Explaining a bar and bat mitzvah

For many Christians in the western hemisphere, including Roman Catholics, the Sacrament of Confirmation is a celebration of their coming of age. In many Protestant churches, the rite of Confirmation is seen as a mature statement of a person's faith. This is why many western Christians are confirmed between the ages of 12 and 15, when they are on the cusp of adulthood and capable of fully realizing the importance of professing their faith.

In Response: Bumper sticker ideology

I am writing in response to an article written by my friend and Christian brother, Jason Dees. I am writing because of others who have asked for my response. Jason is a very bright, energetic and faithful minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We enjoy each other's company, and our congregations long have worshipped together and engaged in ministry together in this community. When Jason speaks, I listen. Of course, I do not always agree. We come from different traditions that have disagreed over some things for centuries.

Capes Jackson: Go green!

The birds haven't visited my garden lately. I can't really blame them. Over the winter months, I abandoned the white fenced-in area filled with bird feeders, red double knockout roses, butterfly bushes, flowering annuals and perennials, garden art, wind chimes, fountain and my favorite bench. As I opened the gate this weekend, my eyes swept over empty clay pots, dead flowers, rose bushes void of shape and color, molded feeders and a fountain filled with murky water and algae.
