Like many rabbis, David Greenspoon spends a lot of time performing services away from houses of worship - officiating weddings, presiding over bar and bat mitzvahs, visiting the sick. And he recently started noticing something odd: More and more people in these settings were telling him they belonged to no congregation at all. "If I ever joined a synagogue, it would have to have this, that, or the other," he said they'd confide. Greenspoon had run into a notable trend. Among the non-Orthodox, a solid majority of American Jews are unaffiliated with a synagogue today - an impediment for those who, like many, at least want to attend services during the High Holy Days, 10 days of sacred importance that begin Wednesday evening.

Before Saturday afternoon's game against Lutheran, Annapolis Area Christian School's Ryan Slenk had attempted just one field goal all season, and that was blocked. The senior admitted to a few nerves when he stepped up for the potential game-winning field goal against the host Saints. Lutheran had a two-point lead with two seconds left and the Eagles clinging to a 15-game winning streak. Slenk, who said he had never kicked a field goal with so much on the line, blocked out the pressure and booted his 21-yarder through the uprights to give the Eagles a 22-21 victory and extend their winning streak to 16 — the longest active streak in the Baltimore metro area.

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.

"When you're on top," winning coaches say, "everyone wants to bring you down."This is a concept Baltimore Lutheran's boys basketball team has not had to worry about for at least the last decade.The Saints, who compete in the Maryland Scholastic Association C Conference -- haven't had a winning season since 1983 and their gymnasium is devoid of any MSA championship banners.With Lutheran (10-5, 7-2) scheduled to play only three more regular- season games, the winning season is inevitable, but whether or not they have the wherewithal to secure their first MSA title should be determined within the next 48 hours.

Lutheran's winning the MSA B Conference soccer championship at Essex Community College yesterday was mildly surprising.Consider: The Saints had not won a soccer title since 1975 and had finished second to Southern in Division II of the MSA B Conference this season. And they came into the season without an experienced goalkeeper.Despite those odds, Lutheran slipped by Southern yesterday, 3-2, and senior keeper Kevin Karwacki deserved as much credit as anyone.Karwacki, who had seven saves yesterday, had played stopper back for three seasons before coach Paul Doerr asked him to shift into the goal this fall.

The developers of a new retirement community in Ellicott City are to break ground Thursday, nearly 10 years after their organization was given the land for the site. The Lutheran Village at Miller's Grant could house 400 people upon completion, expected in 2015. The $140 million development takes its name from the family of Charles E. Miller and his son Paul, which gave the Frederick Road land in 2005 to Carroll Lutheran Village, a Westminster-based organization that started a retirement community in 1977 and today serves about 700 people in 400 homes.

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, headquartered in Baltimore and celebrating its 75th anniversary with a gala tonight, has at least part of the solution to the problem of unaccompanied children crossing the U.S. border with Mexico - and it's not sending them back where they came from. LIRS thinks just the opposite should occur: a full embrace of the problem by the government and faith-based organizations, and foster homes for the children who have no relatives here. So officials at the national headquarters near Baltimore's Inner Harbor have been asking Lutheran families (and anyone else with a heart and a spare room)
