Vitamin D status in different subgroups of British Asians. (1/756)

To assess the effect of religious dietary practices and social customs on the vitamin D status of Asian immigrants, we kept records of the dietary intake and time spent out of doors of 81 Ugandan Asian men, women, and girls (9-19 years old). Sera were analysed for 25-hydroxycholecalciferol (25-OHD3), and 28% of the subjects were found to have levels below the lower limit of normal. The (vegetarian) Hindus had the lowest dietary intakes, least time out of doors, and lowest serum 25-OHD3. The Goan (Roman Catholic) Asians, despite more pigmentation, had 25-OHD3 levels similar to those found among indigenous British people and had the most satisfactory vitamin D intakes. Among Asians, whose exposure to sunlight may be limited, dietary vitamin D becomes the major determinant of serum 25-OHD3.  (+info)

How patients perceive the role of hospital chaplains: a preliminary exploration. (2/756)

OBJECTIVE: An exploratory study of the attitudes of hospital patients to the service provided by hospital chaplains. DESIGN: Questionnaire study of hospital inpatients in December 1992. SETTING: One large teaching hospital in London. PATIENTS: 180 hospital inpatients in 14 different general wards, 168 (93%) of whom agreed to take part. MAIN MEASURES: Attitudes to chaplains and their role contained in 12 questions developed during a pilot study on hospital inpatients (16) and staff (14) and their relation to patients' age, sex, length of hospital stay, and religious beliefs, according to Kendall rank order correlations. RESULTS: Of 168(93%) respondents, 72(43%) were women; mean age of patients was 63.1 (SD 16.8) years. Forty five (27%) were inpatients of three days or less and 22(13%) for one month or more. 136(81%) were Christian; 17(10%) atheist, agnostic, or had no religion; and 15(9%) were of other religions. In general, patients showed positive attitudes towards the role of hospital chaplains and to the services they provided. The correlation analysis showed that there was a significant tendency for older patients, those who had been inpatients for longer, and those with religious beliefs to be more sympathetic to the role of hospital chaplains. CONCLUSIONS: Hospital chaplains provide a service which is appreciated by patients. This study provides a simple instrument for assessing patients' attitudes to chaplains.  (+info)

Changes at the high end of risk in cigarette smoking among US high school seniors, 1976-1995. (3/756)

OBJECTIVES: This study identified high school seniors at low, moderate and high risk for cigarette use to examine changes in the prevalence of daily smoking within risk groups from 1976 to 1995. METHODS: Data were taken from the Monitoring the Future Projects national surveys of high school seniors. Risk classification was based on grade point average, truancy, nights out per week, and religious commitment. Logistic regression models were used to estimate trends for all seniors and separately for White (n = 244,221), African American (n = 41,005), and Hispanic (n = 18,457) made and female subgroups. RESULTS: Risk group distribution (low = 45%, moderate = 30%, high = 25%) changed little over time. Between 1976 and 1990, greater absolute declines in smoking occurred among high-risk students (17 percentage points) than among low-risk students (6 percentage points). Particularly large declines occurred among high-risk African Americans and Hispanics. Smoking increased in all risk groups in the 1990s. CONCLUSIONS: Among high school seniors, a large part of the overall change in smoking occurred among high-risk youth. Policies and programs to reduce smoking among youth must have broad appeal, especially to those at the higher end of the risk spectrum.  (+info)

Fruit and vegetable consumption and prevention of cancer: the Black Churches United for Better Health project. (4/756)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed the effects of the Black Churches United for Better Health project on increasing fruit and vegetable consumption among rural African American church members in North Carolina. METHODS: Ten counties comprising 50 churches were pair matched and randomly assigned to either intervention or delayed intervention (no program until after the follow-up survey) conditions. A multicomponent intervention was conducted over approximately 20 months. A total of 2519 adults (77.3% response rate) completed both the baseline and 2-year follow-up interviews. RESULTS: The 2 study groups consumed similar amounts of fruits and vegetables at baseline. AT the 2-year follow-up, the intervention group consumed 0.85 (SE = 0.12) servings more than the delayed intervention group (P < .0001). The largest increases were observed among people 66 years or older (1 serving), those with education beyond high school (0.92 servings), those widowed or divorced (0.96 servings), and those attending church frequently (1.3 servings). The last improvement occurred among those aged 18 to 37 years and those who were single. CONCLUSIONS: The project was a successful model for achieving dietary change among rural African Americans.  (+info)

Association between illegal drugs and weapon carrying in young people in Scotland: schools' survey. (5/756)

OBJECTIVES: To identify the type and extent of weapons being carried among young people in Scotland, and to determine the relation between use of illegal drugs and weapon carrying. DESIGN: Questionnaire school survey. SETTING: Independent schools in central Scotland and schools in Lanarkshire and Perth and Kinross. PARTICIPANTS: 3121 students aged 11 to 16 in 20 schools. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Self completion questionnaire reporting history of drug use and weapon carrying. RESULTS: Overall, 34.1% of males and 8. 6% of females reported having carried a weapon (P<0.0001), ranging from 29.2% of boys aged 11-13 (classes S1 to S2) to 39.3% of boys aged 13-15 (S3 to S4). These values are higher than those in a recent survey of young people in England. Weapon carrying in Lanarkshire was 70% higher for males than in the rural area of Perth and Kinross. Both males and females who had taken drugs were more likely to carry weapons (63.5% of male drug users versus 20.5% of non-users and 22.8% of female drug users versus 3.7% of non-users; both P<0.0001). The proportions of males carrying weapons who used none, one, two, three or four, or five or more illegal drugs were 21%, 52%, 68%, 74%, and 92% respectively. A similar trend was found among females. CONCLUSIONS: Better information is needed on the nature and extent of weapon carrying by young people in the United Kingdom, and better educational campaigns are needed warning of the dangers of carrying weapons.  (+info)

