  • One of the more threatening parables to anyone with a conscience is the parable of the good Samaritan. Considering that it is a parable about helping a person in dire straits, it’s not hard to understand why we cringe under the many verbs of helping the down and out man. What is most interesting to me is the unique difficulty it poses to people who consider themselves faithful to God. Kindness to those in need should be right up our alley, but the parable suggests that the good guys in the religious world have an Achilles heel in the mercy department.

  • Correct me if I am wrong, but I believe Carroll County is experiencing its own sort of Renaissance. Not necessarily returning to Greek sculpture and Italianate Villas, but I do see signs of artistic interest.

    Main Street alone has two art studios, two dance studios, and one music studio. That’s five opportunities to learn something new. That’s in addition to the various festivals we have with artists and musicians displaying their talents and multiple programs in the local schools promoting the arts.

    What is “The Arts” anyway?
