Greek and Roman World Mythology: The Olympian God Ares [ Aphrodite ] [ Apollo ] [ Ares ] [ Artemis ] [ Athene ] [ Hades ] [ Hephaestus ] [ Hera ] [ Hermes ] [ Hestia ] [ Poseidon ] [ Zeus ] Ares was known as the unpopular god of war.

Six Reasons Why The Wall Is Holy 1) Site of the Holy Temple The Western Wall is a surviving remnant of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem, which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 CE. The Temple was the center of the spiritual world, the main conduit for the flow of Godliness. When the Temple stood, the world was filled with awe of God and appreciation for the genius of the Torah. Jewish tradition teaches that all of creation began in Jerusalem. The epicenter is Mount Moriah, known by mystics as "the watering stone."
Adolescent Literacy - A video interview with Rick Riordan Rick Riordan was born in San Antonio, Texas in 1964. His mom, dad, and grandparents were all teachers.

Who Were the Sons of God in Genesis 6? In Genesis 6:1-8 we read about some persons who may be a pre-Flood link between the Bible and the cultures of the ancient Near East. They are the "sons of the gods." The biblical reference to them should have some relationship with historical fact. If so, we should be able to lift these early chapters of Genesis out of what may be to some a foggy mysticism, and make connections with extra-biblical historical accounts.

The Parts of Speech Welcome to HyperGrammar electronic grammar course at the University of Ottawa's Writing Centre. This course covers approximately the same ground as our English department's ENG 1320 Grammar course. The content of HyperGrammar is the result of the collaborative work of the four instructors who were teaching the course in Fall 1993: Heather MacFadyen, David Megginson, Frances Peck, and Dorothy Turner. David Megginson was then responsible for editing the grammar and exercises and for converting them to SGML. This package is designed to allow users a great deal of freedom and creativity as they read about grammar.
Realization of Prophetic Visions Realization of Prophetic Visions By Philip Mark Ames "I know a man in Christ who, fourteen years ago (whether in body I do not know, or outside of the body I do not know; God knows) was caught away to the third heaven. And I know this man (whether in body or apart from the body I do not know; God knows) that was snatched away into paradise, and he heard unspoken sayings which it is not lawful for man to speak."

Elizabeth I and Elizabethan life in England High SocietySociety began to form along new lines in the Tudor years. If feudal England was an age of community, Tudor England was one of individuality. Nobility and knights were still at the top of the social ladder, but the real growth in society was in the merchant class.

Incurvatus in se "Latin: Incurvatus in se" (Turned/curved inward on oneself) is a theological phrase describing a life lived "inward" for self rather than "outward" for God and others. Paul the Apostle wrote of this condition in the Epistle to the Romans 7:15, 7:8-19: For that which I do I allow not: for what I would, that do I not; but what I hate, that do I. [...] For I know that in me (that is, in my flesh,) dwelleth no good thing: for to will is present with me; but how to perform that which is good I find not. For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do.
News Literacy: How to Teach Students to Search Smart Students learn how to find the truth in a sea of factoids. Credit: Quickhoney The word simple can rarely be used when it comes to describing online searches for news and information. Type a noun and a refining adjective into a search engine, and you're presented with an indefinite number of links (hence, perhaps, the word Google). The information can seem equally useful at first glance but will inevitably vary wildly in accuracy, from a New York Times article to a deadpan spoof in the Onion to a biased political blog filled with misinformation. Students learn how to find the truth in a sea of factoids. Spiritual Formation Agenda Our world today cries out for a theology of spiritual growth that has been proven to work in the midst of the harsh realities of daily life. Sadly, many have simply given up on the possibility of growth in character formation. Vast numbers of well-intended folk have exhausted themselves in church work and discovered that this did not substantively change their lives. They found that they were just as impatient and egocentric and fearful as when they began lifting the heavy load of church work.
