  • “I’m confused.  Should I make plans for the future or should I just live today and trust God for tomorrow?” — Anne

    The simple answer is “Yes!” Today is all you have, so make the most of every opportunity to live, love, learn, serve, share, celebrate, work well and play freely.
    Little is gained by worrying excessively about a tomorrow that you cannot control (Matt. 6:25, 34).
    At the same time, life in this world requires (for most of us, at least) that we prepare for the future, planning for our education and career, saving some money and investing wisely and setting something aside for later years of life.
    Our plans may and often do change and change presents challenges of its own, but some kind of plan is typically better than no plan at all.
    The question goes beyond simply whether or not we have a plan, however. The issue also involves matters of attitude and faith. James warns against making plans in a cocky, cavalier fashion (James 4:13-16).
    We are not told in this text to give up our plans and live only for today, but we are reminded that we neither know the future nor control the length of our days. Thus, we should face the future with a little humility and a lot of faith.  James enjoins us to seek the will of the One who holds the future.

  • ‘Bless Me, Ultima’ to be screened in NM after all

    SANTA FE — A movie based on Rudolfo Anaya’s iconic New Mexico-based novel “Bless Me, Ultima” will be screened in the state after all.
    The Albuquerque Journal reports (http://bit.ly/PYalrp) that the Santa Fe Independent Film Festival has scheduled a screening of the film Oct. 17 to kick off the film festival.
    The move comes after producers of the film announced it was to premiere in El Paso, Texas at the historic Plaza Theatre, although the novel is set in the small town of Guadalupe, N.M., during World War II, and the film was entirely shot in New Mexico.
    The novel follows 6-year-old Antonio Marez, and a curandera named Ultima.
    “Bless Me, Ultima” has been credited with sparking the Mexican-American literature movement. It has been banned in some Arizona schools.
