Sentinal Column on the Natural Beauty Around Us
Emily has managed to include a short course in wild flowers and
birding into her very fine article on taking time to appreciate the
beauty all around us:
Sentinal Column on Interfaith Dialog
to this article was inadvertently omitted last month!) Emily's
articles in the Sentinal's "Faith In Focus" series are always
well-written and interesting. Even so, she outdid herself on
this column. It begins with a discussion of Shavuot, but the
heart of the article is the description of the recent Interfaith
Service for Peace and Justice, held in Harrisburg on May 8.
It's a wonderful read.
