(Well, it’s not that bad, but close.) Don’t Think God Speaks to People Today? – Think Again « Religion I thank God that when I address how God has spoken to me I am not talking about something that happened just yesterday. In fact it is something that has followed me my entire life. There is not enough room in one article to cover it and even my book “An American Prophet and His Message’ could not cover it in its entirety. I still get questions and arguments from doubters among which are a good number of armchair theologians that have swallowed the teaching that says God has stopped speaking directly to men and women since the advent of the Bible. Not even the Bible supports that worn out idea and has no realistically supportable proof texts to bolster such a view.

Glossary of Poetic Terms : Learning Lab Abecedarian Related to acrostic, a poem in which the first letter of each line or stanza follows sequentially through the alphabet. See Jessica Greenbaum, “A Poem for S.” Tom Disch’s “Abecedary” adapts the principles of an abecedarian poem, while Matthea Harvey’s “The Future of Terror/The Terror of Future” sequence also uses the alphabet as an organizing principle. Poets who have used the abecedarian across whole collections include Mary Jo Bang, in The Bride of E, and Harryette Mullen, in Sleeping with the Dictionary. Accentual verse Verse whose meter is determined by the number of stressed (accented) syllables—regardless of the total number of syllables—in each line.

The 5 Most Dangerous Creativity Killers When it comes to doing creative work, it’s important to not only look for ways to let our creativity thrive, but to also be mindful of insidious “creativity killers” that can sneak up and strangle our ability to come up with our best ideas. According to research from Harvard University, there are five main culprits that are responsible for killing our creativity. It’s important to recognize these impediments to the creative thought process because many are insidious, and worse yet, most can be made on the managerial end, meaning we may be stifling our creative workers without even realizing it. For those of us doing creative work, we must be mindful of these deterrents of the creative process so we can continue to put out our most novel ideas.
