I have been going to church every Sunday I’ve been here, because they use the same punishment for skipping. These bloody copy cats use the exact same public embarrassment as we do. Another aspect that they copy about us is telling little children that if they didn’t go to church they would drown. They’re life is practically the same as ours. What is the point of starting a new life if it’s the same as your old one! One of the things that I do like about these colonies is that they really do seem enthusiastic about religion. I’ve asked them why and they said because of this movement called the “Great Awakening” where preachers would travel from town to town having outdoor revival meetings.
New religious sects, as well as new literary movements and the Industrial Revolution fueled reformers into making differences in our society. To begin with, Ralph Waldo Emerson and his literary influence had a huge impact on reformers. Emerson strongly believed in transcendentalism, which was an intellectual movement that rejected traditional religion and was based around the idea that people are trapped by inherited customs and institutions. His message of self realization spread to several hundred thousands of people(through his writings and lectures). This inspired others to give their own lectures about their own ideas. Emerson believed in individual reform for the middle class, and supported and celebrated those who rejected the norm
I would like to go to Bergen Catholic High School for the education, technology advancements, and the Brotherhood that is experienced on a daily basis. These are a few of the aspects that drew me to your school.
In the article “Two Year Are Better Than Four,” written by Liz Addison. She expressed her view that the community college also has significant importance in comparison with the university. Also she mentioned that community colleges do not receive the attention and admission from the education system and that community college do not receive the acknowledgment and appreciation that they deserve “College as America used to understand it is coming to an end” (Addison 211). Many argue that education really isn’t worth it at all. That intellectualism comes from somewhere other than colleges and schools. They believe that there are more important things than the degree you earn. They insist that learning basic principles through daily life
Picking to attend a Community college for me is the best choice that I picked for my education. Community colleges provide a great service to students in many more ways other than just education. They help students who are unsure what they want to do or are unable to attend a four year university. Community Colleges also provide continuing education even after they have gotten a degree and a job.
When I was in the fifth grade I had joined West Side Boys & Girls Club they had opened my eyes on how to be friendly and how to respect others around you.They had prepared me on how to include people and how to open up myself and how to get ready for college and what it has to offer me.
Raised all my life in Puerto Rico and then transferring to America was a great challenge. I had to overcome various difficulties in order to adapt to new ideas, cultures, and lifestyles. One of the obstacles I encountered was adapting to school. Since I was five my parents wanted me to imbibe the English language in order to have an exceptional future filled with opportunities, but when I arrived all my hard work in learning English did not seem to matter at my middle school. I arrived in this country thinking I was going to be in the most challenging classes and be at the top but reality smacked me in the face the first day I entered eighth grade. To my disadvantage the counselors did not care about my previous grades in Puerto Rico. Seeing that my parents were only able to speak Spanish, the school deduced my English was not well-developed enough and consequently I was placed in English-language learner (ELL) classes. After testing me in reading, writing, and hearing I was

Throughout the sixteenth century, Protestant Reformations were a common theme among a vast majority of European countries. The Protestant Reformation that took place in Germany was led by Martin Luther, a former Catholic Monk. His reasons for Reformation were solely religious based, which was very different than the Reformation that took place in England. The English Reformation was led by King Henry VIII, but unlike Luther, his reasons for Reformation were personal. Although these two Protestant Reformations were very different, they had one highly important thing in common, they were both extremely large threats to the dominant Catholic Church.
I have worked so hard in school waiting for a moment like this. UNCW would be a great challenge for me, but it would also help me out immensely. UNCW has a excellent education program and that is exactly the field of study I aim to go into. I spent approximately half of my sophomore year at the early college tutoring at Dobson Elementary. I cherished every second helping my fifth grade class. I gained the opportunity to assist the teacher with the math part of the class and also enjoy recess with the kids. At first, I was nervous and kind of terrified of the kids, but I warmed up quickly and began to find things in common with them. A good majority of them enjoyed basketball just like me. So when recess arrived they would all crowd around me
I believe Brebeuf Jesuit would be the best school for me because I feel comfortable when I am there. I already know and have met many people at Brebeuf. They have told me about their great experiences, and what it is like being a student there. I am very connected to many people at the school, which has brought me much closer to the school and the people there.
For this pastoral interview, I interviewed Andrew O’Brien. He has been serving as the missions pastor for North Ridge Church for two years. O’Brien lives in Falls City, Nebraska with his wife, Emily, and two young sons. Being a child of missionaries in Mexico, he has always had a heart for missions. In obtaining higher education, O’Brien attended Philadelphia Bible College (now Carin University), to obtain a degree in Bible as well as a minor in missions. I talked with O’Brien his doctrinal position, strategies, opinions, and practical applications of the church with missions.
Capital Christian is known for their academics. We have won many competitions. For example, Ellie and I tied for first in the science fair, with our bacteria project.

As I stepped out of my car, I acknowledge that the church was surrounded by trees, which gave it a calming and peaceful sensation, the building was long with a triangular shaped form, with burgundy bricks surroundings and a bit of white in the front entrance and some at the very top and sides with a dark beige roofing to give the church some color, the windows seemed to be a tinted crystal glass that was designed with blues and a beige color. As I made my way into the church their was an entry room where a man and a women and what seemed to be their two children greeted me and handed me a pamphlet that described what was going to take place in that days Sunday school and mass, then I made my way to another pair of doors where I could hear the choir singing, as I opened the doors the inside of the church was a tan wood looking color all around and had matching tan benches with burgundy red bedding to match the carpet, the thing that stood out most to me when I walked in was the large cross that was in the very front that shined very bright as if the sun was hitting it to give the whole church light, when I looked below the cross, the choir was singing and beside it was a women playing a piano with so much passion and in front of them was a the pastors book stand also a matching tan color with his bible. The people were very kind as I sat down next to a friend that attends that church, they welcomed me with open arms and talked a bit about them self’s and the amount of time
Reflecting on one’s religious experiences growing up can be a rigorous task but can also provide a self-reflection if the one reflecting looks at the events in a non-bias manner. I grew up in a non-structured home when it came to religion. My first experiences of religion came from my Dad’s stepdad. He owned a farm out in Bolton and when I was little I would go to the farm on the weekends and assist them on the farm and maybe see my cousins while I was there. At first, I didn’t go to church with my grandfather, but I would watch the religion channel since they only had one tv and it was on what he wanted if it was on at all. Memories are still engraved of watching sermons of John Hagee and others. He stuck out the most to me because he kind of reminded me of my grand
