One lesson we may take from reading this history is that fortune is whimsical. It bestows friendship upon some, while to others it turns a cold shoulder. Whether a lesson is learned or ... more

Thanks to our experience and our nature as beings with physical limitations, it makes perfect sense for us to think about doing things and receiving information through instruments. Be it by means of a TV, radio, or telephone, an ATM or a computer, we usually conceive of receiving items or information by way of a device. In Christian theology, the means of grace function as t... more
