When massive storms dump snow accumulations taller than the average person, all of that snowmelt has to go somewhere. Officials in Buffalo, N.Y., anticipate potential floodwaters following the seven feet of snow that fell on some parts of the city through Nov. 21.
Cities across the Northeast are facing similar flood scenarios and the prospect of even more snow. The polar blast, generated by a pacific storm that curved north into the Arctic pushing a cold front, brought freezing temperatures and snowfall to parts of all 48 contiguous states. The New York snow event has also been responsible for 12 weather-related fatalities.

When Arsenia Ivanov came to the end of her freshman year at Washington State University (WSU) she had a choice. The first generation Russian-American had little background in Christianity before attending Resonate Church on WSU’s Pullman, Wash., campus. As summer approached she could either go home—away from her newly discovered spiritual support system—or join her Resonate friends for a high-commitment summer missional adventure in San Diego called Elevate.

things in the U.S. Army. He learned to make his bed Army-style. He learned to

The odds appeared steep in 2010 when Jeff Phillips and his family moved to Vancouver, B.C., to start a church. A youth minister for a decade and a half, he’d never been a lead pastor or a church planter. Both native Texans, Jeff and his wife, Sara, were taking their family to one of the most post-Christian, multi-ethnic cities in North America.
