Kristofer Lindh-Payne will be spending Ash Wednesday greeting morning and evening commuters at the Ridgely Road light rail station. After a hearty "Good morning," he will remind passersby that it's Ash Wednesday and offers to draw the traditional ash cross on their foreheads.

The Rev. Paul Tunkle is retiring next year as rector of the Church of the Redeemer in Homeland, one of the largest churches in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland. "I am sensing a call from Christ to do something new," Tunkle, 63, of Bolton Hill, said in an interview June 3. "I don't know exactly what that is. It's probably going to have less to do with wearing robes and standing in front of an altar. I feel like maybe I'm being asked to turn a corner. " His planned departure next May will bring to a close an eventful 12-year chapter in the history of the church, in which he has overseen the installation of a geothermal heating and air-conditioning system, but has clashed with his more conservative congregants at times over his outspoken sermons on political and social justice issues.

A longtime “cornfusion” (our family word for confusion) surfaced Thursday.  First came the obituary for Walter Herman, former Roland Avenue neighbor,  News American  writer and relative to my sister by marriage. He was legendary in the 'hood and lived many years two blocks away on Roland.   When my husband told me of his obituary before breakfast on Thursday, I was startled. I thought I had seen him driving on Roland Avenue early in the week, so I asked the date of his death.
