Transylvania, where we live these days, has an especially distinguished history of religious toleration. Toleration, mind you, is not equality or separation-of-church-and-state or anything else quite so modern. Catch us in an unguarded moment for some rueful commentary. But the tradition is long and noble nonetheless.
All of which is just a preface to this story, posted at the parish orange-crate, about a little town with a little church and a little bell. And a prayer for peace among people of faith.
