Moral Contradictions

Friday, September 02, 2005

In all of this...

...these kind of op-eds are the last thing we need. However, I'm sure the themes expressed are currently popular: how could God allow such a tragedy? Where is he now?

I pray that as we and others question our faith and cope with this disaster, in the end our faith will be strengthened and will act in His name to provide comfort and relief. I pray that as some may feel God has abandoned them that we as the Church will provide shelter, food, and care to demonstrate that they're loss of faith is unfounded.

This is a dark time - more than ever our world needs the light of Christ's mercy and love demonstrated through our faith and actions.

  • Nathan, the church were I am the Administrator became a 24/7 Red Cross Shelter as of 1am this morning. I am so in awe of the generosity of the people here in Houston. Within a matter of hours we had food, bedding, clothes, healthcare, transportation to showers, money.. and the help is still streaming in. I can't even begin to tell you how great our God is. We've even witnessed familes brought back together after days of not knowing where their loved ones are. But we've also experienced tragic news as well. Tears have been shed. Continue to pray for us. We are exhausted and this is just the first day of many. The need is so great yet our God is able.

  • Wow - that's awesome Marty. I pray that God continues to work through you all and that in the midst of this, you all can get a little bit of sleep. :) Godspeed.
