Locals in rural communities across the West are concerned that some of the world's biggest coal and railroad companies will build rail lines through their backyards to haul Powder River Basin coal to the coast and on to Asia.

They fear pollution, noise and congestion. Similarly, Asian activists don't want coal-fired power plants built next to traditional fishing communities. As a result, world-wide environmental groups, grassroots groups in India and China, doctors in Oregon and Washington, local governments in rural towns -- including Mosier, Ore. Ring reports that big coal companies, including Arch Coal Inc. But stricter regulations on burning fossil fuels and the natural gas boom have decreased the need for coal in Eastern power plants.

Perhaps, not since the Civil Rights movement of the s and 60s has a restaurant been so embroiled in controversy. Choosing to eat at Chick-fil-A "is not as simple as choosing sides in a national cultural war" for Southerners, Severson reports. Southerner Justin Breen told Severson the chain is "tradition," something she writes is "laced throughout daily life in the South.

Southerners are very "proud and fiercely protective of homegrown brands," she writes. University of North Carolina 's Marcie Cohen Ferris said Southerners have strong associations with Southern-founded fast food chains because "they speak of industrialization and becoming a part of modern America, but still holding on to identity.

The vote was Congress has relatively little time to legislate before that, because it is starting a recess that will run through Labor Day. The chairmen of the House and Senate agriculture committees were scheduled to meet tonight "to begin negotiations toward a potential compromise that could be called up in September if the political winds shift enough in favor of action," Rogers writes.Thursday, August 2, St Isaac of Nineveh.

Unlike the schisms with the Oriental Orthodox Church and the Roman Patriarchate which were explicit mutual excommunications levied at the same time as charges of heresy and theological dispute, the rupture with the Church of the East was more subtle. We are dealing with two Churches—Eastern Orthodox and Church of the East--who have fallen out of communion over a long period of increasingly strained communication that has resulted in more of a mutual isolation from each other than an explicit mutual excommunication.

Saint Isaac is the tender and iconic emblem of one of the last moments when we communicated in a meaningful way. Mar Isaac of Nineveh poses the question: was he a member of the Church and if so does that mean that the church of which he was part was Orthodox in ADwhen he reposed? The great luminary of the life of stillness, Saint Isaac, was born in the early seventh century in Eastern Arabia, the present-day Qatar on the Persian Gulf.

He became a monk at a young age, and at some time left Arabia to dwell with monks in Persia. He was consecrated Bishop of Nineveh and is therefore sometimes called "Saint Isaac of Nineveh"but after five months received permission to return to solitude; he spent many years far south of Nineveh in the mountainous regions of Beit Huzaye, and lastly at the Monastery of Rabban Shabur.

He wrote his renowned and God-inspired Ascetical Homilies toward the end of his long life of monastic struggle, about the end of the seventh century. The fame of his Homilies grew quickly, and about one hundred years after their composition they were translated from Syriac into Greek by two monks of the Monastery of Mar Sabbas in Palestine, from which they spread throughout the monasteries of the Roman Empire and became a guide to the hesychasts of all generations thereafter.

He is an unquestionable father of ascetics and visionary of the grace of God, venerated from East to West. When we venerate someone as a saint and icon of salvation in the Church, it is clear that we express our trust that the person proved faithful to the Christ through his Body, the Church.

Perhaps, his veneration is a sign that in AD the Church of the East was indeed considered Orthodox. When we consider Mar Isaac within the scope and aim of this blog his person and how we venerate him in Orthodoxy and the Church of the East poses a striking question: Where do we, as Orthodox Christians, put the chronological dividing line between the saints we venerate and those we do not venerate of those who come from the Church of the East?

If Saint Isaac is a saint of the Orthodox Church are all those recognized as saints by the Church of the East prior to him, also saints? Newer Posts Older Posts Home.

Photos by Keweenaw Now unless otherwise indicated. This photo shows parts of the two contact basins and the paved contact area from which they collect water to be treated in the plant. In the background is the portal to the mine, through a decline tunnel being drilled under Eagle Rock, the tree-covered outcrop at the left.

