  • Former resident helping the less fortunate

    Like her T-shirt, the bracelet Emily Fox wore and the earrings she carried in her purse were not, she explained, simply clothes or accessories.

    This Easter, as in previous years, Fox knows people around the country will join her and her family in wearing T-shirts which read “Forget the Frock.”

    All three items represent efforts to feed orphans in a third world country or help widows or families in need or assist women rescued from the sex trade.

    And why not laugh in church? There certainly is a time for being quiet and even for sadness. As the author of Ecclesiastes wrote, “There is an appointed time for everything…” including, “a time to cry and a time to laugh.”

  • Reading the right book

    I’m a reader. I enjoy a good book, and I often find myself anticipating something that I want to read, even months before it’s released.