Death--whose decision? Euthanasia and the terminally ill. (6/756)

In Australia and Oregon, USA, legislation to permit statutory sanctioned physician-assisted dying was enacted. However, opponents, many of whom held strong religious views, were successful with repeal in Australia. Similar opposition in Oregon was formidable, but ultimately lost in a 60-40% vote reaffirming physician-assisted dying. This paper examines the human dilemma which arises when technological advances in end-of-life medicine conflict with traditional and religious sanctity-of-life values. Society places high value on personal autonomy, particularly in the United States. We compare the potential for inherent contradictions and arbitrary decisions where patient autonomy is either permitted or forbidden. The broader implications for human experience resulting from new legislation in both Australia and Oregon are discussed. We conclude that allowing autonomy for the terminally ill, within circumscribed options, results in fewer ethical contradictions and greater preservation of dignity.  (+info)

Diabetes in the Old Order Amish: characterization and heritability analysis of the Amish Family Diabetes Study. (7/756)

OBJECTIVE: The Old Order Amish (OOA) are a genetically well-defined closed Caucasian founder population. The Amish Family Diabetes Study was initiated to identify susceptibility genes for type 2 diabetes. This article describes the genetic epidemiology of type 2 diabetes and related traits in this unique population. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: The study cohort comprised Amish probands with diabetes who were diagnosed between 35 and 65 years of age and their extended adult family members. We recruited 953 adults who represented 45 multigenerational families. Phenotypic characterization included anthropometry, blood pressure, diabetes status, lipid profile, and leptin levels. RESULTS: The mean age of study participants was 46 years, and the mean BMI was 26.9 kg/m2. Subjects with type 2 diabetes were older, more obese, and had higher insulin levels. The prevalence of diabetes in the OOA was approximately half that of the Caucasian individuals who participated in the Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (95% CI 0.23-0.84). The prevalence of diabetes in the siblings of the diabetic probands was 26.5% compared with a prevalence of 7.0% in spouses (lambdaS = 3.28, 95% CI 1.58-6.80). The heritability of diabetes-related quantitative traits was substantial (13-70% for obesity-related traits, 10-42% for glucose levels, and 11-24% for insulin levels during the oral glucose tolerance test; P = 0.01 to <0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: Type 2 diabetes in the Amish has similar phenotypic features to that of the overall Caucasian population, although the prevalence in the Amish community is lower than that of the Caucasian population. There is significant familial clustering of type 2 diabetes and related traits. This unique family collection will be an excellent resource for investigating the genetic underpinnings of type 2 diabetes.  (+info)

Do doctors pay attention to the religious beliefs of their patients? A survey amongst Dutch GPs. (8/756)

BACKGROUND: Patients' religious beliefs can offer support at times of illness and disease. Therefore religious beliefs of patients are important in doctor-patient interaction. OBJECTIVE: To assess to what extent GPs pay attention to religious beliefs of patients in their daily work. METHODS: A postal questionnaire was sent to 120 GPs. The questionnaire consisted of five clusters of items with precoded Likert-scale answer categories related to several clinical situations. RESULTS: Response rate was 72% (n = 87). Upon registration in the practice, 16% of the GPs paid attention to the religious beliefs of patients, while in situations concerning end-of-life decisions like terminal illness or requests for euthanasia most GPs pay attention to religious beliefs of patients (79%). In general GPs brought up in Protestant families tend to pay more attention to religious beliefs of patients than GPs with a Catholic background (65% vs 36%; 95% CI 5-51) and Protestant GPs pay more attention to these aspects than Catholic GPs (81% vs 47%; 95% CI 5-63). CONCLUSIONS: Most GPs tend to pay attention to religion when their medical possibilities in patient care come to an end. GPs and trainees might be conscious of these aspects in patient management. Since most GPs are familiar just with Western religions, the increasing number of non-Western religious denominations might have consequences for patient care in general practitioners' work.  (+info)

