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.

Thenthe celebration of Mass with Most Rev. Joe Vasquez, Bishop of Austin who was the Celebrant. Most Rev. Michael Mulvey, Bishop of Corpus Christi, and Most Rev. Daniel Garcia, Auxilary Bishop-Elect of Austin. There were several Priests of the Diocese of Austin and the Diocese of Corpus Christi as Concelebrants.
This was held at the St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Austin January 24, 2015. There were several thousand marchers who made this day a great success. In Texas, a lot of great progress has been made in defending life. Many of abortion clinics have closed their door.
We are eternal beings, living libraries of history. Our bodies are houses of DNA codes that record the memory of the experiences of our ancestors. We carry a genetic memory of places and events from the past that affect our present lives. Our bodies are formed by the ancestral journeys to certain parts of the earth, where adaptation to ultraviolet rays of the sun, the elements in the water, and the minerals in the earth shaped skin tone, hair texture, height and weight. These are the houses of history we inhabit during our experience on earth. But the energy inside those houses, the spirits, the souls, carry the memories of every life experience, on Earth and elsewhere. Hypnotherapist and energy healer Myeka shares ancient knowlege that current European philosophy refuses to acknowledge, preventing the necessary spiritual healing of a people still traumatized by American slavery. Are we ready to transcend the limiting fear-based religious beliefs forced upon us by our captors and embrace the true knowlege of who we are as eternal spirit beings?
Questioning Authority: MLA Citing in the Digital Age
with Michelle Luhtala,
Librarian, New Canaan High School, Connecticut
If authority control was a problematic concept to teach in 2001, it is even more so now for today's librarians. Grappling with standardization in the library will be discussed ... and how to adjust so students learn proper research techniques.Welcome back, Michelle

Eddie Money isn't the only one who wants to go back. In fact, the older I have gotten the more I have realized his famous song of that title is a spiritual masterpiece. Who among us, having left the farm of the comfortable spirituality of our childhood, hasn't at one point or another - perhaps many times - wished we could return to that simpler time with simpler answers to simpler questions? Yet, we also realize that life is not simple and so engaging it with integrity requires perhaps increasingly complex answers with each passing year. That doesn't stop the occasional, and sometimes frequent, yearning to return home. What does that yearning mean?
These questions were brought home for me in a unique way late one night when I visited the website of a local Episcopal parish. They had pictures on their site of the bishop's visitation, and I was struck by the fact that there was only a handful of families present - so few in fact that the children's homily he gave before his sermon had only a few children listening to it. We could see this as a referendum on his Episcopacy - he certainly is a pompous ass of epic proportions - but I suspect the smattering of people in attendance actually reflected the state of the religion to which we sometimes long to return - the death rattle is being breathed. What do we do when that to which we long to return is no longer viable? This and more, today on Interspiritual Insights!

Jamaican Diva Barbara Jones Dies at the Age of 62
Jamaican Diva Barbara Jones died last Friday at the age of 62 in Kingston Jamaica. Her soul influenced reggae ballads propelled her to popularity in the seventies along with Judy Mowatt and Pam Hall.
Jones was born Barbara Nation in Kingston but grew up in Manchester, a rural parish located in central Jamaica. She began her musical career cutting a cover of American country singer Sue Thompson’s Sad Movies with the Soul Syndicate Band for Randy’s Records.
Most of her popular songs included, Evie Sands’ Angel in The Morning and Walk through This World with Me, originally done by Englebert Humperdinck and Dream Lover.
Jones toured with Jimmy Cliff as a backup singer, before giving up secular music in the early 1980s. She became a Christian and eventually recorded four gospel albums.
In May, Jones returned to her reggae roots by doing two shows in Brazil along with bassist/singer Lloyd Parks. They did shows in the cities of Teresina and Belem. Jones was shocked she had fans in Brazil, a vibrant market for so-called vintage reggae.
“I didn’t know my songs were so popular there. People always told me, I should go to Brazil as they love me there,” she told the Jamaica Observer during an interview after her return.
Barbara Jones is survived by her husband, three children and three grandchildren. The thanksgiving service for her life is scheduled for the Gregory Park Baptist Church on January 10. R.I.P Jamaican Diva Barbara Jones.http://jamaicandivas.com/tag/barbara-jones/

The True Meaning of Christ-Mass
My people parish for a like of knowledge.Your Bible warns of a Great Spirit war that will take place in the future actually in the very near future even now. Many of you reading this article will get angry but the truth will set you free. But notice this amazing statement: "So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him" (Revelation 12:9).
Read that carefully. Satan, the devil, deceives the whole world! That means the people of every nation. That means you and me. I have been deceived. You have been deceived. But, thankfully, God calls us out of this world's deception, through the true Jesus Christ of the Bible!
