INaSEC: What’s in a Name?
While pronouncing the abbreviation INaSEC, think of “within a second” or “no sooner said than done”, and keep in mind the opposite. This explains the small “a” in the name. When we present themes like “INaSEC on the Orthodox view of eternity” we are stressing through the name that the issues cannot be solved in a blink of the eye.
