Holy Toledo

Fats Waller was a magnificent pianist. A true jazz great. Wherever he played people would come from miles around to see him. So when one night Art Tatum wlked in the club where Fats was playing, and Fats responded to his presence by saying "God is in the house tonight" it meant something. Art Tatum was not just great, he was transcendent. Praise for Art Tatum abounds. In 'Art Tatum ; The Art Of Jazz Piano' (3)Les Paul struggles to express his awe..." I can take a piano roll, and slow it down... real slow, and then you still can't figure out how he did it!" Raised right here in Toledo, Art became an undeniable Jazz legend. As his prowess was unleashed upon the planet people walked away from the piano and chose different instruments with which to express themselves. Many of these same artists exhibited greatness in their own right. But not on the piano, not after hearing Art. Jazz is an American Art form. We ought to have pride in it. Art is a hometown hero. We ought to have pride in him. Well, he was from Toledo and so am I, so I thought I'ld go have a look at the historic landmark where Art spent the bulk of his childhood. Take some pictures and just sort of soak in the vibe. I could not have been more dissapointed. Mrs. Ernistine Allen, a neighbor of the Tatums', has said "this was a respectable, middle- class neighborhood at the time," and that "Considering the times, they lived well- they had a very neat, clean house, and the kids were always well-dressed and they were very neat, the yard was always impeccably groomed and everything."(2) The Tatums took pride in their home as they were raising a young genius. Certainly we as a city can take that same pride after receiving the gift that was Art? In front of the house that sits at 1123 City Park Avenue is an…...

Jewish Holy Days

...Jewish Holy Days Danielle K. Whitaker REL/134 September 11, 2012 Roy Rehberg Jewish Holy Days Every religion has holidays or moments in time that they find sacred. These sacred days are at special times each year; the main idea is to remember what made the day what it is. In this paper will we review when the holiday is celebrated, how the religion came about historically and how the religion is practiced. Sukkot is the holiday chosen for to take a closer look, one will see how it is practiced depending the various branches of Judaism (Rich, 2011). Sukkot is one of the last three pilgrimage festivals and is significant in multiple ways: historically and agriculturally. The festival begins on the fifth after Yom Kippur; this signifies a significant change from a solemn holy day to one of much joy. The historical significance of this religion is the memorialization of the 40-year the period where the children of Israel wandered the desert and lived in temporary homes. This year Sukkot will be occurring sunset of September 30th until the 7th of October. In Leviticus 23:33 this holiday becomes instituted states that there shall be no work done on the first and second days of the holiday. When celebrating this religion there can be several ties and links to modern Christianity holidays. A sukkah is used to celebrate and is a temporary “make-shift” shelter. Afterwards each day to celebrate one must “live or reside” in the shelter, but that obligation is normally......

...Carol DeMeo November 27, 2010 HU300-16 Unit 3 Assignment Arts & Humanities Part I: Take a field trip around your neighborhood, city, or region. Find one example of architecture that catches your attention. Explain what you see in detail. Discuss the elements of form and function. Which concepts from the chapter reading are applied in this work? I live in Boca Raton, Florida and down here we have so many different buildings of sorts to look at from the high rising condos to businesses, schools, etc. Though the one place that captures my eyes and thoughts is the Mizner Park Administration Building that was built in the early 1900’s and was used as the administration and sales office for Addison Mizner. He built this building to serve as a visual example for his prospective clients of Boca Raton. The function was used well; he had offices for the engineers, an apartment for himself, restaurants to eat in. He used the form of Spain as in El Greco’s house in Toledo Spain giving it the Mediterranean design which is very appealing to many, a different place to look at from other areas in Florida. I believe with this Addison Mizner used Secular Architecture for he was able to combine function and form and the structure was used just for what he had built. Now today the administration building in Boca is occupied by a restaurant, bar and grill, Oppenheimer & Co. Office and also used for special events and gathering which is still the form an......

Holy Cow

...Holy Cow! In today’s world the issue of meat eating raises a lot of controversial questions. Many people believe that human intelligence should guide us to forbid from killing animals. This belief is far from my opinion. I was raised in an omnivore family. My father eats over five kilograms of meat every day. He’s strong and healthy. I find it funny how depressed he sometimes gets when he comes home from work and sees that mom made a soup for dinner. It seems like he’s closer to the primitive caveman than any modern human can still be, and this leads me to think that forbidding of meat eating is just as unethical as, some may think, eating it is. Humans are carnivores designed to eat meat. The evidence of thorough research proves that the human body is more of the carnivore than herbivore. The length of our digestive tract is similar to carnivores’. Our stomachs produce hydrochloric acid that breaks down a variety of food by activating protein-splitting enzymes. The HCL is nowhere to be found in herbivores’ organisms. Also, the presence of the multiple stomachs declares a tremendous difference between us and herbivores. These few and a lot more differences destroy the popular claim that people should follow a non-meat diet. The answer to what we should eat is deeply encoded in the structure of our bodies (Comparison Between). The studies also show that going back to Stone Age nutritional habits can be very beneficial. Dr. Staffan Lindeberg, an expert in this field,......

