  • “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.

  • The Los Alamos High School Class of 2015 is set to walk the stage on Saturday and while the students may be thinking ahead about their futures, they are also thinking of the students they leave behind, not just at LAHS, but throughout the district.
    Each year a graduating class bequeaths a gift to the school that is purchased through funds raised throughout their time at LAHS.
    This year, the class of 2015 has elected to benefit the future ’Toppers by offering resources that will help all seven of the Los Alamos Public School sites through education.
    “The kindness and compassion of the senior class of 2015, is really quite remarkable,” said LAHS Principal Dr. Debbie Belew-Nyquist. “The idea that their gift can benefit the students of the entire district demonstrates their well roundedness.”
    Display cases have been purchased for the five elementary schools and Los Alamos Middle School that will house resources on a wide ranging area of topics including nutrition, exercise, bullying, how to make friends and ways to handle stress.

  • Gov. Susana Martinez is apparently OK with tripling the state’s medical marijuana harvest, but adamantly opposed to growing hemp.
    Why?
    The variety of cannabis commonly known as “industrial hemp” is cousin to marijuana, but without the psychoactive components. You could burn a bushel in your bong without inducing anything more than a dull headache.
    Although lacking medicinal value or recreational appeal, hemp is an enormously useful plant. The seeds are a high-protein food source, and the oil can be used in cooking as well as in paint, wax and numerous other applications. The fiber from the stalks is similar to linen and is used in clothing, insulation, carpeting, paper and rope.
    Hemp could be “a hugely beneficial cash crop” for New Mexico farmers, according to Stuart Rose, founder of the Bioscience Center, a business incubator in Albuquerque.
    It requires much less water than cotton and literally grows like a weed, without expensive pesticides and fertilizer.
    “You can grow twice the value of alfalfa for half the water,” Rose said.
