Hurricane Harvey has wreaked its havoc in Houston and surrounding area and finally left the Texas coast as it heads in a northeasterly direction. No longer labeled “Harvey” it moves as heavy rains and wind. We live in an imperfect world or as Richard Rohr writes “The Gospel accepts that life is tragic, but it graciously adds that we can survive and will even grow from this tragedy. This is the great turnaround! It all depends on whether we are willing to see down as up and learn to draw upon the Infinite Source.” (Richard Rohr’s Daily Meditation – Cosmic Forgiveness, 9/1/2017)
Death, injury, loss of home and property all add to the notion of life as tragic. Our prayers have been with known and unknown sisters and brothers in Texas during this tragedy and we also have an opportunity to help financially. Please be generous.
