A Season Of Hope, C. William Pollard Dec 2004

A Season Of Hope, C. William Pollard

C. William Pollard Papers

Reflecting on how both Christians and Jews are "prisoners of hope" during Christmas and Hanukkah, Pollard offers his audience a hopeful vision of business, one in which management's servant leadership leads to a positive corporate ethos. Such leadership can, he argues, help to create organizations that are not just profit-driven but also morally conscious.

Utopia In The Midst Of Oppression? A Reconsideration Of Guaraní/Jesuit Communities In Seventeenth And Eighteenth Century Paraguay, Thomas W. O'Brien Dec 2004

Utopia In The Midst Of Oppression? A Reconsideration Of Guaraní/Jesuit Communities In Seventeenth And Eighteenth Century Paraguay, Thomas W. O'Brien

Thomas W O'Brien

This essay is an examination of the 17th–18th century Guaraní/Jesuit communities in Paraguay, which were exalted as utopias by countless witnesses. These authors have stressed the long periods of peaceful coexistence, the rich and fruitful syncretistic melding cultures, the successful and bountiful economic life, and the relative justice. Nevertheless, controversy has always marked these communities because many believe that the Jesuit/Guaraní missions are best understood as integral to the larger oppressive imposition of European polity and culture. These authors stress evidence of condescending paternalism, structural inequality, restricted freedom of choice, and the erosion of a pristine Guaraní ...

The 10 Commandments, James L. Smith Jr. Dec 2004

The 10 Commandments, James L. Smith Jr.

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"In the Qur’ān, there is not a list of commandments such as we see in the Bible; however, there are many injunctions throughout the text of the Qur’ān. From these, Caeser E. Farah extracts a list of 10 “commandments” in his book, Islam. When comparing these Islamic commandments with the Judeo-Christian 10 Commandments, we can see some obvious similarities, some subtle differences and some commandments that don’t even compare."

From Abraham To Jacob: Promise And Fulfillment, Linda Wert

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Since the beginning of time, God has had a special relationship with humans. After the creation of the heavens and the earth, God bestowed the rule of the land and sea to His most favored creation, man. Although Adam and Eve sinned against God, He still bestowed favor on them. He banished them from the Garden of Eden for their sin but gave them clothing (Genesis 3:21). When Cain killed Abel, God banned Cain from the land of his parents but put a mark upon him that ...

Fire In The Soul Of Zurga: Bizet's The Pearl Fishers And Male Sati, Lori Dabbagh

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Although in recent years Georges Bizet’s “other” opera, Les Pêcheurs de perles (The Pearl Fishers), has been performed on occasion, scant attention has been paid to it, compared to his world-renowned masterpiece Carmen. Even those who are not avowed opera goers have at least heard of the Habañera (L’amour est un oiseau rebelle) and more so, the ever-popular Toreador Song. Bizet penned The Pearl Fishers at age 25, and enthusiasts of this early work praise the “freshness of inspiration” which contributes to its “perennial success.” (9 ...

Faith In Health And Health In Life, Sarah M. Piston

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"It is all too common that people must learn to cope with the knowledge that a loved one is fighting a potentially deadly disease. The advancements of modern medicine, while helping to heal the body, oftentimes neglect the emotional and psychological effects an affliction has on the patient as well as his family and friends. Faith and religion of any sort can be an incredibly effective tool in dealing with such a distressing situation; not as a salve for the physical pain, but in addressing the emotional wounds ...

The Reality Of Humiliation: A Reflection, Jonathan Schott

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"There are many factors that have played a role in the decrease of privacy in the United States today. Since the attacks on September 11, 2001, we as Americans have experienced a widening increase of governmental restrictions, searches, and inquiries that are set in place to insure our future security against terrorist threats. Coupled with this official state entrance into our privacy we also have been subject to deeper invasions privacy from the public sector. We now hunger to see into peoples’ personal lives and to live vicariously ...

All Part Of God's Plan?, Michael Galpin

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"My whole life, my parents have always sent me to a catholic school. Ever since I can remember, I have had God in my life. What I was taught when I was young and impressionable, was that God is always with me, looking out for me and making sure I do the right thing, much like a father figure. I received all my sacraments, never asking any questions about the God that I believe in, the God that I was taught to believe in. It might sound naïve ...

Living With Other Gods, Quratulain Majoka

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"America the melting pot,” how many times have we heard this remark, yet it is so true. It is a diverse melting pot of many people, cultures, and religions. Diversity can lead either to intolerance or to acceptance. It is up to us, as Homo sapiens, or wise humans to accept the latter. This however comes with a challenge, for we are compelled to defend ourselves in the face or ignorance and cruelty. We live in a very complex country and time, yet we face the same problems ...

Living With Other Gods, Kristina Braell

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"I genuflect in the darkened sanctuary of my church and slide into a cool pew. With a low thud the kneeler hits the floor and I kneel in prayer, concentrating on the blood-red flame of the candle. Christ is in this place, it whispers. Even the silence seems to listen as the answers to my prayers stream through the myriad-colored windows that drench me in richly stained light. I close my eyes, pray for guidance, and just think. God will not mind, and I smile to myself. Outside ...
