Pastor Granillo: Reasonable Disobedience

on March 12, 2017 - 7:07am

Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the desert to be tempted by the devil. After fasting 40 days and 40 nights, he was hungry. Matthew 4:1-2 (NIV)

I struggle sometimes with remembering that not everything is black and white. The Christian Church has been guilty of this as well. Its message has sometimes been, “Here is the rule, there is no excuse for disobedience.”

Sometimes we treat people as if every decision in their life is simple, “Choose A, not B, and you will get C”. This, of course, is not always true. Life is complex.

Letter To The Editor: Veto Override Of HB241 Hurts

NEW-NM Executive Director
 
Gov. Susana Martinez doesn't think teachers are human, too, since she vetoed HB 241 introduced by Republican legislators.
 
The veto is inhumane - hurting both students and educators. House Bill 241 recognizes that teachers might occasionally need to take sick leave.
 
Fortunately the majority in both the House (only three votes against) and Senate (unanimously in favor) do believe teachers are human, too.
 
Educators statewide urge the House and the Senate to override the Governor's veto, as called for by Sen. Brandt (R-Rio Rancho).

• Terahertz And Overcoming the Observer Effect

In science, the term observer effect refers to changes that the act of observation will make on a phenomenon being observed. This is often the result of instruments that, by necessity, alter the state of what they measure in some manner.

A commonplace example is checking the pressure in an automobile tire; this is difficult to do without letting out some of the air, thus changing the pressure.

Just One Thing To Do This Week: Slow Down Dinner!

Early in your career dinner-time is pretty much the same as happy hour—you look forward to leaving work, relaxing with friends and family, and then enjoying a sociable meal.

After you start having children, dinner-time, formally known as happy hour becomes unhappy hour. For decades now I have called it arsenic hour but I am no longer sure if this is an original thought or if I have plagiarized it from someone—it has just been so long.

If you have babies, dinner preparation time coincides perfectly with the ideal hours for colic.
