    Gerardo Mejia Professor Feres Religious Studies 325 17 April 2015 Retreat On Friday March 6th I embarked on a retreat until Sunday March 8th. Holy Spirit Catholic Church hosted this retreat, which is located at, 2725 55th St, San Diego, CA 92105.

I knew the basics, and I also knew that there were no electronics allowed. I would be phoneless for practically the weekend. As we arrived to the retreat location, we found our luggage and those who already…

    religious values of Christianity. The poems viewpoint of the crucifixion of Christ is different from what took place in the Bible.

The rood is a symbol that Jesus was sacrificial for the world. The imagery of the crucifixion scene shows when Christ and the cross were pierced with nails, mocked and drenched with blood by the limits of…

    The Enlightenment cultural matrix picture that I decide to analyze and write about is David. David was well known for defeating Goliath in battle; he only used a rock and slingshot to bring the giant down. Gian Lorenzo Bernini sculpted the statue of David somewhere around 1623 and 1624. The sculpture was marvelously done in exceptional detail, so life like, you actually would think the statue is going to reach out and touch you. I have personally seen some of Bernini’s work and believe it is…

    Dream of the Rood allows the audience to remember the story of the crucifixion and how it made them feel. The emphasis is on the cross and the loyalty is gives to Christ. To connect with his audience, the narrator breaks his dream into three parts. To get the full effect, we must remember how the story of the crucifixion made us feel. Dream of the Rood is similar to Christian George Stevens’ The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965) because both show commitment to the cross. The GSET takes the most…

    The Dream of the Rood The Dream of the Rood is an Old English, allegorical retelling of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ from a different point of view.

    Christianity and Christians are honest about their lives when posting. There are definitely teens arguing that social media is an effective way to share Jesus. This is true in part: Social media can be used to notify people of Jesus-related events, but if Jesus is not being portrayed correctly on social media, non-Christians are not going to show up at the events. It takes people willing to be authentic online to have social media be an effective way to lead people to Jesus. Others claim that…
