  • Finally acknowledging God hunger

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    We were eating pizza — thin crust, perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.

    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?

  • Lost and found

    By Nancy Kennedy

    Tachycardia is a dangerously rapid heartbeat, arrhythmia is an irregular heartbeat and dead is no heartbeat at all — and I had all three recently.

    That may be a slight exaggeration and a bit of melodrama, but the truth is I experienced severe panic recently.

    And by “my camera” I mean the one the Chronicle gave me to use and not mine to keep.

    “For such a time as this?” This comment comes from the little Book of Esther found in the Old Testament.

    If you are a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ have you been chosen by God the Father “for such a time as this?”

    Oh NO! You say “I’m not of importance like Esther. How could my life be prepared for such a time as this?
