  • “Ripples of Kindness” is the theme of the fifth annual county-wide “Women2Women” mini-conference to be held Saturday at Los Alamos Church of Christ.
    The mini-conference, which seeks to connect Los Alamos women with each other and with God, will be from 9 a.m. to noon at the church located at 2323 Diamond Drive.
    The morning of Christian fellowship, mutual encouragement, and spiritual strengthening is open to all women of the community. The event is free. Tea and finger foods will be served.
    The church began sponsoring the county-wide conference in 2013 and has followed-up each year since. The plan is to hold an annual conference for all nine “fruit of the Spirit” as listed in the Apostle Paul’s biblical letter to the Galatians, chapter 5, verses 22 and 23.  
    The event features two local women talking on ways that Christian women can show Godly kindness to each other and to those around them.

    The festival is sponsored by Theatre New Mexico, and is a part of AACTFest, a national theatre competition sponsored by the American Association of Community Theatre that is held every two years.  Competition begins at the state level, advances to Regionals, and culminates in a national festival. LALT has participated in AACTFest for many years and has hosted the New Mexico festival on many occasions, most recently in 2013.

  • Spring is eagerly anticipated, as many people look forward to enjoying the great outdoors once more. Spring is also a special time of year for practicing Christians.
    Beginning on Ash Wednesday and lasting 40 weekdays until the arrival of Easter Sunday, the Lenten season is a very important time of year for Christians. During Lent, Christians prepare for Easter by observing a period of fasting, repentance, self-denial, and spiritual discipline. While the Bible does not reference Lent, the practice of observing Lent has become a standard.
    The following focuses on each of the special days of this church season as they pertain to Western Christianity.
    Ash Wednesday
    The Day of Ashes commemorates the repentance of sin. On Ash Wednesday, Christians have ashes placed on their foreheads in the shape of a cross in recognition of their need to repent.
    Palm Sunday
    On what is now called “Palm Sunday,” Jesus Christ rode a donkey into Jerusalem while villagers welcomed him and waved palm branches. This is mentioned in each of the Biblical Gospels and occurs a week before His subsequent resurrection. Jesus possibly rode a donkey rather than a horse as a sign of peace, as a war-waging king might ride a horse.
