Hurricane Sandy has completely decimated many communities all along the East Coast. Widespread damage has leveled whole cities, towns and villages in Pennsylvania and our nearby states of Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey and New York. While other neighborhoods were not hit as hard, there are still large areas without electricity or clean water. Alan Miller, […]

[On Not Loving the World] Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in them. For everything in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—comes not from the Father but from the world. — 1 John 2:15-16 (NIV)
