  • Will beauty be able to save the world?

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith columnist

    At my church we talk a lot about beauty.

    The ancient Greeks and the early Christians elevated three prime virtues: truth, goodness and beauty, and as Russian novelist Dostoevsky wrote, “Beauty will save the world.”

    A longing for beauty is primal. A lack of it brings despair.

  • Soldiers’ stories prove truth of life’s source

    By Larry Coleman, Faith Columnist

    Last night my wife and I watched for the first time the heralded movie “Unbroken.”

    This powerful visual story brought two very significant facts to light once again for me. First, the inhumanity of man to his fellow man. Second, the power and the reality of a life changing relationship with our creator though his son, Jesus Christ.

  • 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

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith columnist

    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.
