Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Two found guilty of terror plot in Germany. Their accomplice once planned attack on Ramstein

Two associates of a man who once planned to attack Ramstein Air Base were found guilty of charges related to a planned suicide bombing at a German town.

Kevin T., 22, was sentenced to three years and nine months in prison for supporting a foreign terrorist organization, while Amal E., 17, was sentenced to nine months of probation, Friday in a Duesseldorf court.

The full names of the defendants were not released, in keeping with German law.

The defendants were accomplices in a planned 2016 attack in Neuss, Germany, the court determined last week.

Kevin T. and Amal E. had been associates of Lorenz K., an Austrian of Albanian descent who was convicted earlier this year of plotting attacks in Neuss and at a Christmas market in Ludwigshafen.

Lorenz K. initially had considered attacking Ramstein Air Base, home to thousands of U.S. servicemembers and their families, as well as other NATO personnel. However, he backed off those plans and focused on the Neuss attack by the time he visited Kevin T. and Amal E. in November and December, court spokesman Mihael Pohar said.

Kevin T., who sympathized with the Islamic State, allowed Lorenz K. to live at his apartment in Neuss and provided him with material for a bomb, the court said. Amal E., who was 15 years old at that time, supported Lorenz K.’s plans for an attack by pledging allegiance to ISIS and by providing about 70 euros after selling her mobile phone.

Lorenz K., who was 19 at the time, was convicted in April by an Austrian court of two counts of attempted incitement to murder as a terrorist crime, as well as membership in a terrorist organization in connection with the plot in Neuss. He was sentenced to nine years in prison.
