October 29, 2012

Redemption: Languages, Cultures, and God’s Plan The only known example of an individual creating an entirely new system of writing is Sequoyah’s invention of written Cherokee in the early nineteenth century. Inspired by the way he saw white settlers using writing, he devised 85 symbols that correspond with sounds in Cherokee. Soon the Cherokees...

Encouragement to the Community

June 4, 2017

Encouragement to the Community When a worried child expresses doubts about their own worth or their parents’ love, what does any responsible parent do? They comfort the child by repeating over and over again a message of reassurance and encouragement. The same seems to be the case in the first part of today’s reading. Speaking to a community...

July 15, 2005

June 22, 2005
