I know it's pretty dismal out there, but other things are going on. Let's try to remember this. I'll start with We Are Change's latest video. Luke is always a steady source. Might not talk about everything, or go deep enough sometimes, but still can take a moment to bring up other big things going on.

Return of the Saints
March 31, 2018
Pastor Kent Babbey

All true believers will share in Him resurrection.  Jesus said, “Because I live, you also will live.”  (John 14:19b)

Jesus has already had His resurrection day.  The Apostle Paul wrote about a resurrection day that is coming for Jesus’ followers:  “For the Lord Himself will descend from Heaven with a cry of command, with the voice of an archangel, and with the sound of the trumpet of God.  And the dead in Christ will rise first.”  (1 Thessalonians 4:16)

Today’s Good News is that Jesus conquered the grave, and because He lives, you also can live.

Now, go share the Good News…

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eanswith
Saint Eanswith (Old English: Ēanswīþ; born c. 630, Kent, England. Died c. 650, Folkestone, England), also spelled Eanswythe or Eanswide, was an Anglo Saxon princess, who was said to have founded Folkestone Priory, one of the first Christian monastic communities for women in Britain. In 2020 her remains were conclusively identified; these are the earliest remains yet discovered of an English saint, and of a relative of the British monarch.
 
Tradition has it that Eanswith founded the Benedictine Folkestone Priory, the first nunnery in England. She was supported in this by her father, Eadbald, who ruled as king of Kent from 616 to 640 CE.[4]
 
While the monastery was under construction, a pagan prince came to Kent seeking to marry Eanswythe. King Eadbald, whose sister St. Ethelburga had married the pagan King Edwin two or three years before, recalled that this wedding resulted in Edwin's conversion. Eanswythe, however, refused.[5]
 
This was the first women's monastery to be founded in England. St. Eanswythe lived there with her companions in the monastic life, and they may have been guided by some of the Roman monks who had come to England with St. Augustine in 597

Remains of Anglo-Saxon Princess Analyzed
March 9, 2020
 
FOLKESTONE, ENGLAND-According to a report in The Independent, researchers led by Andrew Richardson of the Canterbury Archaeological Trust have examined and dated human remains from a church in southeast England. The study found that the bones belonged to a young woman who died between the ages of 17 and 21 in the mid-seventh century A.D. An examination of her teeth indicates she ate a refined diet, and her bones show little sign of injury. Researchers plan to analyze DNA samples from the remains to try to detect any possible traces of disease or connection to a royal lineage, because tradition suggests the bones could be the remains of Eanswythe, daughter of the Anglo-Saxon king Eadbald. The princess is remembered as a devout Christian who founded England's first nunnery after she refused to marry, and died in her late teens or early twenties, possibly of bubonic plague. Her remains were moved several times before they were hidden in the church's wall in the sixteenth century, when the Church of England was established and the veneration of saints fell out of favor. The bones were found in the church wall in the late nineteenth century and have since been stored in a special wall niche. To read about Anglo-Saxon kings in the fifth century A.D., go to "The Kings of Kent."

Finding Eanswythe: the life and afterlife of an Anglo-Saxon Saint
 
An exciting new project for Kent starting 2018. Canterbury Christ Church University will be working with local communities to recover an endangered ancient heritage and to bring people together to explore our shared past.
 
    'The whole story of Kentish Christianity, which is so important a part of the history of Anglo-Saxon England, is embodied in this young woman's bones' (Dr Eleanor Parker, University of Oxford).
 
 
This is a community-led project about a nationally important heritage story. Our project spans 1400 years, and focuses on the life and legacy of a remarkable young woman, St Eanswythe, a Kentish royal saint and the granddaughter of Ethelbert, the first English king to convert to Christianity under Augustine. Eanswythe is believed to have founded one of the earliest monastic communities in England (c.630AD) on the Bayle, the historic centre of Folkestone. Over the centuries a rich heritage 'afterlife' has developed around the site and its saint, including a number of intriguing mysteries: the buried course of an ancient aqueduct built to carry water from the downlands to the minster, a lost chapel, and the extraordinary survival of St Eanswythe's relics, carefully concealed at the time of the Reformation in a Roman lead casket only to be rediscovered in the 19th century.
 
