    The Body Conference was held in Zagarolo, Rome, in June 2013 (23-24) at FIND's residence. www.find.org.in. The Body is the essential feature of all human beings and yet different cultures relate to, and represent, the body in highly diverse ways. Humans are usually prepared to reveal the flesh of only parts of the body in public, and yet Asian and European attitudes towards the body are highly differentiated. As we become closer and closer neighbours through increasing global interconnectedness, we are learning the hallmarks of those differences very rapidly; in much of the media, they are deeply caricatured. But it is nonetheless the case that where exposure of the midriff, say, or the hair on the head, or the top of the arm, is normal in some cultures, it can be shocking or disrespectful for others, and so on. This conference aimed to unravel the historical and cultural settings in which we understand the body, its beauty, its meaning and its well being. It also aimed to puncture the easy caricatures of the depiction of the body that bedevil so much of the casual Western view of India. In her book “Karma Cola”, Gita Mehta refers to the relief she once felt on seeing serious discussion of silicon chips in India that “the Oriental may be released from the burden of being either obscure or oracular” – which is often how Westerners would prefer to see it.

      6 short video-poems that explore primordial questions of being, such as: what is identity? how do we talk about love? what is the relationship between the intelligible and the ineffable? To make these abstract ideas more tangible we use everyday objects, common materials, and our bodies. Original text accompanies the videos.

            After graduating from university, Scott imagined his life would consist of business meetings, hot secretaries, designer suits, and after work cocktails. Now finding himself jobless, moneyless and girl-less, Scott turns to a life as an author and speaker, on a topic none other than the art of seduction. With his book half finished, and his publicity on the rise, the only thing stopping Scott from becoming the worlds best seduction artist and New York Times best selling novelist, is his own self loathing. "The Body" is a fun, witty and introspective comedy drama series that dives into the desperate life of the 25 year old male living in the big city. The Body is written, directed and produced by Andrew King.

                  Angels are part of the unseen realm and it should be normal for the church to interact with them especially when we are building with what is unseen.
