Is A Shepherd Without A Flock Still A Shepherd?

- You can always tell when it is Easter in Wellington. Easter eggs, bunnies and buns fill the shops and local theologian James Veitch pisses off evangelical Christians with an article in The Evening Post questioning fundamental elements of the Christian faith. This year is no different – except Veitch’s article is in this weeks Listener, headed Is God still dead? He can now piss off a national audience. See... Big News: Arguing Whether God is Still Dead [1]

Howard’s End: US Spyplane Had Options, Why Did It Touch Down In China?

- If there's one thing that is fast becoming evident from the standoff between China and the U.S. over the spy plane incident, it's that diplomats and strategists in the West have little understanding of China's ancient culture.
