    Hello Kathleen, I came upon your article by an inquiry on the internet. I have been toying with the idea of selling my condo here in Va. and moving to ocean city. But the threats of climate change are scaring me. (The damage of superstorm Sandy was horrendous in N.J.) I am wondering about such a super storm hitting oc and what would happen and especially if I were to purchase a condo (such as in the condo, “Escape” in n. oc) and would it get destroyed. And, if it were destroyed, would the insurance pay for to rebuild? Any way, once that I saw that you worked for Alexandria schools as a paraprofessional, I wanted to write to you! I sub for Alexandria schools, especially in preschool and sped. Hope to hear from you! Sincerely, Barbara Weber

      Hello Barbara:
      Thank you for your kind note. I hope that you like the article that I wrote. The threats of climate change are truly daunting (like the damage in NJ due to Super storm Sandy, Long Island was hit pretty hard as well). There are always the possibility of part of a super storm hitting and damaging parts of Ocean City or any area that would be in the storm’s path. It would be a risk that the you or any potential buyer would have to take when considering purchasing in that particular area and keeping in mind that the closer to the water you are more at risk that there would be to damage (total or partial) to the condo or home. My suggestion to you would be that if you were to find a condo to that you really loved and knew that it was the right one, I would schedule an appointment right way with a trusted and reputable insurance agent to go over insurance coverage that would not only include the basics for theft, loss and damage but to also include a super storm package that would include wind and flood damages as well as being priced accordingly for the increased risk of potential loss. This would have to include not only any potential super storm, but any severe storm that could arise. The premiums you would have to pay would be a little bit higher than a non-super storm area but to have such a policy would be advantageous to have (and for peace of mind for the owner as well). You’d be able to rebuild, with help from your insurance company, and of course any assistance that either federal or state government would offer as well. But like I said, it would all have to be discussed with your insurance agent to make sure you get everything you need in the policy and any rider to the policy that would cover any and all contingencies (just in case).
      Of course, having a good “team “ in place if a severe enough storm were to hit the area is a plus so that things would progress smoothly the damage could be assessed in quick order, and start the process of rebuilding/renovating, while getting the basics for daily living while taking care of everything else.
      I hope that you enjoy being a sub in ACPS. I never had the opportunity to with preschool, but worked a great deal in special education with students that had a specific learning disability (SLD). Once you made the move to Ocean City and got settled, you could apply to the school system there if you desired to continue in that line of work (just a suggestion).
      I hope that this has been of assistance to you. Any time.
      Sincerely yours.
      Kathleen Kiefer

    Thank you for writing this research on mystikos and the early church. There is something about 3. Could it be that we can have a closer union with the Trinity through 1) biblical readings, 2) prayers, and 3) experiences of participating in such practices as the Eucharist?