This fascinating ancient heritage is 'hiding in plain sight' [Beda: a Journey Through the Seven Kingdoms in the Age of Bede], overshadowed by a modern high-street and rarely visited, with almost no public awareness of its significance; it can be traced in the remains of ancient buildings, the surrounding landscape, folklore, and sources as diverse as manuscripts, superb Victorian art, and local traditions; together these unite local, regional, and national history. Unfortunately, much of this heritage is not well understood and is now in imminent risk from vandalism, pollution, development, and lack of awareness and engagement. Finding Eanswythe invites specialists and community to work together to explore and protect this valuable national heritage before it is too late.

But don't forget St David  (Wales ) !  March 1st ( missed it ... ) St patricks cancelled ...

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_David%27s_Day

Saint David's Day (Welsh: Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Sant or Dydd Gŵyl Dewi, Welsh pronunciation: [ˈdɨːð ˌɡuːɨ̯l ˌdɛu̯.i ˈsant, ˈdiːð ̩ɡʊi̯l ˌdɛu̯.i ˈsant]) is the feast day of Saint David, the patron saint of Wales, and falls on 1 March, the date of Saint David's death in 589 AD. The feast has been regularly celebrated since the canonisation of David in the 12th century, by Pope Callixtus II, though it is not a national holiday in the UK.
...

Saint David (Welsh: Dewi Sant) was born in Caerfai, south west Wales into an aristocratic family.[1][2] He was reportedly a scion of the royal house of Ceredigion,[3] and founded a Celtic monastic community at Glyn Rhosyn (The Vale of Roses) on the western headland of Pembrokeshire (Welsh: Sir Benfro) at the spot where St David's Cathedral stands today.[4]

David's fame as a teacher and his asceticism spread among Celtic Christians, and he helped found about 12 monasteries.[1] His foundation at Glyn Rhosyn became an important Christian shrine,[5] and the most important centre in Wales. The date of Saint David's death is believed to be 1 March 589.[6] His final words to the community of monks were: "Brothers be ye constant. The yoke which with single mind ye have taken, bear ye to the end; and whatsoever ye have seen with me and heard, keep and fulfil."[7]

Traditional festivities include wearing daffodils and leeks, recognised symbols of Wales and Saint David respectively, eating traditional Welsh food including cawl and Welsh rarebit, and women wearing traditional Welsh dress. An increasing number of cities and towns across Wales including Cardiff, Swansea and Aberystwyth also put on parades throughout the day.

Yeah well, I volunteered as one of the 144,000, for real, so you know.
The number I say, represents the 144K not choosing resurrection.
The Churches became largely Apostate from the 4th century.
I am recorded as having done so in the true congregation.
The future christianity must include science & progress.
I hope to manfiest something of this, later this year.

In this life, I can't even remember to put the milk I just bought straight in the fridge.
So you don't have much to worry about from me, in this life. It's about after the resurrection.

Soft Drinks No. 1 Purchase by Food Stamp Recipients; $357,700,000 From 1 Grocery Chain
By Terence P. Jeffrey | November 22, 2016

(CNSNews.com) - Soft drinks were the top commodity bought by food stamp recipients shopping at outlets run by a single U.S. grocery retailer.
...

In calendar year 2011, according to the study, food stamp recipients spent approximately $357,700,000 buying soft drinks from an enterprise the study reveals only as “a leading U.S. grocery retailer.”

That was more than they spent on any other “food” commodity—including milk ($253,700,000), ground beef ($201,000,000), “bag snacks” ($199,300,000) or “candy-packaged” ($96,200,000), which also ranked among the top purchases.

Here’s What People Buy With Food Stamps
Food stamp recipients buy a lot of soda, just like everyone else.
By Arthur Delaney and Alissa Scheller

...
As a percentage of their spending, soft drinks were the top individual commodity among food stamp households, and they came in second place among non-SNAP households.
...

Kevin Concannon, the USDA’s undersecretary for nutrition, said the data shows food stamp recipients’ purchasing patterns are more similar to than different from everyone else’s.

