Rain Price started his sophomore year of high school embarrassed by his Dad, but ended the year famous due to his Dad’s awesome antics.

Check out to see all the fantastic costumes that made the Price family famous.

1. Bernard Starr: The Deception of Compassion
“Transcendence and realization within this framework become the quest for an omnipotent me/self/ego — a goal that cannot be achieved. Then somewhere along this faulty journey you might — if you’re lucky — get the inkling that there’s something greater and more genuine than ego. With that insight the spiritual journey back to the realized self can begin.”

2. Jeanni Brosius: Hope for Healing – WCMC to Build Cancer Center of Excellence
“Studies show that spirituality may play a factor in healing, and a new cancer center in Searcy will include a “hope” garden for patients. White County Medical Center is partnering with the Central Arkansas Radiation Therapy Institute and White County Oncology and Radiology Associates in a $6.8 million construction project that will encompass chemotherapy and radiation therapy treatment suites… as well as a healing garden, called the Rideout Family Garden of Hope.”

3. Kristin M. Swenson, Ph.D.: What You Should Know Before Reading The Bible
“This essay might, alternatively, be called “On Not Reading the Bible.” But then I must hastily add: I’m not against reading the Bible. Not exactly, anyway. Thing is, the Bible doesn’t lend itself to reading straight through for understanding in the ways that modern books do. It is a wildly unusual book, and there is a big difference between simply reading it and knowing about it.”