Cooperation An effective worship leader realizes that he is an extended hand of the pastor and that the pastor is actually the worship leader. The worship leader must never assume that he is more in touch with the action of the Holy Spirit than the pastor is. God has placed the pastor in responsibility and the worship leader must never subvert that position. The worship leader must never feel that worship is incomplete if the pastor signals a time to end. To oppose the pastors discernment is an arrogance that can only destroy the worship leaders effectiveness. Occasionally, I see worship leaders who feel they are in charge of the theology of the church and attempt to bring in their own set of teachings through their worship. Sometimes they succeed in supplanting church theology because they are popular and effective. When they do this, they have sacrificed their servanthood and sewn the seeds of division. Invisibility The best leader will try to become invisible as quickly as possible. He ...
Body worship is any practice of physically revering a part of another persons body, and is usually done as a submissive act in the context of BDSM. Typical kinds of body worship include worship of muscles, the penis, the vagina, or the buttocks. Usually accompanied by prostration, re-enforcing a sense of inferiority, a sub generally licks, kisses and sucks their dominants body part, and is not allowed to touch it in a more conventional way. This brings aspect of erotic humiliation to submissive partner. Worshipping a body can also be done because the worshipper is in awe of the body part and wishes to praise that beauty. Although encouragement may be provided, verbally or by spanking, body worship is typically received more or less passively, the worshipped party aloof. Facesitting and smothering are forms of body worship which differ chiefly because of their aggressive approach. Body worship is a common theme in the work of Japanese fetish artist Namio Harukawa. Penis worship generally ...
When the humans become part of Dea, he gains all of their knowledge. This means that he knows what drives them to worship him, so he can remake the world in a way that makes them more eager to worship him next time around. He draws power from multiple worlds across the universe/parallel dimensions and can survive without the worship of one of such worlds.. Dea needs this small amount of additional power because he competes with other beings in an eternal game to control the rest and their spheres of worship in the multiverse. Only a certain amount of these spheres can exist because power gained through worship increases with the intelligence of the beings worshiping. If two worlds of these intelligent beings are too close to each other, they will figure out about each other, and therefore might be able to figure out the presence of the Creators when another world gets destroyed, and stop worshiping the creator. The beings could also become Creators by gathering the worship of another world that ...

It is an interesting truth: we become what we worship. That is to say, we emulate-or become like-the people (and things) we most admire. To understand this concept, we have to understand the origins of the word worship. The word worship comes from the Old English worðscip or wurðscip -or worthship-meaning condition of being worthy, dignity, glory, distinction, honor, renown. To worship…
Sri Eklingji in Sanctum. Sri Eklingji, also known as Eknatha, is a beautiful black marble lingam that is said to lengthen to a height of 50 feet tall. We are not sure exactly what lengthen means in this regard. The shikharor tower over the sanctum is also 50 feet high, with a 60 foot circumference.. Eklingajis four faces embody Lord Brahma in the west, Lord Visnu in the north, Maheshwar in the South, and Surya in the east. In later segments of this series we will explore the introduction of Surya and Somaskanda worship in South India, which gradually replaced Brahma worship. Here we see an early example of that trend far to the north, in Rajasthan, where worship of Lord Brahma gave way to Shiva worship.. The flat top of Sri Eklingji is covered with a yantra representing the ultimate reality, Parabhrama, and a silver Naga winds around the lingam. The lingams top is considered by some to be a fifth face, embodying Sadashiva and his consort.. Lord Shivas family also reside here at Eklingji ...

Ive often said that from creation to consummation, people have had problems with proper worship. The first sins were ones of false worship, and so will the last be.. The same is true for the first murder. Cains brutal slaying of his brother stemmed from his anger over his offering of worship not being acceptable to God (Gen. 4:5). In the text we are simply told that God had no regard for Cain and his offering. So what, exactly, was Cains problem?. Ive heard much speculation about why God rejected Cains offering, and indeed, speculate we must since the text is not clear as to the problem. However, I think a few clues in Genesis 4, as well as some additional commentary by NT authors, sheds some light on Cains sin.. First, in Genesis 4:5 Moses records that God had no regard with respect to two things: (1) Cain and (2) his offering. Already this should clue us in to a two-fold problem; something was wrong with both Cain personally and the offering itself.. Now, we have no revelation ...

by Konrad La Prade. I desire then that in every place the men should pray, lifting holy hands without anger or quarreling. (1 Timothy 2:8). A little over a year ago, a group of guys was sitting around a campfire in my backyard. One of the conversations that came up was our posture as we worship Jesus in song. On Sunday morning, my arms are almost continually raised as I ponder the glory of Christ. Since that conversation, Ive thought about my own story and how my posture in worship is connected to it as well as what the Bible has to say about raising holy hands in worship.. At the age of 9, my family converted to Mormonism, and I discovered church music for the first time. While the Mormon hymnal has many familiar Christian hymns in it, my particular experience was that we sang the same 5-20 songs over and over again. These songs had to do with the prophet, putting my shoulder to the wheel, and being faithful to the doctrines of the church. ...

Description: Gerald Borchert provides a unique survey of the New Testament by centering on its understanding, teaching, language, and reflections of worship. He seeks to show how worship language and action lie behind much of the New Testament and how the modern church can gain a new power in worship through renewed reflection on the New Testament. Borchert first looks at the larger New Testament unit gospels, Pauline letters, pastorals, etc. Then he takes each book in the section passage by passage and shows how worship constantly enters into the author s style and purpose in bringing that author s unique meaning to the indivdual context. He concludes each section with a terse Worship Summary of the biblical book and with questions for the reader to contemplate. Thus Borchert invites the reader to enter into the worship discussion and find ways to give depth, meaning, and hope to personal and congregational worship. At each step, Borchert underlines the deep connection between worship and ...

