Running through the Christ Child Society's list of projects is a dizzying task. From tutoring and mentoring students to knitting hats and scarves for low-income children or providing books to two Baltimore schools - this Riderwood-based volunteer organization is involved in an ever-growing range of activities. And the group only got its start a little more than a year ago. Don't let the name fool you, Cathleen White, one of the founding members and a Cedarcroft resident, said.

Even if I didn't know the title of the exhibition -- "Jesus 2000" -- I would have known the minute I entered the small gallery: I was surrounded by images of Christ. One painting depicts Jesus standing against a royal blue sky amid shafts of sunlit clouds. His coat, made of colorful flags from many nations, billows behind him as he beckons with his right arm. In another image, Jesus, bare-chested and wearing blue jeans and baseball cap, is a carpenter. And from still another work, a collage comprising digital images of the Dead Sea Scrolls, a somber Jesus seems to gaze directly into my eyes.

The movie may be stirring controversy elsewhere, but members of an evangelical congregation from Timonium who saw it yesterday called Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ a moving experience -- one that provides a rare opportunity to introduce millions to the teachings and message of Jesus. In a sober, hourlong discussion after a screening at the Senator Theatre, about a dozen staffers from Grace Fellowship Church said the film had lifted their spirits and given them a new appreciation for the sacrifice of their lord and savior.

The Word is not quite made flesh in Edward Knippers' powerful religious paintings. But the biblical figures in them are very fleshy, very big and very nude.In Knippers' painted Scriptural narratives, the protagonists are muscular, writhing, struggling nude figures, many emphatically male, some Rubensesquely female. They wrestle with each other, with evil, with demons, doubters, angels and, perhaps, the Lord.Even in the spacious Mill River Gallery, on Oella Avenue in Ellicott City, the paintings seem to demand more room.

At dawn, the heavy front doors are unlocked. Soon the familiar rhythm comes to life in the administration building at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Voices on the security guard's radio echo in the quiet corridors. A woman's heels clack against the marble floor. Students cut through on their way to classes. Physicians hurry to surgery. It is here, at the intersection of six major hallways, underneath Hopkins' historic dome, that even the busiest people take a moment to pause in the presence of a towering statue of Christ.

The Christ Child Society of Baltimore was formed just a few months ago, but this organization, a chapter of the National Christ Child Society, has hit the ground running. Already, the group has donated books and volunteer hours at many organizations, and established a partnership with Armistead Gardens Elementary and Middle School. On March 21, Maryland first lady Katie O'Malley will visit the Baltimore public school for a program on bullying arranged by the organization. The school already has programs to combat bullying, said Cathleen White, who revived the Baltimore branch of the Christ Child Society and planned O'Malley's visit.

The challenge to keep Christ in Christmas began several years ago. Since then we have seen efforts across our nation to remove Christ from the public arena. The local pastors of the Susquehanna Ministerium made the appeal to remember the reason for the season yet again this year, and a number of Havre de Grace residents, businesses and churches have been very gracious in honoring this challenge by displaying a nativity scene during the Christmas holidays. Even more families have joined the effort.

OMG! Jesus had a wife? A highly regarded Harvard theological historian has introduced a tiny scrap of papyrus from the fourth century - judged to be authentic - on which are written the words, "Jesus said to them, 'My wife….'" Also written there is: "she will be able to be my disciple. " Karen L. King presented her findings in Rome last week, and some of the underpinnings of the Roman Catholic Church are swaying a bit: that Jesus was celibate as a demonstration of his commitment to God and had no female disciples.

The Rev. Edward Meeks and his flock attended to a "million and one details" last week in the run-up to a momentous day for their church. People to talk to. Flowers to arrange. Food to cook. And, of course, the new sign. On Sunday, Christ the King Church - Anglican - became Christ the King Catholic Church. The Towson congregation of about 140 is one of the first groups in the United States to join a new "ordinariate" established for those who want to be Catholic but hold on to Anglican traditions.

It's shocking that the letter writer supporting same-sex marriage ("Catholics should know better than to oppose gay marriage," April 18) is Catholic. Was he asleep when his religion teacher said that the purpose of marriage is the procreation of children and that Christ made marriage a sacrament at the Wedding Feast of Cana? This is why the church opposes same-sex marriage. It has nothing to do with denying anyone their civil rights. It has everything to do with saving an institution which dates back to the beginning of the human race.

Rick Adist shares the pain felt by Baltimoreans still without power days after Hurricane Irene left the area. Tonight, he's throwing a party to help alleviate it, maybe just a little. Adist, minister at the University Parkway Church of Christ , will be hosting a "Tired of the Dark" party at the Baltimore church Wednesday evening. There will be hot dogs and hamburgers, salads and drinks, topped off with cake. And because the church itself has power, the evening will include a free movie screening in the auditorium, probably of the 2010 animated film "Megamind," which features the voices of Will Ferrell, Tina Fey and Brad Pitt.
