  • It appears university mathematicians have statistically concluded ‘organized’ religion will soon disappear in nine developed countries; people will no longer affiliate themselves with religion.
    One conclusion suggests, “Americans without [religious] affiliation comprise the only religious group growing in all 50 states.”

  • How would you describe your church experience? Is it a safe place, or is it something else?
    Kate Young Caley grew up loving a little church in Moultonboro, N.H. But when she was only 5, her father became ill and her mother took a job as a waitress where she was required to serve wine and beer, which violated the church’s covenant. Instead of helping them, their congregation voted to kick the family out of the church. As a result, they were shunned in the community.

  • In our busy, over-loaded and booked lives it is hard for us as individuals to develop real close relationships, so we friend-up people on Facebook (some of whom we do not know), or follow someone on Twitter to gain friends.
    We live on our cell phones and often think these ways will fill the void in our lives.
    We want people to like us for who we are and to not get so close as to find out our weaknesses or failings or even those skeletons in our closets. We want these relationships on our terms with no other strings attached or we will drop them like a hot potato.

  • (Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is off this week, hopefully NOT working. This is one of her favorite columns from 2009.)

    Today I scrubbed my kitchen floor, on my knees with a bucket of sudsy water and a brush, “Cinderella-style.”
    After that I polished all the stainless steel and rubbed the countertops with stuff that made them gleam. Then I vacuumed all the wayward popcorn from underneath the couch cushions and cleaned both bathrooms.
