Teleios Research Surveys Young Evangelicals About Teaching the Bible

GOOSE CREEK, SOUTH CAROLINA, USA, August 7, 2018 / — Teleios Research recently surveyed adolescents and millennials regarding their perceptions on what they define as teaching the Bible, and their own Bible teaching habits. The survey was promoted on the Christian Instagram accounts, InstaPray and GodsHolyScriptures. Of the 230 respondents the majority were: female (63%), <35 years old (86%), from the United States (68%), and evangelical (73%).

The results showed that about 27% of participants indicated they teach directly from the Bible at a pre-arranged time at least once a week. In contrast, 40% responded they never instruct others in scripture.

For those who do not teach at least once a week the most common reasons were: that they do not know enough scripture (42%); do not know how to teach (but would like to learn, 37%); or might make a mistake (34%). Interestingly, only 11% answered ‘they already teach once a week or more’ (in contrast to the 27% noted above when asked directly if they teach) indicating that there may be 16% (27% -11%) who perceive they teach when asked directly but then give reasons why they do not teach. This finding indicates some Christians might overestimate their frequency of teaching when asked directly.

For those who do teach at least once a week, their preferred method was verse by verse (32%). In addition, their favorite venue in which to instruct was in a small group, in person (27%); or one-on-one, in-person (19%).

Participants indicated that additional potential valid informal ways to teach scripture were: to write encouraging notes or letters (62%); strengthening others verbally with scripture verses (62%); and living a godly lifestyle (71%). However, 70% agreed that verse by verse teaching had more value than informal techniques.

In total, 81% of respondents said the Bible was completely true. In general, respondents had good wellbeing (4.5/6.0 with 6.0 being the best wellbeing). However, those who regularly train others in the Bible (4.8/6.0) reported better wellbeing than those who infrequently (4.1/6.0) or did not (4.4/6.0) teach the Bible (P= 0.003).

The survey suggests that young evangelicals generally recognize the importance of verse-by-verse teaching to others and want to learn how to instruct others. Those who teach experience better wellbeing than those who do not. Nonetheless, young evangelicals are often reticent to teach fearing they are not capable or are not able to answer questions. Further, some may overestimate how frequently they teach the Bible.

All the findings of the survey can be found on Survey Monkey as well as other findings from Teleios Research are on our website.

தமிழர்கள் ஸ்ரீலங்காவின் புதிய அரசியலமைப்பை நிராகரிக்க வேண்டும், இல்லையென்றால் அமெரிக்கா நெம்புகோலை இழந்துவிடும்.

ஸ்ரீலங்காவின் புதிய அரசியலமைப்பின் மீதான வாக்கெடுப்பு

ஸ்ரீலங்காவின் புதிய அரசியலமைப்பின் மீதான வாக்கெடுப்பு

போஸ்னியன் பாணி கூட்டாட்சி அறிமுகப்படுத்தப்படவில்லை என்றால், தமிழர்கள் தமிழீழம்தொடர்பான கோரிக்கையை திரும்பப் பெறுவார்கள் என்பது யதார்த்தம்.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, USA, August 6, 2018 / — தமிழர்கள் ஸ்ரீலங்காவின் புதிய அரசியலமைப்பை நிராகரிக்க வேண்டும், இல்லையென்றால்அமெரிக்கா, ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியம் மற்றும் இந்தியா ஆகியவை தங்கள் நெம்புகோலை இழந்துவிடும்.

புதிய அரசியலமைப்பில் என்ன இருக்கும் என்று எவருக்கும் தெரியாது.

ஆனால் டாக்டர் ஜெயம்பதியின் கூற்றின்படி, இலங்கையில் ஒற்றை ஆட்சி தான் புதிய அரசியல் அமைப்பில் இருப்பதும், மாகாண சபைகளுக்கு அரசியலமைப்பில் ஒரு அதிகாரமும் இல்லை என்பதும் வட கிழக்கு இணைப்பு இல்லை என்பதும் உறுதி செய்துள்ளார்.

