  • Economy gains, but not enough to ease jobs crisis 


    WASHINGTON — The economy gained strength at the end of last year as Americans spent at the fastest pace in four years and U.S. companies sold more overseas.
    The growth is boosting hopes for a stronger 2011. But it remains too weak to ease high unemployment.
    The Commerce Department reported Friday that growth rose by an annual rate of 3.2 percent in the October-December quarter. That’s better than the 2.6 percent growth in the previous quarter. And it was the best quarterly showing since the start of last year.

    “A friend asked me if I spoke in tongues.  I have heard of this but am unaware of what it actually is and if it is something I should do.”
    — Mike

    The New Testament gives several accounts of people who, when “filled with the Spirit,” spoke in a language that was not their own. In one instance, this language (actually, languages spoken by several different people) were known languages recognized by others for whom the language was native. This is the well-known event at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-12).
