  • Paintings, illustrations and photography by artist Michelle Grove Griffin will be on display during the month of May at Mesa Public Library. Her work has been shown previously in several of the Fuller Lodge Art Center shows, as well as in various galleries.
    Grove Griffin is a teacher at Los Alamos High School and an adjunct professor at Northern New Mexico College in Española.
    “The artworks I create have been founded on influences in my life and things I like to do. I like to paint, draw and photograph things like fish, trees and anything that surrounds my world that makes life beautiful,” Grove Griffin said. “I am influenced by my upbringing in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, my parents and experiences I have had. I have also always been inspired by my passions in life. Teaching, fishing, photography, rock climbing, skiing, biking, my dogs, where I came from, the goals I have in life, treasure, how we connect to the world ... etc. It’s all about the process, the sequence of thoughts and events — how I arrive to a finished work. The colors and patterns found in animals, rocks, plants, shadows, words, thoughts, feelings, effort, time and energy is what I make my work about.”

  • “Should individuals be excluded from communion just because they are not members of the church in which it is being observed?” — David

    If you thought the topic of baptism generated high-energy responses, you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. Just mention communion. A great deal of blood has been spilled among Christians over the former — but immeasurable words of theological debate have been penned regarding the latter.
    In this brief space we cannot get into transubstantiation, consubstantiation, and related views of the New Testament teachings on the supper. Neither can we delve into the specific nature of the efficacy of the event, whether sacramental, salvific, or symbolic. All of these topics do relate to your question, however, because various Christian traditions have, rightly or wrongly, successfully rendered communion as well as baptism into actions of the church that divide believers.
    So, let’s look at the texts (Mt. 26:26-29; Mk. 14:22-25; Lk. 22:17-20; I Co. 11:23-25). We may conclude from the simple instructions given to Jesus’ disciples that the meal is for all Christ-followers. For non-believers it is merely an unsatisfactory snack.