எனவே, தமிழர்கள் ஒற்றை ஆட்சியை நிராகரிக்க வேண்டும். ஒற்றை ஆட்சியில் 2/3 அதிகாரங்கள் சிங்களவர்களுக்கு உரியது. எனவே அவர்கள் விரும்பும் அனைத்தையும் செய்யமுடியும். தமிழ் கிராமங்கள் மற்றும் அவர்களது நிலங்களைக் கைப்பற்றுவது, சிங்களகுடியேற்றங்கள், தமிழீழத்தில் இராணுவத்தை வைத்திருப்பது, சிங்கள பொலிஸ் மற்றும்இராணுவத்தினரால் அச்சுறுத்தல் மூலம் தமிழர்களை அடிமையாக வைத்து கொள்வது, மற்றும் எம்மால் ஏற்றுக்கொள்ள முடியாத செயல்கள் ஆகியவற்றை மேற்கொள்ளல்.

தமிழர்களுக்கு சம உரிமைகள் வழங்க கூடிய அரசியல் அமைப்பு கூட்டாட்சி (சம்ஷடி) அரசியலமைப்பு அல்லது தனி நாடு மட்டுமே.

போஸ்னியா பாணி கூட்டாட்சிவாதம், சிங்களம் மற்றும் தமிழர்களுக்கு சம அந்தஸ்தை கொடுக்கும் . போஸ்னிய பாணியில் கூட்டாட்சிவாதத்தை ஸ்ரீலங்கா நிராகரிக்கிறார்கள் என்றால். தமிழர்கள் தமிழீழத்திற்கான கோரிக்கைக்கு திரும்பிச் செல்ல வேண்டும். அதாவது ஸ்ரீலங்காவில் இருந்து வட, கிழக்கு பிரிவினையை உண்டுபண்ண முயற்சிகளை செய்யவேண்டும்.

குறிப்பு: போஸ்னிய பாணி கூட்டாட்சி என்பது அமெரிக்க மற்றும் பிற சக்திவாய்ந்த நாடுகளின் இனத்துவ யுத்தத்தைத் தவிர்க்க சமீபத்திய அரசியலமைப்பு அங்கீகாரம் ஆகும்.

அமெரிக்கா, ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியம் மற்றும் பிற முக்கிய செல்வந்தர்கள் மற்றும் சக்திவாய்ந்தநாடுகளில் பிரச்சாரம் செய்வதன் மூலம், தமிழீழம் பெற முடியும். இதையே பின்வரும் நாடுகள் பிரச்சாரம் செய்வதன் மூலம் வெற்றி பெற்றார்கள். அமெரிக்கா மற்றும் ஐரோப்பியஒன்றியத்தில் தாங்கள் ஒடுக்கப்பட்டவர்களிடமிருந்து முழுமையான பிரிவு பட பிரச்சாரம்செய்து வெற்றி பெற்றார்கள் : தென் சூடான், கிழக்கு திமோர், கொசோவா, போஸ்னியா …

புதிய அரசியலமைப்பை கொண்டு வருவதன் மூலம் ஸ்ரீலங்கா பல பெரிய வெற்றிகளை அடைய முடியும்.

1. இலங்கையில் இந்தியாவின் நெம்புகோல் 13 வது திருத்தம் மட்டுமே . புதிய அரசியலமைப்பு 13 வது திருத்தத்தை அகற்றும். இது தானாகவே இந்தியாவின் நெம்புகோல் தன்மையை குறைக்கும், மற்றும் இலங்கைக்கு இந்தியாவின் அச்சுறுத்தல் குறைக்கப்படும். இதனால், இந்தியாவின் ஈடுபாடு நீக்கப்படும்.

2. வடக்கு-கிழக்கு இணைப்பு 13 வது திருத்தத்தில் மட்டுமே உள்ளது. புதிய அரசியலமைப்பு, வடக்கு கிழக்கு இணைப்பின் இந்திய அதிகாரத்தை அகற்றுவது மட்டுமில்லாமல், வட-கிழக்கை இணைப்பு இல்லாமல் போய்விடும். இது எதிர்காலத்தில் கூட வடக்கு கிழக்கு சாத்தியமான இணைப்புக்கு தடை போடும்.

