  • “If you could distill the Christian faith down to one word, what would it be?” — Jake

    There are numerous candidates:
    Grace: One of my favorites, this is the unearned gift of forgiveness which God extends to any person who is willing to trust Him and accept His gift (Eph. 2:8-9).
    Hope: this term does not refer so much to feeling, desire or chance; rather, it is an expression of confident assurance in God who is trustworthy and reliable (Rom. 5:5).
    Faith: “being certain of what we do not see” (Heb. 11:1). Christians believe the invisible, mysterious God who transcends time and space has acted in history. Christian faith is not reliant upon empirical proofs — it is an expression of trusting in things not seen.
    The one word I would lean toward as perhaps most descriptive of Christianity is “love.”
    Scripture declares that God is love (I John 4:8). This is the love that “came down” at Christmas time. God so loved the world that He sent His Son into the world as a means for humans to be rescued from spiritual death (John 3:16).
    God’s love never fails (Ex. 34:6-7; Num. 14: 18; Ps. 33; 136). He demonstrated His love toward us while we were separated from Him (Rom. 5:8).

  • Looking for something to do on Sunday afternoon? The Library will screen the Ken Burns film “The Dust Bowl,” free, as a lead-in to a major exhibit, which will open in early January. “Dust, Drought, and Dreams Gone Dry,” a national traveling exhibition about the causes and aftermath of the historic Dust Bowl period, will be on display at Mesa Public Library from Jan. 7 to Feb. 20.
    “Dust, Drought, and Dreams Gone Dry” will be accompanied by a series of free library programs, including lectures and film screenings. The first film screening, of the Ken Burns Film “The Dust Bowl,” will be from 12:30-4:30 p.m. Sunday in the Upstairs Meeting Rooms at Mesa Public Library.  
    The exhibition recalls a tragic period in history — the drought and dust storms that wreaked havoc on the Great Plains in the 1930s — and explores its environmental and cultural consequences. It raises several thought-provoking questions: What caused fertile farms to turn to dust? How did people survive? What lessons were learned?
    Mesa Public Library is one of 25 sites throughout the United States and one of only two in New Mexico selected to present the exhibition and associated public programs in their communities.

  • Looking for something to do in Los Alamos once Christmas is over? Why not bring a friend to a Big Band dance?
    Monday is the annual Big Band after Christmas Dance in Los Alamos.
    The dance is free open to the public, but donations are encouraged. The dance is  from 7:30-10:30 p.m. at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish Hall, 3700 Canyon Road. Proceeds from the dance will be used to help the IHM youth group.
    Music will feature the Los Alamos Big Band with featured vocalist Rene LeClair. The Los Alamos Big Band has been playing at dances throughout northern New Mexico since 1984 under the direction of Jan McDonald, who for many years was the bandleader at Los Alamos High School.  
    The band features the danceable music of the Big Band Era such as “In The Mood,” “String of Pearls,” “Sing, Sing, Sing” and “Moonlight Serenade.” They also play other danceable music such as “Moon River,” Latin numbers like “Besame Mucho” and even “Rock Around the Clock.” Several new Christmas tunes will also be featured.
    Decorations and refreshments will be provided by the IHM Youth Group.
