    Why are Orthodox so serious when it comes to church? — JA

     

    This is a great question. 

    One reason is found in the fact that church is about God alone. We are serious about church because we are serious about God. 

    We believe God is the holy one because he is the omnipotent, omnipresent, omniscient one who “first loved us.” 1 Jn 4:19. 

    A second reason lies in a mystery: God became fathomable and finite as Jesus Christ. God is serious business because love is serious business.

    Correction

  • Jobless rate falls as more give up looking for work

    WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. employers added 96,000 jobs last month, a weak figure that could slow any momentum President Barack Obama hoped to gain from his speech to the Democratic National Convention.

    The unemployment rate fell to 8.1 percent from 8.3 percent in July, the Labor Department said Friday. But that was only because more people gave up looking for work. The government only counts people as unemployed if they are actively searching.

    The government also said 41,000 fewer jobs were created in July and June than first estimated. The economy has added just 139,000 jobs a month since the beginning of the year, below 2011’s average of 153,000.

    The report was weak throughout. Hourly pay fell, manufacturers cut the most jobs in two years and the number of people in the work force dropped to its lowest level in 31 years.

  • False Alarm
  • Manager accuses employee of embezzlement

    No one knows for sure what’s going on at the Quizno’s Deli, located at 172 Central Park Square. 

    According to police, trouble at the eatery began Aug. 28 when the store’s manager, Pedro Diaz, reported to police that one of the sandwich shop’s employees allegedly stole money from the store.

    The alleged theft happened Aug. 27 when an employee named Andrew Martinez showed up at the store complaining that his paycheck bounced. 

    According to Diaz, Martinez quit working at the store Aug. 8 and was given his last check Aug. 10. Martinez apparently cashed it Aug. 13. 

  • DOE lengthens comment period

    WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration has given the public an additional 15 days and a fourth hearing in New Mexico to comment on the Draft Surplus Plutonium Disposition Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. 

    The Draft Supplemental EIS analyzes the potential environmental impacts of alternatives for the disposition of 7.1 metric tons (MT) of additional weapons-usable plutonium from pits that were declared surplus to national defense needs in 2007 but were not included in DOE’s prior decisions as well as 6 MT of surplus, weapons-usable non-pit plutonium. 

  • Dept. of Public Utilities investigating gas outage

    It is ironic that the Department of Public Utilities (DPU) was attempting to install an alternative high-pressure natural gas line to North Mesa to reinforce service to the area when the installation caused the line to depressurize Wednesday. Crews have been working ever since to restore service to approximately 800 customers.

    According to DPU Manager John Arrowsmith, utility staff believes they have determined the cause of the incident, but will need to run tests to confirm their assessment. 

    “A year or so ago, we installed slam-shut valves in two pressure reducing valve stations on North Mesa as a safety measure,” Arrowsmith said.

    “About two weeks ago a contractor putting in a fiber optics cable drilled through a low-pressure line on North Mesa. The punctured line was isolated and replaced.

    Dow Jones industrial futures, which had been up before the report, fell soon after it was released.
