Joachim Hossenfelder. This movement represented Hitler’s “Positive Christianity” views and lawfully encoded into the Nazi “constitution.” Hitler tried to force regional Protestant churches to merge into the Protestant Reich Church. Protestant churches throughout Germany participated in the movement but Hitler’s union of the churches failed because of in-church bickering. Only one visibly apparent church remains in Germany that shows distinctive markings of Positive Christianity, a reminder of how Christianity and Nazism mixed together during the Nazi regime.”1 MOST SECRET: 1944 «PROJECT X» SOE – British MI5 infiltrated by Soviet super spy Rudolf Abel? ————————————————- The National Archives, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, England Ministry of Economic Warfare Special Operations Executive: Group C, Scandinavia: Registered Files NORWAY MOST SECRET 7th April,1944 Under

The message Project 365(2) Day 286

The message Project 365(2) Day 286
Church advertising
Image by Keith Williamson
My friend Pete may remember a certain Headteacher from the school where we both worked. He was small, wore glasses, had a very insincere grin on his face and was nicknamed “oily”. Say no more!

One day oily had a bright idea. It would be good if all of our lessons started in the same way – a consistent approach was how he described it.

At the start of each lesson the children were meant to give “the message”. This was to indicate to the teacher that they were ready for work.

Obviously this made a great impact on me because I am struggling to remember what exactly the message was.

By comparison, the message outside the parish church in Bigastro is a lot clearer. It tells us that the children of the town are the salt of the earth and the light of the world. The poster is advertising the communion classes for 2010 – 2011 but why?

Over 70% of Spaniards claim to be Catholic but only 14% say they regularly go to mass. Added to which, the government has passed some radical laws to permit abortion and single sex marriages. These facts have not gone down well at the Vatican hence the recent visit by the Pope.

Fearful of a dwindling congregation in the future, I imagine the local church is attempting to drum up trade and do its bit. The problem is that communion costs the parents an awful of of money.

New York Construction Magazine Honors JRS Architect, P.C. Bank Project

Mineola, NY (PRWEB) December 13, 2007

JRS Architect, P.C. has been honored by McGraw-Hill’s New York Construction magazine for its unique architectural design for Madison National Bank’s branch in Merrick, NY.

The architectural firm, which has offices in Long Island, New York City and New Jersey, received the Award of Merit in the retail category in the publication’s Best Of 2007 winners, which was voted on by a jury of industry leaders. The award was presented today.

“It’s always gratifying to receive recognition for our work and we are especially proud of our work for Madison National Bank,” said John R. Sorrenti, F.A.I.A., President of JRS. “Awards, such as this New York Construction’s Award of Merit, inspire us to accomplish even greater things in the future.”

JRS, one of the nation’s leading bank architectural and design firms, created a unique design that serves as a cornerstone to the brand image of Madison National Bank, which was opened its doors earlier this year. The design was based upon Madison National Bank’s vision to have their bank reflect a warm and inviting environment.

“The bank’s founders wanted something that was different, eye catching and reminiscent of old world design, coupled with the benefits of the latest building technology and products,” said Sorrenti.

The firm designed an almost 3,700-square foot branch with a towering brick chimney, high sloping roof and turreted vestibule that allows it to stand out on Merrick’s busy streetscape.

JRS’ design for the bank was based on American revival architecture of the mid to late 19th Century, a style called Richardson Romanesque and named after architect Henry Hobson Richardson, whose masterpiece is Trinity Church in Boston. Richardson’s style is characterized by massive stone walls and dramatic semicircular arches over windows and entranceways, rounded towers with conical roofs whose counterpoint resides in the dynamism of interior space. To create an open, inviting and warm interior, JRS used a cathedral ceiling supported by Queen Ann trusses, a burning fireplace, wrought iron bronze chandeliers and red and gold floral carpeting and upholstered chairs.

About JRS Architect, P.C.:

JRS Architect, P.C., with offices in Mineola, NY, New York City, and Princeton, NJ, has grown from six people since its establishment in 1986 to more than 50 today serving New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. It has developed design expertise in the corporate, financial, healthcare, educational and institutional, hospitality and public-spaces, and retail markets.

VOENA Children’s Choir to Perform Benefit Concert for The Heifer Project at Community Congregational Church in Benicia

Benicia, CA (PRWEB) April 18, 2007

VOENA presents the “Voices of Many Lands” tour, celebrating the joyous songs of spring where favorites such as “You Raise Me Up” and “Prayer of The Children” are originally performed in a splash of color. This is a rare opportunity to see this well-known children’s choir in the intimate setting of Community Congregational Church. Concert proceeds will benefit The Heifer Project.

Presented in a style the director Annabelle Marie calls, “physical singing,” VOENA returns to Benicia after an astounding year that took them from the World Expo in Japan — where they dazzled international audiences — to their magical performance at the 2005 Pageant of Peace at the White House. VOENA, representing up to 35 cultures, with 100+ voices ranging in age from 6 to 18, achieves rich and inventive a cappella vocal arrangements by using multiple percussion instruments, dance and theatrical elements. VOENA will take you on a magical journey celebrating the many cultures around the world and recognizing that the true spirit of unity is understood in any language.

While the VOENA story is remarkable enough — the talent, passion and vision of Founder and Director Annabelle Marie is truly extraordinary. In 1994, a friend suggested that she involve her two children in a concert she was preparing at Cal State Hayward. Inspired by the suggestion, she decided to “involve a lot of kids.” She advertised a free children’s concert and held auditions at area schools and throughout the city. The event was successful and parents were so enthusiastic, that Annabelle agreed to continue the choir, which has grown steadily — a testament to her dedication, the quality of the music, and the ongoing commitment of the children and parents.

VOENA is now 110 children strong with members ranging from the age of 6 through 18. This multi-ethnic choir performs a cappella vocal arrangements using multiple percussion instruments, dance and theatrical elements. Their musical repertoire includes folk music from Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Europe, the Middle East, North and South America. The children sing classical, pop and sacred songs in more that 20 languages representing the ethnicities of the choir including Swahili, Japanese, Russian, Navajo, Hebrew, Mexican, Armenian, Persian, Irish, African-American, Vietnamese, German, Spanish, French, Hawaiian, Chinese, Italian, Dutch, Danish, Filipino, Tamil, Australian, Colombian, Venezuelan, Portuguese, East Indian, Native American, Swiss and Malay.

Most of the children join VOENA without an previous choir experience. There are no auditions; if the child has the desire to be in the choir, he or she is accepted. Annabelle Marie says that “Any child with the commitment and desire to sing can be in VOENA.” There are four divisions within the choir: preparatory, intermediate, concert and concert ensemble.

This choir has performed for the Pope, The President of the United States of America, toured through Europe and Japan and their debut of their Valentine’s Day Concert at The Majestic Theatre in Benicia sold out the historic 380-seat venue.

VOENA is a musical experience filled with Latin rhythms, melodies from the Orient, beats from the hood, and harmonies from everywhere. It’s a coming together of dissonances from far away lands and the celebration of new accords. It is VOENA — it is powerful, it is beautiful, it is the voice of virtue — it is the hope sought by all and sung by children.
