    CITY ON A HILL

  • Let me tell you something I enjoyed about the NCAA Basketball tournament besides the games, the commercials. I especially enjoyed the Capital One commercial featuring Samuel L. Jackson, Spike Lee and Charles Barkley.
    In a 30-second commercial those three are sitting in a car together headed to the tournament site, San Antonio. Charles says he is excited to be able to visit the “A La Mode”. Jackson corrects him by saying, “Charles, it is Alamo.”

  • Easter has passed, but I’m still thinking about a part of the gospel story of Christ’s resurrection that I often miss.
    It happened on that Sunday.
    Early in the morning the women had gone to the tomb where they had placed Christ’s body on Friday after his crucifixion.
    The women found the tomb empty and an angel told them Jesus wasn’t there, that he had risen, just as he had said.
    That part of the story I’ve never forgotten.
    But in Luke’s gospel, there’s a detour that I don’t often remember.

  • So maybe the ghostly tales being told at the First Christian Church on Friday, May 11 at 6:30 p.m. is not what you really want to hear. Then head to Carlisle’s First Baptist Church on Locust Street from 7-8 p.m. for some not so scary tales from Sheila Arnold Jones.
