The Real Value Meal from The University of Florida Blog
April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and the theme this year is “Making Meaningful Connections.” What better way is there to connect with loved ones than sharing a meal together? There’s a popular saying that goes, “A family that eats together stays together.” But this is actually more than just a saying—lots of research supports this claim!

Stations of the Cross in store windows from Episcopal News Service
A few years ago, the Rev. Bur Dobbins, rector of Church of the Annunciation, Luling, read a newspaper article about the Stations of the Cross being read on the London Underground. An artist had designed a booklet to read the 14 Stations of the Cross as the subway traveled from station to station. With that memory, this year, it occurred to Dobbins that the people of Annunciation could place the Stations of the Cross down the busiest street in Luling

Maundy Thursday 2014: The History Behind The Holy Thursday Before Easter from The Huffington Post
Maundy Thursday is observed by Christians on the Thursday before Easter, which falls this year on April 17. "Holy Thursday," as it is also commonly known, marks the Last Supper of Jesus Christ with his apostles prior to his betrayal, trial and crucifixion as portrayed in the Christian gospels.
