Despite their different beliefs and worship styles, the Bowling Green Christian community came together on Friday for a "Pilgrimage" incorporating four different locations and involving many more churches.
The churches and those attending the various services united in remembrance of the crucifixion of Jesus Christ as all prepared for this weekend's Easter celebrations.
In song, with scripture and in sacred prayer, the various services all sought to reflect on the significance of Christ.
Rev. Chris Walter of First United Methodist Church prayed during the second session at First Presbyterian Church.
"We are all there at the foot of the cross," he said. "We are all children of God."
The afternoon portion began at Trinity United Methodist Church and ended at St. Aloysius Catholic Church. The evening session was held at St. Mark's Lutheran Church.

Going by the numbers, the American institution of marriage appears to be declining faster than a sled on Conneaut Hill.
It’s a fact that social pundits deplore, since there is plenty of legitimate research to point to, showing that “married people are happier, healthier and wealthier than unmarried people,” confirms Dr. Gary Lee, chairman of the sociology department at Bowling Green State University until his retirement in 2013.
But take a look at a single statistical comparison:
In the year 1970, 76.5 of every 1,000 unmarried women made a trip down the aisle. By 2010 the number of women getting married had plummeted by well over half, to just 31.1 of every 1,000.
“The marriage rate has been going down quite dramatically since 1970, and there is no sign that is slowing,” Lee said.
Who — or what — is to blame?
It’s a point of sharp disagreement, Lee acknowledged late Thursday, as he offered the 2014 Arts and Sciences Distinguished Faculty Lecture on “The Limits of Marriage: Why Getting Everyone Married Won’t Solve All Our Problems.”
There is the camp that agrees with Mona Charen of the Heritage Foundation when she suggests that “everybody go out right now, if you’re not married, go get married and that will solve all these problems,” namely the fact that unmarried women are 73 percent less well off than married women.

BG school board renews contracts PDF Print E-mail

The Bowling Green Board of Education has renewed the contracts of several administrators.
Contract extensions were given to Scott Seeliger, high school athletic director, through 2016; James Lang, Conneaut Elementary principal, through 2017; Donna Zielinski, special needs coordinator, through 2017; and Dawn Dazell, part-time human resources administrator, through 2017.
Also during Tuesday's meeting, Pam Varty, physical education teacher at Crim Elementary, and Dr. Pam Bechtel, an associate professor in the School of Human Movement, Sport, and Leisure Studies at Bowling Green State University, voiced their concern about BGHS allowing students to opt out of physical education.
The board last month approved the opt-out as long as students participate in interscholastic athletics, marching band or cheerleading for at least two full seasons while enrolled in the high school.

ReadyCare moving to BGSU site PDF Print E-mail

New patients will be matriculating at the Falcon Health Center next month.
Wood County Hospital will close its ReadyCare facility on North Main Street and shift those services to the health center near the campus effective May 12.
Falcon Health Center, which opened last fall to provide medical care to students and staff at Bowling Green State University, is operated by Wood County Hospital.
ReadyCare offers basic, non-emergency treatment for illness and infections on evenings and weekends, filling a gap left between emergency rooms and doctors offices. Shifting the service to Falcon Health Center will allow for expanded hours and treatment options, said Catharine Harned, Wood County Hospital's director of marketing and business development.
The North Main Street operation averages seven to 10 patients per weekday evening, and about 15 per day on the weekends, she said.
"The service is great for individuals requiring healthcare services who don't have a primary care physician, as well as those who require same day services, but are unable to be seen by their own physician," Harned stated.
Now, walk-in hours will run from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. on weekdays and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, on a first-come, first-served basis. There will be designated parking spots for those clients, with others for BGSU patients, Harned said.
