Khloe Kardashian seems to be leaning on scriptures from the Holy Bible while dealing with her pending divorce from Lamar Odom.

North Miami Beach police are investigating the death of a man who reportedly stepped in to break up a brawl at a pre-baptism party in Miami Beach, Fla.
"It was so chaotic that once the police arrived, there were people running everywhere," Thomas Carney, North Miami Beach director of Police Services, told The Christian Post in an interview on Wednesday. Carney said an argument about utensils at the Saturday night pre-baptism party escalated into a fight. When 21-year-old Wilson Alexis stepped in to intervene, two shots were fired and he died in the hospital.
Jameson Joseph, whose godson was supposed to be baptized on Sunday, hosted the party and posted a notice on the social networking site TAGGED. The notice reportedly attracted a much larger crowd than he was expecting, and Carney said that once neighbors saw the big party, they also came out to join it. "They planned to feed the number of guests they invited and that was it," Carney explained. "Once you see between 80 and 100 people that weren't invited, you start running out of things." more >>

Media consultant Phil Cooke recently listed five principles for leaders to effectively communicate the Gospel in today's high-tech social world, including the premise that expression of "Christian lingo" should be dropped.
"Forget Christian 'lingo,'" writes Cooke in his recent blog, Five Commandments for Becoming a Media Savvy Pastor. "Christian media is so filled with it's own 'lingo,' that most of the people we're trying to reach can't even understand us. But when I read the New Testament, Jesus spoke in a language and style people understood. Why have we lost that ability? Why have we created an entire vocabulary of words and phrases that only church members can understand?"
Cooke, who has produced and directed film and television programming in more than 50 countries and authored the book, Unique: Telling Your Story in the Age of Brands and Social Media, says he has helped some of the largest churches and ministries in the country create effective, high quality media outreaches. more >>
