MANY PEOPLE praise the Lord with prayer and exhortation; Wilbur Mack did it with his voice. That powerful bass-baritone reached the roof of the Grace Baptist Church of Germantown, and thrilled the parishioners gathered in their pews for Sunday worship for more than 50 years. "He loved praising God with his voice," his family said. Wilbur E. Mack, a trustee emeritus of Grace Baptist, a longtime federal government executive, Army veteran of World War II, and devoted family man, died July 30. He was 92. He was born in Greenville, S.C., and even as a war veteran had to endure the pervasive racism of the segregated South.

I don't have to be at work until 10 a.m. and I don't head home until 6. These hours suit me perfectly. I make believe I'm not part of the rat race so evident in early morning traffic (although traffic here is a pitiable stream compared to the full force of the Philadelphia flow). On the way to work the morning sun is on my right; on the way home I have a lovely view of the Carolina foothills silhouetted by the light of the sinking sun. They promise secrets that the town in which I now live couldn't possibly hope to provide.

The unholy union of politics and media has bestowed on Bob Jones University its 15 minutes of national infamy - its first dose since the mid-'70s, when it lost federal funding over the same issue that besmirches it today: racial inequity. Between then and now, we residents of Greenville, S.C., have been living out an uncertain destiny. Secreted away from media glitz, we have been vacillating ambivalently between pretensions of New South renaissance (wedged halfway between Atlanta and Charlotte)

At St. Joseph's University, an exhibit called "Jesuit Spirit in the Arts 1986" celebrates the recent inauguration of the school's president, the Rev. Nicholas S. Rashford. It also serves to mark the 255th anniversary of the Jesuit presence in this city. Featured are works of 56 faculty members (including 10 Jesuits) from 19 of the nation's 28 Jesuit-operated colleges and universities. Mention the Jesuit spirit in the arts, and we quite naturally think of the baroque period and the cultural manifestoes of the counter-reformation, when Jesuits encouraged the commissioning of many masterworks of religious sculpture, painting, architecture and music.
