Sad news today -- Jeffrey Zaslow, who wrote such popular non-fiction as "The Last Lecture" and "The Girls from Ames," died today in a car crash in Michigan. The Wall Street Journal, where he has worked as a reporter, said that he died after losing control of his car while driving on a snowy road and colliding with a truck. He was 53, the Journal said. Zaslow's biggest hit was as co-author of "The Last Lecture," an inspirational tale of Randy Pausch, the Carnegie Mellon University computer science professor who soldiered on while facing pancreatic cancer that would kill him. "The Girls from Ames," detailed a decades-long friendship among a group of women, and was a favorite of books clubs nationwide.

It was a typical Sunday worship service with a twist. The congregation at Ames United Methodist Church in Bel Air, the same lively and prayerful group that planned the hugely successful Yolanda Adams concert a couple weeks ago, was offerering hearty praise songs and worshipping together Sept. 2, in the church's Baltimore Pike sanctuary. Pastor Jay Blake, their annointed and ebullient leader, had just finished delivering a thought-provoking sermon. Challenging them that faith without works is dead, he implored the assembly to gather after the worship service for a brief road trip.

People packed the pews and filled the balconies of Baltimore's historic Bethel A.M.E. church Sunday morning to honor a man they credit with reviving the house of worship — one of the city's most influential — and bringing unabashed passion back to the black church. The daylong ceremony recognized the Rev. John Richard Bryant's 50 years of service, which began in the steepled church at the corner of Druid Hill Avenue and Lanvale Street and took him to Africa and Massachusetts, then back to his hometown and, most recently, to the Midwest, where today he presides over the 4th Episcopal District as a senior bishop.

It all started with a little bit of good-natured trash talk between the pastors of two of Baltimore's most prominent African-American churches. The Rev. Jamal Bryant of Empowerment Temple "fell off the wagon" and confesses he wasn't exercising as much as he should. His trainer used that to pump up another client, the Rev. Frank M. Reid III of Bethel AME Church, telling him he was in better shape than the much younger Bryant. Reid, feeling a little confident, and Bryant, his ego bruised just a bit, then threw out a fitness challenge to one another: Your church against mine.
