  • “What is the difference between infant baptism and believer’s baptism?” — Ray

    Infant baptism has its roots in the Middle Ages when the church was faced with a combination of the doctrine of original sin, a high infant mortality rate, and hard questions from parents who feared for the mortal soul of their children.
    The Bible gives no express instruction to baptize infants.
    However, some Christian traditions have gone to great lengths to draw from the juxtaposing of old covenantal texts with New Testament passages a justification for the practice (e.g., Noah and I Pet. 3:20-21; Abraham and Col. 2:11-12; Moses and I Cor. 10:1-2). Jesus’ blessing of the children (Mt. 19:13-15) is also construed as an argument that the children of believing parents are included in the covenant and thus should be baptized.
    In some Christian traditions, infant baptism carries sacramental import and as such confers a saving grace.
    Believer’s baptism is for one who is old enough to accept forgiveness of sin for himself, to express faith consciously, and to demonstrate some understanding of the meaning of baptism before he is baptized.

    Restaurant Week returns to Santa Fe

  • Competitors of all ages are once again waxing up their snow shovels for the world famous Angel Fire Resort Shovel Race Championships, presented by Lowe’s Valley Market. Racers from all over the country compete by sitting on the scoop of a standard aluminum snow shovel, handle pointed downhill, and then lift their hands and feet to allow gravity to take them for a ride. Each rider gets two shots to clock the fastest time down the front of the Angel Fire ski mountain and top speeds regularly exceed 60 miles per hour. The practice session will be Friday, with the competition scheduled for Saturday.  
    Shovel racing began as a simple contest in the 1970s when lift operators would ride their shovels down the mountain at the end of their shifts.
    “Three hundred sixty three days of the year Angel Fire Resort focuses on offering guests a full mountain of winter and summer activities, but for these two days we also give our guests something unique to watch and cheer for,” said Dan Swanson, director of marketing, Angel Fire Resort. “We are one of only a handful of resorts world-wide where they offer Shovel Racing as a competitive sport.”
    Racing categories include:
    Little Scoops (ages 6-9)
    Youth (ages 10-13)
    Junior (ages 14-17)
    Women In Media
    Adult Women (ages 18+)

  • Estrella Del Norte Vineyard, near Santa Fe will use one of Santa Fe’s iconic figures, Zozobra, on their wine label “Zozobra Red — Red Table Wine.”
    Use of the Zozobra brand will help promote more awareness about one of the community’s largest events that funds much of the good work the Kiwanis Club is able to do for Santa Fe.
    Zozobra will have his debut into the Santa Fe wine scene following the bottling and labeling at Estrella Del Norte Vineyard by the end of February when it will be released. Tastings as well as an opportunity to purchase the wine at the vineyard estate is available. The winery is 15 minutes north of Santa Fe in the Pojoaque/Nambé valley.
    The Kiwanis Club of Santa Fe is an important part of the international Kiwanis Club organization. Originally formed on April 25, 1921, the club has had a significant impact on the children and community of Santa Fe.
    In addition to helping more than 155 students with more than $450,000 for college scholarships, the club has also had an important hand in many community service projects, such as the organization of the annual Pinewood Derby, building a computer lab for St. Catherine’s Indian school, and the Kamp Kiwanis camping facility and program for handicapped children.

  • Best Picture. Best Director. Best Writing. Best Art Direction. Best Film Editing. “The Apartment” (1960) swept the 33rd Annual Academy Awards. Decide how it holds up to contemporary standards on Thursday when the film reignites the big screen at Mesa Public Library.
    One of the last black-and-white films to win an Oscar for Best Picture, director Billy Wilder’s “The Apartment” is a quiet comedic drama about a man, C.C. Baxter (the young, ungrumpy Jack Lemmon), who has devised a creative if ethically misguided way to distinguish himself from his 32,000 or so co-workers at Consolidated Life, an insurance company in New York.
    Baxter has been lending his cozy, well-located apartment to the higher-ups at his office for their extramarital enjoyments, hoping they’ll put in a good word for him with Mr. Sheldrake (Fred MacMurray) up on the 27th floor.
    But as the old gypsy curse says, be careful what you wish for. When his plan succeeds, not only does he have the usual problems associated with avoiding his own domicile in the middle of the night, but Sheldrake’s girl is someone Baxter knows and would really like to have in his apartment sans Sheldrake.
