This article from The Christian Heart, titled “Grandma Peggy’s Breakfast Club,” commemorates Peggy Winckowski’s weekly breakfast invitation to neighborhood teenagers, which started with her grandson Sam and his friends. After Sam passed away, Winckowski continued the tradition — first to process grief, then to share faith and community. “The Lord helped me take something tragic and make something good come out of it,” Winckowski writes. “The Breakfast Club has given me a chance to love and serve others which is what Jesus calls us to do.”

This article from Vatican News, titled “Iraq’s Christians observe 'Nineveh Fast' for peace in Middle East,” honors the devotion of Syriac Christians, led by Patriarch Louis Raphaël Sako, in the Middle East. The yearly Nineveh Fast remembers the three days Jonah spent in the belly of a fish and celebrates the Ninevites’ fasting after their repentance to God in the book of Jonah. “Syriac Christian communities, which draw from theological and liturgical traditions in the Syriac language rather than in Latin or Greek, date back to the earliest days of Christianity,” Joseph Tulloch writes.
