  • “Should individuals be excluded from communion just because they are not members of the church in which it is being observed?” — David

    If you thought the topic of baptism generated high-energy responses, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. Just mention communion. A great deal of blood has been spilled among Christians over the former — but immeasurable words of theological debate have been penned regarding the latter.
    In this brief space we cannot get into transubstantiation, consubstantiation, and related views of the New Testament teachings on the supper. Neither can we delve into the specific nature of the efficacy of the event, whether sacramental, salvific, or symbolic. All of these topics do relate to your question, however, because various Christian traditions have, rightly or wrongly, successfully rendered communion as well as baptism into actions of the church that divide believers.
    So, let’s look at the texts (Mt. 26:26-29; Mk. 14:22-25; Lk. 22:17-20; I Co. 11:23-25). We may conclude from the simple instructions given to Jesus’ disciples that the meal is for all Christ-followers. For non-believers it is merely an unsatisfactory snack.

  • Taos has been chosen as TripAdvisor’s No. 1 choice among a recent list of the top “13 U.S. Towns that are Diamonds in the Rough.” To create the list, TripAdvisor looked at all 2014 vacation rental review scores across the country and identified the best-rated locations.

    In fact, TripAdvisor’s Secret Travel Tip for visitors to Taos was that it has been hailed as the most pet-friendly destination in the Southwest.

  • Michael Becker, the winner of a Lockheed Martin and New Mexico Film Foundation-sponsored film competition, debuted his short film, “Delivery from Earth” during a ceremony at the Jean Cocteau Cinema.
    The film is about the first human born on another planet and provides a futuristic look at space exploration.
    In collaboration with the New Mexico Film Foundation, Lockheed Martin created a $5,000 filmmaker grant to encourage independent film makers in New Mexico to create a short film about deep space exploration.
    The New Mexico Film Foundation and space industry experts including astronaut Bruce McCandless II, the first person to walk in space untethered to a space vehicle, evaluated 30 submissions to choose a winner.
    In addition to the film premiere, Larry Price, Lockheed Martin Orion deputy program manager, presented Keith Gardner, the chief of staff for Governor Susana Martinez, the New Mexico state flag, which recently flew on the Orion spacecraft’s first test flight, Exploration Flight Test-1 on Dec. 5, 2014.
    “We’re very proud of our state’s diverse talent, and these partnerships help showcase it,” Gardner said. “Partnerships like the New Mexico Film Foundation and Lockheed Martin help further support the advancement of art and science through ideas and technology.”

  • NEW YORK (AP) — The musicals “An American in Paris” and “Fun Home” each received a leading 12 Tony Award nominations on Tuesday, showing two very different sides of this Broadway season.
    One side is sunny — the dance-heavy stage adaptation of the 1951 musical film with George and Ira Gershwin songs — and the other moody — the dark show based on Alison Bechdel’s coming of age graphic novel about her closeted, suicidal dad.
    “It’s nice to know if something’s good, there’s room for it,” said Max von Essen, who earned a nomination for featured actor in a musical in “American in Paris.” ‘’There’s room for a smaller, darker piece and there’s room for a big, show-stopping revival.”
    Michael Cerveris got one of the dozen nods for “Fun Home” — as best leading actor in a musical — and hopes they will attract more people to see his critically acclaimed and poignant show.
    “The real value of the Tonys — and I suppose any awards — is to draw attention to something that people otherwise might not seek out. So the fact that every aspect of the production has been acknowledged is the best kind of advertising,” he said.
