    Touted as the youngest ordained minister in history, 4-year-old Marjoe Gortner burst onto the Holy Ghost revival scene in the late 1940s.

    His father, a second-generation preacher, trained the boy, who had a talent for sweeping and pointed gestures, to proclaim the name of “Jay-zus” — and bilk money from the faithful who came to hear him preach.

    My New Year’s Eve celebrations are usually spent at home with my husband and children and maybe a few close friends and family.

    But just because its spent here on the farm, playing board games, drinking sparkling grape juice and trying to stay awake till 12:01 a.m. doesn’t mean that I don’t put a lot of effort in to what snacks I will serve. Since both of my kids really like to help out in the kitchen, I need to make sure this is something they want to help prepare and eat.

  • By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    About three years ago, my friend, a self-named foodie, moved to New York City and would send messages about all the amazing food he ate and even included photos. Last year he thought he died and went to epicurean paradise when he got a job at a public relations firm that handles big name chefs and fabulous restaurants.

    He said he gets paid to eat such awesome food that adjectives haven’t yet been invented to describe its awesomeness.

    Dear Santa,

    Our names are Avery and Harper Monroe. We are 4 months old. We are new at this so our big sister Caitlyn is helping us write you. She says we have to be good all year. Mommy and daddy say we have been good girls so far.

    Will you bring us walkers and some fun toys you think we will like. We will leave milk and cookies for you and food for your reindeer too. Be safe as you fly around the world.
