When managing rheumatoid arthritis, monitoring disease progression is a cornerstone of effective treatment. "You can't manage what you don't measure." Strategies and tools for assessing disease activity must therefore be included as part of a comprehensive treatment armamentarium. Clinicians are also challenged with application of guidelines that do not seem to "fit" specific, complex, clinical circumstances. In this CME Outfitters Webcast, expert faculty will review the 2010 ACR/EULAR algor ...

Amy Carmichael called it the "age-long minute," the period of time between when you pray, asking God to undertake, and the moment when His strong arm moves on your behalf. The "age-long minute!"

“Ever since our mother died, my sister won’t talk about it. It seems that she wants to just seal that part of her life off and pretend it didn’t happen,” confided a friend, wondering what he could do to help his sister.

Frustration is no stranger to the child of God. Believers live in a world of broken pieces, and buses that are late, and budgets which will not balance, just the same as the man who is an atheist. Let's go back to the source of much of our frustration--goals that are not reached, accomplishments that are not realized, and expectations that are ...…

When I was a teen my parents tried to encourage me to learn to be independent and to develop the handy skill of sewing. They told me that they would buy fabric for any piece of clothing I was willing to sew for myself. Other clothing would have to come out of what I made from my part-time job at a shop in the mall.…

"Dear Mr. Sala, I need help! I am 34 years old, and I have not accomplished or feel that I am accomplishing any of my goals. I attend college in the evenings. I have done very well in bringing up my grade standards, but I seem to come in contact with situations that I cannot control or have the faith to overcome. That is why I am writing. I am ...…

“I can’t love people in slices,” says King Arthur in Camelot, “I take the good with the bad.” Maybe that’s why King Arthur presided successfully over a vast array of knights and we seem to preside over the dissolution of relationships gone bad. Can we love people in slices, choosing what we like, rejecting what we dislike? There’s a problem wit ...…

Peter Sedore got a hole-in-one at the Panorama Village Golf Course where he often played. It wasn’t his first, either. Actually, it was his eighteenth career hole-in-one, something which golfers recognize isn’t an everyday occurrence by a long shot. Neither did Peter, age 83, realize it would be his last hole-in-one, either. One hole later, he ...…

“Are the Bible’s Stories True?” asks a Time magazine article. “Was Abraham a myth? Did the Exodus happen? Did Joshua conquer the city of Jericho? Was there a Moses?” ask segments of the article.

“I’m an atheist; I don’t need any religion to help me,” were the words of a young pilot as he brushed off the chaplain’s invitation to attend chapel. The chaplain, however, held more than a half-dozen degrees including several from Oxford. Not to be turned aside so easily, J. Edwin Orr asked, “Could I ask you a couple of questions?” Thinking th ...…

When the Swiss Air flight went down off the coast of Newfoundland, the black box on the plane indicated that sixteen minutes elapsed from the time the pilot first recognized the plane was in trouble until the fatal crash. Sixteen minutes—one minute more than a quarter of an hour. Sixteen minutes to make peace with God.…

A certain pastor was spending far too much time with a staff member in his church, and the man was honest enough to admit that he was attracted to her and considering leaving his wife and family for the other woman.

It’s an old story but one worth repeating. A young man who is being promoted goes in to talk to the CEO, who has been with the company for many years. “What is the secret of your success?” he asks the old gentleman, who replies, “Making good decisions.” “Yes,” answers the young man, “but how did you learn to do this?” This time his answer was o ...…

An old legend tells of a farmer who had a beautiful daughter who was courted by a variety of young men, all wanting to marry her. So the farmer promised the hand of his daughter in marriage to the young man who could walk through his field of corn, never backtracking, and select the largest, most perfect ear of corn in the entire field. And did ...…
 
A college professor was striving to motivate his students to make quick evaluations followed by good decisions. To illustrate a point, he calls on a student who drove a truck in his spare time and asked him to respond to this situation. “You are a truck driver with a fully loaded semi-truck coming down a steep decline. On your right is a 500-fo ...…
 
"Hope," said Thales, the Greek founder of philosophy, "is the most universal thing in the world, for hope stays with those who have nothing else." Many today are in the grip of despair and pessimism because they have ruled out the very grounds of hope itself, which is God. The believer's hope centers in a person, Jesus Christ, who gave to us a ...…
 
It happens every day in every major city of the world. A car is proceeding down the highway when another vehicle pulls directly into its path. There is the screech of tires as brakes are jammed on, but it is too late. The sickening thud is followed by the tearing of metal and the shattering of glass, punctuated with the screams of suffering. A ...…
 