3. புதிய அரசியலமைப்பு, பிரதமர் மோடியினால் முன்மொழியப்பட்ட கூட்டுறவு-கூட்டாட்சி(Cooperative Federalism) க்கு ஒரு முடிவுகட்டும் . வட-கிழக்கு தமிழர்களுக்கு ஒரு நிரந்தரசுதந்திரமான , பாதுகாப்பான மற்றும் பாதுகாக்கப்பட்ட தமிழ் தாயகத்தை பெற்று கொடுப்பது இந்தியாவின் தார்மீக கடமை என தமிழர்கள் காலம் காலமாய் நம்புகிறார்கள். இதன் காரணமாக, இந்தியாவில் இருந்து கூட்டுறவு-கூட்டாச்சி பெறும் வாய்ப்பை இழக்க நேரிடும்.

4. ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியமும் அமெரிக்காவும் அரசியலமைப்பு மாற்றத்தை கட்டாயப்படுத்தியது. ஏனெனில் தமிழீழம் வேண்டுமென்ற தமிழர்களின் குரல்களை நிறுத்துவதன் காரணமாககூட்டாட்சி (சமஷ்டி)அரசியலமைப்பை ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியமும் அமெரிக்காவும் ஆதரிக்கிறது. இந்த பயனற்ற அரசியலமைப்பின் காரணமாக, ஒன்றும் இல்லாமல் முடிவடையும்.

5. எதிர்கால சர்வசன வாக்கெடுப்புக்கும் சில தடைகளை உருவாக்கும்.

நாம் ஒற்றையாட்சி அரசை ஏற்றுக் கொண்டால், அரசியல் தீர்வைப் பற்றி பேச்சுவார்த்தை எதுவும் எதிர்காலத்தில் இருக்காது. சிங்களவர்கள் சொல்வார்கள் இப்போது அரசியல் பிரச்சனை தீர்ந்து விட்டது என்று.

எனவே, இந்த தமிழரசுக் கட்சி பாராளுமன்ற உறுப்பினர்களிடம் சொல்லுங்கள், தமிழர்கள் எந்த அரசியல் அரசியலமைப்பு மாற்றங்களையும் ஆதரிக்க மாட்டார்கள் என்று.

அமெரிக்கா, ஐரோப்பிய ஒன்றியம், இந்தியா ஆகியவை புதிய அரசியலமைப்பு உருவாக்கத்தில்பங்கேற்க வேண்டும். நாங்கள் தமிழ் தேசியக் கூட்டமைப்பு மற்றும் சிங்கள மக்களை நம்புவதில்லை.

அரசியலமைப்பு மாற்றங்களில் போஸ்னிய பாணி கூட்டாட்சி என்பது நமக்குத் தேவை. போஸ்னிய பாணி கூட்டாட்சி என்பது அமெரிக்க மற்றும் பிற சக்திவாய்ந்த நாடுகளின் இனத்துவ யுத்தத்தைத் தவிர்க்க சமீபத்திய அரசியலமைப்பு அங்கீகாரம் ஆகும்.

போஸ்னியன் பாணி கூட்டாட்சி அறிமுகப்படுத்தப்படவில்லை என்றால், தமிழர்கள் தமிழீழம் தொடர்பான கோரிக்கையை திரும்பப் பெறுவார்கள் என்பது யதார்த்தம்.

“The Healing School has been a source of joy to many over the years, bringing God’s healing power to the sick, diseased and infirmed through faith in God’s Word. It’s the place of the demonstration of Christ’s compassions, where hopeless situations are turned around, and the dead are raised to life from debilitating illnesses and infirmities of all kinds: HIV, diabetes, cancer, heart conditions, severe migraines and more,” says the organization behind the event.

He shared that after he received healing at the Healing School, his injuries recovered and he could play again.

The August Healing Sessions welcomed people from all over the world, free of charge and also provided various assistance to the attendees for the visa for the foreign visitors, transportation and suitable accommodation, in proximity to the Healing School Complex.

Mary Titus to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

LAGUNA BEACH, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2018 / — There are millions of people who pursue high income jobs so they can live lavish carefree existence. Some others follow career paths that involve helping others because they have empathetic hearts. But there are those exceptional individuals that are so notably compassionate towards other living beings that they genuinely make a prolific difference in the world that is remarkably commendable.

