  • Preparing meals for others
  • God says ‘Give me another chance’ to those who rebel

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    Recently, I met a young guy who told me about his faith journey with Jesus.

    He had grown up in church but didn’t want to follow Jesus once he got older. He didn’t go into details, but he said he was a knucklehead and did a lot of stuff he knew was wrong and didn’t really want to do what’s right.

    One day he was out driving and hydroplaned his car and it stopped just before going over a ledge.

  • A truth about which Jews and Christians can agree

    I can honestly say it was the best gefilte fish I ever ate, mainly because I’d never eaten any before.

    “Gefilte” sounds tastier than “ground up raw fish mixed with eggs, onions and matzoh meal then stuffed into the skin of a de-boned fish and poached.”

    I ate it as part of a Passover Seder as a guest of Congregation Beth Sholom Jewish Synagogue in Beverly Hills, Fla.

  • God has invited you to a forgiveness feast

    One of my favorite jokes goes like this:

    A woman whose husband just left her for another woman walks the beach and finds a bottle in the sand. After pulling out the cork, a genie appears and grants her three wishes, with one stipulation: Whatever she wishes for her husband receives double.

  • 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.
