Jeannette has a story that could have had many tragic endings: drugs, depression, homelessness and tragic loss. But, to quote a popular song, Jeannette wasn't “going out like that.” She had a desire for more. The main reason for her fighting spirit was that she had a teenage daughter who needed her to keep it together.

I love publishing feature articles sharing the good stories of what’s happening around our diocese, and judging from website traffic, people love reading them. That’s why I was excited when I attended the annual Episcopal Communicators Conference earlier this month and one of the workshops was Turning facts into stories: Feature writing for writers and editors, presented by Summerlee Walter of the Diocese of North Carolina. She did such a good job breaking down the process of feature article writing that I want to share my notes with you, in the hope that some of you may be inspired to submit your own feature articles about some of the exciting things happening in your church.

“God, our mother and father ….”

And there were a few other little changes in Saturday’s Catholic Mass in Morristown.

For starters, the priests were women.

Which is why the service was celebrated in the Episcopal Church of the Redeemer, not a Catholic sanctuary.

I don’t want to look. I don’t want to look at the images coming from Nepal, where I spent time two years ago while on sabbatical. I don’t want to see the chilling pictures of landslides, toppled buildings and avalanches that have taken thousands of lives in and around Kathmandu.

And I don’t want to look at the footage of burning buildings in Baltimore, and close-ups pictures of angry young people venting their frustration in such destructive ways.