The clean water, from the tank pictured here in the background, goes to the Multi Media Filters, and the waste stream in the tank in the foregroundgoes to the Filter Press. This photo shows the Sodium Zeolite Ion Exchange filters. Only two are ever operating at one time. The third unit is on standby; for example, in the event of maintenance the system continues to operate.

In his right hand, Blondeau is holding the contents of a Multi Media Filter and in his left he is holding the contents of the Sodium Zeolite Ion Exchange filter. These contents are placed in the clear containers so that people can see what is inside each filter.

The Multimedia filters help remove suspended solids from the water similar to the way a coffee filter removes coffee grounds. The Sodium Zeolite filters remove hardness from the water similar to household water softeners. This Reverse Osmosis system removes ions from water that has already gone through the previous steps. This storage facility is for development rock, which is all rock removed from the underground that is not considered ore. The facility features a multi-layered liner, leak detection system and sump pump to collect water which will be treated by the water treatment plant.

It is considered environmentally secure. All development rock will be returned underground as fill. The decline tunnel is 18 feet in diameter and descends under Eagle Rock at a 13 percent grade Every feet it drops 13 feet.

Humble Your Denomination. I know that I am long winded but I think you being an intellect will give me some room to wiggle. Not all teaching is for all people, theology confuses most Christians and most have no idea what they believe, and cannot explain the process of salvation if it meant their life, and it does.

You will find in the Christian faith there are many that cannot stand sound doctrine and will come up against you for teaching it. There is a whole lot that I want to teach the church but most would run away if they had sound teaching. So I give this to you that you, peradventure, that you may come into the understanding of what God has in store for you. But more importantly that you will be counted among those that can rightly discern what is the faith in which rest all your hopes.

Concerning Defending the Faith Concerning defending the faith, I try to caution against the immature Christians trying to defend the faith. And to bring all men to Christ is our first and most important goal. Yet though I would like, I am not addressing it, but it is addressed for and alternative standpoint. However, I am directly addressing the issue of respecting differences within our faith, and why we need to humble ourselves to fit into their way of doing things when we visit them.

It should be noted that I am speaking of other Christians that worship Christ differently form us. Defining Denominations. Denominations are the tools by which the devil uses to pit one Christian against another. Ye t denominations are very essential in fulfilling the depth of our worship. This in itself is what makes the world at enmity to the fullness of the Gospel. For the Christian the law is secondary and thus is always trumped by Grace and its redemption which comes through faith in Jesus Christ.

Christianity as it was in the book of Acts is able to transcend all cultures, social and financial levels and traditions this is the why we have an array of different denominations. Christianity molds to the culture without ever giving up the truth of the Gospel. Because Christianity does not deal with what we do, but having a right heart before God and faith in Christ Jesus.

The implications of our faith are not held in constraint by man, or his traditions, or even social status.

2006 Georgia Code - 48-7-29.12

So what is a denomination and what does the word mean? The word denomination means to separate by name. It is this unified foundation doctrine that make Christianity a religion. This statement is over and above any personal opinion we have of religion. When we consider this meaning and its application in Christendom we find a pure unmolested use, which is good; that is until we try to apply it to congregations like our own that profess being non-denominational.

Of course we know that this is utterly impossible both in logic and worship. Because a church without denomination would be without doctrine and their members would be ignorant to the word God. The Dichotomy of Non-Denominational. Since doctrine is nothing more than teaching, a non-denominational church would have to accept all doctrine of every church in worship.

Neither doctrine is correct, neither is incorrect even though proponents of both will bet, and are betting their salvation on being correct. This of course is true of any denomination for which we apply this simple reasoning. If baptism is a requirement for salvation as the Baptist and Roman Catholics both contend. Then e very other person who has ever put his faith in Jesus Christ but was not either Catholic or Baptist will burn eternally in hell.
