  • Retired Carrollton Fire Chief Randy Tharp made a promise to his daughter, Melissa, that he would walk her down the aisle at her wedding, planned for Dec. 28, 2013. The family talked about moving the wedding to an earlier date, but Randy wouldn’t hear of it – even though he had been battling lung cancer for nearly three years.

    He kept his promise. He walked Melissa down the aisle and attended the reception afterward. He even took time to admonish a friend at the wedding, who he felt wasn’t taking care of herself.

  • About 10 years ago, I attended a seminar for religion writers, “How Religion Shapes Regional and Community Identity.”

    A panel of prestigious people with prestigious titles from prestigious institutions and organizations came to talk to us about how in the world we should cover this thing called religion.

    They talked about how religion affects art and about the phenomenon of “megachurches.” One person even talked about Elvis as a religious icon, complete with followers who make pilgrimages to the religious-sounding Graceland.

  • The 12 days of Christmas are in full swing as we continue to focus on the true meaning of Christmas.