The Holy Spirit

...The Holy Spirit “…Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.” Ephesians 1:13 (see also 4:30; 2 Cor 1:22) When Jesus went back to His father, He did not abandon us as spiritual orphans in the world. He sent us his Holy Spirit into our lives. The Holy Spirit is the personal presence of God. “…I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever—the Spirit of truth.. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you.. I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you…” John 14:16-18;16:5-7 (read Acts 2:1-4). The Holy Spirit is one of the three Persons of the Godhead (Matthew 28:19). That means that although the Holy Spirit is distinct from the Father and the Son, He is indeed God (note Peter’s words in Acts 5:3-4 and John’s description of Jesus in John 1:1-2). All three Persons are actively involved in the process of salvation, as shown in the scripture: “For through [Jesus] we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.” Ephesians 2:18 THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT “We know that we live in him and he in us, because he has given us of his Spirit.” 1 John 4:13 The Holy Spirit is God’s gift to every believer. When a person personally receives Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, the Holy Spirit comes to live on the inside, imparting spiritual life. “Peter replied, “Repent and be......

The Holy Spirit

...According to the Tyndale Commentary, “The Holy Spirit is the third person of the God Head. The Holy Spirit is also, the way men receive power and help which bring us into fellowship with God”. John 15:26, tells us that when the comforter comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which comes from the Father, he shall testify of me. Jesus implies, that he has many things to tell them but they cannot bear them until the comforter (Helper)... Comes which will guide you into all truth, he will speak and show you things. The comforter will glorify Jesus and the Father. Jesus was letting the disciples know that the Holy Spirit has his personal characteristics’, which are a mind, a will and emotions. John. 16:12-16. Acts 1:2-9. The disciples saw Jesus for 40 days after the resurrection…. Jesus ate with the disciples : According to Longnecker, This was known as the Breading of Bread which is the passion of Christ. Acts 2:42-47. Acts 1:14, 24 6:1-10 10:4-9. Referring to, Christ as the Church, while giving them special instruction to wait in Jerusalem until they receive promised from the Father. .

Holy Spirit

...received a spiritual experience they call the baptism in the Holy Spirit. At the present time, hundreds of millions of believers identify themselves with the movement that teaches and encourages the reception of that experience. The global expansion of that movement demonstrates the words of Jesus Christ to His disciples that when the promised Holy Spirit came upon them, they would receive power to be His witnesses to all the world (Acts 1:5,8). The New Testament emphasizes the centrality of the Holy Spirit's role in the ministry of Jesus and the continuation of that role in the Early Church. Jesus’ public ministry was launched by the Holy Spirit coming upon Him (Matthew 3:16; Mark 1:10; Luke 3:22; John 1:32). The Book of Acts presents an extension of that ministry through the disciples by means of the empowering Holy Spirit. The most distinguishing features of the baptism in the Holy Spirit are that: (1) it is theologically and experientially distinguishable from and subsequent to the new birth, (2) it is accompanied by speaking in tongues, and (3) it is distinct in purpose from the Spirit’s work of regenerating the heart and life of a repentant sinner. Baptism in the Holy Spirit The term “baptism in the Holy Spirit” does not occur in Scripture. It is a convenient designation for the experience predicted by John the Baptist that Jesus would “baptize in [Greek en] the Holy Spirit”1 (Matthew 3:11; Mark 1:8; Luke 3:16;......

Channing Tatum

...Madison Passeri Basic Writing 2 Instructor: Vivian Papp October 18, 2013 Channing Tatum Channing Matthew Tatum was born on April 26th, 1980 in Cullman, Alabama. He is the oldest of eight children. Channing spent his childhood going between his town and Mississippi to spend summers with his grandparents (imdb.com). He grew up playing football all his life. By the time he was in ninth grade he was sent to a military boarding school. He became actively involved in football. Channing even earned an athletic scholarship to continue with his sports skill in West Virginia at Glenville State College (channingtatumunwrapped.com). Although Channing thought he had his life planned out playing football, he was wrong. I chose Channing Tatum because he’s a great actor and good role model. Playing football and the routine he had to carry out in order to maintain his scholarship just wasn’t for him (imdb.com). He made a decision to leave all he had achieved behind and start a new chapter in his life. Channing always had a passion for dancing. He started to focus on that. Channing Tatum surprisingly passed the audition looking for a back up dancer for the music video “She Bangs” by Ricky Martin (imdb.com). This led him to earn a job as a choreographer in Miami. He then met a model that introduced him to some modeling agencies. Channing didn’t really see a career in modeling, but after a few shoots he began to like it. This opened so many great......

