  • Why is “sacrifice” such a common theme in the church? — R.H.

    You astutely point out the importance of sacrifice in our life in Christ. Frequently, when moderns hear the word “sacrifice,” the mind conjures images of blood, guts and inconvenience.
    These outward things have nothing to do with sacrifice. Contrarily, love, truth and mercy are the things that make sacrifice worthy. In truth, “sacrifice” is a synonym for love and is thus necessary for all Christians.

  • On March 10, the Los Alamos Middle School Student Council put on a fundraising event. Communities members piled into the Reel Deal Theater in the early morning to watch Dr. Seuss’ “The Lorax.” The council raised almost $600 and then donated the money to LA Cares.

  • LOS ANGELES (AP) — James Cameron will be one of the stars of his next big-screen adventure, a chronicle of the expedition on which he has made record-setting ocean dives.
    Cameron said he plans a TV special for National Geographic and a 3-D theatrical release on the Deepsea Challenger missions, which included his seven-mile descent to the ocean’s deepest point in the Mariana Trench in the western Pacific. It was the deepest solo dive ever, surpassing the five-mile descent he made a few weeks earlier.
