AN OLD INSURANCE company term for natural disasters is "acts of God," which unfortunately links the Holy One with everything awful and unforeseen that can befall humanity, as if God were not just capricious but wrathful and cruel.

Luke, Paul, Timothy and Silas are in the Roman colony of Philippi, in the province of Macedonia, where Paul founded a Christian community for which he has great affection. But a slave girl, whom the King James Bible describes as "possessed with a spirit of divination... which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying," follows the entourage, crying out, "These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation."
