  • God uses Christ’s suffering for our soul’s healing

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    All this past week I’ve been talking to people with scars for a series of stories that I wrote for the newspaper where I work.

    I got the idea from a photographer I heard on the radio, talking about a series of photos he had done of people’s scars.

    He said that every scar tells a story.

    When I was 9, I bent down to say “hi” to Sam Lang’s Basset hound and it jumped up and bit my face, tearing a hole from the right edge of my lip to my chin.

  • Love for each other matters more than size of church

    By Nancy Kennedy, Guest columnist

    Scattered throughout any community are tiny, struggling churches.

    Sometimes they’re invisible. If you blink while driving past them you’ll miss them. Or they’re eyesores — run down, weather worn.

    In my 20 years covering local religion for the newspaper, I’ve gotten to know the people at some of these little churches.

    I’ve attended their services and could count the people in the pews with two hands and not need a third.
