  • Torch Column: Reverendly Yours

    There are real grounds now for anxiety about the future of our nation and subsequently the world. For many, the worry has less to do with the one controversial figure currently occupying the Oval Office, and more to do with a spineless Congress that has lost all proportion and meaning in terms of preserving democracy and acting responsibly on behalf of human good.

    Not every American leader has enjoyed the support of the progressive population. Many differences have played out in the course of a

    Celebration Sunday - The Big Mix-Up

    But not what you think! I’m referring to the remarkable mix of generations that collaborated on one outstanding Sunday celebration—the one conducted on March 5.

    In the Spotlight - Carol Romagosa
    -Submitted by Jan Crane

    “Education” is a word that sums up Carol’s life- she loves it and she lives it! A lifelong passion for learning propelled her to a first degree in Pharmacy (Albany College 1967) and later to a Masters and Doctorate in Health Promotion and Education at the University of Utah (2010.) She has taken classes ‘just for fun’ in creative writing, stress management, Chinese philosophy, poetry, the works of Carl Jung, Tai Chi, and Shakespeare for t
