A recent letter to the Morning Sentinel, by the Rev. Bill Cripe, reminded readers about a time when the main article on Saturday’s religion page was written by the leaders of local churches, like Cripe.

Now, instead of Maine issues, we find syndicated essays about what’s happening in Alabama or California or, in one instance, Austria.

It would be nice if the Sentinel went back to its former practice of publishing essays by local pastors and priests, rabbis and ministers, about topics of concern and interest to their Maine parishioners.
