LSC Brother to start column on Tobias poetry blog
Rev. Paul Abernathy, one of the founders and original members of unofficial Lambda Sigma Chi Fraternity at Ball State University, will be starting a column, "All Things Considered," as part of the World of Words by Elias Tobias.
By: Elias Tobias
The brief blog entries will center on Abernathy’s position as a youth minister for a Tacoma, Wash., church as well as being a father of two children and a husband to Diana, his wife of 13 years. The posts will have an obvious religious theme to them and also have a general view of life with all things considered- thus the name for the column.
The World of Words will not publish any posts on Thursdays in 2010. The number of poems in the catalog of work by Elias Tobias not already posted has been reduced due to the daily entries from past year, and the reduction will ensure enough poems will be posted for the whole year.
Thursday's poems in 2009 were largely those previously published, but those are now a part of the online collection. The multi-national translations will continue along with poetry from the Boys from the Lambda Sigma Chi fraternity. Friday will have the photo posting as in 2009. “Between the Lines,” a monthly news update video, started in December of 2009, will continue on the World of Words Video Channel on YouTube in 2010.
Also in news about LSC, the brothers of the fraternity had a 10-year reunion in Indianapolis in December. Adrian Parker, Bill Kelso, Paul Abernathy, C.J. Chatham III, Rufus McDougal, Christopher Benedict and new member Karl Dobson brought their families for a two-day get together and to meet the pledge who was initiated into fraternity -Brian Kohut.
