  • “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.

  • 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.

  • Beginning in late May, master pianist and storyteller Richard Glazier will be featured in a new PBS special, his third for the network.
    Recorded in 2014, “From Broadway to Hollywood with Richard Glazier” features Glazier’s piano talents as well as interviews with several artists having connections to the Golden Age of music. The program airs on PBS stations around the country, including KNME TV on May 31.
    “It will continue to air on PBS affiliates over the next three years and I’ll be appearing during the pledge drives,” said Glazier, who lives in Sacramento, California.
    Unlike most conventional concert pianists, Glazier draws on his background and connections with legendary figures in American Popular Song, such as Ira Gershwin, to blend recitals with stories of artists who influenced his career.
    “I’ve always told interesting stories about the composers, the performers, the shows, the movies—they all enhance the concert experience,” Glazier said. “I also add audio/visual components showing rare clips, photos and interviews that I’ve done.”

  • TOURISM Santa Fe, the Santa Fe University of Art and Design (SFUAD), and creative advertising agency Fuseideas announce a new collaborative, yearlong intern program. The program offers internships in photography, writing and film, and provide students with exposure to top industry professionals. Students will also participate in hands-on opportunities, working at the nexus of a leading destination marketing organization and a creative agency, branding and sharing the unique experiences of Santa Fe to a variety of international audiences.
    Throughout the program, SFUAD interns will interact with agency managers and creatives, shadow professional photography and video shoots, and present and create content to be published on TOURISM Santa Fe social media platforms, paid media executions and santafe.org. These hands-on experiences provide invaluable career insights and enable students to develop portfolios for professional employment after graduation.
    “Santa Fe is a city of preeminent creative talent,” said Javier Gonzales, Mayor of Santa Fe. “The SFUAD internship program is the latest in our ongoing efforts to develop and retain local talent by delivering the national exposure and growth opportunities young people need to help tourism and other leading industries excel.”

  • Bradbury part of Blue Star program

    The Bradbury is again partnering with the National Endowment for the Arts, Blue Star Families Foundation and the Department of Defense in the Blue Star Museums program to host active duty military personnel and their families from Memorial Day, May 25 through Labor Day Sept. 7.
    “We are excited and proud to be a part of the 2,000 museums throughout the United States participating in the Blue Star Museum program to thank our nation’s military personnel — and their families — for their service. The museum already has a free-admission policy, but we’re participating in this program to raise awareness of the importance of honoring members of the U.S. armed services, as we share our collective history,” said Bradbury Science Museum Director Linda Deck.
    Blue Star Museums are more than 2,000 museums nationwide that offer free admission to active duty military personnel, including National Guard and Reserve, as well as their families, from Memorial Day through Labor Day.
