Layla Karst My research lies at the intersection of liturgical theology and theories of religious practice. It is written in the simple, homely manner of one whose hand is better accustomed to the knife than to the pen, and, without any particular formal order, touches more or less upon most of the forester's operations. The article concludes that Mark 13 does not meet the technical definition of an apocalypse. This differs from the Australian law which gives power to the Family Court to dissolve a marriage which has irretrievably broken down, even if one party disagrees.

The Religious Studies Department sponsored a Nov. 11 interfaith panel of students from different religious traditions that discussed their faiths and their experiences at NDMU in "Unity in Diversity: An Interfaith Dialogue and Open House."

Muslims claimed only that Christian messages from that one universal deity had been superseded and made obsolete by the revelations given to Mohammed. Implement appropriate strategies to assist students to achieve their academic potential. Aristotle said that everyone can become virtuous, but not everyone will. It may be replied, that we are complimented in being thus left to ourselves---that we are a moral people, therefore do not require a military force to keep the peace---a loyal people, therefore do not need an armed force to put down tumult---that we have our own brave yeomanry, who, at no distant period, showed themselves capable of affording their country protection in the most desirable manner, anticipating mischief by their promptitude, and preventing evil before it had come to a head.

My role is to aid them as they begin a new life in England. The feuds arising from these differences of opinion have, as in the case of religion itself, been unfavourable to the progress of the good cause; and one of the most important of national improvements has been, in a great measure, neglected, because men could not make up their minds concerning the very best possible mode of conducting it. Each of us is guided by our own set of ethical principles, and these principles can vary widely depending on our religious and spiritual beliefs.
