    SSWAG - Same Sex marriage and The US Census

    in Entertainment

    New and updated data made available by the Census Bureau informs us that there's been a shift going on in our nation.

    The Census Bureau is now including information on same sex couples who are married with a license.

    In a recent article from the U.S. Census, the number of legally married same-sex couple households increased from approximately 182,000 in 2012 to approximately 252,000 in 2013.

    It's high time for the Bold Believers to come together and take a stand to get as many souls set free and minds transformed and renewed through The Love of Christ!

    1491 Census: Tribal Nations Map of Turtle Island with Aaron Carapella, Cherokee

    in Religion

    The 1491 Census: Native Creates Tribal Nations Map of Turtle Island


    http://tribalnationsmaps.com/


    It took him 14 years and thousands of hours, but Aaron Carapella finally did it. He created a map that represents what Turtle Island looked like in 1490. It shows where roughly 590 Native nations were located and gives their indigenous names, instead of the names given by Europeans.


    Being part Cherokee, or Aniyunwiyah, and having grown up in the city, he’s always sought more knowledge of Native history and culture.


    “I would attend pow pows and scour through the items vendors had for sell [sic]. From time to time I would see maps of the traditional territories of our tribes, but thought they looked incomplete, and the names mostly inaccurate. I filed away the idea of one day creating a more authentic-looking one myself,” Carapella says on his website. “Years went by as I looked from time to time for a better map. One day I decided, ‘It’s time to make a REAL map of Native America, as WE see it.’ It started with four poster boards and a rough pencil drawing of the United States. Over the next 14 years I would create the Tribal Nations Map.”


    The process of collecting the real names of tribes was a tedious one. He studied books, and called tribes individually.


    “Some tribes, once contacted, wouldn’t know that information,” he told the Tulalip News. But the tribe always got back to him with someone who could tell him what he needed to know to continue his research.

    The First Census of the Israelite Nation and You (Numbers 1 & 2)

    in Christianity

    God is preparing to move His people into the Promised Land, and the first step He takes is to take a census. God organizes the people, which will make it easier for them to gather for battle as well as keep their stay in the wilderness orderly.


     


    Overview of Numbers: At this point it has been about a year since they left Egypt. God's intention is to lead them directly into their land of Promise.  But the people rebel and disobey. This book covers 38 years, as the Israelites wander in the wilderness literally to wait until the disobedient generation dies off.

    Heroes of Katrina: 10 Years After /The St Bernard Parish Fire Department

    in Writing

    When the winds of Katrina began to die down, the flood waters began to rise.  For St. Bernard Parish, the flooding was nearly absolute.  99% of the structures had been flooded and destroyed.  In some places 25 feet of water lapped up upon the rooftops.


    St Bernard Parish is the only county in the history of the United States to have been nearly completely destroyed.


    As of the census of 2000, there were 67,229 people (an increase of 598 or 0.9% over the previous decade), 25,123 households, and 18,289 families residing in the parish. The population density was 145 people per square mile (56/km²). There were 26,790 housing units at an average density of 58 per square mile (22/km²).


    After Katrina, with an entire population reeling from the destruction, many evacuated.  Those that remained waited for the waters to subside and began the long process of re-building.


    For perspective, as of the census of 2010, there are 35,897 people.  The community is still re-building 10 years later.


    During the storm, the St Bernard Parish Fire and Sherriff's Department deployed to aid the community as the flood waters rose and remained.


    Chief Thomas Stone is our special guest.


    Chief Stone recently told us, "So much has occurred with the recovery and rebuilding of our departments, such as building new stations, replacing our apparatus, hiring and training new firefighters. Our departments have been to hell and we’re not back yet.  We had a mass departure of senior officers in the years after Katrina, threat of layoffs of firefighters and all the red tape trying to rebuild. We have not even replaced all of our equipment lost through the Public Assistance Project Worksheet program 9 ½ years later".


    Please join us for what promises to be a fascinating show about perseverance, reality, hopes, and dreams.

    Multicultural Children's Book Day with founders Mia Wenjen & Valarie Budayr

    in Parents

    Kori welcomes the founders of Multicultural Children's Book Day to the program. Join us in a discussion about diversity in children's book publishing, what's gone wrong, what's going right, and where it's headed.


