  • “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.

  • This week, I wanted to focus on the data from the 2013 New Mexico Risk and Resiliency Survey.
    I will also remind you that I write this column as the assets coordinator, based on the 40 Developmental Assets that when put together illustrate what traits, values, experiences to help youth grow to become successful adults.
    One of the items that received attention was the use of meth and heroin. The data reports that the use is 3.7 to 3.1, respectively. As a parent in the community, I am equally not thrilled with some of the numbers.
    I know most people won’t take the time to look up the data, so I’ll use this column and more in the future to highlight some of the data, for those that don’t have the time.
    One of the larger numbers was marijuana use, which was 20 percent. While I find that number high, you can’t look at that without the consideration of how many adults find it a recreational thing, turn a blind eye, see it as a rite of passage and it doesn’t help that our neighboring state has made it legal and available.
    What we really need to think about is what is driving them to get high, and school isn’t always the reason.
    Inhale, roll your eyes at me and read on because there is so much more.

  • The Pajarito Environmental Education Center will host two different programs regarding birds.
    “What Do You Eat with a Bill Like This?” is the idea behind the interactive program that shows how birds live and eat. The presentation will be from 1:30-2:30 p.m. Nov. 12 at the center on Orange St.
    Nature photographer and birder Steve Kaye will show photos of birds, and then he will invite the children to guess how each bird might use its bill to find food. There will be a short hike afterward.
    Kaye will then lead a photo tour of birds 7 p.m. that same day at PEEC. In this presentation, Kaye will demonstrate how his photographing birds have led to a deeper connection with nature and important lessons in joyful living.
    Kaye has been taking photos casually since 1965 and professionally since 2010. He uses these photos in talks and articles to inspire respect for nature. He is the author of a novel, four books on leadership topics, more than 400 articles and five collections of poetry. Learn more at stevekayephoto.com.
    The programs are free to attend, and no registration is required. Children must be accompanied by a parent or caregiver. For more information, visit PajaritoEEC.org, email Programs@PajaritoEEC.org, or call 662-0460.
