We have gusty winds and rain from Hurricane (now Superstorm, I’m told) Sandy raging outside, but I did want to get a quick post up to let those who have inquired know that we are all fine, feisty, warm and dry. Please consider donating to a local food bank or organization serving the homeless. It’s awful out there, and the news footage is frightening.
Today’s prayer: Lord, let this storm remind us how blessed we are to have safe shelter, clean water, ample food, sturdy clothing, and a community with a robust emergency response capacity. Please guard and guide all those who are caught in harm’s way tonight, or who courageously walk into harm’s way to save others. May Your peace and comfort attend all those who fear. In the mighty name of Jesus I ask you to protect them.
