I don’t know whether future generations will put any value or prestige on personal knowledge. Everything that you want to know is already out there on your smartphone. Want to replace some plumbing? Someone on YouTube will show you how. Can’t remember the name of a song playing at the coffee shop? Turn to Shazam. Need to solve a nasty mathematical expression, go to Wolfram Alpha.

Bryce Avenue Presbyterian Church Presents Conference On Martin Luther And The Reformation Sept. 29–30
On Oct. 31, 1517, theology professor Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses on the door of the All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. The first thesis stated, “When our Lord and Master Jesus Christ said, ‘Repent’ (Matthew 4:17), he willed the entire life of believers to be one of repentance.” Luther said such repentance does not refer to the Roman Catholic sacrament of penance, but to inner repentance that produces outward obedience. He then focused his attack on the Catholic practice of selling indulgences for the remission of sins.

Yet, the School Board of which Ms. Bernstein is a part failed at this task, in a manner that cost us educationally and financially. In addition, it appears that Ms. Bernstein participated in the near silence of the School Board on matters related to COVID and chronic absenteeism, Read More
