The providing test

For as long as humanity has dialogued with God, the debate about whether the divine tests His people has continued. Ancient pagans would sacrifice in order to appease their deities. They did not want the calamity they believed the gods could inflict. Sometimes they even sacrificed children. In the western world, belief in one God […]


Singing siblings earn invites from national music shows

COLUMBIA—Marriage is still brand new for Irene and Howard Chambers of Charleston, who tied the knot in late October in Baltimore. Paul and Rita Thiel of Irmo, meanwhile, first said their vows 64 years ago in Wisconsin. The two couples, balanced at different ends of the marriage journey, joined hundreds of others who renewed their […]

Students were once taught that when referring to generic individuals in abstract situations, the masculine pronoun “he” was to be used. An example might be, “if someone has two apples, he has two snacks.” Over time, exclusive use of gender specific pronouns has become frowned upon.

The Diocese of Charleston is losing eight of its principals, some of whom have been in the leadership position for many years — a couple even spanning decades.
