Profane on the Sacred

Next Step #657: An assault on democracy and the attack on the US Capitol is examined by Fr. Vazken in a contrast between the sacred and the profane. Chipping away at the sacred. Punctuation: Women and men in written form. The nonsense of non-denominationalization: literal or symbolic, all is defendable. The flow and beauty of the prime numbers and prime factors. Once again: Dates and Calendars. The 2021 MLK Retreat: A virtual event.

A Tale of Two Letters

Next Step #502: Two letters, one welcoming and the other excluding – both from clergy 50 years apart: progress is not in the making. Battery Recharge: Martin Luther King Retreat in review and the Letter from Birmingham Jail. Is it just a matter of “doing it”? Adapting Nike’s “Just Do It” to the faith community. Deaconness in the Armenian Church and the uproar by a pharisaic community within orthodoxy.

Strip Away to Faith

Next Step #234 – November 29, 2012

Did you survive Black Friday & Cyber Monday? Now engage in the art of belly-dancing – it’s a strip -tease to uncover faith. The New Israel is not a place, so seek your mind on God’s Kingdom first. Issues of identity and belonging in a pluralistic society are discussed. How to read the Bible: avoid the literal and find God. MLK Retreat and a vending machine that dispenses caviar and snails – all in the mix in this Next Step.
