Thank you so much for your article on Catonsville United Methodist Church's beautification project ("Replacing old trees part of plan for future," Catonsville Times, March 19). You did a wonderful job explaining our mission in both replacing the trees and for the new Prayer Garden. As we discussed, I think the Catonsville Times' readership is a knowledgeable group that looks for you to give them insight into important issues in our community. Your reporting inputs from Councilman Tom Quirk and Jim Himel of the Catonsville Tree Canopy Project hopefully gave readers an even better understanding of how this project will benefit the Greater Catonsville community.  Ken Erickson,  facilities manager Catonsville United Methodist Church

Joshua LaVeck was a painfully shy kid who cowered when he found himself in big groups. So it was no surprise that after his first day of Cub Scouts he vowed to quit. His parents pushed him to give it another try and secretly hoped that he would stick with it, gain confidence and become a role model for his two younger brothers. Maybe, just maybe, they'd all become Scouts and actually enjoy it. Within 15 years, not only would Joshua achieve the Boy Scouts' highest honor by becoming an Eagle Scout, but his brothers would follow suit, a rarity in the world of scouting where just 5 percent achieve the accolade shared by heads of state, business executives and other notables.

A Mardi Gras-style dance party on church grounds may seem like an ethical contradiction, but that's how Rockland United Methodist Church in Ellicott City promoted the grand opening celebration of its amphitheater last month. The Rockland theater is one of a growing number of showcases for popular music, theatrical productions and visual arts being run by churches or by outside organizations renting church space in the Baltimore region. "It's kind of a new trend," said Joanne Juskus, a Columbia folk singer who runs a 9-month-old eclectic music series called "The Bottom Floor" at St. John's United Methodist Church of Hamilton in Baltimore.

HANCOCK'S RESOLUTION, Pasadena's unpolished link to post-Revolutionary America, will present an 19th-century craft day from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 8. Peggy Hanna, a longtime volunteer docent at the park, says the idea for the exhibition surfaced last year at a Friends of Hancock's Resolution volunteer meeting. Through her involvement at Magothy United Methodist Church - where Hancock family members have been members since the church's founding in 1777 - she was familiar with many crafts hobbyists who have carried on traditional arts that would have been part of daily life at the farm more than two centuries ago. "The crafts being demonstrated would not have been something the Hancock family would have done to have fun, but items or skills needed for daily living," Hanna said.
