It is sad to hear about another religious institution facing foreclosure ("Reisterstown synagogue joins victims of slump," May 1). That particular building and the surrounding nine or so acres are quite nice and would adapt well to becoming an interfaith center such as those in Columbia. As our communities grow and become more diverse, the model of a multi-use building should be considered in the planning of future spiritual communities. Patty Koch, Reisterstown

For many Christians, Easter morning is a time when churchgoers flock to their places of worship to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ. One church in Timonium, however, is sending its parishioners away — specifically, 3 miles south along York Road to Towson University's SECU Arena. "It's our first time being at SECU Arena, and we are very excited. Our ministry teams, from 7 years old and up, are very excited to serve [Easter] Sunday," said Kellie Caddick, matter conference coordinator at Church of the Nativity.

Beneath signs for "Dinner for Schmucks" and "Step Up 3D," young parishioners with the Horizon Church of Towson file into the AMC Theater at Towson Commons for their Sunday service. The church has used the upstairs theater space for six years, attracted by its central location and proximity to Towson University. While unconventional for worship, the theater is a comfortable meeting space for the congregation of about 130 — and it's affordable at $300 per week. But church members are concerned about what will happen to the shopping complex in the heart of Towson that houses the theater.

Great news, everyone. I tracked down Kegasus in his “man stall,” and after he made all the reporters on hand close their eyes and throw darts at a dartboard, he finally answered all the softball questions they had to throw at him. But here at Baltimore Sports Blitz, I ask the hard questions -- even to hairy, sweaty, husky men who get paid by the Maryland Jockey Club to wear half of a horse costume in public. You might have heard that the world will start to come to an end sometime before the Preakness tonight.

Christmas Eve worshipers at Columbia's Village of Oakland Mills on Tuesday will do the interfaith shuffle: Catholics departing the sanctuary with their hymnals, white altar cloth, candles and crucifix; Protestants entering with their own hymnals, white cloth, candles and cross. Then Protestants out, Catholics back in. So the ritual dance swings on, decades after people of many faiths first gathered to worship under one roof at the Oakland Mills Interfaith Center and similar spots in other Columbia villages.

Sam Chamelin, pastor of the Lazarus United Church of Christ in Lineboro, lives just down the two-lane road from the historic church that anchors this rural community. On Tuesday, he could see the structure glowing in the morning light. "Sam, the church is on fire," a parishioner had phoned to tell him. Chamelin jumped in his car with a "sick feeling" and headed to the church, as many of its 175 parishioners would that day. The church, which traces its history to 1853 and expanded to its existing building in 1908, before sprinklers were required, was destroyed in the blaze.

Baltimore sage H.L. Mencken provided several observations that are relevant to the current political situation. For example, he wrote that "people constantly speak of 'the government' doing this or that, as they might speak of God doing it. But the government is really nothing but a group of men, and usually they are very inferior men. " On the fact that the fractious incompetents in Congress were all duly elected and that the country has thus...

In the shadow of the McCulloh Homes, Shirley Bush watched as a crowd of worshipers poured out of cars and buses and gathered in front of Sharp St. Memorial United Methodist Church to pray in defiance of the week's violence, and remembered her own son who was killed by gunfire in April. Her son Ralph Timmons Jr. and her 11-year-old grandson were shot when two men burst into his home in a robbery attempt, according to police. The boy is doing well, Bush said, but she struggles to find meaning in all of the recent deaths.

Each week The Sun's John McIntyre presents a relatively obscure but evocative word with which you may not be familiar, another brick to add to the wall of your working vocabulary. This week's word: LATITUDINARIAN The original Latitudinarians were Church of England divines during the reign of Charles II.
