  • Newspapers fight back

    OK, newspaper folks. It’s time to pick ourselves off the ground and fight back. There is plenty of time left on the clock, and our fans — more than 100 million loyal readers — are pulling for us to win. So here’s how we rally.

  • The important thing is that God’s people worship

    Before the worship service started we had eaten dinner together, me with my tape recorder and notebook by my side.

    I don’t normally go to church on Wednesday nights, but I had come to New Beginnings Fellowship in Hernando, Fla., for a Religion page feature story and to take notes about their worship.

    As the people entered the sanctuary, some grabbed musical instruments from a cardboard box in the back of the room — maracas and wooden sticks, cymbals and tambourines. During the first song, people used the instruments, making their own music.
