Gospel legend Sandi Patty is coming to the Maryland Theatre Friday, Nov. 23, for the opening date of her "Christmas Celebration Tour" with Jason Crabb. During a phone chat this week from her home in Oklahoma City, Okla., we purposefully avoided the same old questions she's been asked many times before and dug deep for some off-the-beaten-path tidbits from her illustrious career. (Some comments have been edited for length.) HERALD-MAIL: So Jason Crabb - how did this come about?

chambersburg@herald-mail.com WAYNESBORO, Pa. - Five Forks Brethren in Christ Church was a whirlwind of activity Sunday: Juggling pins, unicycles and balloon hats flew across the room where worship services are normally held. Between their entertaining antics, members of the Fitz Family Ministry subtly incorporated the Gospel message that everyone should let their God-given talents shine. The talents of the Fitz Family - the stage name of the Schoepp family - were clear during the three-hour-long performances at the Waynesboro church.

marlob@herald-mail.com Looking back on her earliest childhood memories, Jenny Wilt sees that her life has been defined by her love of gospel music and her faith in God. "Since my father was a minister, I played piano at his church - Wilson Chapel - many times when I was growing up," Wilt said. Wilt took up the piano when she was about 10 years old after a brief flirtation with the accordion. "I took accordion lessons for a while but switched to piano because the adult accordion was too heavy for me," she said.

Hagerstown couple tours the world to spread Gospel By ANDREA BROWN-HURLEY andreabh@herald-mail.com If prayers and hugs could change the world, the Revs. Mike and Kathleen Kianetski of Hagerstown would be off to a good start. The evangelist founders of Young at Heart Ministries travel the globe spreading the Gospel, teaching Christian church leaders and youth, and ministering to people in need. The Kianetskis know their work alone won't erase the rampant poverty they've seen in India or the civil unrest they've witnessed in Israel, but "you never know if one person you might touch will impact a whole nation," said Kathleen Kianetski, 49. She and her husband do their part to spread love and knowledge in "God's big world," they said, hoping to help young people and church leaders in such places as India, Mexico and Mauritius - a tiny island off South Africa - better understand Christianity so they can in turn help those around them by putting Christian principles into practice.
