Jason Evert, a speaker on chastity and virtue and author of books such as “How to Find Your Soul Mate Without Losing Your Soul,” offered a take on chastity, relationships and love to a packed audience at Jordan Auditorium.The talk, sponsored by the Notre Dame Right to Life and titled “How to Save your Marriage Before Meeting Your Spouse,” focused on redefining the virtue of chastity for young adults who seek to form healthy romantic relationships.“Navigating the dating scene is obviously very tough,” he said. “What I’m proposing is a return to the concept of the virtue of chastity.”Evert said while the contemporary connotation of chastity frames it as a repressive attitude towards sex and sexuality, chastity is actually a virtue that, when practiced, liberates and ordains sexuality to God’s love.“Chastity is a virtue like courage or honesty that applies to your sexuality,” Evert said. “It does not eliminate your sexual desires; rather, what it does is it orders them according to the demands of human love. The purpose and function of it is to free the human person from a utilitarian attitude.”Evert said working with with young adults showed him the desire young people have towards forming loving and healthy relationships but also their inability to learn how to date and engage in romantic relationships in light of Christian teachings on abstinence and virtue.He said one problem in contemporary dating lies in men’s lack of initiative in pursuing relationships with women.“What’s happening is today, we’re not initiating love. We’re either initiating lust, or we’re initiating nothing,” he said. “… It’s one thing to want this kind of love, but it’s not enough to want to find it. We need to know how to give it and how to receive it as well.”Evert said women, meanwhile, feel social pressure against developing authentic relationships. He emphasized five points within his presentation that addressed the problems both men and women face when navigating contemporary dating. These points are enjoying and understanding oneself in single life, looking for love from within, facing fear, creating clear commitment and maintaining purity within relationships.Evert said the distinction between sexual desire and lust was important to understanding through what lens people should view men and women. According to Evert, sexual desire is natural to men and women, whereas lust is an unnatural perversion that impeded the ability to appreciate the person, and rather only appreciate the pleasure that could be derived from the person. He said abstinence allows people to know and love the person as whole, and therefore stop lust.“What we learn through abstinence, is that abstinence is not about waiting to love your girlfriend, it is about loving that woman perfectly, by caring about her body, and her soul, in all eternity,” Evert said.“When you grow in purity, you come to a greater awareness of the beauty of the human body, and that beauty becomes a light to your actions.”Tags: How to Save Your Marriage Without Losing Your Spouse, Jason Evert
The production previously played the Theatre Royal Bath and toured Australia. Further casting will be announced later. Hay Fever follows Judith (Kendal), the once glittering star of the London stage and member of the Bliss family. Together with her husband David, an egocentric novelist, and Sorel and Simon, their two Bohemian adult children, the family are incapable of sharing the spotlight. Unconventional, risqué, and often downright rude, they are everything a respectable English family should not be. When each member of the family invites a guest to their rural retreat, the unassuming visitors are thrown into a living melodrama. Misjudged meetings, secret seductions and scandalous revelations proliferate during one outrageous weekend in Berkshire. Felicity Kendal will star in Noel Coward’s Hay Fever in London’s West End. Directed by Lindsay Posner, the play is set for a limited engagement at the Duke of York’s Theatre April 29 through August 1. Opening night is scheduled for May 11. View Comments Kendal is best known for her TV work in The Good Life. Her recent West End appearances have included Ayckbourn’s Relatively Speaking, Coward’s The Vortex and Bernard Shaw’s Mrs Warren’s Profession.