Mary Titus is a top notch Certified Life Coach and consultant for the home health industry for over 35 plus years and currently the Director of Home Health at St. Joseph Home Health.

“I have studied almost every aspect of alternative healing,” says Mary. “Since I was five years old I intently wanted to put a band aid on everyone’s owies. It was a very idealistic way to start life as a young child but I was determined to practice that in my life.”

Mary attributes her high level of empathy from growing up in a family of a lot of children from different ethnicities. When she went into home health care she became immersed in the AIDS crisis in the 80’s, she became deeply involved working with patients stricken with the disease and started an HIV program for women. She tirelessly advocated for patients attending schools, workplaces, and any organization to educate people about the disease. After becoming compelled and deeply engrossed by alternative healing she assiduously began studying several different areas and became a Reiki Master teacher and a certified Master Hypnotherapist.

“When someone approaches me for coaching and if they truly want to get better they unequivocally and certainly will,” says Mary. “All healing is self- healing and every person helps themselves so I’m simply a facilitator for someone else to improve, deal with life’s challenges, and empower them to follow their dreams.”

During her coaching sessions Mary skillfully determines what her client’s ultimate goals are and what they hope to accomplish and merges their energy with hers.

“When you bring your authentic self into any aspect of what you are doing in life you bring the essence of God or whatever your belief system is into your entire being,” says Mary. “I am an empty shell of someone’s belief and embrace those beliefs. I encourage them to realize what wonderful humans they are and all the talent and gifts they have to enjoy their lives.”

Mary’s benevolent heart also encompasses her love of animals who she affirms have energy just as special as humans do. She has three beloved dogs, is a member of numerous wildlife organizations, and is a dedicated vegan.

“I want to tell everyone wholeheartedly to consistently and self-effacingly be yourself and be yourself perfectly,” says Mary. “Always be mindful to genuinely love who you are and bring that forward in everything you do.”

CUTV news will feature Mary Titus in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on Friday August 3rd at 1 p.m. EST and August 10th at 1 p.m. EST with Jim Masters.

Ambient, Sacred, Orchestral: Composer Peter Calandra Releases Revelatory New Album: Carpe Noctem

Carpe Noctem: an all-original new album of ambient, sacred, orchestral music by composer Peter Calandra.

Peter Calandra: composer, producer, arranger and multi-instrumentalist.

The prolific Film & TV composer reveals his passion for sacred-tinged orchestral music with choir in Carpe Noctem, available now.

To say that Calandra has released a masterpiece in that sub-genre (orchestral choral music) is an understatement…”

— Bill Binkelman

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, August 3, 2018 / — In recent years, Peter Calandra's wide-ranging TV, Film and Broadway music experience has expanded to include four original award-winning albums of ambient, contemporary instrumental, and new age albums. His latest work, Carpe Noctem — the fifth and most adventurous — heralds Calandra's complex talents in a modern approach to sacred-tinged ambient orchestral music that is sure to surprise and delight his listeners. The self-released album, 11 tracks in all, is available today via all major music sales and streaming sites; visit

"To say that Calandra has released a masterpiece in that sub-genre (orchestral choral music) is an understatement," music reviewer Bill Binkelman (Retailing Insights, Wind & Wire) wrote. "Suffused with deep, spiritual feeling, Carpe Noctem ("seize the night") both soars to dramatic, powerful heights yet, at times, also flows with majestic beauty."

Composer, producer, arranger and orchestrator…Calandra has done it all during his prolific career. He’s penned music for Broadway shows, composed for film and TV, created sports anthems and starting in the late 2000s, released dynamic and popular new age recordings. Since his muse darts delightfully in a multitude of offbeat directions, his quote about inspiration shouldn’t surprise the fans he invites along for the adventurous ride: “I’ve always heard music in my head – there is a radio in there playing new music all the time.”