TLC Correspondent. Duplicating efforts might not be the most efficient form of worship, but its enabling Episcopalians and Roman Catholics in one Virginia community to sustain a rare, decades-long ecumenical experiment.. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Richmond has accepted a proposal for administering sacraments separately during shared worship services at Church of the Holy Apostles in Virginia Beach. The churchs eucharistic forms needed to be more separate and distinct, Roman Catholic authorities said last year. Now they will be.. A new protocol requires that a Roman Catholic priest will pray parts of the liturgy every week. Every other week, on Episcopal Sundays, an Episcopal priest will pray the same portions.. For worshipers, this means services on Episcopal Sundays will run about 20 minutes longer. They will hear the same Scripture passages read twice, two homilies, and two sets of Eucharistic prayers. Then they will receive Communion separately and reunite for the Great ...

Melinda Jones Ault Ph.D., a professor at University of Kentucky, looked around her own place of worship and wondered where the people with disabilities were. A longtime special educator, she said, I knew they were out there. So she began studying the experiences of parents who have a child with a disability, including autism.. Her research team found that a third of the 416 parents surveyed had changed their place of worship due to a lack of inclusion or welcome, and 46 percent refrained from participating in an activity because their child was not included or welcomed.6, 7. Those numbers were surprising to me, but even more surprising was the passion with which parents described their experiences, Dr. Ault said. Many parents had positive stories to tell, but others had incredibly sad stories to tell of discrimination and negative attitudes. However all spoke about the experiences with passion. They either described many stories of acceptance and love or were affected negatively when a ...

We get to decide whether we worship at all (per the establishment clause), and if so, who we worship, where we worship, when we worship and how we worship (free exercise). We get to choose how we express our religion and honor our faith (free speech). Walk down any street in America, and youll see expressions of religion worn on our bodies, whether it be a cross pendant or a burqa. Walk into any home, and you may see a crucifix, the Star of David or nothing at all ...
Sixty-eight New York City churches that were evicted from public schools February 12 only missed one Sunday of worship in those schools before U.S. Chief District Judge Loretta A. Preska issued an injunction against the citys Board of Education, saying that losing ones right to exercise freely and fully his or her religious beliefs is a greater threat to our democratic society than a misperceived violation of the Establishment Clause.. A law is not neutral if its object is to infringe upon or restrict practices because of their religious motivation, Preska wrote in the ruling that was issued Friday afternoon. The policy also is not neutral because it discriminates between those religions that fit the ordained model of formal religious worship services and those religions whose worship practices are far less structured.. For example, she said under the current policy, a Catholic or Episcopal service could not meet for worship in a New York City public school, but a Quaker meeting or ...
Two weeks ago we decided to visit a different church for an evening service that was contemporary and contemplative. I was looking forward to a contemporary service and I knew the pastor was a good preacher. What we had, however, was 50 minutes of a total of three songs and one verse which lasted 25 minutes. Now I recognize that we all worship in different ways and each of us at different times worship in different ways so I sought to take this time to be in prayer and meditation, as intended by the worship leaders. Our 12-year-old daughter and six-year-old son, however, could be forgiven for becoming a bit impatient with the service. As it was, they were not and were very well behaved and our daughter paid quite a bit of attention to the worship and the sermon. The problem is, she has a bit too much of her fathers sarcasm in her.. At one point the worship leader began to improvise on the words singing over and over again God of breakthroughs. I had my head bowed and my shoulders began to ...
After a little while of being stubborn and song-hating, I had the realisation that the songs we sing in worship arent for me. Theyre not for you either, or anyone else in my church, your church, or the world. The songs are for God, and he doesnt care what they sound like, or if I dont like the song, he cares about the heart that the worship is coming from. I dont sing worship songs for my enjoyment (although I do enjoy it anyway) or to feel close to God (although sometimes I do that too) but I sing worship songs to do just that, worship God. It is for him, for me to tell him that I love him, to thank him, to praise him, to cry out to him ...

Thursday, April 2, 1:00 - 3:00 pm Almost overnight, we find ourselves in a new, unfamiliar world. The COVID-19 virus has changed everything about our lives, including how we worship. What is the church to do in such a time as this? With the social distancing practices preventing our physical gatherings, how do we connect and make our message resonate with a world in chaos? Now more than ever, the church has the opportunity to lead the charge in a world looking for spiritual answers. In order to lead effectively, we have to tell the story in a new way, for a new time and with a new medium.. In the same way a book has to be consolidated and adapted for the screen in movie form, so must the worship we offer virtually. We cant continue with a business-as-usual approach where Sunday morning worship is concerned. Join author, creative worship and guest readiness coach Jason Moore for a 90-minute webinar for how to face these unique challenges to worship. Jason will lead your church into a deep dive ...
Washington, D.C. - Are you more likely to use words like happy and family in your social media posts? Or do you use emotional and cognitive words like angry and thinking? The words you use may be a clue to your religious affiliation. A study of 12,815 U.S. and U.K. Facebook users finds use of positive emotion and social words is associated with religious affiliation whereas use of negative emotion and cognitive processes is more common for those who are not religious than those who are religious.. The work replicates Ritter et al.s 2013 results on religious and nonreligious language use on Twitter and appears in the journal Social Psychological and Personality Science. Researchers from the U.S., U.K., and Australia conducted the work.. Just as Ritter and colleagues discovered in 2013, We also found that positive emotion and social words are associated with religious affiliation whereas negative emotion and cognitive processes are more associated with non-religious affiliation, says ...
And now we come to the gospel of Mark in our worship, this morning. Our worship is always richer and better when it is informed by the glorious revelation of God in Scripture. The most important part of our worship is our understanding that informs our praise. And so, as a part of worship service, we always turn to the Word of God. We may have more to praise t he Lord for as we offer Him our worship.. Were in Mark chapter 1 and our text this morning is verses 9 through 11. Because this is such a monumental event, we have to take it in one lesson. Id like to cover more verses but not on this occasion because these three are so significant.. Mark 1:9 through 11, In those days, Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him, and a voice came out of the heavens, You are My beloved Son, in You I am well pleased.. In the first verse, you will remember ...

