Planting grasses to soak in rains and fill hillside aquifers, Bamberger devoted the rest of his life to restoring the degraded landscape. Today, the land has been restored to its original habitat and boasts enormous biodiversity. Bamberger’s model of land stewardship is now being replicated across the region and he is considered to be a visionary in land management and water conservation.

Views:1342|Rating:2.06|View Time:7:26Minutes|Likes:7|Dislikes:10 The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) has expanded its definition of marriage to include a ”commitment between two people,” recognizing gay marriage as Christian in the church constitution after decades of debate over same-sex relationships.
The redefinition was endorsed last year by the church General Assembly, or top legislative body, but required approval from a majority of the Louisville, Kentucky-based denomination’s 171 regional districts, or presbyteries. The critical 86th “yes” vote came Tuesday night from the Presbytery of the Palisades in New Jersey.
“So many families headed by LGBTQ couples have been waiting for decades to enter this space created for their families within their church communities,” said the Rev. Robin White, a leader of More Light Presbyterians, which advocates for gay acceptance.
After all regional bodies finish voting and top Presbyterian leaders officially accept the results, the change will take effect June 21. The denomination has nearly 1.8 million members and about 10,000 congregations and is now the largest Protestant group to authorize gay weddings churchwide.

Pearson has said, “Anyone who spends every day getting drunk will destroy their family health marriage and career, they will make their life a living hell But it is still far from the chronic alcoholic who was condemned by a just God to literally burn in hell for eternity
For others it may well be that the punishment deserved their sins are greater than they receive in this life For them maybe it will be some form of punishment after death, but we think there will be remedial and corrective rather than just punishment for punishment &# 8217; sake Exactly what will be and how long we will not know, hell for some people the last 10 minutes or 10 million years … we do not know but what we know, Hell will not last forever, there will be endless … sin is not reunited with God now, rather than after you have set yourself (and those you love) through Hell ”

See and hear first-hand accounts of the boycotts, the Children’s March, the integration of the University of Alabama, and the tragic bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church. This film offers unique insight into the conditions so prevalent in the South at the time, and the bravery of those who were determined to change things. The film features special appearances by Carolyn McKinstry, Shelley Stewart, Sara Collins Rudolph, Barnett Wright, Joe Langston, Dr. Jesse Lewis and some of the unsung “foot-soldiers,” who as children, marched and were jailed.
