A Literary Meme

picked up from Temperance Girl

The rules:
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.


"Deacon: For this holy temple, and for them that with faith, reverence, and the fear of God enter herein, let us pray to the Lord.
Choir: Lord, have mercy.
Deacon: That we may be delivered from all tribulation, wrath, and necessity, let us pray to the Lord."

This is from page 123 of the Jordanville prayer book, and is an excerpt from the Ectenia of Fervent Supplication, Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom.

And yes, that really was the closest book I spotted.

If you are reading this, consider yourself tagged.

Yay Ortho-dork! My book was much less pious, but just as interesting, I think!

"Sometimes, images from a camera may appear too dark or their color did not come out right due to inadequate lighting conditions when taking them. Images may also appear crooked, especially when the camera was not held in the upright position. You can fix such basic problems by slecting a file and using the Adjust Image command on the Photo menu."

It's Kevin's book but it was the nearest one. =)

That this is a theological construct is clear from the incompleteness of the conquest (Jgs 1) and the fact that in reality the land is not entirely in Israel's control until the time of David. (One sentence only--from the Catholic Study Bible--also the closest book at hand.) bjm

"The apothecary system of measure is a very old English system. It has slowly been replaced by the metric system. When writing orders in the apothecary system, physicians occasionally use Roman numerals."

For example, the nuns of the convent of Abu Saifein have made an enormous mosaic of their saint which hangs in the entrance hall of the convent.

In 1990, the Convents of St Dimyanah and Abu Saifen intended to open a small clinic where nuns who were medical doctors could treat their colleagues and patients living in the convent.

Since the location of the convents (in the middle of crowded Cairo) do not allow much room for gardens, the activities of gardening and farming mainly take place on the convents’ farms outside of Cairo.

Inference: Act or process of drawing conclusions from premises or evidence. --Most important in inductive reasoning.

Discover relations between relations: Detect or expose connections between connections of things. (WTHey?)

From Exhibit 4.2 of Learning to Think: Disciplinary Perspectives. (It's a table which is why the sentences are so weird, but still, that seventh sentence is total edu-spik without sentences 8-9: What does each parameter tell you about this forest? How do the three parameters differ from each other in their biological impact?)
