  • Dave Gamache from Rachel’s Challenge will return to the Hawk’s nest at Los Alamos Middle School next week to show the impact one young person can make on the world.
    The Los Alamos Juvenile Justice Advisory Board will once again assist in demonstrating how using the 40 developmental assets, specifically that of empowering youth, will build in to the PBS plan at the middle school, to be safe, be responsible, be respectful.

  • I was once asked if assets was just about creating events. While I wasn’t sure how to take the question, I did ponder the answer.
    The answer is yes, if you understand two things. In my opinion, assets is about relationships and communication.
    So while you may see “an event,” called Cookies and Conversation, I’m striving to build asset number three – other adult relationships — through the event.
    When a youth has three or more adults in their lives, they tend to be more successful.
    When you see “an event,” involving students at the youth activity center, I’m working on the asset category called constructive use of time.

  • What’s with the icons? — G. P.

    In the Orthodox Church icons are not only suggested, they are required. “Icon” is Greek for “image.” We call icons “windows into heaven,” in that they lead the mind and heart to the contemplation of heavenly things.
    We believe that since the second person of the Trinity, Jesus Christ became incarnate, we must proclaim Him and that fact to the world in word, image and deed.
    One goal of the life in Christ is maintaining a moment-to-moment relationship with him.
    Iconography assists in this effort. Much of our theology originates in Hebrew theology and it is no different with icons.
