Once you have decided upon a topic I would strongly recommend you begin gathering materials for the assignment at some earlier point in the semester rather than waiting until week 14 to begin. The paper should relate to themes in the course but could literally be about anything you find interesting, regarding the historical practice of faith, theological or philosophical issue of belief (or disbelief), sociologically influenced religious practice, or even a contemporary movement. It could be about an individual, a group, […]

As you explain, include your clinical specialty. 2-) Reflect on the analysis of the sin of suicide and thus, euthanasia from the topic readings. Do you agree? Why or why not? Refer to the lecture and topic readings in your response.
please read instructions** My faith and beliefs in GOD are sacred Give examples of what is sacred in your life. Give examples of sacred not mentioned in the book. Why are those people/places/things sacred? Remember, just because something is “special” to you, or important to you, does not mean that it’s sacred. There is a unique definition for sacred. To be sacred, a person/place/thing has to meet a specific criteria. Is there actual power in the sacred places/objects, or is it just a matter of faith/superstition/ psychology? Don’t just rehash what we talked about last week. And use the readings […]
