Christmas is one of the holidays where I give back to those around me who I appreciate the most and I am not saying that materialistic things count, but giving to those back for all they have done for me is just a small thank you, it is also really heartwarming to see them get what they have wanted. Another important thing that is extremely important to me is pride month and equality. This is important to me because I believe that everyone is equal and nobody should be treated differently just because of their sexual orientation. Furthermore, pride month is where everyone can go out and express themselves for who they really are. I also have mixed feelings for pride month.
Catholic Spanish-speaking people hold onto their traditions of language and culture but have also embraced the American way of life (Zimmerman). Every culture on earth has its traditions, which bond them to the past. The personal emotions invested in traditions are the biggest part of our values and the very glue that holds a community people together (McDowell). Traditions ensures communities are pleasant places to live. Saying please and thank you show we do not take people for granted (Traditions).
Please read with me 1 Tim. 6:17-19(TLB) with an open mind and a teachable spirit. “Tell those who are rich not to be proud and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone, but their pride and trust should be in the Living God who always richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment. 18 Tell them to use their money to do good. They should be rich in good works andshould give happily to those in need, always being ready to share with others whatever God has given them.
I am so blessed to have a school that has a loving community, honest people, respectful piers, and generous individuals. Every week I learn about Jesus’ miracles, and how much he loves each and everyone of us. All in all, my catholic faith means a lot to me and I am very blessed to get to learn about my faith every
Charism plays an important role in both the communal and individual life of a believer. Here Menzies is in agreement that “the rich variety of gifts granted to every believer for the common good appear to be a natural extension of Paul’s larger pnuematological perspective”(Fee, 192). The significant thing to note though is that for Paul the Holy Spirit’s work in our lives is connected to our participation in the body of Christ. As we walk in the Spirit, He produces fruit in our lives. The fruit of the Spirit in our lives is not just individualistic and for personal benefit but for corporate benefit of the body of
His capacity for love and sacrifice grows significantly when he raises Eppie. He now attends church, public events, and talks to others much clearer than before. Silas even says, "Since the time the child was sent to me and I've come to love her as myself, I've had light enough to trusten by; and now she says she'll never leave me, I think I shall trusten till I die" (Eliot 180). Even though he didn’t deserve to be robbed, Eppie was a gift that was well deserved. In conclusion, Silas Marner is a moral tale, showing the reward of virtue and the punishment of immoral behavior through some of its most important characters.
During Sundays, Filipino families would go the church and pray together. They believe that this will make their family’s bond stronger. (Jujanester, 2016) They also make sure that they will have enough time to bond with their families; they usually stay in their homes, eat and talk about things or go out and spend some time in malls. Fourth, one of the traits that make up a Filipino is their “generosity and helpfulness”. One example, every
Pastor Kim delivered the message of Easter to the public which was hugely appreciated specially by the Chairman of the city administrative council. Looking at all these things happening our despair converted into joy. Though We could not prepare a single thing properly, but could clearly see the will and promise of God could not be broken. During the preparation of Easter cantata while we faced lot of difficulties gave up our hopes many times but God held our hearts with his word and his servant. And ultimately we saw the work of god, a hope is established in our hearts that God is going to do more wonderful and beautiful things in our
I love the food, the fiestas, the flora and fauna and most of all, I love when my family and relatives tell me to serve the poor and less fortunate after graduation. I love when I don't need to entertain the thought of leaving this country. I love the possibilities that I could help in making this country a better place to live in. I love it that i found words of inspiration and motivation to stay and fight for this country from fellow Filipino youths. I love how i meet international volunteers and exchange students who fell in love with Philippines and its people.
Upon the program is going to starts I felt so overwhelming because I am going to celebrate Christmas with this children who are contented to what they have in the other side I feel ashamed because I always want other people to fulfill my expectations, I want them to treat me better, I want them to love me, I was so demanding of what they can do for me but this change after meeting this children who were so happy after receiving cheap things from us. They prove that Christmas is not just buying expensive things to be happy, receiving money, they show me that Christmas is more than that, that the true spirit of Christmas is giving, reminiscing and creating memories, making friends and celebrating it with joy and worry
