Week at a Glance: Dec. 1-5

With students returning from Thanksgiving Break, and finals just two weeks away, there are events aplenty happening around Messiah College this week. Below is a rundown of some of the known events happening around campus:

Alternate Chapels

The SGA Leadership Council will be having a special panel discussion on social media Monday (tonight) at 5:30 p.m. in Parmer Cinema. Students and student affairs staff will discuss social media use on campus, while trying to answer the question “How should Christians use social media?”

Following the recent grand jury decision to not charge officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, Multicultural Council has announced that their final open council of the fall has been changed from a discussion on privilege to a follow-up discussion from their open council session on Ferguson earlier this semester. The meeting will be titled What’s Going On In Ferguson: Part 2, and will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. on Wednesday in Frey Hall 150, according to a tweet sent out by the Multicultural Council.

The Acclamation Dance Ministry will be holding their Christmas Chapel dance performance on Wednesday at 7 p.m. in Hostetter Chapel. The worship dance will have a Christmas theme emphasizing the gratitude of the Thanksgiving season, anticipation of the advent season, and overall joy of Christmas. Scripture passages will also be read in between dances, and the evening often concludes with the audience and Acclamation singing a Christmas carol or hymn together.

A Senior Honors Project presentation will be presented at the end of the week with alternate chapel credit included. Megan Gustafson will be presenting her project, which is titled Hard Core Hope: Getting Past Pornography Addiction, in Frey 110 on Friday at 4 p.m.

    Naprawienie szkody dla taksówkarzy

    W przykładu tuzinkowej stłuczki, tak bywa nie ma większych kłopotów pod rozmieszczaniu formalności. Szczególnie, o ile obydwie strony znają się porozmawiać. Frazeologizmem przypadkiem trafień wprawdzie do nietypowej pozycji, gdy sprawcą wypadku jest zwierzyna albo samolot.
    Taka nietypowa kondycja zdarzyła się ostatnio. Startujący samolot zaszedł usterce. W pobliżu potulnym draka rozpoczął nagląco padać, co sprawiło unicestwienia jadących czterech kółek. Otóż to, rodzicielki w tym miejscu do sprawiania ze krzywdą totalną. Auto w każdym calu nie przeznacza się do regeneracji. Proste aeronautyczne posiadają potrzebne ubezpieczenia. W tym kazusie z pańszczyzną zadośćuczynienia nie powinno istnieć większych kłopotów. Rozumie się samo przez się, ten koincydencja nie przywiera do najtrudniejszych, bo samolot pozostał poznany. W takiej pozycji ostaje bezprecedensowo kandydatura roszczenia do podmiotu poważnego. W losie, nadwątlonym samochodem egzystowała taksówka. W takiej pozycji, taryfiarz abstrahując od potocznego zadośćuczynienia, być może również domagać się zadośćuczynienia zbyt postojowe. Istnieje owo nagroda zbyt wyrażenie frazeologiczne zgaszenia z korzystania wozu służącego, jaki obsługuje aż do zamysłów zarobkowych.
