An Authorial, Structural, and Theological Investigation of the Cosmic Christology in Col. 1:15-20

Among the array of christologies embodied within New Testament literature, the so-called "hymn" of Colossians 1: 15-20 offers a unique and invaluable contribution to contemporary theological and inter-religious discourse. This is because it conveys what is arguably the highest christological affirmation within the canon. Pizzuto contends that the hymn is a creative and faith-filled composition by the same deutero-Pauline author of the Colossians epistle itself and demonstrates that there is an inextricable relationship between the chiastic structure of Col 1: 15-20 and a proper understanding of its provenance, authorship and theology. Although the hymn echoes theological motifs consistent with Second Temple Judaism and loosely reflects a number of syncretistic influences, it is fundamentally the novelty of the "Christ-event," - the historical impact of Jesus of Nazareth - that has been most influential in determining the christological categories of Col 1: 15-20 and its larger epistolary framework. Pizzuto thus defends the overall integrity of the hymn against those who would assert that it reflects a pre-Christian or pre-Colossians origin. He concludes that Col 1: 15-20 represents something of a "leap" beyond Pauline christology into a new and unequivocal conviction of the cosmic implications of the Cross.

Chris is one of the best parts of her new life, the only person who’s ever made her feel safe. And now that she’s found him, there’s no way she can tell the truth: Her real name is Faith, not Leah. She’s seventeen, not nineteen. And the baby isn’t hers—Faith kidnapped her. Faith’s history catches up with her when a cop starts asking questions and Chris’s aunt spots her picture in the newspaper. She knows it’s time to run again, but if Faith leaves, she’ll lose Chris. If Chris is in love with a lie, though, did Faith ever really have him in the first place?

Everyone experiences pain. Illness, aging, and emotional distress touch all of our lives. Each of us has a soul, or Higher self, that has come into human form to have life experiences. These experiences are designed to provide us opportunities to learn the lessons we need for our spiritual growth. It’s from pain that we grow. Rather than being afraid or overwhelmed by life’s challenges, we can learn how to connect with our Higher self, using our intuitive mind. Making the leap of faith to use our sixth sense to bypass our rational mind and receive inner guidance promotes improved health, greater happiness, and peace of mind. Using case histories accumulated over forty years of practicing family medicine, Dr. Millman discusses many different illnesses and emotional issues and the specifi c lessons each one presents. He uses his holistic and spiritual approach to healing to make sense of the death of our physical body and the transition of our spirit to the other side.

"To write of the conflict within, to be wronged by life and still feel blessed to be living. To know that wrong was just a part of bigger plan of right. This collection essays a reflection into touching a realm, a dimension, we only feel deep within, and are too scared to talk about. This work is a belief in goodness even in the worst of souls, and a belief of filling unimaginable abyss of chaos grief and darkness in human beings, with love light and faith. It is for all the people who have been at the turning points of their lives and have sensed a lower band in all they fail to do and an upper hand which comes to their rescue. It’s for everyone out there who understands that love and pain are inseparable, that angels and devils do exist and we all have a part of both in us. It’s all about which one we love more, the devil to kiss him and make him go the sleep or the angel to challenge and make him go much higher. This short collection is a trial at both communication and silence, because that’s where our innermost or the supreme, as we call it, resides"

How Martin Mcguinness and I Worked Together for Peace

In spring 2006 David Latimer's church, First Derry Presbyterian, was paint bombed yet again. David's normal reaction was to keep his head down and say nothing, but this time he decided to go public about the attacks. Live on Radio Foyle he appealed to Martin McGuinness to help, believing that he was the only man in the city who could protect the church. Little did David expect that Martin McGuinness would be at the church within a few hours, and that this first meeting would mark the beginning of a remarkable relationship that evolved and developed over the next eleven years. In 'A Leap of Faith', David tells how that meeting led to a strong and lasting friendship that was as close as it was unexpected, and that was cemented by their joint commitment to peace building and improving the lives of Northern Ireland's young people. Covering a series of key events - including David's speech at the Sinn Fein Ard Fheis, Martin McGuinness's handshake with the Queen and their joint work for peace in Derry - this timely, heartfelt and moving book tells the inspiring story of a friendship that had lasting impact in Derry and beyond.