Worship Space Acoustics is a unique guide to the design, construction, and use of religious facilities for optimum acoustics. The book is divided into two parts: Part I discusses methods and techniques of room optimization, including how the acoustics of large and small spaces are designed, implemented, and adjusted; how acoustical privacy is attained; noise and its control; sound reinforcement; and numerical and physical modeling techniques. Part II provides the architect, student, and lay person a review of the characteristics of the religious services pertinent to various beliefs and how these are provided for in the acoustic design of spaces in churches, mosques, and synagogues.
Back of the Book Hindus can proudly claim to be the descendants of a race that believes in idol worship, in worshipping stones, animals, birds and reptiles. We visit temples with the weirdest and most bizarre sthala puranas, and are not ashamed of it. We are not ashamed of our Naga sadhus either, for they are just another manifestation of the freedom of thought and action that this land is famous for. All this and more represents the inclusiveness of what is popularly known as Hinduism, but which in reality is Sanatana Dharma, the eternal path. Introduction Templeck to 80,000 years. In any case, Rudra, the fierce form of Lord Shiva, is mentioned in the Vedas, which predate the Puranas by a long way. However, our brief here is not worship can be said to be as old as the hills. Well, not nearly. The hills came first and the temples later. Worship through the medium of stones was the origin, doubtless. Organised worship, in the form of temples, followed in due course. Even the sthala puranas of
Crowds also have thinned at Bangkoks popular Wat Pho, a centuries-old Buddhist temple complex known for its giant reclining Buddha. The temple is normally visited by thousands of tourists, many of them Chinese, during the peak travel season from December to February, but large numbers of visitors as well as locals have stayed away since the outbreak began, said Phra Maha Udom Panyapho, a monk in charge of tourism at the temple.. A Protestant church in Seoul shut its doors and switched entirely to online worship services after one of its followers tested positive for the virus on Jan. 30.. Other Protestant churches in South Korea have sprayed their halls and rooms with disinfectant, canceled childrens Bible school programs and asked followers to minimize socializing. Hundreds of Catholic churches in the country have halted the use of holy water stoups, allowed churchgoers to wear masks during Masses and discouraged those with flu-like symptoms or those who came from countries with confirmed ...
Running the aisles is an ecstatic expression of worship that occurs occasionally in some contexts of worship in the Pentecostal and Holiness movements in Christianity. As the expression suggests, when a person runs the aisles in a worship setting, he leaves his seat and runs down the aisles between seating sections, or he may run around the interior perimeter of the meeting house. A biblical basis for the act known as running the aisles is difficult to establish. Nevertheless, in the Pentecostal worship tradition, spontaneous expressions inspired by the moving of the Spirit are highly valued, and in many congregations the spontaneous running of aisles has traditionally been an acceptable expression of joy. Typically those Pentecostals who run the church aisles do not do so unless they feel that they are overwhelmed by the presence of the Holy Spirit at a point in the service when the congregation in general is sensing His moving. It may be reasonable to classify running as a form of dancing. It ...
The idea behind this lyric, in my opinion, is the same lazy let go and let God philosophy that inoculates the people of God from doing anything practical or hands-on because we assume if we just sit back and sing some more songs then God, who is somehow energized by our inaction, will stand up, bare his almighty arm and get things done.. This song is from Hillsong, an Australian church. That surprises me. The Aussies are doers, arent they? Diggers, Stickers, People of Action rather than talk? [I am speaking to Baptist pastors in Australia next week] But here it sounds like Hey, there are a whole lot of mountains that need moving but theres no need to bust our guts; God will sort it out, so just be still and chill, let go and let God, say your prayers and then . . . Bobs your uncle. Or in other words, no worries, mate, lets just pass the buck on to God again.. This is Hakuna Matata theology.. Jesus did not say to his disciples, If you want to remove the mountain, host a city-wide worship ...

