East Coast Quake

Many of you probably read about the earthquake on the East Coast.  For some, particularly those in California, there's a lot of laughter that a 5.8 isn't anything to get excited about.  However, the East Coast doesn't have the same building requirements as the West Coast, and some of the damage is fairly significant.  They were pretty lucky that it wasn't worse than it is.

The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. suffered some pretty significant damage.  You can see pictures here.  They are a self-sustaining congregation, but these repairs are going to be costly.  They are asking any who can to help - which you can do here.

Even without being able to offer funds, we can all offer prayers for a speedy recovery of a national treasure.
