In the first decades of the 19th Century, the widespread tent revivals moved the focus of religion from dissecting creed to feeling the spirit.

Holy Thursday's Watch Offers an Opportunity for Reflection and Prayer

Connectivity – a doublespeak word if there ever was one.

It is, in fact, dis-connectivity. Life through devices makes us not present in our immediate world and takes us outside of ourselves and into the world of entertainment, sports, social media, etc.

My favorite is the commercial for some streaming service where the guy says “Now you watch movies on your phone,” as if ...

Reflections on a Journey Back to the Old Country

Why would they all leave?

It’s the question to which I know the answer to, but still find it incomprehensible when I see the rugged beauty and enjoy the simple lifestyle of Southern Italy even for a too-short vacation. 

They left to find work. They left for the promise of America, and the belief that aspiration leads to ascension.

In the earliest days of Southern Italian ...

How to Make Perfectly Cooked Hard-Boiled Eggs

And those things are great — if you have them. But all you really need to make a great egg is a pot and some water.

This method is great for making anything from one large egg to a couple dozen at ...

Massachusetts Benefits from Lingering Law to Sell Liquor in New Jersey Supermarkets

April 7, 2019

In Massachusetts, we have been following the ongoing debate in New Jersey to expand the number of liquor licenses that one entity can own.

Massachusetts had endured these onerous restrictions until lawmakers and ...

And Every Word is True by Gary McAvoy

And Every Word is True by Gary McAvoy (Literati, 2019)

Some books you can’t wait to finish; some books you never want to end. For me, Gary McAvoy’s rivetting new book, And Every Word is True, was so intriguing that I did not want it to finish it. Granted, true crime is my favorite genre, and any book about Truman Capote’s classic In Cold Blood is going to lure my attention.
