The La Cañada United Methodist Church has just named its amphitheater "The George Nichols Amphitheater." The namesake is George Nichols, a long-time resident of La Cañada Flintridge and a charter member of the La Cañada United Methodist Church. In 1973, Nichols helped with the church youth program and had the idea of helping the youth build an outdoor amphitheater on the church property. As an engineer, he designed and supervised the youth in their work. For the past 34 years it has been used by the church for various functions, including the annual Helping Hands Concert, Vacation Bible School and Easter Sunrise Services.

Alecia Foster NORTHWEST GLENDALE -- There are many people go through life regretting things they have done or should have done. That's no way to live, said the Rev. Joseph Shea of Holy Family Catholic Church. "We don't have the ability to go back and change things," Shea said. Shea will use some of Jesus' last words -- "It is finished" -- to illustrate his sermon about leaving regrets behind during a special worship service on Good Friday.

La Cañada United Methodist Church is supporting two activities to assist an orphanage in Africa. The first is a collection of shoes in all children's sizes that the La Cañada Girl Scout Troop 576 is sending to Machao Orphanage in Kenya, Africa. The Scouts became acquainted with this orphanage through Dr. Carolyn Rowley, a Burbank resident, who has visited there and is helping to provide support. Currently there are 13 resident children, all who lost their parents to AIDS. They walk one and a half hours each way to school six days a week, and also for church on Sunday, with only sandals for footwear.

Pastor Paige Eaves Americans are feeling the pinch of difficult financial times. High gas prices, foreclosures and rising debt are all taking a toll. What does the Bible teach us about financial responsibility? And how are these economic challenges manifesting themselves within your congregation? Lots of people think that “God helps those who help themselves” is the Bible’s best statement on financial responsibility. If this were true, we’d all keep tugging away at our own bootstraps in times of trouble, never pausing to see if our neighbors could use a little help.

LA CRESCENTA — Reverend Paige Eaves has a sure fire "tell" that gives her away when she's really passionate about an issue: Her southern drawl — barely noticeable most days — slips out. And her new position as pastor of the Crescenta Valley United Methodist Church brings out that drawl. "I inherited this great worship space," Eaves said of the Crescenta Valley church. At 43, the Birmingham, Ala. transplant arrived at her new position in August toting an impressive resume that highlights her devotion to social issues and to young people.

This is the time of year when people think about what resolutions they will make for the coming year. A resolution to lose weight, earn more money, quit smoking is sometimes made with high hopes that for most, in the end, results in failure.

Apparently, your brain rewires itself to expect less food, less nicotine and less slouchy couch time.

GLENDALE — Glendale is admired throughout the region for its exemplary mid-century architecture according to the Glendale Historical Society, which plans to showcase tonight just why that is. The group is planning a tour of the First United Methodist Church, which boasts a distinctive 112-foot-high trilon tower, and a slide presentation of other residential and institutional modern architectural examples in the city. Built in 1960 by architects Ralph Flewelling and Walter Moody, the First United Methodist Church is laid out with classical European churches in mind but its design and stylings are distinctly modern, said Don Galleher, the church’s youth director, who will lead the historical society’s tour.
