  • “I can’t figure how to ‘turn the other cheek’ without being walked on.” — Katie

    “Turning the other cheek” is a radical departure from our “normal” response to insult. Most of us are inclined to want to slap in return.
    Why would Jesus say that the “normal” response (even if it is justified) should not only be resisted, but should be replaced with an offer of the other cheek — and why would he make this one of His important points in the “Sermon on the Mount” (Mt. 5:38-42)?
    Consider these truths:
    Anger and revenge will get you nowhere. They only incite more anger and retaliation. Better, he said, to stop the anger cycle before it goes any further.

  • Anyone who’s ever been to Spanish Market in Santa Fe knows how popular and crowded the event can be. In fact, the crowds sometimes serve as a deterrent for some who would otherwise attend the event.
    What if there was a way to get a look at some of the artists’ work without having to actually go to Spanish Market? Imagine a smaller, indoor venue where market artists display and sell their creations.
    The Arte Norteño Tradicional Spanish Market Art Show, Sale and Reception will be from 4-8 p.m. Friday at the Nick Salazar Center for the Arts at Northern New Mexico College in Española.

  • The word “rhapsody” is so often associated with music that an art exhibit titled “Rhapsody in Blue” might inspire curiosity. One of the definitions for “rhapsody” is an ecstatic expression of feeling or enthusiasm, which makes it completely appropriate for art. There is, of course, a wave of blue through the Fuller Lodge Art Center gallery and the directions artists adventured with the theme should inspire an appreciation in viewers.
