  • “Some churches still practice ‘old-fashioned’ foot washing. Is this a practice we should add to our modern expressions of faith?” — Jay

    This is indeed a very ancient (and typically Middle Eastern) practice. A gesture of hospitality, foot washing was an amenity extended to guests visiting in someone’s home. Often the servant (and sometimes the wife of the home) would perform this service while the guest was reclining at the table (see Gen. 18:4; 19:2; 24:32; 43:24).
    In the New Testament, we find a similar practice that appears to be common (Lk. 7:44; Mk. 1:7). Foot washing is mentioned in the list of criteria that characterize the faithful, serving widows in the church (I Tim. 5:10).

  • Laurie Lewis and Tom Rozum both grew up in the 60s. Rozum was more of a rocker and said that he started listening to more Folk and American-roots music after driving home to Connecticut after the infamous Woodstock Festival in August 1969.
    Lewis started listening to the same in high school and college. It was rumored that she really loved the music of the Dillards, the Greenbriar Boys, Ralph Stanley, Bill Monroe and Doc Watson. Watson, a musician and artist died Tuesday.
    Every folk music fan of the 60s and 70s and those of today, seem to love him. He will likely be remembered as a legendary guitarist for at least the next 100 years.

  • NEW YORK (AP) — There’s nothing like a backwoods blood feud to excite television viewers on Memorial Day.
    The first part of the History network’s miniseries “Hatfields & McCoys” was seen by 13.9 million viewers on Monday night, more than 17 million when the immediate repeat was added in, the Nielsen company said. The numbers held up for part two on Tuesday, which was watched by 13.1 million, Nielsen said.
    Those are huge numbers in the cable television world. No scripted series on the broadcast networks last week came close. By contrast, Fox’s series finale of “House” last week reached 8.7 million people.

  • MEDINA, Ohio (AP) — Like two aging baby boomers, “Funky Winkerbean” and creator Tom Batiuk have turned gray and have experienced their share of life’s ups and downs in a 40-year run on the funny pages.
    Batiuk, 65, has morphed his characters over the years from mop-headed beatniks to graying 60-somethings, much like the changes for Batiuk, his hair over his collar in the 1970s but now graying and cut short.
    The story lines have changed, too, from high school hijinks and awkward teen dating moments in the early years to dealing with more adult issues like alcoholism, suicide and fighting cancer. His latest hot topic story line during May: two boys who want to go to the high school prom together.
