This week I would like to welcome the Rev. Richard Albarano to the In Theory writer?s board. Father Albarano is pastor of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Burbank.

Micheline "Micha" Abounassar, 29, has in the last 24 years received a lot of attention for her artwork. Her paintings have been shown to cardinals and priests, sheriffs, mayors, politicians and even the pope. Her art has traveled from Jerusalem to Rome.
