The theme of this lesson is faith.

Please listen to the 2 songs I am about to play about faith.

The first song is only believe by Yolanda Adams.

The second song is if you just believe song by Marvin Sapp.

Now that you heard faith based songs let these songs about faith minister to you, I am going to ask each of you one by one what you think faith is.

• The bible defines faith as the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen. For examples:

- I dream of becoming so rich, that I have more than enough money to sink a battleship. I asked God to make me rich and believe it will happen although I have not seen it yet. This is an example of faith.

- I dream of visiting God’s throne room to sit upon his lap and receive his loving-kindness and feel it in my heart. I asked God for this and I already believe I am going to get it although I have not seen it yet. This is another example of faith.

- I dream of going to heaven young without ever getting old. I asked God to make this dream come true and I believe it will although it hasn’t yet. This is also an example of faith.

- I dream of getting a masters degree level education and asked God to help make this dream come true. I believe it will come true although it hasn’t yet. This is an example of faith too.

Would anyone of you by show of hands care to tell a story that exemplifies faith. A story in which you asked God for something and believed you would get it before you saw it.

Reply by Saying Very Good After Receive Stories from Kids.

Here are some stories of mine that exemplify faith.

I was outside waiting at a bus stop to get a ride home from a job interview in the winter of 2011. The cold was so fierce that I felt like I would get frost bite on my toes if I stood outside waiting for a bus any longer. So, I asked the…...

...Programme is a great idea. And why do I say it’s a great idea? When we look at the 21st century, many people say that it is going to be the century of knowledge, but people who think more deeply about it say it is going to be the century of mind. Just think about it. Can you imagine that with the demographic advantage that India has, with 55% of its population being less than 25 years old, you are talking actually in terms of something like 600 million odd young minds shaping the destiny of this country. So, Mr. Handa, what a powerful theme you have selected for designing and defining the future of this great nation. For this, I will really like to congratulate you. There was never any doubt about the quality of the Indian mind. Today, we talk about the digital economy. Digital economy would not be there, if binary digits were not there. And what are binary digits? It is zero and one. And who discovered the zero? It was an Indian mind. So, I think India and Indian mind can rightfully take the credit for laying the foundation of the digital economy. Yesterday, we saw this great spectacular opening of the Olympics. We have sent a huge contingent for, hopefully, getting us some Olympic medals. You also saw today’s headlines in the morning papers. Not very inspiring! And the record shows that very rarely have we won a bronze medal, a silver medal, let alone a gold medals yes, we won the gold medals at a time when we were world champions in hockey for a number of years...

...------------------------------------------------- Philosophy Western philosophy Some would consider the study of "nothing" to be foolish, a typical response of this type is voiced by Giacomo Casanova (1725–1798) in conversation with his landlord, one Dr. Gozzi, who also happens to be a priest, “ | As everything, for him, was an article of faith, nothing, to his mind, was difficult to understand: the Great Flood had covered the entire world; before, men had the misfortune of living a thousand years; God conversed with them; Noah had taken one hundred years to build the ark; while the earth, suspended in air, stood firmly at the center of the universe that God had created out of nothingness. When I said to him, and proved to him, that the existence of nothingness was absurd, he cut me short, calling me silly.[3] | ” | However, "nothingness" has been treated as a serious subject worthy of research for a very long time. In philosophy, to avoid linguistic traps over the meaning of "nothing", a phrase such as not-being is oftenemployed to unambiguously make clear what is being discussed. Parmenides One of the earliest western philosophers to consider nothing as a concept was Parmenides (5th century BC) who was a Greek philosopher of the monist school. He argued that "nothing" cannot exist by the following line of reasoning: To speak of a thing, one has to speak of a thing that exists. Since we can speak of a thing in the past, it must still exist (in some sense) now and......

THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER part 1 August 25, 1991 Dear friend, I am writing to you because she said you listen and understand and didn't try to sleep with that person at that party even though you could have. Please don't try to figure out who she is because then you might figure out who I am, and I really don't want you to do that. I will call people by different names or generic names because I don't want you to find me. I didn't enclose a return address for the same reason. I mean nothing bad by this. Honest. I just need to know that someone out there listens and understands and doesn't try to sleep with people even if they could have. I need to know that these people exist. I think you of all people would understand that because I think you of all people are alive and appreciate what that means. At least I hope you do because other people look to you for strength and friendship and it's that simple. At least that's what I've heard. So, this is my life. And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be. I try to think of my family as a reason for me being this way, especially after my friend Michael stopped going to school one day last spring and we heard Mr.......

