02 Sep 2005 Katrina – A Wake-Up Call On Many Levels?
Posted at 16:39h in The Friday BriefOur prayers are with those who suffer on the Gulf coast from the destruction of Hurricane Katrina and those who are there to help them. While there is significant coverage of the sensational events stemming from the darker side of human nature, the larger and more important story is of the suffering of thousands who have lost everything and of the efforts of thousands more who are there to help them. Once again, we have an opportunity as to people to come together to help our fellow citizens and be an example to the world. Perhaps the greatest challenge so far has come from the Reverend Franklin Graham as he calls on churches throughout the country to invite some of those homeless into their homes and to help them get them back on their feet.
