Violence? Fine; Love? Forget it To the editor: By now many of you have learned about the United Church of Christ's (UCC) TV advertisement that notes that Jesus welcomed all people and that the UCC denomination seeks to do the same. Officials of two major television networks have refused to run the ad because they believe the commercial promotes gay marriage and thus is unacceptable for broadcast. The ad is about Jesus' extravagant love for and welcome of all people and implies that exclusion of any or certain groups from God's house is neither spiritually nor Biblically sound.

HAGERSTOWN -- Carli Shank was a natural for her first role in the second performance of the Easter drama, "His Story," 10 years ago at Virginia Avenue Church of God. That year, she was called upon to lie in a manger wrapped in swaddling clothes while portraying the baby Jesus in the church's Easter drama. Then just 6 months old, Carli, now 10, was perfect for the role. She was tended by Mary and Joseph, portrayed that year by Paula Bushman and Steve Shifflett. The first year, the baby Jesus was a doll.

Tri-State area ministers and priests took pages from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John in preparing Easter Messages for today saying the resurrection of Jesus is a call for Christians to think about a renewal of their own lives. "Easter is God's triumph over all of the things we humans believe are final, things we have no escape from, like death," said the Rev. Stan Jones, a priest at Trinity Episcopal Church in Shepherdstown, W.Va. Trinity Episcopal brought back an old tradition this year with Baptism following the Holy Saturday Easter Vigil, Jones said.

A reader recently complained that religion is based on "just a bunch of stories. " I replied that the stories happen to be true - not necessarily as science, history, or journalism - but as an indication of how things are and how people are meant to be. One reason adults become skeptical about religion is because their faith rests on stories they learned in childhood. Jonah and the Whale, Daniel in the Lion's Den, and Noah and the Ark are vivid tales that appeal to the imagination rather than to our intellects.
