  • Confessions of a neurotic media consumer

    I’ve been about three months without television and it’s made my life quieter. Couple that with the fact that I hardly ever get on Facebook anymore and I’m a veritable hermit.

    Sorry, friends, but I got tired of social media years ago. I keep a presence out there, and I check to see what’s up with friends from time to time, but I don’t really contribute to the social media conversation out there anymore.

  • What, exactly, is a 'cascaron'?

    How often does it happen that a holy day clashes with a hellish day? It happened only three days ago, when a calendaric (is there even such a word?) date occurs to combine Easter Sunday with April Fool’s Day.

    That’s an opportunity for churchgoers to take part in both events.
    Easter Sunday is one of those holy days that flit all around the calendar; sometimes it falls in March, sometimes in April. My birthday is constant, on April 21, but Easter is not. However, I can recall several times when my birthday fell exactly on Easter.

  • Easter and a man who lived long ago

    By Rick Kraft

    I think from time to time, “What if everybody in our community went to church on the same Sunday?” What would that be like? Every seat in every church could be filled and there could be people who would have to stand outside the sanctuaries or be turned away.

    It's Easter weekend. There will be more people in church today than any other Sunday the entire year. Nationally, church attendance will climb an average of 25% on this one day.

  • It’s about Wonder Woman — and me

    At some point during last Saturday’s March for Our Lives in Columbus, Ohio, I walked behind two young girls wearing star-spangled blue capes.
    The one with the ponytail kept looking around at the crowd of thousands, as if she couldn’t believe her eyes. The other girl marched face-forward, holding up a handmade sign: “I cannot stand by while innocent lives are lost. ­They had most likely seen Gal Gadot utter those very words as Wonder Woman in the 2017 film, and now they saw themselves in her. What a lift on such a somber day!

  • One sunset, one sunrise

    Saturday, March 24, we witnessed the birth of something spiritual among young students. 

    The following day, a person who symbolized a different type of student struggle passed away.

    The March for Our Lives symbolizes a generation of young leaders taking their future into their own hands, in Las Vegas, New Mexico, and more than 800 other U.S. cities.
