  • Fall: Taking advantage of the third gardening season

    Gardening this year has surely had its ups and downs. It rained profusely in April and May, delaying planting.

  • Living a blood-cleansed life

    (Editor’s note: Nancy Kennedy is on vacation this week. This column, one of her favorites, ran in 2005.)

    On May 30, 1978, the blood of Jesus cleansed me from all my sin.

    Actually, that happened 2,000 years before that, but I didn’t know it until that day.

    As my Jesus-anniversary present this year, I bought myself a CD of old hymns set to new music. It’s called “For All the Saints,” the third Indelible Grace project. (See www.igracemusic.com)

    Consider a report early this year by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, which said that nearly 63 million Americans volunteered at least once last year, with each spending 52 hours on average serving others.
