  • LDS congregation splits in two

    The local congregation of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints saw record attendance at last Sunday’s worship service as members all met together for the last time while witnessing a historic day for the church in Los Alamos — a splitting of the ward.
    Membership had grown to 603 members, including 110 in the children’s organization, and with approval of church leaders in Salt Lake City, Utah, it was time for a change. Starting this week, two separate congregations will meet in the same building at different times.
    “We grow by dividing,” Stake President Michael Zollinger said, who presides over about a dozen LDS congregations in Northern New Mexico. “Today is a testimony of what it means to be a member of the church.”
    Membership of each congregation is based on geographic location of residence. Zollinger revealed the boundaries for the two new congregations, the Los Alamos Ward and Pajarito Ward, to members for the first time Sunday morning with lines on a projected map during the service.
    The Los Alamos Ward divided once before in 1978 to form the Los Alamos and White Rock wards. Including the White Rock congregation, countywide membership today is about 1,000.

  • Pope Francis gives church hundreds of new saints

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis on Sunday gave the Catholic church new saints, including hundreds of 15th-century martyrs who were beheaded for refusing to convert to Islam, as he led his first canonization ceremony Sunday in a packed St. Peter's Square.

    The "Martyrs of Otranto" were 813 Italians who were slain in the southern Italian city in 1480 for defying demands by Turkish invaders who overran the citadel to renounce Christianity.

    Their approval for sainthood was decided upon by Francis' predecessor, Benedict XVI, in a decree read at the ceremony in February where the former pontiff announced his retirement.

    Shortly after his election in March, Francis called for more dialogue with Islam, and it was unclear how the granting of sainthood to the martyrs would be received. Islam is a sensitive subject for the church, and Benedict stumbled significantly in his relations with Muslims.

    The first pontiff from South America also gave Colombia its first saint: a nun who toiled as a teacher and spiritual guide to indigenous people in the 20th century.

  • Theologoical show to debut

    Starting Sunday, a locally produced radio program will be broadcast on KRSN 1490 AM.
    The name of the program is the Redeemer Theological Academy.  The speaker and producer of the program is Rev. Brian L. Kachelmeier who is the pastor of Redeemer Evangelical Lutheran Church.  
    The idea for the radio program came from the lecture seminars that have been offered at Redeemer Lutheran Church.  
    In the fall of 2011, Dr. Reed Lessing opened up the lecture series with the topic of Christ in the Psalms.  
    Lectures that followed focused on the doctrine of the Holy Trinity. From the idea of offering free lectures to the community, the concept of making these lectures free on the internet through podcasting was birthed.  
    In January of 2012, the Redeemer Theological Academy website was launched.
     Since last fall, the Redeemer Theological Academy has been broadcast on KNGN 1360 AM in Nebraska as a weekly radio program.
    Now the Academy will hit the airwaves of New Mexico. Each episode lasts thirty minutes.
    Lectures on the Academy are designed to help you better understand how the church has confessed the Christian Faith throughout the ages.
    The first series of lectures will concentrate on the doctrine of vocation in which love God by serving our neighbor.
