Jesus the Christ: A Study of the Messiah and His Mission According to Holy Scriptures Both Ancient and Modern

Jesus the Christ: A Study of the Messiah and His Mission According to Holy Scriptures Both Ancient and Modern

It is particularly congruous and appropriate that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints-the only Church that affirms authority based on specific revelation and commission to use the Lord’s Holy Name as a distinctive designation-should set forth her doctrines concerning the Messiah and His mission. The author of this volume entered upon his welcome service under request and appointment from the presiding authorities of the Church; and the completed work has been read to and is approved by the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve. It presents, however, the writer’s personal belief and profoundest conviction as to the truth of what he has written. A characteristic feature of the work is the guidance afforded by modern scriptures and the explication of the Holy Writ of olden times in the light of present day revelation, which, as a powerful and well directed beam, illumines many dark passages of ancient construction.

Upon This Rock: St. Peter and the Primacy of Rome in Scripture and the Early Church (Modern Apologetics Library)

As an Evangelical Protestant, Stephen Ray realized that the real issue dividing Catholics and Protestants was authority. Everything else was secondary to the issue of authority. Protestants accept the authority of the Bible alone, whereas Catholics understand the authority to be residing in the Magisterium, the Scriptures and the Sacred Tradition. Ray goes through the Scriptures and writings from the first five centuries of the early Church to demonstrate that the early Christians had a clear understanding of the primacy of Peter in the See of Rome. He tackles the tough issues in an attempt to expose how the opposition is misunderstanding the Scriptures and history. He uses many Evangelical Protestant scholars and historians to support the Catholic position. This book contains the most complete compilation of Scriptural and Patristic quotations on the primacy of Peter and the Papal office of any book currently available.

Where are some places that churches buy their modern furniture because i am looking to decorate a youth room?

I am looking for modern, new age, and fairly inexpensive.

Do a Google or yellow pags search in your area for “contract furniture” or “institutional furniture”. Don’t expect it to be very inexpensive. Compared to furniture for a family home, items for a church or youth center or other public usage are have to be made to withstand more abuse and heavy usage
.
The best way to get quality items for a good price is to find a place that sells used and reconditioned institutional furniture — they often get it from businesses or hotels that have shut down or that have remodeled. Look up “used office furniture” to find local dealers.

If there is a ReStore in your city (the recycled furniture and building supply outlets of the Habitats for Humanity homebuilders organization) they are often a great source for such items. The one in my town recently had dozens of modern upholstered couches, chairs, coffee and end tables and well as some really cool work station-like desks. Some could have used new fabric covering but you can pay to have that replaced pretty reasonably at upholstery shops. And the sofas were only $ 30 and the chairs were $ 10 so even paying for new fabric would have made them a bargain.

Also, if there is an IKEA store in your region they have very inexpensive and modern stylish furnishings. Some of their cheapest styles might not hold up to a lot of abuse, however.

Jesus the Christ: A Study of the Messiah and His Mission according to Holy Scriptures both Ancient and Modern

The scope of the subject presented in this work is expressed on the title page. It will be readily seen that the author has departed from the course usually followed by writers on the Life of Jesus Christ, which course, as a rule, begins with the birth of Mary’s Babe and ends with the ascension of the slain and risen Lord from Olivet. The treatment embodied in these pages, in addition to the narrative of the Lord’s life in the flesh comprizes the antemortal existence and activities of the world’s Redeemer, the revelations and personal manifestations of the glorified and exalted Son of God during the apostolic period of old and in modern times, the assured nearness of the Lord’s second advent, and predicted events beyond—all so far as the Holy Scriptures make plain. It is particularly congruous and appropriate that the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints—the only Church that affirms authority based on specific revelation and commission to use the Lord’s Holy Name as a distinctive designation—should set forth her doctrines concerning the Messiah and His mission. The author of this volume entered upon his welcome service under request and appointment from the presiding authorities of the Church; and the completed work has been read to and is approved by the First Presidency and the Council of the Twelve. It presents, however, the writer’s personal belief and profoundest conviction as to the truth of what he has written. The book is published by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. A characteristic feature of the work is the guidance afforded by modern scriptures and the explication of the Holy Writ of olden times in the light of present day revelation, which, as a powerful and well directed beam, illumines many dark passages of ancient construction. The spirit of the sacredness inherent in the subject has been a constant companion of the writer throughout his pleasing labor, and he reverently invokes the same as a minister to the readers of the volume.