...Nothing – A mere seven characters long word but with such significance in our lives, which cannot be ignored. It has such diverse number of uses in our lives which we cannot even imagine. Everything, from us to the whole universe, started with this one word. It is the beginning of everything. As we can say, the step zero of all the processes is always ‘Nothing’. If something is already there then it cannot re-originate. Nothing existed before the Big Bang happened, which led to the creation of the universe. Now as the universe is already there, it cannot be re-created without it first being destroyed which will again lead it back to the step zero. It is also the most widely used word by us nowadays. ‘Nothing’ is what we do most of the times. It just may be the profession of a huge number of people in the world. Some love doing it and some are forced to it because of certain circumstances. To speak of it, at some point of time or the other all of us want to just sit back, relax and do nothing. This is what ultimately everyone’s goal is, this is what we work hard for all our lives. We all study hard to make a good career so that we can earn a lot of money and then just sit back and enjoy without having to do anything, which means being happily retired. It can also be used to hide our feelings and thoughts from the others. When we don’t want to discuss or talk about anything, we simply sum it all up in just this one word and the topic ends. Another form in which this word...

...them. * One in the eye 19 December 2013 If you say something is one in the eye for someone, it means that something is a big disappointment or a defeat for them - but you are pleased about their disappointment. Examples: I got the job! That's one in the eye for John – I've never liked him and I was sure he would get the position. Ha! Our winning the championship was one in the eye for our rival team – they are always boasting about their skills. * Get your skates on! 17 December 2013 If you tell someone to get your skates on it means that you want them to do something quickly or to hurry up. Examples: You'd better get your skates on, or we are going to miss the bus! Get your skates on! We've got a lot of work to do today. * To tower over 12 December 2013 To tower over someone or something means to be much taller than that person or thing. Examples: Joan towers over her husband when she wears her smart high heel shoes. The new skyscraper towers over the buildings downtown. * To branch out 10 December 2013 If someone is branching out it means they are starting to do something new or differently from the way they usually do. Examples: Jane has been working as a journalist since she left university but now she's branching out and writing a novel. The supermarket has branched out and started selling clothes as well as food. * Ask for the moon 5 December 2013 To ask for the moon means to make unreasonable demands for things,......

...There's nothing to say about nothing. Still, some people make a fuss about it. Among spiritual seekers, there's a lot of talk about "becoming nothing". On this site about nothing, we're not going to talk about "nothing", because "nothing" can't be talked about. When people talk about "nothing", they're not really talking about nothing, they're talking about something. It's not a real nothing, it's a "nothing" they can hold in their mind. It's a nothing that feels like something, perhaps a black hole, perhaps a lonely place. They have words for it, perhaps "void", "emptiness", "nothingness". Nothingness is not nothing. It comes and it goes, so it's got to be something. You can look at it. You can hold it. You can throw it out. And when you throw it out, what's left?... ...And that's all we're going to say about that. This little introduction has nothing to do with the articles on the site. It's just here to confuse the philosophers and perhaps intrigue a few people with a genuine interest in nothing. This is a site about nothing. We hope you enjoy it. Perhaps you'd like to start with a 25-second playful video clip about a show about nothing? love numbers. And I have always loved computing. That's the whole reason computers have had such a strong pull on me since 1981, when my mom's boyfriend decided I should have my first computer: a Sinclair ZX 81.

...Nothing In old American Western movies, black is the color worn by the antagonist while white represents the purity and goodness of the hero. While the scenarios and dialogue of Western films may be archaic, the symbolism of light and dark colors is still prevalent today; the connotations of a dim corner or a black cat contrast sharply against white images of angels or wedding brides. Evolutionally, humans view the sun, the most basic source of food and thus survival, as a crucial source of light, warmth, and protection. With darkness comes coldness and a fear of the unknown. In the dark, man is reminded of how alone and insignificant a life is in the vast universe. Ernest Hemingway often employs darkness in his works to convey the meaningless of existence that looms over man. Not totally void of optimism, his stories also present rays of hope that reach the reader often through literal descriptions of light. Such is the case in Hemingway’s short story, “A Clean, Well-lighted Place,” which focuses on two waiters at a café. The young waiter impatiently hurries along the last customer, an old man drinking alone, while the older waiter sympathizes with the perceptibly forlorn man. What appears to be a tale of despair and loneliness actually offers hope and strength through a quiet hero. Hemingway’s “A Clean, Well-lighted Place” focuses on the nothingness of existence and invokes in the reader a grim realization of the inevitable loneliness of life. However, hope......

...as a comprehensive personality theory are revealed. At the same time, its merits when restricted to certain areas of psychology and treatment of disorders are discussed. For as long as human beings can remember, they have always been interested in what makes them who they are and what aspects of their being set each of them apart from others of their species. The answer according to behaviorists is nothing more than the world in which they grew up. Behaviorism is the theory that human nature can be fully understood by the laws inherent in the natural environment. As one of the oldest theories of personality, behaviorism dates back to Descartes, who introduced the idea of a stimulus and called the person a machine dependent on external events whose soul was the ghost in the machine. Behaviorism takes this idea to another level. Although most theories operate to some degree on the assumption that humans have some sort of free will and are moral thinking entities, behaviorism refuses to acknowledge the internal workings of persons. In the mind of the behaviorist, persons are nothing more than simple mediators between behavior and the environment (Skinner, 1993, p 428). The dismissal of the internal workings of human beings leads to one problem opponents have with the behavioral theory. This, along with its incapability of explaining the human phenomenon of language and memory, build a convincing case against behaviorism as a comprehensive theory. Yet although these......
