Traditional rituals of Passover — the stories, the questions, the food — get a modern spin when Rabbi Geoff Basik presides over Kol HaLev's community seder. The second night observance, held this year on April 15, has become a tradition for the Reconstructionist synagogue congregation. Kol HaLev annually invites members of Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church on North Charles Street, where Jewish community is located, to join the celebration. It is one of the ways Kol HaLev seeks to reach out into the broader community.

When federal Housing and Urban Development Secretary Andrew M. Cuomo announced in September that Baltimore would receive another multimillion grant to rebuild an east-side housing project, he did not expect to start a fight. HUD would send $21.3 million to demolish Broadway Homes, 429 low-income units at Broadway and Orleans Street, across the street from Johns Hopkins Hospital. By next year, a Hope VI development would go up there, with about 120 townhouses, about 20 percent of them for sale.

After 15 years of waiting, Hope Baptist Church in North Laurel now has a place to call its own home. More than 400 volunteers helped construct Hope Baptist's 12,700-square-foot building on Stephens Road last summer, saving the church more than $1 million. Hope Baptist now has a permanent place to worship, ending 15 years of services held in schools or rented churches. "We were like nomads," said the Rev. Richard G. Beacham, the pastor. Hope Baptist is putting the finishing touches on the building and awaits final permits to occupy the space, expected to be granted this month.

For all their virtues, rowhouse neighborhoods share an inherent repetitiveness that tends to limit the pool of prospective residents. But the builders of a new community in East Baltimore have broken free from many of the strictures that typically govern rowhouse design, opening new possibilities for mixed-income communities. On one block, a three-story rowhouse features a mansard-style roof and dormer windows. The one next to it stands two stories tall and has a pitched roof. The end house rises three stories, with a pronounced cornice and flat roof.

I find it unbelievable that Dan Rodricks , in his Sunday column, thinks that the laws God gave us to live by are antiquated ("Ben Carson's conservative views are drawn from the Bible" Mar 30). The problems we face in this world today come from that same line of thinking. If we never turned our backs on God, we wouldn't live in a world on the edge of self destruction that exists today. All I can do is pray that the Lord opens Mr. Rodricks' eyes to the truth before He returns to take His church home.

The Johns Hopkins Children's Center — originally founded as the Harriet Lane Home for Invalid Children — celebrated its centenary earlier this month. Its endowment originated from the largesse of Harriet Lane, who during the mid-19th century was considered one of Washington's most glamorous women and hostesses. Harriet Rebecca Lane — she later dropped her middle name — was born in 1830 in Mercersburg, Pa., the daughter of Elliott Tole Lane and Jane Ann Buchanan Lane, and raised in Franklin County, Pa. Her mother was the sister of James Buchanan, who would become the 15th president of the United States in 1857.

Maryland is my home. Who would want to live elsewhere? We are America in miniature with our mountains, farmland and beaches. Our citizens are welcoming from Street to Saint Mary's and Frostburg to Federal Hill. That is why it is troubling to see neighbors battle against neighbors over the issue of Question 6. Some on both sides polarize their neighbors in an attempt to prove their side more worthy. I will tell you where I stand on the issue, but first let me share my beliefs, as I don't think Marylanders like me have had their voices recognized.

Maryland has been my home all my life. That is why it is so troubling to see neighbors battle against neighbors over Question 6, the referendum to legalize gay marriage ("Same-sex unions: What would Jesus do?" Oct. 25). As a person who believes deeply in the message of Jesus Christ, I'd like to tell you where I stand on the issue, because I don't think Marylanders like me have had their voices recognized in the debate. God knows I'm lesbian; in fact, that is how He created me. He is one of many who never left my side during my own process of coming out. I prayed and talked with God about who I am, and He has been my rock of salvation.
