    Trivia

    5 Things You Didn't Know About The Red Baron Manfred von Richthofen, a.k.a. the Red Baron, was killed in action on this day in 1918. The flying ace had racked up an impressive 80 in-air victories and had become one of the most feared sights in the sky during World War I. Here are five things you didn't know about the Red Baron... His Nickname Came From a Plane He Didn't Use for Long While he'd used red planes for a while, the plane that von Richthofen was best known for was also one that he didn't use for too long. This was a Fokker triplane, painted a bright red, that he started using in 1917. He used it for less than a year, but it's the style of plane that he's most associated with in popular culture, and it may have been the plane that finally got him his "Red Baron" nickname. He Was Only 25 Years Old When He Died "Baron" evokes an image of an older, distinguished man, possibly with a mustache; if all you know of the Red Baron is the picture on the pizza box, it's understandable that you'd have that image in your mind. But von Richthofen was only 25 years old when he was shot down. He was an incredibly fast learner who had only joined the Imperial Air Service three years prior, and as careful as he was to protect his squadron, he soon developed a well-deserved reputation for accuracy and aggressiveness. No One Really Knows Who Finally Shot Him Down The Red Baron's death is one of those where we know some details for sure, but just enough are hazy to create an air of mystery. It is known that he was shot down on April 21, 1918, and that he was chasing a Sopwith Camel. At this point, the facts start to become jumbled. One Canadian and two Australians have been given co-credit for shooting him down, and there may have been gunfire from both another plane and the ground. There are also reports that a lot of people were firing on him — this would be completely understandable given how important it was to British, Canadian, and Australian fighters to prevent the Red Baron from killing anyone else. Whatever the means, the end was that he crashed into a field, dying quickly afterward. He Crashed on His First Solo Flight In 1915, von Richthofen requested a transfer from the army to the air service because he wanted to see more action. He was determined to do more than just work along a supply line. While he had already been awarded a medal for bravery, that wasn't enough for him; long story short, he wanted glory and to make a name for himself. His commanding officer allowed the transfer, landing von Richthofen in the observer's seat of a plane. He soon started training to fly on his own, which didn't look promising at first; he crashed his very first solo flight. But he practiced so much and became so much better that he was soon recruited for a flying squadron led by Oswald Boelcke, then considered the best pilot in Germany's forces. He May Be More Famous in the United States Now Than in Germany When the Red Baron died, he was so famous that even the British gave him an honorable send-off. However, now, he may be more popular and better known in the United States than in Germany. Name recognition appears to be fading in his home country, but in the U.S., Snoopy's antics fighting the Red Baron while flying a Sopwith Camel, the Red Baron pizza brand, and even the link with the name of British comedy troupe Monty Python's Flying Circus ("Flying Circus" was the nickname of von Richthofen's squadron and a common name for barnstorming troupes) keep his image alive.

    This Commandment Have I Received

    Remember, not all who wander are lost. As we celebrate this Easter Sunday, I am reminded of the above text I saw written on a scrap of paper by an elderly fellow I once looked after who was dying: "that I may know him and the power of his resurrection, and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death," (Phil 3:10) Wishing you peace in your heart, which is one of the main "resurrection" points of this verse. The cross explains what Jesus thinks of all the people we love to condemn because of their orientation, or their disorientations and that we so fondly use to make out like our sins are "better" because we "are the Church." The Voice of the cross echoes through the ages, repeating the Savior's words to all of those people, and to you today: "The Master calleth for thee..." (John 11:28)

    Days of Praise

    April 21, 2019 Alive with Christ “Now if we be dead with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with him: Knowing that Christ being raised from the dead dieth no more; death hath no more dominion over him.” (Romans 6:8-9) The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead both guarantees the future bodily resurrection of the believer and associates us positionally with Him now. Since He died for our sins, we, in effect, were “dead with Christ.” Therefore, when He defeated death and hell, and revived His own dead body in immortal power, He broke any dominion of death over Him or over those who were, positionally, with Him. This is one of the grandest scriptural themes of the Christian life. We were dead with Christ, but now God “hath quickened us together with Christ” (Ephesians 2:5). Not only have we been “made alive” (1 Corinthians 15:22) with Him, but we have also been “raised” with Him up from the grave and then into heaven where we are “seated” with Him on His throne! “[God] hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:6). This means also that we have been glorified with Him and are actually reigning with Him. “The Spirit [Himself] beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: . . . that we may be also glorified together” (Romans 8:16-17). But if all this is only true in position, what meaning does His resurrection life have on our daily lives now? Simply this—that knowing these truths gives us the incentive and power to live them. “If (or, literally, ‘since’) ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth. For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God” (Colossians 3:1-3). “For we also are weak in him, but we shall live with him by the power of God toward you” (2 Corinthians 13:4). HMM

    Trivia Quiz?

    Answer: Connecticut was officially nicknamed "The Constitution State" by the Connecticut General Assembly in 1959. It is believed that ideas for writing of the Constitution of the United States were drawn from the first constitution of Connecticut. Connecticut is also unofficially known as "The Nutmeg State," whose origin is unknown. It may have come from its sailors returning from voyages with nutmeg. It is also said to come from peddlers from Connecticut who would sell small carved nobs of wood shaped to look like nutmeg to unsuspecting customers. A resident of Connecticut is known as a Connecticuter or a Nutmegger.
