The Parable of the Prodigal Son is perhaps the best known story of the whole Bible, rivaled only by the Parable of the Good Samaritan. It is a simple yet timeless story that has captivated generations of Christians and non-Christians alike. What makes this parable so appealing is the hope that it transmits. Generations of men and women have found hope and encouragement in the conversion experience of the young man who insulted his father by asking for his inheritance, misused his gifts and talents, and then returned to his father’s house with intentions that were far from perfect.

One of my favorite pictures from the trip Paul and I took to the Holy Land was the very first picture I snapped. Paul and I, smiling into the camera: I’m holding a glass of champagne — and we both have gigantic Ash Wednesday ashes on our foreheads.

Nearly 400 members of Saint Raymond Church in Alma, Saint Rose of Lima, Baxley and Good Shepherd, Hazelhurst celebrated the dedication of a new Church to serve the needs of all three communities on April 6.


The new church, a mile down the road from Saint Raymond, is named in honor of Saint Frances of Rome at the request of a generous donor who died in 1999. Maurice Adelman, Jr. bequeathed $290,000 for a parish or mission provided it was named for Saint Frances of Rome in recognition of Frances Fanny Toohey.

Let me preface this by saying that if it were up to Magan, this entire entry into the annals of large family living would never have happened in the first place, including me making my daughter cry, because the device in question for all of the ruckus in our living room would not exist in our house in the first place.

We do a disservice to Holy Week and to the Passion of Christ if we view these events solely as preordained outcomes of God’s plan of redemption. What would be the point of God putting on a spectacle for us?

DUBLIN--There’s something to be said about a warm Southern welcome. After experiencing his very own, Pete Kreiner decided to give back in a unique way. Kreiner is a beekeeper from Michigan who travels down South to Georgia during the cold months — November through May — to tend to his own kind of flock, or should I say colony? His purpose in doing so is to restock his bees because it’s too cold in the winter months in Michigan to keep them alive and well.
