"There is an intellectual desire, an eros of the mind. Without it there would arise no questioning, no inquiry, no wonder." Bernard Lonergan

"It seems clear that humans cannot significantly reduce or mitigate the dangers inherent in their use of life by ccumulating more information or better theories or by achieving greater predictability or more caution in their scientific and industrial work. To treat life as less than a miracle is to give up on it." Wendell Berry

"Do not be afraid, my little flock, for it is the Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." Luke 12:32

Pray for and GIVE to Louisiana

Friends near and far. Take a moment to ‪#‎PrayForLouisiana‬. And then take a moment to give something. It is that important. In a four day period the place I call home received 6 trillion gallons of rain. My grandmothers land, which has never flooded, has all back flooded from water that fell miles and miles and miles away. Her home will be spared, but many of her neighbors will not. This is all unprecedented. Thus, requires an unprecedented response: much like Floyd in 1999.
At my church, White Memorial Presbyterian Church, we are collecting funds for Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. You may make a donation to WMPC and tag your gift for Louisiana Flood. Next week we are having a meeting to decide how next to respond - collections, work teams, other means of aid.
Please do what you can to be part of the recovery. Please join me prayer for good people who literally had the Gulf of Mexico dropped upon them from the sky.
God bless you as you do your part.
