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 ...

The order of a Sunday worship service in a Presbyterian church is determined by the pastor and the Session, the churchs governing body. It generally includes prayer, music, Bible reading and a sermon based upon scripture. The Sacraments, a time of personal response/offering, and a sharing of community concerns are also parts of worship.. The Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) suggests that worship be ordered in terms of five major actions centered in the Word of God (gathering around the Word, proclaiming the Word, responding to the Word, the sealing of the Word, and bearing and following the Word into the world), but recognizes that other orders of worship may also serve the needs of a particular church and be orderly, faithful to Scripture, and true to historic principles. (Book of Order W-3.3202). Prayer. Prayer is at the heart of worship. In prayer, through the Holy Spirit, people seek after and are found by the one true God who has been revealed in Jesus Christ. They ...

Rev. Jessica Tidwell-Weinzierl serves as Minister of Youth and Outreach at First Baptist in Rutherfordton, NC. Besides youth and outreach, one of her passions is fostering dogs with the help of her partner and their current furever pups. She is a graduate of McAfee School of Theology.. Worship sometimes seems like a worn down word - like a once beautiful concept that has been squeezed into those specially recognized hours that might be on a Sunday at 8am or 11am; perhaps the 5pm hour on Sunday evening; or, if a church is really reaching outside of the box, on Friday at 6pm.** I dont think I realized exactly how true this was until the first time I ever talked to my own youth about what worship is. Almost all of them associated the word with those specified hours of a Worship Service.Now, I almost wonder if we do a disservice to ourselves as the Church by calling those hours together Worship Services, because it seems like the unintended implication is that worship happens in those times ...

The Kaduna State Government said markets or places of worship have not been reopened in the State. According to the Special Adviser to the Governor Media and Communication Muyiwa Adekeye these public spaces were closed in March 2020 as the state stepped-up Covid-19 prevention efforts.. He said relevant government agencies will engage business, community, and religious leaders to discuss and agree on the protocols for the safe opening of businesses and market, and resumption of congregational worship.. Adekeye further stated that the State Government has started engagements with business leaders, and began receiving recommendations from some religious leaders on the subject of safe re-opening of places of worship. However, these consultations have not been concluded.. Until these consultations result in a formal announcement authorising businesses, markets and places of worship to reopen, it will be a violation of subsisting Quarantine Orders to reopen any unauthorised facility, market or places ...

No matter who you are or where you are on lifes journey, God welcomes you… and so do we!. Worship online via zoom ...
WASHINGTON (CNS) - Americans overwhelmingly back pandemic-related restrictions on worship services, saying houses of worship should not be exempt.. Americans, by a 4-to-1 margin, said houses of worship should be subject to the same social-distancing rules as other organizations. The ratio backing this view was 3-to-1 for Christians, 4-to-1 for Jews, and 9-to-1 for those who are religiously unaffiliated.. Among Republicans and those who lean Republican, the margin was 2-to-1, and among Democrats and those who lean Democratic, the margin was 13-to-1.. The results were issued Aug. 7 by the Pew Research Center in a new report, Americans Oppose Religious Exemptions From Coronavirus-Related Restrictions.. On this question, Americans seem to align with two recent Supreme Court orders, which rejected lawsuits claiming that state restrictions on worship violated the First Amendments guarantee of religious freedom, the Pew report said.. Among adults who go to church regularly, 55% said their ...

Starting this blog has been more challenging than I expected. When I consider all that has been written on worship the past few years (and Im sure Ive just seen a small slice), it doesnt seem like theres much more to say. We simply need to do it. Worship God, that is. In addition, many of the articles/books Ive read communicate what I want to share much better than I could ever hope to. Maybe I should just make my blog a collection of great quotes on worship. Im also concerned that churning out a five-day-a-week column (thats the goal, anyway) might be a little challenging. Im not sure I can even convince Julie, my wife and best …. ...
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 ...