History and adventure–doesn’t get much better than that, right? We’re lucky that our National Park Service values the preservation of historical sites around the country, and we’ve put together a list of some of the best battlefields and historical sites where you can also get your outdoor adventure on.Kings Mountain National Military ParkBlacksburg, South CarolinaMost of the battles of the Revolutionary War took place in South Carolina, and Kings Mountain National Military Park is known as the location of the “turning point” of the war. In this spot in October 1780, the Patriot militia won the first major victory since the British invasion of Charleston that year. The little park park includes a 1.5-mile battlefield trail and a visitors’ center that holds special events and activities for visitors. It also happens to be less than five miles away from Kings Mountain State Park, which features nearly 40 miles of hiking trails, a lake with boating and fishing access, a playground and picnic shelters. You’ll also find several geocaches in the area if you look hard enough, plus volleyball and basketball courts. Guilford Courthouse National Military Park Greensboro, North CarolinaOfficially preserved for public use since 1912, the Guildford Courthouse National Military Park honors the site of a 1781 Revolutionary War battle that is said to have ultimately led to the British surrender seven months later. Activities in the park include colonial reenactments and special events for holidays. Most of the monuments are accessible by car, but if you want to stretch your legs and get some exercise, a roughly three-mile hike through the battlefield will give you access to most of them. And when you’re done soaking up the history, if you still have a hankering for some physical activity, the trail system in the battlefield connects to other trails in Greensboro, so you can process everything you just learned while taking a nice long walk or run.Harpers Ferry National Historical Park Harpers Ferry, West VirginiaWhere the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers meet, you really get the best of both worlds when it comes to history and adventure. The 4,000-acre park encompases land in West Virginia, Virginia, and Maryland, and includes a quaint, historic downtown area with restaurants, shops, and museums. The battle of Harpers Ferry during the Civil War was fought September 12-15, 1862 as General Robert E. Lee’s Confederate army invaded Maryland. After roaming around the downtown area (particularly the monuments and plaques at the bottom of the hill) taking in all the area’s history, your outdoor recreation options are practically unlimited. Take a bike ride along the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal, check out the Appalachian Trail (which happens to run right through the area), or visit one of the many nearby outfitters for guided activities like whitewater rafting, tubing, paddleboarding, and ziplining.Chickamauga & Chattanooga National Military Park Georgia, TennesseeDedicated in 1895, Chickamauga & Chattahoochee Military Park covers more than 9,000 acres in Georgia and Tennessee. The park includes both the Chickamauga Battlefield and Lookout Mountain Battlefield, both sites of Civil War battles in 1863. The Tennessee River is lined with several monuments and reservations, and other historical sites in the park include Orchard Knob, where General Ulyssess S. Grant directed troops during the Battle of Chattanooga, and Signal Point, where soldiers across the valley signaled to one another using flags to communicate. And if you haven’t checked out the Cumberland Trail yet, you should put that on your list while you’re checking out all the historical sites. The north-south footpath passes through 11 counties in Tennessee and as of the end of 2015, nearly 200 miles were open to the public for hiking. National Battlefield Park Richmond, VirginiaWhen it comes to American history, we dare you to find a better place to soak it all in than Richmond, Virginia. Historical sites in the park include battlefields like Malvern Hill, Cold Harbor, and Gaines’ Mill, plus a Confederacy hospital and the historic Tredegar Iron Works. A driving tour covers all 13 sites along a route of about 80 miles. And just because you’re in a capital city doesn’t mean you won’t have access to outdoor activities. Near the Richmond National Battlefield Park Civil War Visitor Center is access to Belle Isle, a 540-acre island accessible by a footbridge that runs below the Robert E. Lee Bridge. Take a picnic to enjoy on the island’s rocks, and check out the pedestrian-and-bike-friendly trails and small cliffside for some rock climbing.[divider]More From BlueRidgeOutdoors.com[/divider]
