The Rev. Frank B. Lampe III, former pastor of St. Mark Evangelical Lutheran Church in Baltimore who in recent years served as an interim pastor for many area congregations, died of cancer Nov. 16 at his Parkville home. He was 72. Mr. Lampe was born in Baltimore and reared in Perry Hall, where in his youth he attended St. Michael Lutheran Church. He was a 1948 graduate of Kenwood High School. "At the time he was finishing high school, there was a pastor at St. Michael's who encouraged him. It was during the summer between high school and college, when he was considering studying a number of things including engineering, that he felt a pull toward the seminary," said his wife of 24 years, the former Kate Jacobsen.

A fire at All Saints Evangelical Lutheran Church in Northeast Baltimore escalated to three alarms before city firefighters were able to bring it under control Thursday, officials said. The fire, which had no immediately known cause, was contained to the church in the 4200 block of Loch Raven Blvd., in the city's New Northwood neighborhood. The department called for a three-alarm response to keep the flames from spreading to adjoining buildings, spokesman Ian Brennan said. Smoke billowed high into the sky before firefighters knocked down the fire at about 3:48 p.m., a little less than an hour after the initial alarm sounded.

The families climbing out of their cars on the parking lot of St. John Evangelical Lutheran Church on Sunday looked as though they could be headed to a children's soccer game. Most were dressed in standard summer casual wear of shorts and T-shirts, and just about everyone carried a lawn chair or blanket. Some had bottled water in hand. Their destination was the front lawn of the Columbia church. For nearly 10 summers, services have been held there under three large, old maple trees, with the sky as the ceiling, the grass as the floor and with pastors whose white clerical collars are tucked into custom-made, short-sleeved shirts of a bold, Hawaiian print.

I thank The Sun for its coverage of the refusal by the Federal Emergency Management Agency and President Barack Obama to grant federal disaster relief to Maryland in the wake of Hurricane Sandy ("U.S. denies aid to Md. storm victims," Dec. 5). The need on the lower Eastern Shore is desperate, especially in the town of Crisfield where hundreds have been displaced due to mold or damage to heat or water systems. Many of those displaced lived in federally-subsidized housing and have little prospect of being able to rebuild without considerable help.

Despite the rain, snow and blustery wind Saturday, a crowd of more than 100 robed clergy and their congregants surrounded the 18-foot-tall bronze statue of Martin Luther that overlooks Lake Montebello and recreated the original unveiling service from 75 years ago. "Where he lived, there was lots of snow all the time," joked Bishop Wolfgang D. Herz-Lane, leader of the Delaware-Maryland Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. "This would not have deterred him. " The crowd, which tried to stay dry underneath two tents and umbrellas, followed the program of the statue's dedication on Oct. 31, 1936, offering the same prayers and intoning the same hymns.

A man who said he resisted God's call to service for most of his life was installed Saturday as bishop of the Maryland- Delaware Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America before 500 in a Baltimore church. At a ceremony that alternated formal religious rites and lighter moments, the Rev. Wolfgang D. Herz-Lane told a crowd that included the presiding bishop of the ELCA that he first heard God's call as a schoolboy in his native Germany. But he pursued careers in journalism and social work before entering the seminary in his early 40s. "The more he called, the more I resisted," said Herz-Lane, 56. "But God has his ways, doesn't he?

Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It not only prompts a gathering of my immediate family, which is a blessing in itself, but it also lets loose a stream of memories of my boyhood and Thanksgiving feasts enjoyed with other family members who gathered at our house on 109th Street in North Troy, N.Y. to celebrate the day and the knowing of each other. Nothing is more evocative of my earliest years than the smell of the turkey cooking in the oven, the potatoes, sauerkraut and other dishes simmering on the stove and the arrival of loved ones bringing us hugs and kisses and genuine delight in the occasion.
