“For centuries the Church held the belief that they could only provide the information. This information was all a monopoly in the murals, stained glass, and decorated paraphernalia of shrines and altars. The educational activities of the clergy thought there was an awesome
Short Assignment Three My picture is a photograph that I believe is meant to convince. The intended audience I believe is those of the Christian faith, especially the modern day “Cafeteria Catholics”. I say this because it would not be aimed at someone who simply does not believe, was not raised, or does not take part in the religion at all.
There is sacred time and there is profane time “in which acts without religious meaning have their setting” (68). Sacred time “appears under the paradoxical aspect of a circular time…a sort of eternal mythical present that is periodically reintegrated by means of rites” (70). In the Jewish tradition, the synagogue or temple is considered a sacred place. During a wedding, another place that is made sacred and has importance is the canopy that the bride and groom stand under for the ceremony. Sacred time during the wedding ceremony is when prayers and blessing are being said.
The observer discusses their motivations in the preamble. Speaking as the human’s pastor, they describe how they ‘tended’ the human, guiding them to the right path. The use of the term ‘tended’ invokes the commonplace metaphor of the child

This quote explains that husband and wife should be faithful to one another as well as to honor each other in marriage. In The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer uses the horatian satire to depict the institution of marriage.
In the image, his ethos is depicted in multiple ways. One of these is thought the flood and fire. As mentioned above, the flooding and fire rest at the feet of everyone in the church—except the preacher. He instead stands slightly above the congregation, and appears to be standing on the hand of God. Additionally, he is made larger than everyone else in the room.
When talking about the church, a person must keep in mind the rituals that are performed usually by said churches. Sometimes these rituals are traditional, but you must not forget that the church does attempt to avoid such practices unless they were to adapt to such a stale lifestyle. To do this churches use genres to help impact the action going on in-/outside of the church—by that, of course, churches also vary in actions. Johnathan Swales tells us that, “a discourse community utilizes and hence possesses one or more genres in the communicative furtherance of its aims” (221). The church most dearest to me is none other than Titus Harvest Dome.

Marriage can have many viewpoints that can either be similar or different, depending on the person and their religious beliefs, or other reasons.

Others desire to be married right out of high school before they even think about a career choice. Some people don't put in any thought about marriage and how it is going to affect their lives. Most women are ready to tie the knot because the thought about moving in with their loved one sounds amazing.
In this blog post, we want to examine what are Millennials seeking in the area of spirituality. I am avoiding the term worship because first it is a loaded word these days and Millennials are finding ways to grow in their faith outside of the Sunday Morning worship experience.
