  • “Who was the Apostle Paul?” — Barbara  

    Readers of the New Testament often quote this man, for which there is good reason.  Thirteen of his letters written to first-century churches and Christians comprise almost half of the New Testament.
    We have glimpses of Paul’s story scattered throughout his writings. He was a Jew from the Asia Minor city of Tarsus (Acts 9:11; 22:3). Because of his Roman parentage, he was a citizen of the empire (Acts 22:25) and well educated.
    Devout in his faith, Paul zealously persecuted the new sect devoted to Jesus of Nazareth (Acts 8:1-3; Gal. 1:13-14). This sect, first called “Christian” in Antioch (Acts 11:26), was winning many converts and posed a threat to Jewish stability and way of life (Acts 4:1-7; 5:17, 33-40; 17:5-8).
    Paul never tired of describing his conversion to faith in Christ. Three accounts of his experience appear in the book of Acts alone (9:3ff; 22:6ff; 26:13ff). Following a dramatic personal encounter with the risen Jesus, Paul did an about face and became an ardent evangelist and church planter. Much of his ministry consisted of strengthening and encouraging the churches with which he was associated (Acts 14:22; 15:32, 41; 16:3; passim).  His letters contain both theological teaching and ethical instruction.

  • Whether someone is an avid or occasional hiker, it’s important to know what to do if someone is in distress on a hike. The Pajarito Environmental Education Center will be offering a wilderness first aid for day hikers course from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday at PEEC. The class, taught by Carl Gilmore, will lay the groundwork for how to help someone in need of first aid.
    During the class, Gilmore will talk about the basics of first aid and also how to deal with specific problems on the trail such as dehydration, altitude sickness, heatstroke and hypothermia. Prevention will be stressed, and there will be ample time for questions and answers.
    Gilmore has been involved in pre-hospital medicine for 49 years, as an EMT since 1971 at various levels. He has developed and directed countywide EMS agencies, been a volunteer fire fighter, and taught pre-hospital medicine with a special focus on care in frontier, rural and wilderness environments.
    Gilmore is currently active as an EMT-I with Taos Ski Valley, both as a member of the ski patrol and as a volunteer EMS. In 1992, he was awarded the title of master EMS instructor by the University of New Mexico School of Medicine’s EMS Academy.