To a first-order approximation we can place most worship services on a continuum between clarity and mystery, depending on the setting and content of the service. This liturgical space can be thought of as a combination of the physical acoustics of the worship space and the qualities of the sound created during the worship service. A very clear acoustic channel emphasizes semantic content, especially speech intelligibility. An immersive, reverberant acoustic emphasizes mystery and music. One of the chief challenges in acoustical design is the fact that both clarity and immersion are subjectively preferred by audiences, yet these two goals are almost mutually exclusive of one another. The movement along this continuum in liturgical space can also be seen in the religious contexts for many of the worship spaces constructed in the West in the last two millennia. In the case of religious ceremony, a free field acoustic environment provides more clarity and precision in the spoken word received from God and

Some people worship God because they fear the consequences of disobedience as even one who rejects a government will still abide by its laws.. Others pine for a true devoutness to God never feeling that they achieved it. But there are yet others that are convinced that their worship of God is the product of complete devoutness.. Intuitively, one would think that a person should always strive to worship God out of devoutness rather than out of fear of punishment. But is this the true disposition that a person should have?. The Talmud Yerushalmi advises: Do out of Love. Do out of fear. On the one hand a person should strive to worship God out of Love, but on the other, one should always worship God with some measure of fear.. If you lapse in your Love for God, your fear of God will act as a fail-safe. This is also true contrarily. In either case you will still observe Gods commandments.. The lesson that the Talmud Yerushalmi teaches here is that a measure of pragmatism must always be used when ...
The text was Romans 11:33-36. The title was Thats Worship. Boiled down to its essence, his point was that worship springs from our daily experiences and is genuine when heartfelt. He asked, Why cant worship be like a Mariners game? (He is a fan of professional baseball.) Standing up and lifting someone up for what they have done and giving them the credit is worship. He used many texts to illustrate how God works and what he does, and why we worship Him ...
This volume explores cognition in the study of religion - that is, the mental processes that govern religious belief and behavior across cultures and eras. The essays in the volume are scientific in nature and universal in scope. They address (a) the naturalistic meta-theoretical stances taken to epistemologically justify cognitive explanations of religion, (b) the theoretical models of cognition that are employed in the cognitive science of religion, (c) the prominent cognitive theories of religion to date, (d) the methods used to gather data and test theories, and (e) experimental findings by cognitive scientists of religion. The volume is divided into two Parts. Part I includes selections that cover the meta-theories and theories employed by cognitive scientists of religion, and Part II includes experimental studies of religion. Combined, these selections make the volume especially useful for introducing students to the basic framework of the cognitive science of religion as well as to the ...
Question: How is the practical love of truth the best preservative against Popery?. If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious. - 1 Pet. ii. 3. When false worship had prevailed in the church of old unto its ruin, God showed and represented it unto his prophet under the name and appearance of a chamber of imagery, Ezek. viii. 11, 12. For therein were portrayed all the abominations wherewith the worship of God was defiled, and religion corrupted. Things relating unto divine truth and worship have had again the same event in the world, especially in the Church of Rome; and my present design is to take a view of the chambers of their imagery, and to show what was the occasion and what were the means of their erection: and in them we shall see all the abomination wherewith the divine worship of the gospel hath been corrupted, and Christian religion ruined. Unto this end it will be necessary to lay down some such principles of sacred truth as will demonstrate and evince the grounds and ...

I have worked with individuals in psychiatric hospitals and outpatient community mental health settings who suffered from schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders and whose symptoms included religiously-themed delusions. It would be difficult to mistake most of them for run-of-the-mill religious believers even though the line between religious delusion and the sort of beliefs held by some religious extremists can be fuzzy at times. Not only were their beliefs far outside what would be accepted by any religious tradition, but their religious beliefs were only one part of much larger syndromes. In most cases, one symptom does not make a mental disorder. Some specific religious beliefs can be held with delusional intensity by persons with psychotic disorders. But this is very different from asserting that anyone who holds any religious beliefs at all is mentally ill ...
MISSION SUNDAY (MISSION WORK AT HOME). MUSIC & WORSHIP RESOURCES. Sunday, July 8, 2012. Brandon A. Boyd, Young Adult Lectionary Team Liturgist. Worship Planning Notes. The Church is the spiritual healing organism for communities. As you prepare for worship this Sunday, think of ways to heal your community as you celebrate Mission Sunday in your local church. Strong and relevant Christian education ministries produce strong mission-focused churches. This is a great time to revitalize and/or ensure that your Christian education ministry is giving leadership to strong mission efforts in your community.. Marino J. Dasmarinas reflects on the mission of the church: God s word is not bounded by time and space; it s always relevant and timely. The command of Jesus to His disciples to proclaim the message and make a difference on the lives of their fellowmen is also His command to us right now: Proclaim the message and make a difference in the lives of your fellowmen. Suggestions to enhance your worship ...
A spiritual act is quite different from a physical act.Worshiping God is a spiritual activity.The urge to worship Him stems from our hearts because of what He has done for us through His Son Jesus Christ.This spiritual activity expresses itself in an outward or a physical act. In Psalm 95, we are exhorted to worship and bow down and to kneel before the Lord (Ps.95:6).But there are many elderly people of God who have problems in bowing down or kneeling.They can worship God in any manner that suits them. God looks at their hearts and not at their outward acts. We have to worship God in spirit and in truth.In Psalms 149:3, and in Psalm 150:4, there is an exhortation to dance. King David danced before the Lord with all his might (2 Sam.6:14).However, under the New Covenant, neither Jesus nor His disciples danced while worshiping the Father.We find that under the New Covenant, importance is given to prayers and spiritual growth of inner man.Under the Old Covenant, there was a physical temple where ...
worship God, they will, in keeping with their own nature, see Him as a huge buffalo; if a fish wants to worship God, it will have to form an Idea of Him as a big fish, and man has to think of Him as man. And these various conceptions are not due to morbidly active imagination. Man, the buffalo, and the fish all may be supposed to represent so many different vessels, so to say. All these vessels go to the sea of God to get filled with water, each according to its own shape and capacity; in the man the water takes the shape of man, in the buffalo, the shape of a buffalo and in the fish, the shape of a fish. In each of these vessels there is the same water of the sea of God. When men see Him, they see Him as man, and the animals, if they have any conception of God at all, must see Him as animal each according to its own ideal. So we cannot help seeing God as man, and, therefore, we are bound to worship Him as man. There is no other way. Two kinds of men do not worship God as man - the human brute ...
Not counting weddings and funerals, 38 percent of Americans say they go to religious services at least once a week. But there are big differences across demographic groups, with self-reported attendance peaking among older people, women, Southerners and Baptists, among others.. The biggest gap is between the oldest and youngest age groups. Sixty percent of people age 65 and older report attending religious services at least once a week; among 18 to 30-year-olds, just 28 percent go that often. Previous ABC News polls, similarly, have found that religious belief and practice increase with age.. There are other factors. Nearly half of Southerners attend services weekly, substantially more than elsewhere. Forty-four percent of women go weekly, compared to 32 percent of men. It follows that, among Southern women age 45 and up, weekly church attendance soars to 68 percent.. Forty-seven percent of Republicans attend church regularly, compared to 38 percent of Democrats and 29 percent of independents. ...

