Reverend Roy Mitchell of Columbia College gave the keynote address at the Interfaith Partners of South Carolina annual meeting last night. Rev Mitchell is a fan of acronyms, so he made up this one out of the word IDEALS to illustrate what has actually been happening in South Carolina as the 10 faith groups represented in this volunteer organization have been working towards the goal of understanding and practicing Co...Read Full Post »

Ever heard the sentiment 'Patience is a virtue but too much of it can hurt you'? This topic came up when we visited Orangeburg.
