David J. Earle As a Christian, it is personally important to me to incorporate Christ's chief works of corporal mercy into my life: Feed the hungry. Give drink to the thirsty. Clothe the naked. Shelter the homeless. Visit the sick. Visit the imprisoned. Bury the dead. While there are biblical passages that can be quoted to support each and every one of these mandates, these mandates are not unique to Christianity. Most faith-based world views recognize the importance of reaching out to society's most disenfranchised.

Paul Andersen, Weekend GLENDALE -- It sits on a mound in a swirl of freeway ramps, a low-slung, woodsy fauna-inflected bastion of seafood, at the true junction of the Ventura (134) and Glendale (2) freeways. It might not seem at first glance to be a hot night spot, but for much of the past year the Rusty Pelican has been steadily gaining a reputation as a great place to hear live jazz on weekend nights, thanks to the superlative sounds of 2AZZ1 and the Body and Soul Band and the Eric Byak Band.

Barack Obama has been picked as the next president. Propositions have been approved or turned down. How can faith guide us in making decisions on future Election Days? While we talk about separation of church and state, I do think that our faith can play a part in helping us make good decisions in our election day choices. We should choose from our heart, from a place of love, compassion, justice and righteousness, seeking to include as many people as possible, seeking to raise up those people and initiatives that will better our nation, state and communities.

Protestant and Catholic churches in Germany have reportedly warned against an exaggerated focus on health and fitness, which ministers say emphasizes fitness over compassion and stigmatizes those who don’t have an “ideal” body type. The preoccupation with external appearance and fitness is in danger of becoming a “health religion,” religious leaders say. What do you think? Is society so obsessed with these things that it’s almost a religion in itself?

W hat are your thoughts on dealing with the tragedy we saw recently at Virginia Tech? How do we make sense of the violence in this world? And how do you deal with the question of "Why?" Why did God let this happen? We live in a magnificent, yet dangerous, world. As if it weren't dangerous enough, we continually tempt fate, risk our lives and toy with death. We fly supersonic, Mach-speed planes directly at one another for the crowds, taunt alligators and stingrays to get ratings, and jump off cliffs, platforms and out of aircraft with nylon sheets or rubber bands and hope we don't splat onto the ground.