When he sang with his college choir, the ensemble performed a lot of sacred music by the likes of Mozart, Bach and Beethoven, with the text in Latin. Calandra felt inspired learning and performing this music, and the idea to compose and record orchestral music with a choir has been in the back of his mind ever since. Calandra is a one-man band this time around, composing, orchestrating, sequencing and engineering the album, and even creating the haunting, impressionistic cover art of the beach at nighttime.

Music critic Jonathan Widran notes that while Carpe Noctem as a whole is more universalist and spiritual than specifically religious, Calandra draws beautifully on some of the sacred elements of Christianity in creating these contemporary but timeless pieces. His opening track, “Agnus Dei” (Lamb of God) is titled after the invocation to Christ sung or recited during Holy Communion in several church traditions. It’s a majestic piece weaving percussive strings building in intensity, soaring choral voices and soul-stirring celestial atmospheres.

It sets a positive vibe for what is to come. The title “Carpe Noctem” gracefully lends itself to a calming, meditational symphonic piece (with later choir elements) that eases through the senses like a floating dreamscape. The lovely dreams it invokes give way to a slow waking but beautiful morning (“Aurora Scandere,” i.e. Dawn Rising), whose stark simple notes, chiming tones, gentle percussive sway and ultimate action-packed orchestra indicate that the coming day will be a fateful one filled with conflicts and resolutions.

The most overtly religious piece is the alternately beautifully solemn and buoyantly dramatic “Crucifixus” (The Crucifixion), whose bold horn textures and soaring chorus and orchestra swirl around the tragic event as if they’re angels with fore-knowledge that Easter and Glory will arrive soon. On the playful, lighthearted joy burst of “Ars Vitae” (Art is Life), Calandra uses a sweeping blend of strings, synth and voices to leap past the traditional understandings of divinity and share his own personal beliefs – that art is life and life is also art. This piece is influenced by the music of minimalist music pioneer Steve Reich and some of the harmonic material found in the music of Estonian classical/religious composer Arvo Part. Imbued with moments of starkness and quiet and intense symphonic expressions, “Illuminare” (Illumination) creates a thematic arc that takes the listener on a wisdom-imparting whirlwind from stillness to kinetic energy and back again – like an aural movie. The impression is that of soft reflective darkness gradually giving way to a feeling of illumination.

Sometimes a triumphant spiritual life is only achieved after going through life’s many battles, a concept deftly and hypnotically illustrated on “Invictus Bellator” (Unconquered Warrior), whose swirl of dancing piano, haunting string, militaristic percussion and dramatic vocals flows like a soundtrack to a hard battle scene that ends with positive transcendence. The piano element here is one of Calandra’s most tuneful, but it’s the drums that really give us a sense of what it takes to get to that place where divinity takes over from the struggles of life. The divine space includes the beautiful morning trumpet notes that introduce “Mane Pacificae” (Peaceful Morning). There’s a stillness that fills the soul before the world awakes, but the recurring trumpet reminds us like an announcement that this peace is merely a break in life’s action.

Carpe Noctem wraps with a trio of pieces that take us on yet another journey from serenity and reflection to a dynamic conquering of all obstacles and challenges. “Luna Benedictus” (Moon Prayer) is perhaps the album’s most serene new age piece, a gentle, moody meditation that serves as a quiet benediction to nature’s lunar phase. Filled with symphonic light and bright ethereal voices, “Sacrum Spera” (Sacred Trust) is a classically inspired piece that feels like a Mass for the angels. It was influenced by the Bach Cantatas, many created by the composer for church and sacred use.

Carpe Noctem concludes with what feels like a sweeping plea for planetary healing via “Spiritus Mundi” (World Spirit), using ebb and flow styled sonic modulations of the orchestral elements to create a richly emotional tapestry that calls to each of our hearts, yet all at the same time. It ends the collection on a high hopeful note, full of energy, light and possibility – the perfect completion of an extraordinary 50-minute journey.

IT Governance targets industry readiness with NIS Regulations surveys

ELY, CAMBRIDGESHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, August 3, 2018 / — Ely, United Kingdom, 03 August 2018 – Two new surveys, aimed at discovering how prepared organisations are for the NIS Regulations (the Network & Information Systems Regulations 2018), has been launched by IT Governance.

