In a few hours we will arise and drive to the coast for a weekend family camp with our church. I have to admit that it will be nice to be away from the television, radio, and Internet. I’m overwhelmed and exhausted by the amount of trauma that we’ve witnessed over the last several days knowing what we see and hear is only a fraction of what is happening. I feel helpless. All I can do is pray and encourage my brothers and sisters here at home to consider as others are doing the possibility of partnering with a church in the south. Even if it is as simple as giving of our money with the hopes of helping rebuild a church community in need.