“It’s disappointing in both SNAP households and households with incomes well above SNAP [levels] that as Americans we don’t adequately follow the dietary guidelines,” Concannon said in an interview. “We consume too much sugar.”

"Unanticipated Shock" - Under Armour Lays Off 6,700 Workers, Stores Shuttered "Indefinitely"
04/03/2020 - 15:04

Just days after Under Armor jumped into the mask-making game as it realized its core business of selling sports leisure apparel in overseas and domestic markets collapsed because the virus pandemic has led to global quarantines and shuttering of non-essential businesses. The Baltimore-based sportswear maker announced Friday that its retail stores would remain closed indefinitely and lay off 6,700 employees, reported The Baltimore Sun.

"This unanticipated shock to our business has been acute, forcing us to make difficult decisions to ensure that Under Armour is positioned to participate in the eventual recovery of demand," Patrik Frisk, CEO and president, said in Friday's announcement.

World's First F-Bomb Was Dropped By Bored 16th Century Scottish Student, Locked-Down By Plague

Experts have found the origin of the F-word can be traced back to a Scottish manuscript penned by a student who was in lockdown due to a plague in the 16th century, reported The Scotsman.

An hour-long BBC Scotland documentary, which airs on Tuesday, will show the Bannatyne Manuscript, which was written by George Bannatyne in 1568, while he sat in quarantine at his Edinburgh home.

The manuscript contains The Flyting Of Dunbar And Kennedy, an alleged account of a dual between poet William Dunbar and Walter Kennedy in Edinburgh before the court of King James IV of Scotland in the early 1500s.

In the documentary, Dr. Joanna Kopaczyk, a historical linguistics at Glasgow University, tells viewers:

"In the Flyting of Dunbar and Kennedy, when Kennedy addresses Dunbar, there is the earliest surviving record of the word 'f***' in the world."

Kopaczyk says there is "some very juicy language" in Bannatyne's collection and that Dunbar and Kennedy exchange insults with one phrase that said: "wan fukkit funling."

She adds: "We are looking at a 500-year-old object. It's a very precious manuscript and you can see the actual handwriting."

African Locust Outbreak Returns; Second Wave Approximately 20 Times Larger
04/11/2020 - 08:45

Shortly before Coronavirus began sweeping the globe, the largest locust plague in 70 years was sweeping through various countries in Africa.



According to the Associated Press, they're back - with a second wave of the destructive, crop-eating insects up to 20x as large as the first which are swarming by the billions.

The young desert locusts have left their breeding grounds in Somalia, where they will search and destroy fresh vegetation resulting from seasonal rains. This in turn has caused locals to band together to try and combat them, only to risk spreading coronavirus, according to the report.

It is the locusts that “everyone is talking about,” said Yoweri Aboket, a farmer in Uganda. “Once they land in your garden they do total destruction. Some people will even tell you that the locusts are more destructive than the coronavirus. There are even some who don’t believe that the virus will reach here.”

LEGEND DEAD Sir Stirling Moss dead at 90: F1 legend passes away following long illness
12 Apr 2020, 17:57Updated: 12 Apr 2020, 18:56

SIR Stirling Moss has died aged 90 after a long illness, his wife Susan announced today.

The motor racing legend "died as he lived, looking wonderful" in the early hours of Easter Day, Lady Moss said.

...

Moss rose to fame after the Second World War and went on to be acclaimed as the greatest all-round racer ever.

Though Moss famously never won the Formula One title, he finished runner-up four times and came third three times in a career during which he won 16 Grands Prix.

FI commentator Martin Brundle paid tribute to Sir Stirling, calling him a "mighty racer and gentleman".

Happy Anny Notre Dame
Many times in my life I have had waking dreams of flying over Paris  , seeing the Eiffel tower , the left bank ,,, and Notre Dame ...
I always wondered where did that come from ?  Why ?


https://summit.news/2020/04/16/one-year-later-cause-of-notre-dame-fire-remains-a-mystery/
One Year Later, Cause of Notre Dame Fire Remains a Mystery
Investigation delayed by coronavirus lockdown.
Published 3 mins ago on 16 April, 2020
Paul Joseph Watson

One year after a fire nearly destroyed the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, the cause of the blaze remains a mystery.

