  • Los Alamos resident Robert Villareal is not only on a mission of faith - but also science.

  • “Some churches still practice ‘old-fashioned’ foot washing. Is this a practice we should add to our modern expressions of faith?” — Jay

    This is indeed a very ancient (and typically Middle Eastern) practice. A gesture of hospitality, foot washing was an amenity extended to guests visiting in someone’s home. Often the servant (and sometimes the wife of the home) would perform this service while the guest was reclining at the table (see Gen. 18:4; 19:2; 24:32; 43:24).
    In the New Testament, we find a similar practice that appears to be common (Lk. 7:44; Mk. 1:7). Foot washing is mentioned in the list of criteria that characterize the faithful, serving widows in the church (I Tim. 5:10).

  • Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum both grew up in the 60s. Rozum was more of a rocker and said that he started listening to more Folk and American-roots music after driving home to Connecticut after the infamous Woodstock Festival in August 1969.
    Lewis started listening to the same in high school and college. It was rumored that she really loved the music of the Dillards, the Greenbriar Boys, Ralph Stanley, Bill Monroe and Doc Watson. Watson, a musician and artist died Tuesday.
    Every folk music fan of the 60s and 70s and those of today, seem to love him. He will likely be remembered as a legendary guitarist for at least the next 100 years.
