In the past month, Johns Hopkins has routed Randolph-Macon (42-3 on Sept. 6) and Moravian (33-14 on Saturday). But the Blue Jays also had a 27-20 win over Centennial Conference opponent Susquehanna on Sept. 13 that was closer than expected. So which game is an accurate indicator of the Blue Jays' potential? Johns Hopkins coach Jim Margraff isn't sure. “I still think we're a work in progress,” he said Wednesday morning. “If we play a clean game with no turnovers and minimize big plays defensively, we can play with most people and certainly in our conference.

McDaniel coach Tim Keating had a challenge last week trying to motivate his team for yesterday's ECAC Southeast championship. The Green Terror had just lost embarrassingly at Johns Hopkins, ruining its NCAA Division III playoff hopes. Keating's instructions to his team for yesterday's season finale against Moravian couldn't have been simpler - have fun. That's exactly what the Green Terror did, using trick plays and capitalizing on Moravian mistakes to defeat the Greyhounds, 21-7, at Bair Stadium in Westminster yesterday.

BETHLEHEM, PA. / / You don't have to travel far to learn Bethlehem's Moravian history. The story of its founding by Christian missionaries in the 18th century echoes underfoot on cobbled streets and from austere limestone buildings scattered throughout the downtown. Bethlehem's Colonial roots are never more apparent than at Christmas, its name having been given to the community on Christmas Eve 1741 by its first Moravian settlers. This is high season in the Christmas City, as the town is informally named.

As 2006 draws to a close, revelers will gasp at the Inner Harbor fireworks, and partygoers will raise their glasses to toast the new year. But at churches around the city and across the country, many will mark the hour in a different way: by approaching the altar and dropping to their knees at Watch Night services. "You start off with giving [God] the first part of the year," said Bishop Kevia F. Elliott, pastor of The Lord's Church in Pimlico, who expects more than 600 congregants and friends to gather for music, testimony and preaching past midnight.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - The Central Moravian Church and its lamplit, bowler-capped belfry is a venerated local landmark in the Lehigh Valley of eastern Pennsylvania, and never more so than at Christmas. But when you love a thing too much, you can get careless, and this is where David Griffiths comes in. Griffiths, 73, a member of the congregation for five years, is also its safety director, a more modest version of the corporate positions he held before he retired. His challenge now is making sure that on Christmas Eve the 200-year-old sanctuary will not be consumed by the flames of 1,000 beeswax candles in the hands of holiday-loving amateurs - his fellow congregants.