By completing either of these surveys you stand a chance of winning a voucher worth £300 that can be used against any product or service purchased from IT Governance. Click here to take part.

The NIS Regulations became UK law on 10 May 2018 and transposes the NIS Directive (Directive on security of network and information systems). With the NIS Regulations applying to both OES and DSPs, IT Governance has launched two surveys to understand industry compliance. Non-compliance could lead to a fine of up to £17 million.

Industry compliance remains in the early days of adoption but with the regulation only affecting certain organisation types many are still unaware that they need to comply. The aim of this survey is to help organisations assess their own general awareness and readiness to meet the NIS Regulations’ requirements and gain a clear picture of the NIS Regulations landscape.

Are you an OES?
The NCSC (National Cyber Security Centre) has published 14 high-level principles that OES are expected to implement in their compliance projects. A CAF (cyber assessment framework) has been developed from these principles that will be used during audits of OES to ensure they are meeting all the necessary requirements.

Are you a DSP?
The NIS Regulations also reinforce DSPs’ compliance with the Commission Implementing Regulation, which outlines the steps DSPs must take to comply with the NIS Regulations. Because of DSPs’ cross-border nature, the Commission Implementing Regulation applies to all DSPs across the EU.

Last month IT Governance announced a gap analysis service which assesses an organisation’s cyber security arrangements and provides a clear action plan to improve current levels of compliance with the NIS Regulations.

Energy Therapist Dr. Ronald Boivin to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

EDMONTON, ALBERTA, CANADA, August 2, 2018 / — Recent studies indicate that positive thinking does not help much with curing cancer. That may be true, but we can improve the quality of life for these patients and their families during this difficult time.

Dr. Ronald Boivin is an energy therapist specializing in complementary medicine to support people as they navigate medical issues, mental health, even spiritual issues. Dr. Boivin supports his clients along with other healthcare professionals and counseling professionals to help get them through the rough spots and resolve any difficulties they many have.

“People with chemotherapy will typically come to me the day before or day of their chemotherapy treatment,” explains Dr. Boivin. “We do energy treatments on their body to make sure that the electricity in their body flows properly and that any anxiety they have can be reduced to a manageable rate.”

Dr. Boivin possesses a strong background in the sciences, theology and in the liberal arts. He accesses all of that knowledge to help an individual client or family or group of people to get through whatever difficulties that are preventing them from living in peace.

“It's a matter of helping these people navigate this experience with grace and dignity without having too much damage to the body or spirit or social systems or their family,” Dr. Boivin.

Dr. Boivin knows firsthand how difficult this process can be. In 1992, he was been diagnosed many years ago with a terminal liver illness.

“My specialist informed me I would likely be dead within a couple of years,” recalls Dr. Boivin, “but he said if there's one man who can help me, it was a medical doctor who was also an acupuncturist and traditional Chinese healer. This was in 1992. As you can tell, I'm still very much alive. I studied with this medical doctor and that's what led me into the energy area. Then I studied energy psychology and energy medicine and started looking at all the different healing techniques that offered some sort of healing help for people.”

Dr. Boivin says he made a deal with the divine. He couldn’t be selfish; he had to share what he’d learned with others who may not have the strength and good fortune to do so.

“I’m proud of my ability to improve the world by dealing with one issue at a time. That is really my intention, to help people see some hope. It's a very, very real thing for me because I was given that chance of hope. I really want to give that to other people as well.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Dr. Ronald Boivin in an interview with Jim Masters on August 6th at 12pm EDT.

In Their Own Words: More Extraordinary Stories From Ordinary People

Fatima Alexander, Publisher

The magazine that will be read and re-read over the years

I’d never planned to reach so many people with my own words, but have been inspired by the experiences and achievements of so many others.”

— Fatima Alexander

ALEXANDRIA, VA, US, August 1, 2018 / — I Am Unashamed, LLC
August 1, 2018

Alexandria, VA: Noted author and journalist, Fatima Alexander, has announced August 15, 2018 as the international distribution date for the next issue of I Am Unashamed. This unique publication has not only been recognized as a magazine, coffee table book and guide to overcoming life’s challenges, this next issue continues the testimonies by and for a worldwide audience, from all walks of life, backgrounds and circumstance.

