Topics
Guideposts Confidence: 75% Arrow up

Guideposts is a faith-based non-profit organization founded in 1945 by Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Raymond Thornburg, and Peale's wife, Ruth Stafford Peale.

The 1945 inaugural issue of Guideposts magazine, which was printed and distributed to 10,000 Americans, was a four-page leaflet meant to encourage and uplift individuals, particularly soldiers returning home from the war.

The inaugural issue also contained a story by World War I Ace, Eddie Rickenbacker.

Prayer Confidence: 71% Arrow up

Prayer (from the Latin precari "to ask earnestly, beg, entreat") is an invocation or act that seeks to activate a rapport with an object of worship through deliberate communication.

Creation myth Confidence: 69% Arrow up

A creation myth (also called a cosmogonic myth) is a symbolic narrative of how the world began and how people first came to inhabit it.

While in popular usage the term myth often refers to false or fanciful stories, formally, it does not imply falsehood.

Cultures generally regard their creation myths as true.

In the society in which it is told, a creation myth is usually regarded as conveying profound truths, metaphorically, symbolically and sometimes in a historical or literal sense.

They are commonly, although not always, considered cosmogonical myths – that is, they describe the ordering of the cosmos from a state of chaos or amorphousness.
