of over 18,000 people across 24 countries, including the U.K. and U.S. Seven in 10 of those surveyed said they had a religion but there was a marked difference between Christians and Muslims when it came to the importance they placed on their faith.
In Muslim-majority countries, 94 percent of those with a religion agreed that their faith was important in their lives, compared to 66 percent in Christian-majority countries

Selling God
Sunday Star (New Zealand) - "Bringing in the sheaves: Young believers packed Auckland's Vector Arena to hear US pastor Greg Laurie, above, invite them to repent. Chartered buses delivered the congregation from 200 churches to the Harvest Church event"

Do Leaders Need to Be Holy?
Kingdom people - "And yet of all the resources available on leadership today (there are currently almost 350,000 available at amazon.com) I do find the issue of personal holiness missing from most discussions on leadership, even among those who serve in ministry. There are plenty of books and articles about rules or laws of leadership, keys to leading an effective team, how to be not simply good but great, and how to use your gifts to their maximum potential. But there appears to be few people discussing the vital issue of personal holiness in the life of a leader."

Refurbished Palais de la Femme Reopened in Paris, France
TSA - "One of The Salvation Army's best-known buildings has reopened after significant refurbishment. The centre, which provides accommodation to women in need and their children, was reopened by Colonel Massimo Paone and Jean-Paul Huchon, President of l'Île-de-France."
