Michael Lindsay‘s article “Evangelicalism Rebounds in Academia” explores the growing importance of evangelicalism in post secondary institutions.

It is a well known fact that the Puritans came to America to have a religious stand. The fact that they came in great numbers also stands true.The economy, the most powerful tool of America was stirred by the Puritans. Many historians believe that if you look around, America is full of examples of the contribution of Puritans in framing its culture. For Example, the dollar bill of America has the statement “in God we trust”. The American dollar, the most powerful tool of the economy of the world, has engraved upon it the philosophy which governed the Puritans.
INTRODUCTION I come from the Kikuyu tribe of Kenya and though I have substantially been brought up in the cosmopolitan Nairobi city my parents and grandparents were close to their Kikuyu culture and through them and the many writings about our culture I find that my way of thinking and relating affected by my background and cultural beliefs. I do know that culture relates to a peoples way of life and particularly their beliefs and traditional practices but I believe as well that these evolve through time especially with intermarriages between different tribes that come from different cultures; in fact I have married from the Kenyan Luo tribe and being a cosmopolitan person based in the Nairobi City where all cultures have been thrown into the same melting pot my children are challenged unlike myself in observing two different cultures that are very different but ofcourse still African. Despite these challenges there are certain attitudes and values my children have definitely picked up from my tribe mainly by virtue of the patriarchal nature of the majority of African cultures where children belong to the fathers tribe but their exposure to other tribes and particularly my wife’s culture will influence their lives and even their own children. The development of the Psychosocial stages is credited to Erik Erikson who was “ influenced by Freud , but searching for a different perspective….” According to him the “human life progresses through a series of 8 stages. Each of these stages is marked by a crisis that needs to be resolved so that the individual can move on.
When an individual exacts servant leadership, they are responsible for their followers, society and all who suffer loss. The servant leader serves the followers vs. the followers serving the leader by leading them to achieve goals and improve. This is a very moral leadership style as the leader focuses on the well being of people before any other goals (Greenleaf, R., 2002). Martin Luther King, Jr. is a strong example to illustrate the image of servant leadership. He was great leader in the African-American Civil Rights Movement and is best-known for his role in Civil Rights movement within the United State and around the world.
When our country was founded, we continued to have decisive relationships with other world powers and nations to carry out the role of global manager. With the purpose of staying a flourishing country, we needed to understand the total social development of the United States accordingly from the transition of an individualistic, patriarchal, white supremacist society to a more bureaucratic organization it is today. We are much more further advanced than the previous times, but we still remain very different. After the ending of WWII, National Security meant much more than simply defending the nation's territory against invasion, it came to be identified with the creation and preservation of a free-trading capitalist world order. U.S. policymakers became determined to awaken the global capitalist economy by depending on a world system of free
Ecotourism on the other hand, which is being implemented by the foresaid nations, attempts to take advantage of the powerful tourism industry while being conscious of how it can negatively affect their environment. Kenya has had an interesting history of positives and negatives throughout their history, dealing with tourism. Stability has been a challenge to the tourism industry of Kenya, due to factors such as the corrupt government, oil problems, and wars.

Reason behind the large number of immigrants was the diversity in growth of plantations. During this economic period, it was when colonial America faced two revivals that had significant effects on it with regard to government, human socialization and religion. The significance looked upon challenging the responsibilities of religion and the rights and liberty of people. Due to the great enlightenment there was acceptance of tolerance in religion and marking of uniting of colonies (Anderson, Talmadge, and James 107). Enlightenment in colonial America was responsible for inspiring the revived interests in science, literature and education.
Thank God Almighty, we are free at last! "There are numerous of great world leaders, who life has had a great impact on the world as we know it. The person I decided to talk about in this paper is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (MLK). MLK stated that “an individual has not started living until he can rise above the narrow confines of his individualistic concerns to the broader concerns of all humanity”. To me that define a great leader, an individual who puts his personal concerns aside to focus on the needs of others to help mankind grow for the greater good.
Things Fall Apart centers around a Nigerian tribe leader named Okonkwo. Known for his strength, courage, and most of all, pride, Okonkwo is looked up to by most the people in his tribe. Okonkwo doesn’t handle the European invasion as well as others due to his large sense of pride, which ultimately leads to his downfall and death. Christian missionaries were one of the main forms of imperialization used by Europeans. The two missionaries in Things Fall Apart were Mr. Brown and Mr. Smith.
Ethics is a division of values dealing with right and wrong in human behavior. The majority of religions have a moral element, and religious advances to the problem of ethics traditionally dominated ethics over spiritual approaches. From the viewpoint of operative religions, to the degree that ethics stems from exposed truth from godly sources, ethics is considered as a branch of mysticism. Several trust that the Golden Rule, which coaches people to "treat others as you want to be treated", is a common denominator in a lot of key ethical codes and religions. (Banton) The phrase global
