Re: Presbyterians' new words for Trinity

kresge ·
Many churches have been using inclusive language for decades now. The PCUSA hymnal was changed to be more inclusive about 15 years ago. Theologically speaking, one of the issues in Trinitarian formulas has to deal with what is referred to as the economy of the deity. Of the formulas given in the article, "Mother, Child and Womb" or "Mother (Parent), Child, Spirit" seem to be the best substitute for "Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Technically speaking, the others to my mind do not represent...

A Strange But Common-Sense Strategy to Lower the SAT Racial Scoring Gap Black students score lower than whites on the more difficult SAT questions. But the racial scoring gap is smaller on the hard questions than it is on the easier SAT questions. As a result, one educational psychologist suggests that the SAT only ask the hardest questions. The author says that if this revision were adopted, the percentage of blacks in the top-scoring group on the SAT would triple. The very large racial gap...

Prophetess, Um, no, "servant" does not mean "preacher." Servant is "doulos," preacher is "kerux."