AC/DCs Money Talks is an ode to greedy debauchery. It revels in the worst of our self-centered, materialistic society that idolizes pleasure. In the song, the trappings of riches are glorified; the singer asks to be loved for his money. With the song, AC/DC is flaunting our societys rebellion against God. It goes without saying, but Money Talks has absolutely nothing to do with the Creator of the Universe. Furthermore, and this also should go without saying, Money Talks has no place in a worship service to the Almighty and Holy God.. Sadly, The Pointe Churchs prayer for God to save sinners was followed up with a song celebrating sin and sinners. The desire for relevancy is an idol that has caused many churches to take their eyes off of Jesus.. God commands His people to keep His day holy. That means worship of the Lord is to be set apart from sin. Throughout the Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, God defines right worship of Himself as obedience. A famous example of this is found ...
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. ...
The curriculum at HTP is broad and balanced, enabling all children to be successful and to move on to the next stage of education.. All children study RE to develop their spiritual and cultural understanding along with exploring moral issues. Before each act of Collective Worship the children acknowledge the Lighting of the Candle and then put their thoughts after the Worship into their Reflection Diaries.. Children are encouraged to take time to reflect on what is happening in the world around them and their role within it. They are given regular (daily) opportunities to reflect on their response to situations in their school, their locality and the wider world community.. The schools definition of Spirituality has been based on the three images: a window, a mirror and a door. The window prompts them to consider something that they have learnt, either through a Collective Worship session or through class discussion or a news broadcast. The mirror represents them taking the time to reflect on ...

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 ...

As you may know if youve read my blog before, I have the privilege of being on the worship team at Hope. I get to help lead music at Hopes worship services multiple times a week. It is my favorite thing that I do at Hope. When I look back on my time in college, I am pretty positive that this will be the thing that I think of, even though I was only on the team for one year. It has been a privilege and a blessing to work with such wonderful people day after day, all for the glory of the Lord that we love. I am thankful.. Last night, the two worship teams combined our seniors (since this is my last semester on the team due to my early graduation, I count!) and came together for our last Gathering rehearsal (the Gathering is our big Sunday night service, and the final one of the year is on Sunday). It was fun to play with a couple people that I do not normally see as much since they are on the other team, and I am thankful to get to call the people on this team some of my best friends. My team, ...
I just want to go to church!. Of course, everyone agrees that real-life, in person church is best, we all miss it. Our first and foremost priority is the health and well-being of everyone. It continues to not be a safe option to worship in-person right now. So, we have been on an adventure trying to find alternative, meaningful ways to worship God, to keep us connected as a community and to get us through this unprecedented time together.. One way to worship virtually at First Presbyterian that seems to work for many people is to go to our website and press play to watch a video of the live-streamed service. Watching the video of worship is a great option. You can cast it to your big screen TV at home. and you can watch the worship service at a time that is convenient to you. We are pleased that we can make this option available and this option will continue to be available on our web page. The limitation of this option of virtual worship is that you can worship with those in your home ...
God is holy and therefore we should be holy as well. Reverence is a proper attitude of the heart demonstrated by many things including physical posture. This does not mean worship cannot be loud, for we are told to Shout to the Lord, but it does mean that worship cannot be disorderly, chaotic, frantic, or obnoxious. All things are to be done decently and in order, we are told, and that order is rightly understood to be more than an organized form, but also involves a reverent heart attitude. For worship to be worship in spirit and truth, the heart and lips must match.. Psalm 95:6-7 is not just one way in which we worship God, it is a plea to come and worship and to do so with an understanding of Who He is and who we are. This leads to reverence and humility.. Within the context of the study Recovering a Right Perspective, we started with a recovering a right view of God and showed how that helps us have a right view of worship, self, sin, and others. The focus here in that we come to ...
All the members of the WMC attend the meeting for worship as regularly as possible, listen, experience and appreciate the meeting for worship, silence and vocal ministry. We regularly and thoughtfully consider the quality of meeting for worship, vocal ministry, silence, afterthoughts and the rise of meeting for worship as major topics of our committee meetings. When meeting on grounds, the WMC provides greeters for each weeks meeting for worship, who read the 12 topical queries from Faith and Practice monthly. Greeters also replenish brochures and are careful to reach out to newcomers and visitors. Historically, the attendance at meeting for worship on First Day varies from week to week and month to month. To place 2020 in perspective, a census of meeting attendance in November 2019 indicated that attendance at First Day meeting for worship was an average of 65 adults (ages range 50-71) and 7 children (ages range 4-10). In 2019, the mid-week meeting attendance was generally between 4-12. All ...
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 ...
As we draw ever closer to election time, Marxists who stand before the Christian world as wolves in sheeps garb, are preaching the worship of Caesar as the meaning of the Gospel. In the article Two Wrongs Dont Make A Right, the reply to Jim Wallis book entitled Gods Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesnt Get It, goes unanswered. And as the American people draw ever nearer to election time, Jim Wallis is preaching that its OK for Christians to abandon the core teachings of Jesus and TheWay, and submit to the power and worship of Caesar (see Training For Change). Countless modern archeological discoveries have proven that the original Ebionite Nazirene Disciples of Jesus were correct in their position that Jesus was a man who fulfilled the Law within himself, and became the Anointed (Messiah/Christ) at his baptism (see http://TheTenWords.com ). And as presented in Two Wrongs Dont Make A Right, while the Religious Right gets it wrong because they continue to promote the ...