    Despite census data that shows 37% of the US population consists of people of color, only 10% of children’s books published have diversity content. Using the Multicultural Children’s Book Day, Mia and Valarie are on a mission to change all of that. Their mission is to not only raise awareness for the kid’s books that celebrate diversity, but to get more of these types of books into classrooms and libraries. Another goal of this exciting event is to create a compilation of books and favorite reads that will provide not only a new reading list for the winter, but also a way to expose brilliant books to families, teachers, and libraries.

    in Christianity

    TEXTS


    Now in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus, that a census be taken of all the inhabited earth. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And everyone was on his way to register for the census, each to his own city.


    Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the city of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and family of David, in order to register along with Mary, who was engaged to him, and was with child.


    While they were there, the days were completed for her to give birth. And she gave birth to her firstborn son; and she wrapped Him in cloths, and laid Him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.


    THEMES


    Jesus Christ is described as Son of David, Son of Man and Son of God. His sonship speaks of his divinity and humanity and is closely associated with his role as promised Messiah, suffering Savior, risen Lord and coming judge and king.

    FACTS: Approximately 12%-13% of the American population is African-American, but they make up 40% of the almost 2.1 million male inmates in jail or prison (U.S. Department of Justice, 2009). Census data for 2000 of the number and race of all individuals incarcerated in the United States revealed a wide racial disproportion of the incarcerated population in each state: the proportion of blacks in prison populations exceeded the proportion among state residents in twenty states; the percent of blacks incarcerated was five times greater than the resident population.


    In an August 2013, Sentencing Project report on Racial Disparities in the United States Criminal Justice System, submitted to the United Nations, "one of every three black American males born today can expect to go to prison in his lifetime".

    Levites Exempted (Numbers 1:47-54)

    in Christianity

    TEXTS


    The Levites, however, were not numbered among them by their fathers’ tribe. For the Lord had spoken to Moses, saying, “Only the tribe of Levi you shall not number, nor shall you take their census among the sons of Israel. But you shall appoint the Levites over the tabernacle of the testimony, and over all its furnishings and over all that belongs to it. They shall carry the tabernacle and all its furnishings, and they shall take care of it; they shall also camp around the tabernacle. So when the tabernacle is to set out, the Levites shall take it down; and when the tabernacle encamps, the Levites shall set it up. But the layman who comes near shall be put to death. The sons of Israel shall camp, each man by his own camp, and each man by his own standard, according to their armies. But the Levites shall camp around the tabernacle of the testimony, so that there will be no wrath on the congregation of the sons of Israel. So the Levites shall keep charge of the tabernacle of the testimony.” Thus the sons of Israel did; according to all which the Lord had commanded Moses, so they did.


    THEMES


    Levites were assistants to the Aaronic priests, they exercised an auxiliary ministry, caring for the tabernacle. After the ark was brought to Jerusalem by David their role was reordered and extended.


    They were reconsecrated during the reforms of Josiah and Hezekiah and recommissioned by Ezra and Nehemiah when the Israelites returned from captivity. The Levites are to transport, erect, and guard the tabernacle. The Gershonite branch of the Levites are to care for the coverings and curtains of the tabernacle. The Kohathite branch of the Levites are to care for the furnishings of the sanctuary. The Merarite branch of the Levites are to care for the frames of the tabernacle. The Levites are to have an auxiliary ministry. The Levites are set apart for their ministry. The Levites period of service was between the ages of...

    Jumah Safar 13 1436 Assess ourselves in time,space & events/Glorify our One LORD

    in Religion

    We are borne, we occupy space in time and events occur during our life time.  What are we doing, when, where, why, and for whom?  What do we expect to happen with us as we age in time?  Where are we headed in this frame of time and will it all matter to ones around us now or later?  Can we say that we are constructing a model example for others to follow?  Is the model example connected to another model?  Could the life examples from the Prophets be connected to our current life?  In education, government, business and the social/religious arenas, how are we faring?  Let's get a good census of our individual involvement in our human family life and correct the structure to have future soundness, clearness and logical processes happening.
