Going Live Again Sunday March 5th

This version of the BeachReach prayer page will go live again tonight March 5th 2006. Last week we did experience some technical difficulties with SPAM robots and were forced to temporarily switch to http://beachreachalternative.blogspot.com for a couple of days. All that being said, welcome back to the main prayer page. Thank you for your prayers and all of your support.

Anyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life in him. This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives four our brothers. If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear Children let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
