It stands stalwart among the golden cornfields and verdant pastures in the horse country of northern Baltimore County, a church steeped in history and gazing toward the future. St. James Episcopal Church has survived the birth of the nation, the turmoil of the Civil War and the poor fortunes of an outpost chapel. Revolutionary War soldiers are said to be buried in the church cemetery. And George Washington is thought to have gazed at the pastoral sanctuary while eating breakfast at a hostelry across the road.

IF YOU SPOT ANYONE today carrying one of those greenish fronds from trees that grow in the tropics, it's a fair assumption that they've just come from church. Today, after all, is the day Christians celebrate Palm Sunday.But in the Baltimore of my childhood, you didn't need to see palm fronds to tell which of your neighbors had been to church.If you spotted three formally dressed women having a chocolate soda or lemon phosphate on a Wednesday night at the Guilford Pharmacy's soda fountain, you could be pretty sure they had just left the weekly Miraculous Medal novena at SS. Philip and James Church.
