Things You Don’t See Every Day . . . Unless You’re in New York (Part 3)

posted by Mark D. Roberts

Finally, three more photos of New York City. I’ve never seen anything like these before, anywhere.
First, an M&M rainbow from the M&M store on Broaday. You don’t get those colors in your normal bag of M&Ms.

I saw the following sign in a classroom at NYU, during a college tour. The Threshold of Hearing is the lowest level at which human beings can hear sounds distinctly. It’s represented by the lowest line in the graph. Normal speaking volume is represented by the blue “peanut.” Personally, I think this sign represents wishful thinking at best, because New Yorkers tend to speak loudly.

Finally, I spied this sign in La Guardia airport as we were preparing to fly home. Man, ya gotta watch out for those killer snow globes!! This policy must be good news for the snow globe vendors who are within the secure parts of the airport.

Of course I could go on and on showing photos of New York’s uniqueness, because there isn’t in place else in the world quite like this city. But I’ll end this mini-series today.

    There is a similar display of M&M’s in Las Vegas at the M& M store–in fact the whole store is amazing.

Sunday Inspiration from the High Calling
Can We Find God in the City? Psalm 48:1-14 Go, inspect the city of Jerusalem. Walk around and count the many towers. Take note of the fortified walls, and tour all the citadels, that you may describe them to future generations. For that is what God is like. He is our God forever and ever,

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 3
An Act and Symbol of Love Perhaps one of the most startling of the early Christian interpretations of the cross was that it was all about love. It’s easy in our day, when crosses are religious symbols, attractive ornaments, and trendy jewelry to associate the cross with love. But, in the first

Why Did Jesus Have to Die? The Perspective of the First Christians, Part 2
The Means of Reconciliation In my last post, I examined one of the very earliest Christian statements of the purpose of Jesus’ death. According to the tradition encapsulated in 1 Corinthians 15, Jesus died “for our sins in accordance with the scriptures” (15:3). Yet this text doesn’t expl
