Opinion!

The Mayo Clinic, based in Rochester, Minnesota, is a well-known non-profit medical practice and research group, employing over four thousand physicians and over fifty thousand allied healthcare personnel. One of the premier institutions in the world of its kind, it attracts many patients who come to Mayo for a second opinion or the confirmation of a diagnosis made elsewhere of a complex condition. Sometimes other doctors send them to Mayo for a consult; at other times

Dirty!

You got mud on your jeans? Don’t wash it off. It might be worth a lot more now.

[No, I’m not kidding!]

Nordstrom sells them for $425 a pair! Shipped with the mud baked in.

Here’s Nordstrom’s description:

Heavily distressed medium-blue denim jeans in a comfortable straight-leg fit embody rugged, Americana workwear that’s seen some hard-working action with a crackled, caked-on muddy coating that shows you’re not afraid to get down and dirty.”

They’re

Pacers!

Last week, Kenyan Eliud Kipchoge came 25 seconds close to breaking a record. Running a marathon in less than two hours. Then guy ran 26.2 miles in 2:25:00 beating the record of 2:02:57 set by Dennis Kimetto (another Kenyan), as well as his own best of 2:03:05. Like Roger Bannister’s breaking the four-minute mile in 1954 (he did it in 3 minutes 59.4 seconds), this one by Kipchoge raises hopes that one of the sporting world’s most formidable (and famous) barriers may

Genesis 38:1−30

Genesis 38:1−30

Agents of God’s blessing are selflessly concerned about others and humbly aware of their own fallibility.

In Genesis 34, Simeon and Levi, because of their impetuosity and bloodthirstiness had disqualified themselves from leadership; in Genesis 35, Reuben—the mandrakes and incest guy—also had been disentitled. The next in line was Judah. And in Gen 37, it appeared that Judah’s brothers had begun to follow his lead over Reuben’s. It appears that in Gen 38 Judah

Genesis 37:1−36

Agents of God’s blessing to others can expect misunderstanding and mistreatment from them.

The pericope begins with Joseph bringing to his father an “evil report” regarding his siblings (37:2). While the use of dibbah elsewhere indicates “slander” or “evil report” that may not be necessarily true (Num 13:32; Ps 31:4), in light of Prov 25:10 that employs the word to indicate a true (but disparaging) report, there is no reason to think that the dibbah
