  • The Los Alamos Arts Council announces its next Brown Bag Performance Series with Karen Hall and the Santa Fe Woodwind Quintet.
    The show starts at noon June 3 in the Pajarito Room at Fuller Lodge.
    Performance includes “Musical Poems and Memories,” Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson, by composer Aaron Copland, arranged by James Preuss.
    Copland remains one of the most identifiably “American” of composers. He is probably best known for his ballet scores Appalachian Spring, Rodeo and Billy the Kid.  From 1949-1950, he composed the intense song cycle “Twelve Poems of Emily Dickinson.” This collection constitutes the summit among his works for voice providing compositional maturity and a deeply evocative style, characterized by true, sober and deep emotion. Copland chose texts expressing the main themes of Emily Dickinson’s poetry: nature, life, love, time and eternity, showing profound sensitivity and understanding of the poems.

  • “Evangelism’ seems to be a word that brings up bad vibes with a lot of people, even Christians. Does the Bible say much about this topic?”— Stephen

    The New Testament says a great deal about it. The term is a transliteration of the Greek word that means “good news.”
    Evangelism was important to Jesus. He told His followers that they should be about telling the good news of His coming and of the salvation available in Him (Mt. 28:19-20; Ac. 1:8).
    He deliberately sent out His disciples to proclaim the good news (Mk. 6:7ff; Lk. 10:1ff). He declared that more people would be needed for this task (Mt. (:37; Lk. 10:2).
    Evangelism is a natural response for individuals who have experienced a personal encounter with Christ.
    In practice, evangelism is less a program and more a matter of conversation along the way. Jesus talked to all kinds of people, wherever He was, in whatever circumstance He found Himself.
    Even if He was on His way to somewhere else, even if he was tired, hungry, and close to cranky (Mk. 6:30-34), He turned His attention to the person in front of Him.

  • The Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s Nature Playtimes are one of its most popular programs.
    Offered free to families every Monday morning, the Playtimes combine fun, developmentally appropriate stories, songs, crafts and activities with time outside enjoying nature.
    Albuquerque’s Albert I. Pierce Foundation recognizes the worth of this program and the value it brings to families, and has given PEEC $5,000 to support it.
    During a recent Nature Playtime, families explored an ant theme. They heard a story comparing the families of ants to families of children.
    Children created egg-carton ants with clothespin jaws, and hunted outside for “food” to grasp in the jaws and take back to the anthill. They examined the harvester ant display in the nature center and observed how busy the ants were digging tunnels, finding food and keeping their home clean.
    They discovered how ants leave trails for one another, and then they followed a trail to an anthill fort, where children role-played ants. As ants, they took care of their eggs, foraged for food, worked together to carry large objects and escaped predators.
