  • “A friend asked me if I spoke in tongues.  I have heard of this but am unaware of what it actually is and if it is something I should do.”
    — Mike

    The New Testament gives several accounts of people who, when “filled with the Spirit,” spoke in a language that was not their own. In one instance, this language (actually, languages spoken by several different people) were known languages recognized by others for whom the language was native. This is the well-known event at Pentecost (Acts 2:1-12).

  • BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Queen Elizabeth II’s dad, Albert — the gentle, stammering Duke of York — never was meant to be king. And from Hollywood’s early honors this season, a drama based on his life never seemed destined as heir-apparent at the Academy Awards.
    Yet “The King’s Speech” took a step closer to the best-picture crown Tuesday, leading the Oscars with 12 nominations and gaining momentum against the online chronicle “The Social Network,” which had previously ruled the awards season.

  • With so many restaurants in Santa Fe, it’s hard to pick just one. If your trips to the City Different only happen on weekends like mine do, weeding one favorite out from the list can be a task, so when it comes to trying a new place, it better be pretty enticing otherwise I’d just rather stick to what I know.
    On a recent Sunday jaunt down Cerrillos Road, I noticed that Weck’s had opened right next door to Dion’s.
