Leadership [Name of the writer] [Name of the institution] Abstract Th? first ?ssue which must be clarified ?n approach?ng th? subject of local ?hur?h government ?s th? question of authority. All agree that Chr?st ?s th? Head ?nd that He rules through H?s Word. But what about authority on th? level of ?ndividual ?hur?h function, teach?ng, ?nd dec?sion mak?ng? Does Chr?st delegate authority to ?nyone else? M?ny ?hur?h groups ?re sure that He does not, that each m?n h?s equal authority before God by virtue of h?s ?ndividual priesthood. Our Americ?n spirit of democracy ?n th? ?hur?h ?nd its "one m?n one vote" leaves us ?ncl?ned to agree, at le?st ?n sentiment. We feel that we ?re ?nswerable to God alone, ?nd so authority over ?nyone ?n th? very personal realm of th? spiritual ?nd religious ?s out of th? question. Our beliefs ?nd practices ?re matters between God ?nd us ?ndividually, we tend to th?nk; ?nd ?n th? affairs of th? local ?hur?h collectively, th? majority rules. But does Chr?st rule by majority vote? ?s H?s will determ?ned by popular consent? Or ?s it given once ?nd for all ?n Holy Scripture to be faithfully m?n?stered to H?s people by spiritual l?aders with?n th? ?hur?h? Th?se questions state th? ?ssue clearly. Th? New Testament ?s clear ?n its teach?ng both by precept ?nd example that th?re ?re certa?n men ?n th? ?hur?h who ?re ?nvested with th? responsibility of

INTRODUCERE Schimbarile profunde care au aparut în structura si activitatea sistemelor de plati si decontari au reflectat îndeaproape transformarea industriei financiare la nivel global. Schimbarile tehnologice, dereglementarea si tendinta catre o sporita volatilitate a preturilor activelor au contribuit la expansiunea activitatii financiare si totodata a volumului si valorii fluxurilor de plati la nivel national si international. Toate aceste schimbari sunt evidente mai ales în plan individual-al persoanelor fizice-, cel al economiei reale si al pietelor financiare. În acest context, poate fi amintita larga paleta de instrumente destinate a facilita executarea platilor de catre persoanele fizice: distribuitoarele automate de numerar, ghiseele bancare automate, utilizarea cardurilor bancare d debit si de credit, o mai buna remunerare a depozitelor bancare, precum si introducerea unor forme din ce în ce mai explicite de comisionare a serviciilor sau chiar oferta de servicii gratuite în domeniul transferurilor de bani. Daca toate acestea sunt usor de remarcat în marea majoritate a tarilor dezvoltate si sunt direct legate de transferurile de fonduri cu valoare relative scazuta, schimbarile cele mai spectaculoase care au avut loc pot fi gasite în zona transferurilor de fonduri banesti cu valoare mare si foarte mare, adesea associate fie cu activitatea marilor agenti
American History . The means and methods and reasons for the founding of the first English colonies - By the sixteenth century, many countries, including Spain, France and the Netherlands, had established colonies in the New World. Until the foundation of Jamestown, however, the English didn't have any successful permanent colonies in North America. - Prior to Jamestown, Sir Walter Raleigh of the Sea Dogs formed a joint stock company and received a charter to found a colony on Roanoke Island in 1584. It failed, and he tried again in 1585 and 1587. Both were failures, and the fate of the 1587 colony remains a mystery (all colonists disappeared). - Anyhow, several factors encouraged the English to try again with Jamestown even after their earlier failures, and motivated people to join the expeditions. These reasons include... "Overcrowding" - England had experienced a dramatic population boom,? resulting in social and economic upheaval (inflation, falling wages, peasants losing their land b/c of the enclosure movement, many homeless people, rapidly growing cities). Competition - The English government was concerned about losing ground in? the competition with the Spanish for overall power and with the Dutch for trading. Since they had colonies, it was only natural that England would want them as well. Religion - This applies more to the prospective colonists than to the?
Close your eyes As I finished packing my suitcase I felt a tear fall onto my hand. This was the last time I'd be here. The last time I'd see this house, this room. I didn't want to leave but I had to. I'd only found out last week. Mum came home and told me over dinner that we had to move to London because she'd got a job transfer. At first I refused to leave all this behind me but after a few days it seemed like I had no choice. I'd told all my friends and they were so sad to see me go. Especially Chloe. Me and her had been best friends since we were little. We never spent a moment apart, we basically lived at each others. What's mine was hers and what hers was mine. It had always been like that. Now we were being ripped apart. It felt like I was losing a sister. I told her that I'd call her everyday and that we could talk on MSN until we fell asleep at the computer. We laughed at the idea of me living in London, after all, I hated the place, but inside we were both crying. I sat on the floor and looked around my room. The walls were bare and the wallpaper had been torn where id pulled my posters down. My bed, wardrobe, mirror, shelves, TV and every single other thing in my room was sitting inside the removal van being taken to our new home. The only thing in the room was me, and my suitcase. "Louise!" I heard mum calling me from the stairs "Darling we have to leave.
Business Aims and Objectives Most businesses have aims and objectives about how they are going to make their business successful. Most businesses have different aims and objectives. For example a schools main aim will be getting as many students to a high educational standard. Some businesses may state official aims in a statement that is part of the business's policy. The mission statement of First Direct, the telephone banking arm of HSBC, is to `create harmony between the services it provides and the way people live their lives with simple, straightforward products`. Another example is BUPA, the private health care and insurance company, has a vision statement of `taking care of the lives in our hands. Aims An aim is a goal the business wants to achieve. For example to make a good profit, the business has aims to reach their goals such as expanding or improving their services or quality of goods. All businesses aim to provide goods and/or services, either to their local community or to the wider community. The main aim of every business is to survive. The only way it can do this is to make a profit. Its turnover, the goods or services it sells must be bigger than its operating expenses, or the day to day cost of running the business. These are some examples of aims of a business: * Making a profit * Being environmentally friendly * Improving product
Chapter 1 HOW IT ALL BEGAN Nearly four thousand years ago, in the Sumerian town of Ur in the valley of the river Euphrates, lived a young man named Abraham. The people of Ur had once worshipped Allah but as time passed they forgot the true religion and started praying to idols, statues made of wood or clay and sometimes even of precious stones. Even as a small child Abraham could not understand how his people, and especially his father, could make these images with their own hands, call them gods, and then worship them. He had always refused to join his people when they paid respect to these statues. Instead he would leave the town and sit alone, thinking about the heavens and the world about him. He was sure his people were doing wrong and so alone he searched for the right way. One clear night as he sat staring at the sky he saw a beautiful shining star, so beautiful that he cried out: 'This must be Allah!' He looked at it in awe for some time, until suddenly it began to fade and then it disappeared. He turned away in disappointment saying: I love not things that set. (Koran vi.77) On another night Abraham was again looking at the sky and he saw the rising moon, so big and bright that he felt he could almost touch it. He thought to himself: This is my Lord. (Koran vi.78) But it was not long before the moon set as well. Then he said, Unless my Lord guide me, I
