Peace and Refugees Around the World
12/18/2013 Refugees are people who are forced to leave their home country due to war and violence, seeking peace in a foreign country. The Christmas season is associated with the coming of Jesus to bring peace to the earth. One of the ways that peace is made today is by welcoming refugees into a new, safe community. You can take action to help integrate refugees and migrants, and support their quest for employment, education and wellbeing.
Cordialmente Suya: Señales de Emanuel by /por Harriett Jane Olson
12/01/2013 ¿Alguna vez has buscado el cartel con el nombre de una calle en un lugar desconocido y has sido incapaz de encontrarlo? Uno mira donde pensamos que el cartel "debería" estar. He estado en ciudades donde los nombres de las calles están en las esquinas de los edificios y en ciudades, donde los carteles se hallan colgados en el medio de la calle. Una vez que uno ve uno de estos carteles y entiende dónde se encuentran, entonces puede encontrarlos fácilmente. A menudo, si esperamos que los carteles estén en blanco y negro, no podemos ver los carteles si están en verde o marrón, aunque estén frente a nosotras. Se hace difícil ver los carteles de otros colores cuando "sabemos" de qué color los esperamos ver.
Responsively Yours: Signs of Emmanuel by Harriett Jane Olson
11/25/2013 Have you ever looked for a street sign in an unfamiliar place and been unable to find one? We look where we think the sign “should” be. I’ve been in towns where the signs are on the corners of the buildings and in towns where they hang in the middle of the street. Once you see one and understand where to look, you can find them easily. Often if we expect the signs to be black and white, we can’t see the green or brown ones that are right there. It can be difficult to see the signs when we “know” what we expect to see.
