Topic - Pentecost
Pentecost (, Pentēkostē [hēmera], "the Fiftieth [day]") is a prominent feast in the calendar of Ancient Israel celebrating the giving of the Law on Sinai, and also later in the Christian liturgical year commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the disciples of Christ after the Resurrection of Jesus. The feast is also called Whit Sunday, Whitsun, or Whit, especially in the United Kingdom, where the following Monday was traditionally a holiday. Pentecost is celebrated seven weeks (50 days) after Easter Sunday, hence its name. Pentecost falls on the tenth day after Ascension Thursday. - Source: Wikipedia

Sunday was the first of Advent, the season of preparation for Christmas.

It's go, go, go: get stressed out, exhausted, sick, and then spend the week between Christmas and New Year’s in bed trying to recover.
As an evangelical Christian, I've thought recently about why it is that we must support outspoken Christians who usually talk about abortion and homosexuality. Perhaps we should identify Christian politicians who may speak about other issues but nevertheless still have our goals in mind. Ron Paul could be exactly that kind of candidate, certainly on par with (if not above) other evangelicals in the GOP presidential nomination race.
