A CULTURE AT RISK by Gordon Pennington

A CULTURE AT RISK by Gordon Pennington

Well we’re a culture at risk and no one can quite get a fix on how great the risks are. I think Solzhenitsyn was the first to… boldly bring it to people’s attention in the United States… when he gave the commencement address at Harvard University. And he looked at the United States and the situation we’re in as being… evidence of the death of the West. That we’ve really lost our soul… we’ve lost our center… our sense of…

Christ, Culture and the Church | Mike Mazzalongo | BibleTalk.tv

– The topic of my lesson today is how the church reacts to culture, and the influence that culture has on the Body of Christ. I’d like to read a passage of scripture. Paul writes in Romans chapter 12 verses one and two, “Therefore I urge you, brethren, “by the mercies of God, to present your bodies “a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, “which is your spiritual service of worship. “And do not be conformed to this world,…

The Problem with Cancel Culture | Ayishat Akanbi

The Problem with Cancel Culture | Ayishat Akanbi

‘Cancel Culture’ I think is complex, it’s complex because humans are complex, and that’s something we like to negate online. We should not undermine how quickly people can change their ideas. I know online it seems that people don’t change their ideas, because they are encouraged not to, but our ideas can change quite quickly. And so to cancel people for tweets that they made years ago, potentially even things they said last week I think it’s just to lie…

It’s a very serious organization, but at the same time, we like to have fun here. If someone were to ask me, “Should I work at GEICO?” It’s an emphatic yes. We do ask you to work hard, but when you think about the stability that we have, when you think about the compensation we have, the…

Culture and Natural History in Cuba

>>ANA LUZ PORZECANSKI: Islands are generally a good place to study biodiversity and evolution. In a way, they’re like natural experiments. They have sharp boundaries and they’re separated, sometimes for long periods of time. And so, evolution becomes more dramatic. This museum is about understanding life on Earth – why it is so diverse, how we can protect it and sustain it for the future. And so, if you want to understand how life evolved in the Caribbean Cuba is…