Church?s China ? the Modern Era Aided and Abetted by Willow Tree

Church?s China ? the Modern Era Aided and Abetted by Willow Tree

 

The collection of Willow Tree has made a massive impact on collectable retailers ever since it’s beginnings in 2000. One such company, Church’s China, has found Willow Tree to be their best selling brand, and helping them to build upon the successes found in their past.

 

Church’s China began life as a little china and crystal retailer in Devizes in Wiltshire. Before long it moved to Northampton and, as the twentieth century progressed, it grew to become the UK’s premier retailer of collectable brands, such as Willow Tree

 

The fourth generation of the family business was represented by Wilfrid Church, known by his middle name of Vivian. Having inherited his mother’s outgoing temperament; Vivian played an altogether different role in the business from his father, the shy Wilfrid. Vivian was (and still is!) masterful at employing his tremendous sense of humour in selling to customers. There are literally hundreds who can vividly recall him demonstrating the strength of fine bone china by hurling plates to the floor or pirouetting on upturned tea cups, admittedly not a trick that would be attempted with something from a collection such as Willow Tree

 

Vivian was also been innovative in his business planning. In his design of the Emporium Arcade expansion in the mid sixties and the move into Welsh House in the seventies, he showed tremendous imagination. Furthermore, his concept of developing a cookshop side to the business in 1965 was years ahead of its time. Customer care had always been a fundamental consideration. To this end, his introduction of free gift wrapping (hitherto unheard of) was a major innovation.

 

In the early 1970’s, in an almost eerie repetition of what occurred at the turn of the century, Church’s China were informed that they had to vacate their position on the Market Square. Again, they were forced to make way for a new shopping development, and again they took temporary refuge in Sheep Street. In fact, during this second period of exile from the Market Square, Church’s occupied two shops; one in Sheep Street in a converted garage showroom currently occupied by Durham Pine. The other shop was at the top of the Drapery from where Thomas Cook now operates.

 

1975 witnessed another exciting move for Church’s, as for the third time in 105 years the business took occupancy in Northampton’s Market Square. The town centre had developed beyond all recognition; the entire area known as Newland had been replaced by an extensive two storey shopping mall, the Grosvenor Centre. The Market Square entrance to the centre was overlooked by the recently restored Jacobean frontage of Welsh House, a building that has a colourful history. It was built towards the end of the sixteenth century for a firm of lawyers, and in 1675 featured in the Great Fire of Northampton. The town centre was destroyed and one of the few escape routes for the inhabitants of the Market Square was through Welsh House into the fields beyond.

 

Welsh House stands as a reminder of Northampton’s historic links with Wales. There is more than one theory as to the origin of the name, Welsh House. One is that the firm of lawyers for whom it was built were of Gaellic extraction. An alternative idea is more agricultural. In the sixteenth century, Welsh drovers would herd sheep, cattle and even geese down the old Roman road of Watling Street (the A5), to sell them on Northampton’s Market Square. On occasions, these drovers would stay overnight in the building. Whatever the reason for its name, the welsh link is indisputable, for even today, if you look at the crest on the front of the building, you will see the Welsh Dragon, the crest of Llewelyn, Prince of Wales and the Welsh Motto “Heb Dyw Heb Dim, Dyw y Digon” (Without God Without anything, God is Enough).

One of the key roles played by Welsh House was that, for many years in the eighteenth century, it housed the original offices of the Northampton Mercury (now part of the Chronicle & Echo). This newspaper proudly holds the record of the longest surviving provincial newspaper in Britain.

 

Church’s not only occupied three floors of Welsh House, but had also taken a unit on the first floor of the Grosvenor Centre, offering the unique opportunity to present alternative faces to the buying public; one a contemporary, modern feel displaying the likes of Willow Tree, the other having a more traditional feel.

 

This window display of Willow Tree certainly helps to boost it’s sales, but this may not be necessary, as the Willow Tree collection has captured the heart of the nation. As Stephen Church, current MD of Church’s China, puts it, “one reason for the success of Willow Tree is their versatility as a gift. You can give flowers or chocolates for almost any occasion, but Willow tree figurines don’t fade and they don’t melt. They’re a gift that expresses an emotion that simply lasts forever.”

Church’s China, one of the United Kingdom’s longest established China and Glass Retailers was founded in 1848 by a wheelright and carpenter, Thomas Church. He set up his business in Maryport Street in the sleepy market town of Devizes in Wiltshire.
