(This is the best explanation of the meaning of the
Advent and Christmas season I have seen)
THE MONTH OF DECEMBER BRINGS WITH IT THE SEASON
OF ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS. It'S ALWAYS BEEEN MY
FAVORITE TIME OF THE YEAR, BECAUSE IT SHOW US
POWERFULLY AND PRACTICALLY HOW OUR CHRISTIAN
FAITH ENTERED THE WORLD. THE INCARNATION IS
UNIQUE AMONG WORLD RELIGIONS. THE WAY I LIKE TO
SAY IT: IN CHRIST, GOD HITS THE STREETS. CHRISTMAS
GIVES CHRISTIANS THE ANNUAL OPPORTUNITY TO
REMEMBER THE INCARNATION OF GOD'S LOVE
BREAKING INTO THE WORLD--HOW IT DID AND HOW
IT STILLL CAN.
ADVENT IS ABOUT WAITING, AND CHRITMAS BRINGS THE
NEWBORN WHO ANNOUNCES A NEW ORDER MEANT TO
TURN THE WORLD UPSIDE DOWN--AND OUR LIVES WITH IT.
CHRISTMAS ALWAYS RENEWS MY COMMITMENT TO BRING
THAT REVOLUTIONARY LOVE INTO A WORLD THAT SO
DESPERATELY NEEDS IT, AND INTO MY OWN LIFE AGAIN.
IN THE BUSTLE OF OUR DAILY LIVES, WITH ALL OF THE
DISTRACTIONS AND STRUGGLES THAT COME OUR WAY--
EVEN IN CHRISTIAN... (more)

Release date: 2015
Quality: 320kbps | 44.1 kHz | Stereo | 734 MBRewind, just 5 short years, and the expression Pure Trance was no more than one artists encapsulation of his own output. Over the course of the following 12 months that solidified into his mission statement, before he catalysed it into a scene-wide, brighter day battle cry. It tapped into the fans shared consciousness, caught the current and nailed their prevailing mood: Pure Trance had become pure zeitgeist! With rolling-boulder momentum, it gathered pace, hijacking Trances centre-ground. Now, (still, at just the tender age of 4), Pure Trance has established it self as the genres new bedrock...

The Process Your Government and Soviet Education
Bush, Gorbachev, Shultz & Soviet Education
Crossroad.to -- by Berit Kjos - 1999
George W. Bush,
Mikhail Gorbachev, George Shultz and your children -- how are they linked? Why does it matter?
And who is George
Shultz? How did he help rewrite history, redefine morality, and
prepare America to accept the new socialist values that are paving
the way to the new world order?
If you are as concerned as I am about America's shift from
traditional values and factual education to global values and
psycho-social strategies for "lifelong learning," you
would want to know the answers. You might also wonder why Texas
Governor George W. Bush would choose George Shultz, who negotiated
the 1985 U.S.-USSR Education Exchange
Agreement, as advisor on his presidential exploratory committee.
Or why Robert Dole chose Shultz as an advisor during his
quest for the presidency in 1996.