For me, the concept of sex robots totally contradicts the idea of MGTOW. To claim you dont want anything to do with women and to support and work towards fake vagina robots just seems hypocritical. I always hear MGTOW men on youtube claiming not to worship vagina or women yet they do this with ROBOTS. They call other men beta cucks while chasing and investing in robot tail. Men chasing sex robots is the definition of a blue pill thirsty cuck willing to do or pay anything for vagina; EVEN IF ITS NOT REAL. MGTOW men are lying to themselves saying that robot women are going to replace women in society and somehow make them change. Once again underlining another basic concept of MGTOW that women are not going to change and only get worse. You see, this entire robot delusion stems from feminism. Feminist women in fact benefit from keeping men distracted with a bunch of robot women. Instead of men doing manly things and building their future theyll spend their Friday nights banging a rubber glove ...
NBCs entertainment division produced Devil Worship, triggering much strife within the network.. The news division refused to allow Rivera on Today to promote Devil Worship, and Nightly News anchor Tom Brokaw told the Los Angeles Times quasi-news programs cheapens the genuine news product.. In the days before broadcast, with negative publicity mounting, NBC was forced to sell some commercials at half price.. The Los Angeles Times reported KNBCs Devil Worship broadcast carried just 14 commercials, including two for the National Enquirer and three for new horror movies.. An NBC spokeswoman told the Times the networks switchboards received 331 complaints in New York and Burbank. (A secretary at the NBC affiliate in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, said it received just one call - from a viewer whose home lost power as the broadcast began and wanted a rerun.). Devil Worship finished fifth in the weekly ratings, with viewers in almost 20 million homes. Only NBCs Cosby, Cheers and A ...

Respondents were asked about their belief in God and in life after death, the effects of their religious beliefs on their political beliefs, and the kinds of issues religious leaders should take a public stand on.

Still others sometimes simply assume that ancient Jewish worship, as depicted in the pages of scripture, corresponds with contemporary forms of Jewish worship, and so imagine that rabbis today perform animal sacrifices in neighborhood synagogues. (This, of course, is not the case.). In my classes, I therefore emphasize that Judaism historically divides rather neatly into two obviously related yet fairly distinct forms, or versions: the form of Judaism practiced during the biblical era (which is the form depicted within the pages of scripture), and a subsequent form of Judaism which developed later, after the biblical era, and which is in some ways quite different.. The biblical-era form of Judaism focused quite heavily upon the practice of offering frequent sacrifices to God (which God himself had commanded). Jewish worship came to revolve around the Temple in Jerusalem, which was the only place on Earth where God had authorized the offering of such sacrifices. These ritual sacrifices could ...
Downloadable! Many churches are concerned about older and dwindling congregations. We develop a theoretical framework to explain not only the downward trend in church attendance, but also the increase in the proportion of older people in the congregations. Religiosity depends positively on the expected social and spiritual benefits attached to religious adherence, as well as the probability of entering heaven in the afterlife. While otherworldly compensation in terms of salvation and spiritual benefits motivates religiosity, the costs of formal religion in terms of time allocated to communal activities and foregone income work in the opposite direction. We show that higher life expectancy discounts expected benefits in the afterlife and is hence likely to lead to postponement of religiosity. For this reason, religious organizations should be prepared to attract older members to their congregations, while emphasizing contemporaneous religious benefits to increase overall church attendance.
The Rap Guide to Religion by Baba Brinkman, released 23 October 2015 1. Invocation 2. Religion Evolves 3. God of the Gaps (Feat. Gaiaisi) 4. Sapiosexual 5. Give Thanks 6. Bad Things Happen 7.

