Life as a Puritan

- While I'm sitting here at my computer, in my air conditioned home, with the radio blaring and the t.v. on downstairs, I try to imagine how life was as a young Puritan. To be honest, I don't think I could live a week the way they do. I could try but it would be excruciatingly difficult. The Puritans didn't have all the luxuries we have today. They were told many things by preachers such as Jonathon Edwards, who lit a candle of fear in their minds. If I was alive to hear Edwards preach, I'd certainly have to question myself....   [tags: essays research papers]

But she, - the naughty baggage, - little will she care what they put upon the bodice of her gown. Why, look you, she may cover it with a brooch, or such like heathenish adornment, and so walk the streets as brave as ever!” - Chapter 2, paragraph 5 According to the matron, she thinks that being publicly shamed is a bit too merciful....   [tags: Puritans, Sin, Shame]

Community Gardens : A Common And Sought After By Many Residents And City Officials

- Community gardens are becoming more common and sought after by both residents and city officials because they provide a variety of functions within a community that society values. These gardens are often promoted as having economic advantages, providing health benefits, offering educational opportunities, and reducing food deserts.

Tolerance, Liberalism, and Community

- Tolerance, Liberalism, and Community ABSTRACT: The liberal principle of tolerance limits the use of coercion by a commitment to the broadest possible toleration of rival religious and moral conceptions of the worthy way of life. While accepting the communitarian insight that moral thought is necessarily rooted in a social self with conceptions of the good, I argue that this does not undermine liberal tolerance. There is no thickly detailed way of life so embedded in our self-conceptions that liberal neutrality is blocked at the level of reflection....   [tags: Tolerance Liberal Community Essays]
