that is one phrase I remember from Latin in ninth grade.
It means, "I AM"
I also remember other things...
Cultural things that our teacher told us about the Greek Civilization.
Historial things like the volcano of Pompeii.
I remember learning that our language has its meaning from early latin/greek origins.
I remember being told that the Greek word Familia..
meant anything that a man owned, including his wife, animals, house, and children.
I remember learning that it was a patriarchal and patri-lineal society.
and we read some love poems...
but they weren't for their wives.
No, their wives were kept in their homes with their children,animals and belongings..
they were for their "lovers"; other men.
Men were worshipped, revered, loved and honored.
So I come to the crux of this thought process...because that is what blogging is for me.
On my previous post, I quoted a scripture.
Of course I realized that the men being referred to had little to do with homosexuality.
Maybe I come across on my blog as simple, but I like to talk simply and be direct. I am not totally uneducated.
My point is however, that languages and cultures have shaped our current culture and values.
Especially our spiritual ones.
I pose questions to get us to think.
There really are people who take scriptures literal...and leave things out when it pleases them to do so.
Let's all think, talk, and encourage growth.
as my kids at work would say, "it's all good."
Finding our way - Sam's move in day to his supported living apartment was August 12, and we are continuing to make adjustments. Both of us. It has been, to say the least...
