Thus, our Lord came down, becoming a Man for our sakes, in order, as St.Gregory says, to heal like with like; the soul by the soul and the flesh by the flesh. He became a perfect man without sin. He has assumed our essence, the first fruit of our nature and He became a new Adam according to the image of Him Who created him; (Col. 3:10). He renews human nature and makes our senses perfect again, as they were at the beginning. He renewed fallen man by becoming Man. He liberated him from the dominion of sin, which had compelled him by force

freedom week

Surveys revealing the historical ignorance of "average" U.S. citizens are well known. According to one, "Only one in two Americans know how many senators there are; Two in five don't know the federal government has three branches, let alone what they are (Executive, Legislative, Judicial)...Twenty percent cannot name any of the First Amendment rights and only 6 percent can name all five (freedom of speech, press, assembly, religion and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances)...Also, 16 percent incorrectly think the Constitution declares Christianity the official U.S. religion....Thirty-five percent incorrectly think the document declares English the premier language." 1 Misconceptions abound about the history of our nation, and our politicians have responded.In late Spring 2001, the Texas legislature and governor voted and signed House Bill 1776, designating the last full week of classes in September as "Celebrate Freedom Week" in public schools. This act takes effect on September 1, 2001, and affects grades K-12. The goal of this legislation is "To educate students about the sacrifices made for freedom in the founding of this country and the values on which this country was founded." This article describes five different technology infused activities that can be used to meet the requirements of this new educational law, and utilize a wealth of internet content in dynamic and motivational lessons for students
