News Mediate This Feasting on turkey, yams and civil discourse Thanksgiving may provide the opportunity to launch a new tradition around the holiday table — a “talking circle” — and strengthen the bonds among family and friends. Thanksgiving may provide the opportunity to launch a new tradition around the holiday table — a “talking circle” — and strengthen the bonds among family and friends. Dinkin For three years now, staff at the National Conflict Resolution Center have spent the weeks before Thanksgiving fielding inquiries from people who are dreading yet another political fight at the dinner table. To rescue the lost tradition of loved ones celebrating a joyful feast, we suggest the revival of a time-honored ritual that has been adapted for modern use to heal fractured families, communities and organizations. If all else failed, conversations that derailed could switch over to benign subjects like football and the weather. This year, no topic is safe from partisan bickering.

Gospel of John

Polycarp was martyred c. But Polycarp also was not only instructed by apostles, and conversed with many who had seen Christ, but was also, by apostles in Asia, appointed bishop of the Church in Smyrna, whom I also saw in my early youth, for he tarried [on earth] a very long time, and, when a very old man, gloriously and most nobly suffering martyrdom, departed this life, having always taught the things which he had learned from the apostles, and which the Church has handed down, and which alone are true.

To these things all the Asiatic Churches testify, as do also those men who have succeeded Polycarp down to the present time, a man who was of much greater weight, and a more stedfast witness of truth, than Valentinus, and Marcion, and the rest of the heretics. He it was who, coming to Rome in the time of Anicetus caused many to turn away from the aforesaid heretics to the Church of God, proclaiming that he had received this one and sole truth from the apostles, that, namely, which is handed down by the Church.

There are also those who heard from him that John, the disciple of the Lord, going to bathe at Ephesus, and perceiving Cerinthus within, rushed out of the bath-house without bathing, exclaiming, “Let us fly, lest even the bath-house fall down, because Cerinthus, the enemy of the truth, is within. Then, again, the Church in Ephesus, founded by Paul, and having John remaining among them permanently until the times of Trajan, is a true witness of the tradition of the apostles.

The Olivet discourse contains timelines, apocalyptic prophesy, and descriptions of the fulfilling of prophesy. In some sense, preterists and dispensationalists choose opposite hermeneutics: The preterists take the time references literally and the apocalyptic descriptions as .

There were two saints with the same name that are usually confused, who lived almost in the same centuries: Solomon is the most famous of the Jewish magicians, and St. Cyprian is the most famous of the Christian magicians. His life mixes reality with legend and fiction. There were many stories about him that were written in the books of the occidental and oriental Christian traditions, e. In the Iberian peninsula there were many traditions about him, that were widely known centuries ago, till nowadays.

There were papers of colportage that told the story of St. Justina, and there were sold papers with the prayer of St. Cyprian against all kinds of evilness, enchantments, and the evil eye, that were very popular. There were also books attributed to St. Cyprian that taught all types of spells, for finding treasures, etc. These followed the tradition that, before his conversion, he put in a book all the spells that he learned in his years of practising the magical arts.

Excerpt from the Perfect Discourse (Asclepius 21-29)

Setting and sustaining boundaries is a skill. We might pick up pointers here and there from experience or through watching others. But for many of us, boundary-building is a relatively new concept and a challenging one. Below, she offers insight into building better boundaries and maintaining them.

Lisa Pacheco is a third generation native of Southern California. She was born in Los Angeles and presently lives in Orange County with her husband, Jeff, and their three cats. A Discourse on Dating From A to Z is her first novel.

Only small fragments of the Greek original, whose title was Perfect Discourse, have been preserved. The Latin Asclepius, sometimes attributed to Apuleius, provides us with a complete version of the work. However, a comparison of all the extant evidence proves that the Coptic is a fairly accurate translation from the Greek, whereas the Latin is a rather free adaptation.

The Coptic Excerpt from the Perfect Discourse contains the central elements of the dialogue Asclepius , with a vibrant eulogy to Egypt. More than any other Hermetic writing, this text raises the question of the links between Alexandrian culture and old Egyptian literature and civilization. We cannot fully explain the prediction of Tismegistus concerning Egypt and its gods by simply looking for hints in the historical events of the third century CE.

Female Pre-eminence: OR THE Dignity and Excellency of that Sex, above the Male. An Ingenious Discourse: Written Originally in Latine, by Henry Cornelius Agrippa, Knight.

When the Minister of Health, Aaron Motsoaledi, referred to overcrowding of hospitals by immigrants constituting a danger of the spreading of disease he fed into a common depiction of immigrants as bearers of disease. This has a dangerous history of stigmatisation-found in South Africa, Rwanda and also found with Hitler. He referred to the high percentage of immigrants in hospitals, saying that this was leading to overcrowding and heightening the possibility of the spread of disease.

He claimed that undocumented immigrants are flooding South Africa and overburdening clinics and hospitals. As often happens with such statements, Motsoaledi was quick to deny that he was xenophobic but that he believed there ought to be better controls in order to stem the tide of illegal migrants. He said that South Africa must re-evaluate its immigration policy in order to prevent so many illegal immigrants from entering the country.

In some ways, there is nothing unusual about what Motsoaledi said for it is part of a general discourse around the presence of relatively poor foreign migrants, from Africa and Asia, trying to live in South Africa. But let us unpack the layers of meaning beneath the seemingly legalistic and medical concerns.

The minister speaks of a concern with illegal immigrants yet presents no statistics. What is characteristic about the presence of immigrants generally is that constantly inflated figures are used and have been shown to be unrealistic. Common in the discourse around xenophobia is also a blurring of the distinction between legal and illegal migrants.

Hinc forte causans cur quum pauci admodum de mulierum laudibus scribere tentarunt. Nullus hactenus quod certo sciam earum supra viros eminentiam adserere ausus est. Quorum quidem sexuum discretio non nisi situ partium corporis differente constat, in quibus usus generandi diuersitatem necessaria requirebat.

Information on the Discourse on the Eighth and Ninth. Douglas M. Parrott writes (The Nag Hammadi Library in English, p. ):Evidence that Disc. was composed in Egypt is found in references to the city of Diospolis, as well as to hieroglyphic characters and gods with animal faces – all found in the section beginning 61, The designation of the mystagogue sa Hermes and Trismegistus also.

The simplest explanation of enjo kosai probably makes it sound about as literal as the above term suggests: Sometimes this payment is simply in the form of money, although for the gyaru who supposedly began the trend, gifts of expensive brand-name items are also fairly common. Contrary to the image of scantily-clad schoolgirls standing about on street corners or approaching possible targets themselves in the hopes of luring in a benefactor however, arrangements are usually made through phone or email clubs, where girls list their cellphone numbers or otherwise register online via webpages specifically geared towards enjo kosai.

However, what actually constitutes enjo kosai is still a matter of opinion. In particular, the practice of enjo kosai still seems to conjure images of the classic 90s kogal look as previously described here — shortened school skirts paired with baggy white socks held up with sock glue, artificially tanned skin, and bleached hair paired with a thick layer of pale makeup… though needless to say, this style has evolved somewhat since then. The criticism remains basically the same, however; critics condemn gyaru, particularly those engaging in enjo kosai, as shallow and obsessed with conspicuous consumption — women who support their lifestyle by leeching from either their parents or their skeevy patrons.

This much-espoused ideology places a large emphasis on women mastering domestic skills such as cooking and sewing, and fulfilling their patriotic duty by bearing children. Although this rather patriarchal philosophy began to significantly weaken following the Second World War, some historians argue that it was still very much visible up until the s and still plays a part in the Japanese consciousness today.
