  • I am a recovering nice person. As a former nice person, I rarely said no to anything, even (and especially) to things I really, really, really didn't want to do.

    Because I couldn't stand the thought of someone possibly thinking badly of me for saying no, I've done some things I had no business doing - heading up committees, teaching a class, organizing a rummage sale.

  • Three local congregations will observe the beginning of the Lenten season, the 40 days preceding Easter, with an Ash Wednesday service at 7 p.m. on Feb. 6 at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 116 S. Columbia Ave.

Jim Murphy, pastor of Bethel First Presbyterian Church, will be the preacher. Pastors Delmetria Cayson-Combs and Karl Lusk will be the worship leaders.

  • There's no required reading or test to be passed when two people decide to build a life together.
