  • So which type of tree reflects your holiday-style?  Do you get a fresh-cut, artificial or balled-and-burlapped?  Or do you just go out-of-town and let someone else do the decorating?  
    All are certainly acceptable but there are different rules that apply to each. Obviously, the artificial ilk has few restrictions but there are some things to remember if you get a fresh-cut or balled-and-burlapped tree for planting after the holidays.

    ST. EDWARD CHURCH

  • In 1860 a steamboat with nearly 400 passengers broke apart off the Illinois coast. Northwestern student Edward Spencer swam out 17 times to rescue victims. Finishing his final swim, his body gave out, his mind delirious, all he could ask, “Did I do my best?”
    His superhuman efforts saved 17 lives. Spencer, for his heroics, became an invalid for remainder of his life.
    Years later, a reporter asked him about his most vivid memory of the event. Spencer offered, “I remember that not one of the 17 returned to thank me.”

  • Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy has been writing an annual psalm of thanksgiving since 1999 when she first started writing her column.
    Dear God,
    Here I am again, my 18th year composing my annual psalm of Thanksgiving, my public declaration of gratitude to you.
    The biblical writers say we should give thanks in all things, in good times and in bad. Even in bad times, you are still good. You are gentle and kind. You do not break a reed that’s been bruised, neither do you crush a spirit that is wounded.