In her first book, The Faith of Hannah, Ms Alexander recounted her own life experiences and the tests of faith far beyond those of the Biblical Job. After escaping an abusive relationship, with two children in tow, this single-mom found solace and sanity in beginning a personal journal. Confronted with a series of family tragedies, trials and against all odds, Fatima has taken life’s lemons and made enough lemonade to serve everyone who has shared her thirst.

That catharsis evolved into a book and has now become an international periodical, safe haven, for both readers and contributors alike. I Am Unashamed is far more than a “magazine”. In content and esthetics, every issue is intended and designed to endure the use and abuse of “book-quality” reference volumes. What started as a “Dear Diary” concept, now reaches an ever-growing global audience, has a new state-of-the-art studio and has become a planetary mission.

Articles encompass 1st person accounts of those who have survived and thrived in spite of poverty, disability, abuse, addiction, criminal convictions and all the other obstacles that life throws at all of us.

In her most recent press interview, despite her own success story, Fatima has explained, “I’ve never considered myself to be a professional writer or journalist. I’d never planned to reach so many people with my own words, but have been inspired by the experiences and achievements of so many others. I began writing only to avoid total despair, maintain my sanity and leave a legacy to my two boys. The stories that I write are no longer mine; they are those of average folks who have accomplished heroic feats. We welcome and encourage everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to share and be published. Only their story is important – we don’t care about spelling or grammar. Together we will find, develop and write their story the way it was meant to be told.

Past and future editions of I Am Unashamed, as well as The Faith of Hannah, are always available to both the U.S. and international markets through , , and .

Current and upcoming issues of I Am Unashamed are already in the publication process. Submissions for September 2019 are now being actively solicited. Continued success of the publication – and the lives it touches – is driven by readership and their input.

Generous Donation Enables Wartburg's Historic Chapel Upgrades Including Hearing Assistance and Telecast

MT. VERNON, NEW YORK, USA, July 27, 2018 / — Generous Donation Enables Wartburg’s Historic Chapel Upgrades Including Hearing Assistance and Telecast in Residential Facilities

Mount Vernon, NY (July 20, 2018) Wartburg, a premier senior residential and healthcare provider in lower Westchester, has recently completed upgrades to its historic chapel on its beautiful, 34-acre campus.

Wartburg’s Chapel, built in 1904, hosts ecumenical services for its residents as well as Sunday Services for United Lutheran Church. The Chapel is also the destination of worship to over 500 seniors, many of whom have hearing impairments. As a result of the upgrades, the Chapel now uses a Hearing Aid Induction Loop which allows those with hearing aids to directly pick up audio from the sound system. Headsets are also available for those individuals who do not use hearing aids and may need amplified sound.

In addition to the Hearing Aid Induction Loop, those with mobility issues in the nursing home and Rehabilitation Center are now able to view services in the comfort of their rooms through Senior TV, offered in both locations. To improve the overall sound quality in the chapel, a high definition camcorder and an audio Digital Signal Processor (DSP) was also installed. The DSP connects to the existing sound system in the Chapel to provide a much more consistent level sound input to the camera. As a result, Wartburg is now able to broadcast events, such as concerts, in the Chapel to the nursing home, Rehabilitation Center and Adult Day Services with high definition video and sound.

Pastor Carol Fryer, Senior Pastor of United Lutheran Church, Director of Wartburg Spiritual Care, said: “We are so grateful to have the ability to broadcast our Sunday services so that our residents may watch the service when they are not able to physically attend due to illness or bad weather. Plus the Hearing Loop is fabulous for anyone with hearing loss. The gifts that made this possible have added significantly to the Spiritual Care of our residents.”

These upgrades were generously funded though the benevolence of Wartburg supporters. “We are so very grateful to our donors who have made these technology upgrades possible and will enable more of our residents to benefit from worship services in our historic chapel,” said David Gentner, Wartburg President & CEO.

Meadowview Resident Ethel Clausen (pictured), said: “With the T-coil setting in my hearing aids, I can hear every word. Before I lost so much that I couldn’t get the meaning of things. It has made a world of difference! I’m so pleased that we got the T-coil.”

