How the Months Got Their Names in the Italian Language

I mesi  The months  The original Roman year had ten named months, beginning with Martius, named for Mars, god of war. This was the month when the mighty Roman legions resumed their battles to conquer and rule the known world. It was also the time when farmers began working the fields and preparing for planting.  The other months were:  *Aprilis (April), dedicated to the goddess of love Aphrodite (Venus)  *Maius (May), for Maia, the goddess of new plantings (who also gave her name to il maial...

Old year, new year

The new year has begun. I admit to wondering what this new year is going to bring. Last year was bad enough, could this year be worse? Could it be better? Could it be just a repeat of the old year? We expect New Year’s to give us a new start. We hope that it will be a good start, but many times it isn’t. Loved ones who have celebrated Christmas with us suddenly die soon after New Year’s is over. Crises that we have experienced in life don’t stop at 11:59 PM on December 31 and at 12:00 AM everyth...

Woodland Hills street becomes chanting ground for LA teachers strike supporters

Dozens of students, parents and teachers took to the streets in Woodland Hills Friday to show their support for Los Angeles teachers who are expected to go on strike Monday. Daneh Gallo, a fifth-grade teacher from Welby Way Elementary School, in West Hills, said she was not concerned about a pay raise but rather about her class size. “I had kids who were on a suicide watch and kids who were depressed,” she said, adding that with social media “the essence of our jobs has changed, but the district...

Wise Men Still Bring Gifts: Our Extraordinary Christmas in Egypt

Egyptian Christians are experiencing new freedom, protection, and encouragement from their civil government for the first time in decades. A long-standing law prohibiting the construction of churches has been overturned. Christians have been newly appointed to gubernatorial positions in the government. Church leaders are in new dialogue with a national government previously distinguished by its intolerance of the Christian faith. Most astonishingly, President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, a devout...

Emotionally Identified with Men

Love is also an emotional identification. It considers nothing its own but gives all freely to the object of its affection. We see this constantly in our world of men and women. A young mother, thin and tired, nurses at her breast a plump and healthy baby, and far from complaining, the mother gazes down at her child with eyes shining with happiness and pride. Acts of self-sacrifice are common to love. Christ said of Himself, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for h...

How to Enhance Personal Books in Logos, and Why You Should Do It

Guest writer Adam B. Shaeffer holds an MA in Spiritual Formation from Talbot School of Theology and a PhD in Theology from Durham University. He is already a big fan of Logos 8. In my previous post, I discussed C.S. Lewis’ introduction to a translation of St. Athanasius’ The Incarnation of the Word of God. If you’ve read his introduction, and if you’re like me, you want to read the version he introduced. Unfortunately for us, that version isn’t yet available in Logos and isn’t in the public dom...

The Southern Belize Fly Tying Initiative - Hopkins Session

Julian slowly stroked and twisted the tan craft fur between his thumb and index finger on the underside of the Gotcha that had just come off the vise of Dave Student.  Turning his head while inspecting the fly, you could see Julian mentally playing through the steps and tying techniques that had just been taught and then he said aloud..."I really thought robots made these or something..."We were just a couple minutes into the introductory fly tying session and I could already see wonderment writ...

Go With Your Gifts

I've been having a conversation in the comments (noteworthy in itself as I usually don't even allow conversations in the comments—as I sometimes say, this isn't a forum) with a reader who, despite being of older age, is willing to remain flexible, change with the times, and reinvent himself if need be. That's admirable and I don't want to pretend otherwise. But he's insisting that I, too, should change with the times and become a vlogger (video blogger). Like Scotty Kilmer, for example. Another ...

Why Don’t Atheists Show More Curiosity About Their Own Beliefs?

We Christians get charged with believing things uncritically, not showing sufficient curiosity about other beliefs, or about how ours could be true. I’ve got the same sort of question for atheists.* Thinking Christian commenter Benjamin Cain supposes that the God Christians worship is a “human-like,” “monstrous,” “psychopathic,” “jealous, irrational, sadistic tyrant,” waving the equivalent of a “magic wand.” That’s all found in just one single tour de force of a comment. He’s not alone; Richard ...

Provence Budget Tips: A moveable feast minus the extravagant costs

Even for those who have yet to step foot on French soil, Provence is a name familiar to many — whether it is the vision of billowing lavender fields, the illustrious work of Vincent Van Gogh, the eponymous wine appellations, and of course, the sapphire shorelines of Mediterranean bliss. Some call Provence the quintessence of France: the grand intersection of fine wine, buzzing culture, delectable food, and wondrous nature. Though the region may be rich in its fruits, there are plenty of ways to ...

A Foundation Stone

That God is good is taught or implied on every page of the Bible and must be received as an article of faith as impregnable as the throne of God. It is a foundation stone for all sound thought about God and is necessary to moral sanity. To allow that God could be other than good is to deny the validity of all thought and end in the negation of every moral judgment. If God is not good, then there can be no distinction between kindness and cruelty, and heaven can be hell and hell, heaven. The good...

A little help from my friends

Image from Maxpixel My grandest project of 2018 has been writing a new book, which was commissioned by Kogan Page in January. Anyone who has authored a book will know how compelling, and also how lonely it can be. Throughout the year, the book has continuously exercised my mind, and I have spent countless hours of planning, thinking, researching, writing and editing.I decided to call the book 'Digital Learning in Organisations' from the outset because my expertise lies in learning techn...

Randy Thompson: Advent — Waiting for the Lights to Come on in a Power Outage

Advent: Waiting for the Lights to Come on in a Power Outage By Randy Thompson Winter has arrived early here in our part of New Hampshire.  On the plus side, the final stages of leaf raking and fall clean-up were taken care of  by the snow.  However. . . We’ve had three significant snow falls in November, and it’s now just barely December, and who knows what December has to offer us. The last snowfall, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, was memorable for several reasons. First, we had nine inches ...

Bengals WR John Ross set to return to L.A., where he made his name with Jordan High School

Before he was a receiver for the Cincinnati Bengals – set to return to Los Angeles for the first time as a professional Sunday against the Chargers – before he was the ninth-overall pick in the 2017 NFL draft, before he was playmaker for the Washington Huskies, John Ross was simply the new kid at Jordan High School. After his freshman year at Dorsey, Ross’ family moved to Long Beach and he enrolled at Jordan. Despite a reputation he’d built in youth football leagues around Los Angeles, Ross was ...