On April 15, 2019, the 850 year old gothic building was engulfed in flames, sending its iconic spire crumbling to the ground.

Despite police initially asserting that an electrical short circuit was the probable cause of the fire, Europe Echaffaudage said that the electricity supply to the two lifts on the site “was perfectly within specifications and well maintained.”

12 months on and there is no official conclusion as to how the fire started.
...


As the video below documents, in the days after the fire, BuzzFeed ran a fake news hoax denying that Muslims had celebrated the fire, despite evidence of this being manifestly provable.

I posted a video from Facebook showing users with Islamic names reacting to the burning cathedral with thumbs up and smiley face emoticons.

BuzzFeed then claimed in an article, “the video in question does not show what people on Facebook were reacting to.”

This was a complete lie. The video clearly shows the Notre Dame Cathedral burning in the background.

A year after the Notre Dame fire, its bells ring in support of health care workers

The bells usually only sound during special religious occasions. They rang on Wednesday, a year after the great cathedral was nearly destroyed in a fire.
In unison with the French people who have gotten into the habit of applauding health care workers from their windows at 8 p.m. every night, the great bell of Notre-Dame de Paris rang for just over five minutes this Wednesday, April 15.

A year ago, at the same time, the building was fighting the flames of the catastrophic fire that destroyed the cathedral’s roof and spire.

Police in Paris “NO-GO Muslim zones” are becoming overwhelmed trying to maintain the nationwide quarantine and have handed out record numbers of fines. Despite a national lockdown, police in several French NO-GO Zones were subjected to violent attacks over the weekend as authorities struggle to maintain the strict measures.



ABC News The heavily Muslim migrant-populated Seine-Saint-Denis area is proving to be a tough area for police to enforce the nationwide anti-coronavirus quarantine ordered by French president Emmanuel Macron, with police officers admitting that they are overwhelmed.

Earthquake centered at Area51 -  What could that be?

A classic 80's rock song ...










Mistress -  China Lake

https://www.foxnews.com/us/earthquake-nevada-felt-from-utah-to-california

A magnitude 6.5 earthquake struck in remote western Nevada early Friday, according to the U.S. Geological Service, shaking people from Utah to California — and some pointing out it happened near Area 51.

The temblor was reported at 4:03 a.m. about 35 miles outside Tonopah, just east of the Sierra Nevada range. First recorded as a 6.4 earthquake, the USGS later upgraded it to a 6.5 magnitude.
...
The initial quake struck about 4.7 miles deep, the USGS said, and at least six sizable aftershocks were recorded shortly thereafter, including two with estimated magnitudes of 5.4. The USGS has advised that Nevada will continue to experience more earthquakes than usual as aftershocks continue throughout the day.
...
A good number of reactions, though, noted the earthquake originated around the infamous Area 51, spurring a number of jokes that the earthquake was caused by aliens. In a year that has already included a pandemic, the threat of murder hornets and heightened hurricane activity, an Area 51 earthquake seemed to be fitting.

China Lake Commissary reopens after withstanding two major earthquakes
Jul 11, 2019 – MyBaseGuide

FORT LEE, Va. The commissary at Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake, California, reopened to limited shopping July 9, less than a week after two major earthquakes rocked Southern California.

“Outstanding news, and we appreciate the Herculean lift it has been for our commissary team members to get to this stage in the game,” said Navy Capt. Paul M. Dale, base commander. “Thank you very much.”

The China Lake Commissary opened at 9 a.m. with water and other emergency purchases available at the front of the store, said store manager Philippe Gonzaga.
...
Although basic services are slowly returning, China Lake is not “mission capable” and remains closed except for mission essential personnel, according to the installation’s Facebook page. Power and water have been restored to most of the base since the July 5 earthquake, but engineers are still assessing the structural integrity of its buildings.
...
According to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), the epicenter of the two earthquakes, the first being a magnitude 6.4, which occurred July 4, and the second a 7.1 which hit the next day, was located on the base. China Lake is about 150 miles north of Los Angeles in the Western Mojave... Desert.