“Courage," said, Dorothy Bernard, "is fear that has said its prayers." In my file is an anonymous quote where somebody wrote, "It takes more courage to be faithful in routine things than to risk one's life in a moment of spectacular danger." Do you believe that? Yes, it is one thing to dash into a burning building to snatch a child from the jaw ...…
 
The Russian writer and historian, Alexandr Solzhenitsyn, believed that one of the clearest indications of spiritual and moral decadence is a lack of courage, in personal lives and in government. Decades ago, the Nobel laureate said, "A decline in courage may be the most striking feature which an outside observer notices in the West in our days. ...…
 
The late humorist Erma Bombeck joked about the mother who tried to get away from her family by hiding in the clothes closet, only to hear the dog whining on the other side of the door. Sometimes you just can't win.
 
It’s amazing what parents will do to see growth in their children. When a parent suddenly realizes that his or her child is significantly shorter than all the others in a given group, most parents start booking appointments with doctors and embark on a regimen of nutrition or medication. They don’t want their youngster to be a “small fry!”…
 
Rick Warren, a pastor who speaks to some 12,000 people every week, says that the question which people ask more than any other is, “Why did this happen to me?” Has that question ever come from your heart? A phone call in the night brought news that your best friend had been injured in an automobile accident. You were laid off at work, replaced ...…
 
Living faster than ever before and enjoying it less? Millions of people are like that, living in a pressure cooker environment, packing more and more into less and less time, but liking it less every day. Whatever makes life worth living–the leisure walk through the woods, the time to sit and play with your baby, a candlelight meal with your hu ...…
 
How you speak two words tells a great deal about your outlook on life‑‑two very important words that are often spoken at the beginning of the day. Those two very revealing words are, "ANOTHER DAY." Think for a moment. When you awake in the morning and say, "Another day...," how do you say it? The inflection of your voice reveals a lot about you ...…
 
Do you remember when your friend made a bad choice, a wrong decision like walking out of a marriage, or quitting a job over a petty disagreement, or allowing a disagreement to break a long-time friendship? And you said, "That person isn't thinking straight!" Straight thinking cuts to the core of the issue and puts the whole in perspective. It g ...…
 
Have you ever had the experience of waking up in the morning and asking yourself, "How have I gotten to this place? What has happened to me? Where did I go wrong?" The realization that you were in the wrong place under the wrong set of circumstances hit you like a ton of bricks. You suddenly realized that you had missed the right turn a few mil ...…
 
It's a fact: Only ten percent of all people really think. Seventy-five percent think they think, and fifteen percent would rather die than think. Do you believe that? I often close a program with the phrase, "Think about it!" Yet, quite often, we prefer not to think because when we really do think about something, we are confronted with the con ...…
 
The human brain is an amazing creation. It has spawned the marvelous inventions of space and plummeted the depths of the biological kingdom. It has given birth to the space program, the marvelous advancements of medicine, the libraries of the world, the advancements of civilization, the remarkable achievements in the fields of science, history, ...…
 
Some 3000 years ago the wise man—perhaps Solomon himself—said it so well: “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” Simply put, you become what you think—negative or positive. Your thinking shapes your attitude, and your attitude is like the wood carver’s tool that molds you into the image you become.…
 
"How could God really love me if He let this happen to me?" If you have never said it, chances are you have thought it‑‑at least for a fleeting moment, and perhaps that thought took root in your mind and the logic has become a real problem. In coping with the problem of circumstances which run counter to your belief in a good God who loves you, ...…
 
Afflictions come to us in all sizes and shapes. I am thinking of two individuals in particular‑‑one of whom sustained brain damage in a sports injury and then faced a life‑long physical impairment, and another who has grown bitter over the loss of a baby girl found dead in her crib. Both of them talk of God's love. The first speaks of it as a c ...…
 
Have you ever doubted God's love? Have you ever faced circumstances that caused you to say, "How could God love me when He has allowed circumstances as these?" It may have been the death of your child, or a mate who deeply disappointed you, or something about which you prayed, and your prayer went unanswered—or so you thought. Possibly you did ...…
 
Have you discovered that when someone says, "God told me to do something," we think that either we are confronted with a deeply spiritual individual or someone who needs a psychiatrist? Yet some who think they are constantly hearing the voice of God are not in need of mental health care, but they do need help--they confuse the voice of God with ...…
 
Have you ever had the experience of being somewhere away from the noise of a big city? Perhaps on a mountain somewhere, on a desert, and as you set and looked up at a starry sky, you were absolutely amazed at the silence. It was quiet, right? Not exactly. It wasn't quiet, it was simply that you couldn't hear the sounds. Strange but true is the ...…
