Hurricane Harvey caused massive destruction in Houston this week. Some of that destruction was physical and obvious. But some of that destruction was spiritual and emotional. As a church, we have organized significant efforts so far to help our neighbors start to put their homes back in order.
But even now, we need to begin processing our collective trauma, both spiritually and emotionally. We need to connect with God, for our own sake and also for our neighbors. This week during our worship service, we did exactly that, with an extended time of prayer and a reminder of who God is.
Our main text this week was Luke 8:42b-48.
