[Thus, It Is Taking More American Churches To Field One Missionary Than Churches In Other Parts Of The World. For Example, Whereas There Is One Crosscultural Missionary Supported By Every 0.7 Evangelical Churches In Singapore, By 2.1 Churches In Hong Kong, 2.4 In Albania, 2.5 In Sri Lanka, 2.6 In Mongolia, 4.2 In South Korea, 4.9 In Myanmar, And 5.3 In Senegal, In The United States The Ratio Is 7.6 Churches To One Missionary.[6] The Proper Conclusion From This Flurry Of Numbers Would Seem To Be That, While The United States Contains A Whole Lot Of Evangelical Churches, Those Churches Are Not Now As Proportionately Active In Crosscultural Missionary Activity As Many Churches In The Non-Western World. Evangelical Dynamism In These Other Churches Has Replaced, Or Is Replacing, The Evangelical Dynamism Of American Churches As The Leading Edge Of World Christian Expansion. That Expansion Seems To Be Tracking The Earlier Pattern Of American Adjustments To Christianity-after-Christendom.]

Quotes About Presentation Design

"All the same, we ought to point out that if the kinds of poetry and representation which are designed merely to give pleasure can come up with a rational argument for their inclusion in a well-governed community, wed be delighted -- short of compromising the truth as we see it, which wouldnt be right -- to bring them back from exile: after all, we know from our own experience all about their spell.

Quotes About Omicidio

"Il suicidio è una forma di omicidio. Omicidio premeditato. Non lo fai la prima volta che ti passa per la testa. Ti ci devi abituare. E ti servono mezzo, occasione e movente. Un suicidio riuscito esige buona organizzazione e sangue freddo, cose solitamente incompatibili con lo stato danimo suicida. Limportante è coltivare il distacco. Un modo per farlo è esercitarsi a immaginarsi morta, o in punto di morte. Quando vedi una finestra, devi immaginarti il tuo corpo che cade dalla finestra. Quando vedi un coltello, devi immaginarti il coltello che ti lacera la pelle. Quando arriva un treno, devi immaginarti col torace schiacciato dalle ruote. Esercizi come questi servono a ottenere la giusta distanza." - Author: Susanna Kaysen

Quotes About Simplicity In Design

"The genius of Laplace was a perfect sledge hammer in bursting purely mathematical obstacles; but, like that useful instrument, it gave neither finish nor beauty to the results. In truth, in truism if the reader please, Laplace was neither Lagrange nor Euler, as every student is made to feel. The second is power and symmetry, the third power and simplicity; the first is power without either symmetry or simplicity. But, nevertheless, Laplace never attempted investigation of a subject without leaving upon it the marks of difficulties conquered: sometimes clumsily, sometimes indirectly, always without minuteness of design or arrangement of detail; but still, his end is obtained and the difficulty is conquered." - Author: Laplace
