God Did Not Send Irma

Since writing this post a few days ago, I’ve heard someone say that God sent Irma to teach us humility.

No.

Not even a little.

We are right to pray that in the midst of tragedy, we might find our strength in God.

But God does not send hurricanes to make us see that need.

Not even a little.

We did a prayer and action vigil at church tonight.  You can download the liturgy here.  (Gathering prayer and litany written by Karl Jones, regional UCC Disaster Coordinator).
