The atmosphere at Cerritos Mission Church is great for Christian worship. It is so peaceful and tranquil that I can easily connect with God and improve my relationship with him through prayer. This particular church is always open to the public and is an excellent place for contemplating. Although the atmosphere is amazing, the buildings of this church are very old and run down. Just like most churches, the income a church receives is by its members and donations from the community.
I also try to help others by guiding them to a good decision but not telling them the right one so that they have the choice in their hands. I currently represent the “Service” Trait of NJHS by participating in Art Club. Art Club is a club that makes things like ornaments and valentines to raise money to donate to local organizations like the Tranquility Animal Sanctuary. We do service projects that also include donating ceramics to “Empty Bowls” charity event to help raise money to feed the homeless. We also got to eat what an average homeless person’s intake of food for a day.
Melba would not have taken the time to write to God had she not had faith he was listening to her. After almost being raped Melba, turning to God, prays for her attacker instead of being angry. Once again her faith is demonstrated here when she prays, and relies on God. On her first day at Central High
There is a strong emphasis put on keeping those in the fold of the Church and going out and recruiting the heathens who do not come to Church. Instead Billings has so graciously broaden the prospective to show the Church that the people who are not coming should still be a part of the Church community and their needs are just as important as those inside the Church. The greatest opportunities for the Church are when the ‘outsiders’ decide they have a reason to come and use the Church as a resource. They may need the Church for a baptism, a wedding, or a funeral; these opportunities are great to show that the Church bears life and is there to support them. The present society appears to have an identity predicament with the Church, because there is a tremendous amount of self-help propaganda in this society; therefore they simply do not care about a commitment with the Church, but can read about how to be better people in the comfort and safety of their own homes.
Well, there are many students that do not head straight home after classes end, like the student mentioned above. Some stay after to discuss things with classmates, speak with their professors in their office, study, or even grab a late meal. Also, during two weeks of every semester, Oviatt Library has extended hours to 11:00 pm, even on Fridays. If a highly popular building is open to students, how can a safety service not
Clara immersed herself in church work to “keep busy” and help the community around her but never had “deep religious feelings” towards Universalism. She had trouble in the idea of the joy there should be in life with the amount of grief that was present in the lives of those around her. Although Barton never claimed to have no faith, she described herself as being more of a “well-disposed pagan”. By Barton’s own standards of living up to her religious morals, I believe that she did as she thought was right. The words of her father while on his deathbed seems to be what I felt Barton lived by in her life; “As a Patriot he bade serve my country with all I had, even my life if need be; as the daughter of an accepted Mason, he bad me seek and comfort the afflicted everywhere, and as a Christian he charged me to honor God and love mankind”.
In a letter to Linda, her grandmother reminds her that even though she may not be on Earth much longer, they will always have a connection through God and they will see each other in heaven someday. She also says, “Strive, my child, to train them for God’s children” (pg.220). These final words that Linda reads from her grandmother really summarizes the biggest religious impact in her life, her grandmother’s faith. It is her grandmother that keeps Linda’s hopes up throughout the book by telling her that god is always with them and that someday he will repay them for their suffering. She is the source of faith and a citadel type place for Linda to go when she loses in hope in what she is doing and fighting for.
I believe this to be relevant in every single person’s life. Similarly, my pastor taught me indirectly about the bible which influenced my religious beliefs. At a young age, I struggled with the confusion of what to believe in and was caught up in mischief. As a result, many adults tried to intervene about my ill behavior, but none of them actually took the time to truly help me change my ways. Luckily, my pastor just happened to have an enormous amount of determination and decided to never give up on me.