Imagine The Rap Guide to Religion is a hip-hop concept album about the evolution of religious instincts, by Canadian science rapper Baba Brinkman. If the answer to the number one BIG QUESTION of religion is no, what other questions are worth asking? This album tackles the OTHER big questions of religion, such as How did faith evolve?, Does it serve any adaptive purpose today?, and Is religion an adaptation, a byproduct of an adaptation, or a virus of the mind?
There are religious people who follow their views on religious subjects quietly and without fuss, and there are religious people who insist that all other people must believe as they do (to the point of killing them if they wont.) I try to be respectful of the people in the first category; not so much the second.. But the truth is that A) every religion has rituals, practices, and beliefs that seen wacky to people not raised in that religion (and some that were), and B) every religion has some things that are assumed to be true but might not be (Im not talking about faith in general here, but concrete things WITHIN the faith.). Heres an example: Some people believe in the inerrancy of the Bible because they believe it to be the word of God. From that, they wind up reasoning that the Earth cannot be more than 6,000 years old, and evidence to the contrary is deception. Taking as a given for this thought experiment that the Bible IS the word of God (though, obviously, some peoples religious ...

In our time together, we share about our lives, support one another, talk about our faith and how we live out our faith in this complicated time, and worship (alternating between Communion, Evening Prayer, and Bible Study).. We meet Wednesdays at 8 p.m. for weekly worship in the Multifaith Chapel (behind 66 Comm Ave.), and every other Sunday evening at 6 p.m. for community dinners and conversations at our partner parish Church of the Redeemer (379 Hammond St.)..

At the end of each semester we host daily Study Days at Redeemer with quiet, homey study spaces, lots of great snacks and treats, and homemade family style ...
Originally, Zoroastrian worship was conducted in the open air. Nowadays every community worships in a fire temple where prayer rituals are performed in the presence of a sacred fire, which is seen as a living embodiment of Ahura Mazda.. Zoroastrians will prepare for prayer by washing their hands, face and other uncovered parts of their body. The kushti will be untied and held before a source of light (sun, fire or artificial light). Two prayers, the Ashem Vohu and the Ahunavar, are said.. For this a prayer room will be required. For devotions 24 hours are divided into five sections. Worship consists mostly of prayers requesting assistance in living righteous lives. There are ceremonies for all of the important points in life.. ...

They who say that as we worship so do we believe are right. As we believe, so shall we worship. Why should the Church not in every age undergo that same testing with very similar temptations undergone by Her Lord? But the Church now stands in a precarious position. Satan must be refused decisively, he cannot be refused half-heartedly. The Successors of the Apostles have been given spiritual power, along with the Pope to bind and loose men, but not to bind men alone. They have been given power by Christ to bind men for Heaven and the demons for Hell, for as they cried out to Our Lord, even the demons were subject to us in your name. The Church must refuse to compromise with evil, even when it is cleverly and subtly presented as good. Let us worship Christ who has conquered and invoke His Blessed Mothers aid for the Church. May she be strengthened in unity, faith, charity, hope and love for the Truth of Jesus Christ ...
According to data presented at the American Heart Associations meeting in Atlanta this week, younger adults who score high for religiosity were 50% more likely to be obese at mid-life compared to those low on the religious belief scale. Even controlling for some of the most important biological and social determinants for obesity (race, education, income and initial BMI), the relationship remains. Of course, this isnt an argument against religious belief or even an argument that religion is hazardous to your health. Its a correlation. But the important question is what OTHER features of those who are highly religious result in obesity later in life? There is some causal factor that we just dont understand yet. But based on this data you can bet that theres going to be an easy way to read the Bible on the treadmill coming your way soon or perhaps a merging of Bible study with Weight Watchers meetings.

Helping a congregation to identify itself as a Progressive Christian Church can be a challenge. In September of 1999 I was called to minister at the Church of Universal Fellowship in Orono, Maine. This church has identified itself as a Christian Community Church and believes that it is on the cutting edge of ecumenical Christianity by being post-denominational.. In its formative years during the 1940s, nondenominational tolerance of Christian diversity was highly prized in this university town and the congregation thrived. One could attend church and thus identify oneself as a good citizen, active community participant and good Christian without subscribing to irrational creeds or divisive denominational distinctions. This way of church life, popular with those born before 1945, largely assumed a dont ask - dont tell approach to personal religious beliefs.. The church proclaimed and lived its tolerance while adopting a very traditional Protestant hymnody and worship style and a classical ...

Doves are frequently shown throughout the movie. When Frankie first recieves the signs of the stigmata, a mourning dove is found flying in her house, one of its feathers drops into her bath and as she examines it, she recieves the wounds of Christ. Doves also appear at her window, where she interacts with them and offers food. They are present at the end of the movie after the stigmata has ended, she walks into the garden, holding a dove in her hand. A descending dove is also drawn above the Gospel that Franke writes on her bedroom wall. The dove is a strong symbol of Christian faith. The dove, especially one that is descending is a symbol of the Holy Spirit and are mentioned numerous times in scripture. The dove is representative of grace and Christian artists have depicted doves carrying banners with the seven gifts of the Holy Spirit written on them in Latin. These seven gifts are: wisdom, understanding, cousel, might, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord. All of these seven gifts ...