It won’t surprise many people that the main reason people switch to a new financial institution is because of a change in life circumstances. Moving house or a change in marital status are amongst the top reasons people cite when asked why they are looking for or have moved to a new institution. Deciding to switch to a new provider for your mortgage, savings account and other financial needs is a big deal for most people so it really does take something significant to trigger a move.Financial institutions don’t have a lot of clout when it comes to the ‘why’ people switch institutions. However, when a consumer does decide to switch providers, FIs can influence where that consumer chooses to go. Having a secondary relationship with an institution is the main deciding factor for most people who are making a move to a new primary provider. FIs also have some degree of control over the other top reasons people mention:Convenient locationsPositive word of mouthWide product rangeThere is no doubt that, relative to all the other financial institutions out there, credit unions are having a stellar year. 2015 is the first time in history that credit union saving account balances broke a trillion dollars. One third of the US population is now a member of a credit union and consumer trust in credit unions remains consistent.There is more exciting news for credit unions: Credit unions are pretty much on par with national banks when it comes to where consumers say they would move their primary banking.5% would move to a national bank6% would move to a credit unionA recent study by the University of Michigan reveals consumer confidence with credit unions has risen steadily over the past 25 years, even as other FIs struggled to maintain the trust of their members during the 2008 Financial Crisis. Credit unions fostering these relationships with their members will ensure their continued ability to thrive.Why Referral Marketing For Credit Unions?We are starting to see more and more credit unions taking advantage of the current consumer sentiment and launching acquisition and referral reward programs. Referral or advocacy marketing is a very effective way for credit unions to acquire new members and reward existing members for their recommendation. If you need some convincing, here are some referral marketing stats that could sway you:63% of consumers surveyed for a 2015 report state that a loyalty or rewards program adds to their relationship with a brand or institutionThe same survey revealed that 34% of consumers claim that they would not be loyal to a brand or institution that does not have an incentive program.12% of consumers select where to do their banking based upon positive word of mouth10% of consumers trust their friends and family and are likely to move to an institute someone they know recommendsIt is a great idea to reward advocates of your credit union and incentive marketing is clearly an effective way to do so. It is also an effective way to attract new members and maintain their loyalty. If you do opt for a referral marketing program for your credit union, your next big decision will be deciding on which reward to offer.Rewarding Your MembersMost consumers have some level of familiarity with rewards and loyalty programs. Many are members of drugstore or grocery store programs and often receive rewards like coupons or money off purchases. Some are members of other types of reward programs that offer physical gifts. These reward types are appealing but not always the best option for credit unions. RewardStream works with a number of credit unions and many offer account credits as a reward. This is a sensible reward offer for credit unions. An account credit can be applied with minimal expense and without the need to involve a third party in order to fulfill the reward credits. And consumers like free money!Reward values vary from credit union to credit union. Some people offer $25 to new members and their referrers; others go as high as $50. When setting your reward value, you should consider what you are rewarding. A reward for activating a new checking account will likely be lower in value than a reward for opening a mortgage as mortgages tend to have a higher lifetime value for the credit union. Credit unions may also want to offer a tiered reward system which allows members to receive multiple rewards over a period of time for signing up for different services. This kind of structure is a great way to keep members loyal to your brand.Account credits are ‘traditional’ rewards and are likely to remain as credit union reward staples. However, as consumers become more digital and mobile, the types of rewards that credit unions can offer will diversify. Mobile wallets are one of the reward types we are starting to see proliferate. A recent survey revealed that 44% of mobile wallet users want their wallet to support loyalty and reward programs. Credit unions launching a referral program may also want to consider integrating with mobile wallet providers.The research demonstrates that consumers are interested in programs that reward advocates. As more and more credit unions launch referral reward programs, the competition between financial institutions to incentivize consumers to join their credit union is going to really heat up over the next few years. To stay relevant in an increasingly competitive space, credit unions need to find ways to set them apart from other institutions. A formal referral marketing program with compelling rewards can grow a credit union’s member base while also ensuring existing member loyalty. 90SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Rob Goehring Rob Goehring is the CEO of RewardStream, a leader in automated referral marketing solutions for credit unions, financial services and telecommunications companies.

Representatives of Puerto Rico’s cooperativas have blasted a House plan to place the financial institutions in the hands of a fiscal control board.And an island attorney and local politician said that the bill — approved by the House Natural Resources Committee last week — could jeopardize the island’s government’s efforts to protect the institutions.H.R. 5278, known as PROMESA, creates a fiscal board to oversee the island government’s finances, which are on the verge of collapse.
