A man falls prostrate on the carpeted church aisle, his body convulsing as he is wracked with sobs. Next to him, a woman sits, her head tilted back, tears streaming down her face. Across the sanctuary, a mother leans forward in a pew and weeps, impervious to her daughter playing with a doll at her side.It is revival night at the Rock Church of Baltimore, and the spirit is in the house.For the past two years, people have been coming to this church on a hill in Towson to experience what worshipers describe as a profound presence of God, an experience accompanied by fits of weeping and falling to the floor.

One Friday night each month, the sanctuary of Grace Episcopal Church in Elkridge is converted from a house of prayer to a disco club. The hymnals are neatly tucked away and the floor is cleared, making room for a crowd of energetic middle-schoolers to dance.It's becoming a trend in suburbia -- young people hustling to neighborhood churches and community centers to listen and dance to their favorite music, including songs that were hits long before most of them were born.The pupils are escorted by their parents, some of whom are active members in the organization that plans the dances: the Greater Elkridge Teen Association.

Rick Kuhn never learned to juggle until he took over as athletic director at Rock Church Academy.Now, he can keep three hats spinning in the air all at once -- athletic director, boys basketball coach and girls basketball coach.Assuming such a load seems a daunting task, but Kuhn never balked, even though he had just completed chemotherapy treatments for hepatitis C a few months before. Now in remission from the serious liver disease, Kuhn sees his hands-on approach to Victors basketball as the first step toward eventually competing with the Metro area's better teams.

Buried 468 pages into a federal bill that would erect a missile system to defend Americans against nuclear attack is a column of legalese dubbed Amendment 2442.But the amendment has little to do with national security. It has more to do with a neighborhood squabble in the working-class Southeast Baltimore community of St. Helena.When the amendment was approved last week by the U.S. Senate, the people of St. Helena found they could play winning politics all the way up to Capitol Hill.The prize: a potential turning point in their battle against a Baltimore County church's plan for a drug and alcohol treatment center serving homeless men at the former Fort Holabird.
