  • Tyrian Purple

    Art and Faith by Lynn Miller
    It may be that Lydia has a predatory sea snail to thank for her profit. Imperial purple, also called Tyrian purple, begins its life as a secretion from a predatory sea snail. Specifically it comes from bolinus brandaris, which Linnaeus originally called Murex brandaris. The murex snails, found in the Mediterranean world, can be "milked" for the secretion or, more easily for human harvesters, the snails can be dried and crushed to obtain the dye.

  • The Woman in Purple (or Acts as a Movie)

    by Larry Patten
    Acts shared so much and so little. Is it enough to read it was “the Lord” enabling her that led to the encounter with Paul? I suppose. And yet . . . What of the blessed and messy encounters, without scripts, without warning, that changes everything for us? What if my future wife hadn’t been in worship on that life-changing Sunday? What if the pastor who mentored me had turned a cold shoulder to my questions about God? What if I hadn’t overheard a seminary professor say encouraging words about my preaching?

    ("Dionysus is the Greek pagan god of ancient Greece of wine and beer. Latest research has shown that there are many parallels between the lives of Dionysus and Jesus Christ of Christianity.
