    Passion 2013, a Christian conference that reaches out to students and young adults, reportedly attracted more than 60,000 people to the Georgia Dome this week. This year’s conference will be the largest single Passion gathering in North America since the Passion movement began, according to ChristianPost.com. Christian speakers including John Piper, Beth Moore, Francis Chan, Judah Smith, and Gary Haugen will be present and Christian entertainers scheduled to perform include Chris Tomlin, Matt Redman, Christy Nockels, Kristian Stanfill, Charlie Hall, David Crowder, Lecrae and Jesus Culture. Organizer Louie Giglio, who will also speak at the event, says Passion is meant to be a symbol of a new generation that is discovering religion and turning to God.


    Protect Your Assets in Case of a Lawsuit

    Litigation is America’s fastest growing business because plaintiffs have everything to gain and nothing but a few hours’ time to lose, says Hillel Presser, author of “Financial Self-Defense.” “Even if a case seems utterly ridiculous — like the man who struck and killed a teenager with his luxury car and then sued the boy’s family for damage to his bumper — defendants are encouraged to settle. It’s sometimes the only way to avoid potentially astronomical legal fees,” he says. If you haven’t already taken steps to protect your assets, that’s one New Year’s resolution you’ll be glad you made and followed up on, Presser says. And while it helps to have the assistance of a lawyer who specializes in asset protection, there are many things you can do yourself.
