  1. The impending water crisis and water rights.

    Well, we've got a love for Lake Huron in common then.
  2. The impending water crisis and water rights.

    I never thought to rank them But I guess Superior would make the bottom of my list; I always forget it exists. When I lived on the water I can remember the days when the water wasnt safe to swim because the town had built its sewage overflow too close to shore. If memory serves it happened a lot.
  3. The impending water crisis and water rights.

    I currently live in Eastern Ontario - Ottawa being the nearest notable city. The spring is in Quebec. I grew up close to both Lake Erie and Huron (also close enough to cross border into Michigan every now and then). I lived along Huron for a while. Its beautiful. The way our two Nations utilize the lakes as resources is really important to me too. We need to coordinate our sustainability efforts. And in many ways we do, but both Nations have been drawing too much water out of Lake Erie for instance.

    Ephesians 6:13-17 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. 15 As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace. 16 With all of these,[b] take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.

    No one denies that Christianity began with Christ. Your info graphic correctly demonstrates the facts of the birth of the Roman Catholic Church. I would have been more giving ad let it be pope leo, but many sources only have a firm institution later as indicated.
  6. My fuzzy brain instantly read this to the melody of 'Sitting On A Dock In The Bay' I cant reproduce it, but it worked initially

    "we" ?

    (unrelated, stand alone post) I love this rendition of this traditional song. Theres varied lyrics. This one includes this couplet, which i find powerful "oh come clear wisdom, come with all you bring/ we see you now disguised as everything"

    Catholics believing something internally doesn't really mean anything though. I don't understand why you posted an info graphic that doesnt support your words?
  10. The impending water crisis and water rights.

    Theres a public spring water well down the highway from me. Its delicious and mineral rich. We should all be demanding this in a water wealthy country like Canada. Between pollution/contamination and NAFTA it makes it difficult. But achievable.

    This info graphic has the Catholic church starting at the latest possible point in the time frame that Ive been saying. And it doesnt indicate it starting in the Apostolic era. So Id like to ask for clarification. Given this info graphic, are you saying you're behind the idea that because the early church was seen as universal (with out sects) to mean that the Roman Catholic Church has always been? Just because they adopted the word Universal? It was the official Church of the Empire. Thats where words like Universal have meaning. Also it is a sect - and has paganism with in it for one - which would mean it could not exist in a pre-sectarian, universal Christian world. Then theres the definition of Orthodox. Orthodox meaning "true" "right" "traditional" "original" "ordinary or usual type; normal" To me, and many others, it looks like those two hyper institutionalized sects went head to head finding powerful and authoritarian names when they came into being through newly emerging definitions at the ecumenical councils. Because by defining their identity from one another, they in a sense lost half their congregation.