Holy Spirit

...The “Person” of the Holy Spirit Of the three “persons” to the concept of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit is often shrouded in more mystery than the other two. While the person of God the “Father” as the creator and sustainer of creation is well established in the scripture and the history of Judaism and Christianity, and while the person of Jesus the “Son” as an actual person in the course of human history is well documented in history and scripture, the person of the Holy Spirit is a person whose characteristics are not well defined. While the responsibilities of the Holy Spirit are often documented throughout scripture, the question of how to address the Holy Spirit is sometimes vague. While there is plenty of scriptural attestation to the Holy Spirit, and while Jesus does use personal pronouns to describe the Holy Spirit, the modern depictions of the Spirit are often amorphous, lacking definition, and sometimes even pictures that do not infer personhood as much as substance, such as depictions of the Holy Spirit as a, “tounge of fire.” Some theologians have pointed to the scripture to attest to the personhood of the Holy Spirit in the same way as Jesus and the Father (with some scripture point to personal pronouns such as “he”) while others are more concerned with the function of the Holy Spirit rather than the form. This begs the question as to whether or not it truly matters what the Holy Spirit is rather than who the Holy Spirit is. The Holy Spirit is first......

...Kids about the Holy Spirit Talking with kids about the Holy Spirit can be challenging, so many church leaders avoid it as much as they can. At CentriKid Camps in 2013, we focused on the truths that God is with us from creation, He is with us in the person of Jesus Christ, and He is with us through the Holy Spirit, and our response is that we follow Him. We felt it was important to give kids age-appropriate lessons with some tangible object lessons so they could grow in their understanding of the Holy Spirit. Here are some passages and illustrations from CentriKid to help you teach kids about the Holy Spirit: 1. Revelation 21:3 - “God’s dwelling is with humanity, and He will live with them.” 2. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 – Your body is a sanctuary of the Holy Spirit. Define sanctuary, and help kids know that when we give God control of our lives, He makes our body a holy or sacred place. 3. Acts 2:1-3 – Appearance as flaming tongues of fire. Illustration: Empty gas can (since most folks at your facility might be upset if you started a fire in the children’s department). 4. John 3:8 – The wind that blows where it pleases. Illustration: Box fan. Cut it on, have a child with long hair stand in front of it and you’ll be able to quickly illustrate seeing the effects of the wind, but not seeing the wind itself. 5. 1 Kings 19:11-12 – Soft whisper. Illustration: Piece of rope that gently tugs at your heart As you teach kids about the Holy Spirit, move......

Holy Eucharist

...on earth and wants to see each of us sitting at His dining table someday in heaven. *WHAT IS HOLY COMMUNION? Holy Communion is the receiving of Jesus Christ in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. > Just as it is necessary to nourish our bodies with material food, so also it is necessary to nourish our souls with spiritual food. Our Divine Savior so loved us that He gave us Himself in the sacrament of the Holy Eucharist; He gave us His own body and blood as food for our souls. *WHAT ARE THE CHIEF EFFECTS OF RECEIVING A WORTHY COMMUNION? The chief effects of a worthy Holy Communion are: 1.) A closer union with Our Lord and a more fervent love of God and of our neighbor; 2.) An increase of sanctifying grace; 3.) Preservation from mortal sin the and remission of venial sin; 4.) The lessening of our inclinations to sin and the help to practice good works. How should we prepare ourselves for Holy Communion? We should prepare ourselves for Holy Communion by thinking of Our Divine Redeemer whom we are about to receive, and by making fervent acts of faith, hope, love, and contrition. (a) We should be neat, clean, and modest in our appearance, and respectful and reverent in our manner. (b) Each time we receive Holy Communion we should try to be as devout and fervent as if it were the only Communion of our lives. *WHAT SHOULD WE DO AFTER RECEIVING THE HOLY COMMUNION? After Holy Communion we should spend some time adoring Our Lord, thanking Him, renewing our promises of......

Holy Lives

...Holy Lives If you put a buzzard in a pen six or eight feet square and entirely open at the top, the bird, in spite of his ability to fly, will be an absolute prisoner. The reason is that a buzzard always begins a flight from the ground with a run of ten or twelve feet. Without space to run, as is his habit, he will not even attempt to fly, but will remain a prisoner for life in a small jail with no top. The ordinary bat that flies around at night, a remarkable nimble creature in the air, cannot take off from a level place. If it is placed on the floor or flat ground, all it can do is shuffle around helplessly and, no doubt, painfully, until it reaches some slight elevation from which it can throw itself into the air. Then, at once, it takes off like a flash. A Bumblebee if dropped into an open tumbler will be there until it dies, unless it is taken out. It never sees the means of escape at the top, but persists in trying to find some way out through the sides near the bottom. It will seek a way where none exist, until it completely destroys itself. In many ways, there are a lot of people like the buzzard, the bat, and the bee. They are struggling about with all their problems and frustrations, trials and tribulations, heart-breaks and head-aches...stressed out, strung out and on the verge of giving out, not realizing that the power of God to withstand every situation is inherent within you and the answer to life's most difficult problems is just above you........