About Wartburg
Wartburg, located in Westchester County, NY, offers integrated, comprehensive senior residential and healthcare services. Unlike conventional retirement communities, Wartburg provides a wide range of services to both residents living on their beautiful 34-acre campus and people in their own homes.

Wartburg’s 6th Annual Jazz in June Gala
Raises over $290,000
Featuring Blind, Award Winning, Creative Aging Artist, Rachel Gonzalez

Mount Vernon, N.Y. (July 7, 2018) – Wartburg, an award-winning provider of comprehensive senior residential and healthcare services, hosted their 6th annual Jazz in June – A Wartburg Celebration of Arts and Music gala on June 20, 2018 raising over $290,000 to support Wartburg’s internationally recognized, award-winning Creative Aging & Lifelong Learning program at Wartburg. The event was held at the Surf Club on the Sound in New Rochelle, NY, with nearly 330 guests and over 55 sponsors. This year’s event included a moving story of triumph over adversity as blind Adult Day Care registrant, Rachel Gonzalez, described her experience in the Creative Aging program at Wartburg.

Diagnosed with Acute Uveitis at the age of 23, Rachel Gonzalez began losing her sight until, by the age of 32, she was legally blind. When Rachel joined the Wartburg family a few years ago, she found great joy in her weekly art class through the Creative Aging program. She light-heartedly shared with the audience at Jazz in June, “No one said, ‘Hey, blind lady, what are you doing in an art class?’” Rachel beamed with pride as she shared the painting that earned her a LeadingAge New York Art Competition award. Rachel’s testimony highlighted the evening that supported the importance of the arts and aging at Wartburg.

Wartburg Jazz in June honorees were humbled by the impact of the Creative Aging program and took pride in supporting and partnering with an agency dedicated to nurturing the body, mind and spirit. Warburg honored:

Christina Staudt, PhD, President and Co-Founder, Westchester End-of-Life Coalition (WELC), NorthEast Community Bank, Anthony Alfano, Vice President and Executive Director, Montefiore New Rochelle, Macedonia Baptist Church and Biodex Medical Systems, Inc.

In addition to honoring Dr. Staudt, Dr. David J. Gentner, Wartburg President and CEO announced a new partnership that would allow Wartburg to act as the new home for WELC. Staudt said, “I am excited that WELC has found such a splendid home for our programs.”

Wartburg’s Jazz in June has become a hallmark event for lower Westchester. I extend my deepest gratitude to this year’s honorees, the event sponsors, and the many dedicated volunteers who helped create a spectacular evening,” said Dr. Gentner.

The night’s festivities also included the presentation of the 2018 Innovation of the Year Award by LeadingAge New York President, James Clyne for SeniorU. SeniorU combines the educational excellence of Concordia College with Wartburg’s expertise in senior engagement, allowing retirees the opportunity to earn a two- or four-year college degree.

Mike Bennett, Co-Host of “Mike and Casey in the Morning” on 100.7 WHUD was the Master of Ceremonies at this year’s gala. Major sponsors for Jazz in June 2018 included Montefiore New Rochelle, Biodex, Morrison Community Living, Patient Care Associates, Inc., New York-Presbyterian/Lawrence Hospital, PharmScript LLC, and Westchester Ambulette Services Inc.

“We are so thankful for our generous supporters without whom we could not offer innovative arts-based therapy to all those entrusted to our care,” said Angela Ciminello, Wartburg Vice President of Development and Marketing.

Throughout the evening, attendees enjoyed participating in the gala’s fundraising through raffles and live auctions. Tim Decker, speed painter extraordinaire, provided entertainment by painting three large canvases of famous icons in less than 15 minutes! The funds raised at this year’s gala supports Wartburg’s therapeutic art program, Creative Aging & Lifelong Learning. Creative Aging offers innovative programming that provides residents, Adult Day Services clients and rehabilitation patients with opportunities to remain challenged and engaged in their later years. Wartburg’s Creative Aging program is a natural fit for Wartburg’s mission to nurture mind, body and spirit and to help those entrusted in their care to live life to its fullest.
