andrews@herald-mail.com As he rode around town a few weeks ago, the Rev. Jay Zimmerman's eye fell on a peculiar sight inside a garbage truck. Zimmerman, the pastor of Christ United Methodist Church in Waynesboro, Pa., said he saw a potted plant on the seat in the cab. The plant seemed out of place, but it struck him as gorgeous. That seedling of an idea led to today's Easter sermon: "Amid the Trash. " The beauty of the plant was a strong contrast to the ugliness of the refuse.

Sermons - Trust, hope, resurrection By SCOTT BUTKI scottb@herald-mail.com Ministers and priests throughout the Tri-State area plan to make a variety of points in Easter service messages today.

By MARLO BARNHART Staff Writer When Mark Michael takes the pulpit in the Duke University Chapel today it won't be his preaching debut - by a long shot. At 18, the former Clear Spring High School honor student - believed to be the first freshman ever to win the honor of preaching in the majestic chapel in Durham, N.C. - is a veteran of interim preaching stints in rural community churches around Washington County. "We're taking a whole vanload of family and friends down," said Mark's mother, Jo Anne Michael, before the group's departure Saturday.

wandaw@herald-mail.com HAGERSTOWN - Had Eric Rollins been born 60 years ago, he might have been a member of the Poor People's Campaign or the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee, social movements that gave voice to youth eager to get involved in the civil rights movement. "It's our job as a community, as a church and as a people to help those who are disadvantaged," said Rollins, who said he draws inspiration from the perseverance of those involved in the social movements of the 1960s.

It wasn't long after Kirk Mullenix began standing on paper cups that he wondered how much more the cups could hold. Weeks later, Mullenix lowered his Ford F-150 from a jack onto 150 paper cups outside his church. "I had never seen paper cups do this before," he said. The experiment began when the pastor of Greencastle Church of the Brethren was preaching about the cup Christians believe was used at the Last Supper and Communion. Mullenix, 55, stood above the pews on a plywood contraption and eventually pulled away some cloth to reveal he was being supported by paper cups.
