  • Cynthiana Baptist Church fills two-year senior pastor vacancy

    When a pastor gives service to the same church for 38 years, they leave a legacy, and usually really big shoes to fill.

  • What face do you show?

    The other day I read an article written by Sharon Miller, a woman who stopped wearing makeup “as an act of Christian discipleship.”
    She was getting ready to go shopping with her in-laws and as she went through her usual morning routine of blow-drying her hair and picking out an outfit, she decided to go to the mall sans makeup.
    She said she had been inspired by a book, “Dance of the Spirit: The Seven Stages of Women’s Spirituality,” by Maria Harris.

  • Churches need ‘Family Day’-like togetherness

    Every Sunday afternoon in Placentia, Calif., the Watson family gathers for Family Day.
    Although informal — most every Watson comes either barefoot or wearing flip flops — it has its own set of rules and rituals.
    According to Jennifer (Watson) Fiamengo, the rules mainly pertain to the food served. If they grill hamburgers or hot dogs, her mother MUST make her family-famous macaroni salad. If they have Mexican food, her mother MUST make seven-layer dip.

  • Feeling your pain in my heart

    Being known as a religion writer, sometimes people write or call me to tell about their experiences with God.
    Sometimes they tell me of their theological ideas, which may or may not coincide with mine. Sometimes they tell of their own deep pain, past sin or present struggles.
    Around Christmas I found an envelope on my chair, marked “personal and private.” Hand-delivered and from a woman in the community, it contained a handwritten letter several pages long, written from the woman’s “prayer closet” during the early morning hours.