The impulse to be mission-oriented is right. The church exists in the world for the sake of the world. The Spirit of God empowers the people of God to continue the mission of God. Yet when it is over-emphasized, the services become a sales pitch and church a showroom floor. The staff become performers, and the congregants become the salesforce. The temptation arises to justify ungodly or simply foolish means for godly ends. (We can all think of examples of this).. The impulse to be mission-oriented is right...Yet when it is over-emphasized, the services become a sales pitch and church a showroom floor. Click To Tweet The second paradigm is that of formation. According to this model, the church service is meant to make disciples. Proponents of this view can be found in the Reformed traditions, from Anglicans to Presbyterians to Baptists. Think of Robert Webber or Marva Dawn or Tim Keller or James K. A. Smith. Each in different yet overlapping ways have persuasively argued that worship should have ...

What kinds of percussion instruments should we use? Start with just a few, and use instruments of as high a quality as you can. Percussion instruments are not toys, and cheap instruments will not add to the quality (or the sincerity) of worship. On the other hand, wonderful instruments can be made with inexpensive materials.. Think of the kinds of sounds the instruments make: high, medium, and low sounds; hard, crisp sounds or soft, swishy sounds; rattling, wooden sounds; ringing or metallic sounds. Good percussion combines and contrasts different sounds to support the pulse of the music, the shape of the hymn, and the emotions expressed by the singing congregation.. High, crisp sounds produced by snare drums, tambourines, or claves (those round, wooden, dowel-shaped sticks) cut through all other sounds; they tend to dominate and set the tempo in the same way that hand claps do, and for the same reason.. Soft, swishy sounds, like small maracas or rhythm eggs, fill in the middle of the sound ...

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 ...

A conservator (from Latin: conservator, lit. 'a keeper, preserver, defender'), was a judge delegated by the pope to defend certain privileged classes of persons - as universities, Catholic religious orders, chapters, the poor - from manifest or notorious injury or violence, without recourse to a judicial process. Conservators were appointed as early as the 13th century; the title was given to officers appointed by the Synod of Würzburg in 1287 to protect the privileges of certain religious persons. Pope Innocent IV presupposed their existence in the decree from which we first learn their power. Owing to abuses and complaints the Council of Trent limited their jurisdiction, but new controversies, often recurring, caused popes Clement VIII, Gregory XV, and Innocent X to define their privileges more precisely. Troubles continued to arise, especially concerning the conservators of religious orders. Pope Clement XIII decreed that in missionary countries such officials should no longer be chosen, but ...

A provost is a senior official in a number of Christian Churches. The word praepositus (Latin: "set over", from praeponere, "to place in front") was originally applied to any ecclesiastical ruler or dignitary. It was soon more specifically applied to the immediate subordinate to the abbot of a monastery, or to the superior of a single cell, and it was defined as such in the Rule of St Benedict. The dean (decanus) was a similarly ranked official. Chrodegang of Metz adopted this usage from the Benedictines when he introduced the monastic organization of canon-law colleges, especially cathedral capitular colleges. The provostship (praepositura) was normally held by the archdeacon, while the office of dean was held by the archpriest. In many colleges, the temporal duties of the archdeacons made it impossible for them to fulfil those of the provostship, and the headship of the chapter thus fell to the dean. The title became prevost in Old French, before being adopted as "provost" in English. Prévôt ...

In the latter sense, specifically, the abyss was often seen as a prison for demons. This usage was ...
