1700 years after the first one, the Church both East and West may hold a Council in Nicea.
Even though the Church had its first major split several hundred years later (the split which created the Roman Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox Church), the Council of Nicea in 325 was a true milestone in Church history. It pretty much consolidated the Christian faith for all time. The fact that both major branches of the Church are even considering going back is huge!
The Creed that came out of that historic Council ... The Nicene Creed ... is still the best explanation of Christian belief in existence. Both East and West (yes, including a lot of Protestants) use it in worship and teaching. I applaud Pope Francis and Patriarch Bartholomew for agreeing to this. I fervently hope it comes to fruition.

A Funny Moment In Tonight's Olympic Closing Ceremony
Who says the Russians don't have a sense of humor about themselves?
In a satire of the opening ceremonies, hundreds of dancers form a giant representation of the Olympic Rings, and one of the rings doesn't form correctly!
This was reported by the BBC.

Let's face it, the kid had talent and class ... throughout her life. She was cute, sure, but her performances were delightful. Her services to her country in later life are a benchmark for other diplomats. She will be missed.
RIP, Shirley Temple
