SORT BY Relevancy
Seventy-five years after Joseph Stalin's reign of terror across Eastern Europe, entertainment journalist Greg Archer takes a step back from Hollywood and examines his Polish family's mind-bending odyssey of the 1940s. In the process, he exposes one of the most under-reported events of the 20th Century: Stalin's mass deportation of nearly two million Polish citizens to the Siberian gulags and the life-shattering events that followed. The book, Grace Revealed, takes you on that journey.
But the author's quest takes a dramatic turn. As he walks an emotional tightrope between the past and the present, can a serendipitous global adventure become a saving grace, heal the ancestral soul and bring justice to his family and their forgotten Polish comrades?
Greg Archer is an award-winning journalist, editor, cultural moderator and author. His journalism and man-on-the-street coverage of agents of change, arts, culture, travel and the entertainment industry appear regularly in The Huffington Post, San Francisco Examiner, Jetset Extra and on his popular YouTube portal. He has been a contributor to Oprah Magazine, The Advocate, VIA Magazine, Palm Springs Life, Bust, Prevention, The Sydney Morning Herald, The Monterey Herald and other publications.

The History of Christianity #87
Our History of Christianity Scripture verse today is 1 Corinthians 12:27 which reads: "Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular."
Our History of Christianity quote today is from St. Ignatius of Antioch. He said: "It is right, therefore, that we not just be called Christians, but that we actually be Christians."
Today, in the History of Christianity, we are looking at "The Imperial Church - The Impact of the New Order" (Part 1) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
The most immediate consequence of Constantine's conversion was the cessation of persecution. Until then, even at times of relative peace, Christians had lived under the threat of persecution, and what was for many the hope of martyrdom. After Constantine's conversion, that threat and that hope dissipated. The few pagan emperors who reigned after him did not generally persecute Christians, but rather tried to restore paganism by other means. But the immediate impact of that conversion on the life of the church went far beyond the obvious cessation of persecution. In this regard, a series of imperial edicts granted the church and its leaders' privileges whose echoes may still be seen in some areas in the twenty-first century. One of this was tax exemption for church properties, as well as making it legal to bequeath property to the church. Over the long run, this would mean that the church would come to own vast lands and other riches. The bishops -- at the time there were about eighteen hundred of them - as well as other clergy were also granted exemption from taxes, from military conscription, and from the days of labor that others were forced to devote to public works.
An Account of my experience at Brigham Young University within a year of separation from active duty in the Army at Ft. Bragg
2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
I have a tale to relate. After getting out of the Army in 1974 at Ft. Bragg, my family and I
moved to Provo, Utah, to attend BYU. This was an event which was much anticipated and
anticipated with hope and joy at the prospect of being united with like-minded people who
shared our devotion to the Lord and obtaining and doing his will. I had no idea of the subsequent
trial which would shortly befall me. I had been recently ordained a Seventy just after completing
a rather tumultuous term as an Elder’s Quorum President of the Raleigh Stake (3rd Quorum). It
turns out I was the last correctly ordained Seventy by the Church in this dispensation. I had
been wounded by the actions of the Utah Mormons in my Quorum of which I was the President,
and the issues raised during this period could not be answered by appealing to President Carter,
the Branch President of the Student Branch in which we found ourselves. One Sunday in June
of 1974, in Seventies Group meeting the Second Counselor to the Stake President announced
that he wanted to collect all of our “licenses” issued to us by the Church headquarters in which
the Church “invited all to hear our message”. He said they would be returned, and I accepted
this without hesitation or question, and surrendered the small plastic covered document which I
had in my billfold. This seemed innocent enough at the time, but as I look back on it, I now
know what this event portended... (For the complete account)

Eighteen years. Twelve albums. Two gold records. Thirty-plus transatlantic treks. Fifteen Top 40 singles. Arena tours across 11 countries with Guns N Roses. A video trilogy starring Elijah Wood and Ralph Macchio. A feature- length documentary. An oral-history biography. Personal invites from Lemmy to join Motörhead on the road (and on water, for the 2014 Motörboat cruise). For most bands, that would amount to a hell of a career. For Toronto trio Danko Jones, it’s called “warming up." The band is fresh from the release of Fire Music, produced by Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Monster Truck, Metric) and featuring 11 fresh tracks, and is now amidst a slew of global dates.
As for Faith Healer, led by principal songwriter Jessica Jalbert, following the success of 2011’s self-released solo debut, Brother Loyola, the introspective songwriter set to work on penning another collection of inward looking dream pop played with laid back bravado. Engineered under the masterful watch of whip-smart producer—and fellow Mintie—Renny Wilson, the two bonded over their mutual affection for dreamy ‘60s garage rock and swaggering ‘70s singles while in the studio. Hinting at a slightly spacier sound, Cosmic Troubles will arrive March 31st.
Finally, CM contributor Michael Saracino speaks about his new initiative, The Globe Series, which finds the musician and producer travelling to different cities around the world - from Vancouver to Sydney, New York to London - filming local songwriters and aiding in their long-distance collaborations.
