Bad News

June 20, 2007


After a huge fire in Philly, the newer of the two main simple way houses is gone, gone, gone. Unfortunately, this is the place that housed their after-school programs and several of their small businesses, and the two folks who lived there lost all of their possessions. Oh, man. At least everyone is okay.

I’m trying to pray for my friends there, and even more for the people of the neighborhood (many of whom lost their homes and cars), but it’s pretty disheartening when all of the news reports make mention of the way that this tragedy affected today’s commute. I’m sure everyone in Kensington is very sorry for the inconvenience.
