    While America is still reeling from the 2008 financial crisis, a high unemployment rate, and a surge in government debt, China's economy is the second largest in the world, and many predict it will surpass the United States' by 2020. President Obama called China's rise "a Sputnik moment" - will America seize this moment or continue to treat China as its scapegoat? Mainstream media and the U.S. government regularly target China as a threat. Rather than viewing China's power, influence, and contributions to the global economy in a negative light, Ann Lee asks, "What can America learn from its competition?"

    You often hear, "Happy Holidays", or "Merry Christmas", although many feel anything but happy or merry at this season - or at any season - due to loss in their lives. The Christmas or holiday season, when people gather with friends and family, accentuates the losses we feel. This is due to the absence or the longing to be with those who are not with us at this season. Whether it is a death, a divorce, a loss of a job, or a move that separates us from those we miss and love, the holidays can be joyous on the outside but agony inside. Some can pretend, while others just cannot.

    Misunderstood is the enlightening story of four biblical women who have historically been maligned by Bible scholars. Commentaries and study notes throughout the ages have condemned them for one reason or another. I hope you will take some time to think about giving grace to others instead of judging. Judging is the easiest and most natural thing we do when things don't look right to us. A holy God above us sees all. I would rather err on the side of grace than judgment.
