Quote of the Week - This Too Shall Pass

Quote of the Week - This Too Shall Pass

In a year when so many have been taken prematurely, it is worth remembering that more that 130 million new souls came into the world this year.  They are an affirmation of our collective hope for the future, even in times of hardship.  

Of course, for Christians, this is the time of year that celebrates the birth of hope and the good news.  There are many Christmas carols which express this hope but one of my favorites has always been the classic, When A Child is Born.  It was first popularized by the great Johnny Mathis but I find this performance of it by Sinead O’Conner and Danny O’Reilly to be particularly moving.  For my non-Christian friends, I think you will find the lyrics quite interfaith.  For the hope in the future and the celebration of new life is a basic tenant of all of the great faiths.

According to tradition, an ancient Persian king asked his advisors for the most important thought he could share with his subjects.  Their answer was “this too shall pass.”

Merry Christmas to my Christian friends and happy holidays to those that follow another path.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
