This post from Timmy Brister's blog includes additional photos and weblinks to those who are keeping us all informed in the aftermath of the tornado that ripped through Union University's campus on Tuesday night. Are you ever reminded of how small this world is in times of great distress? The aftermath of such natural disasters so often stirs up conversations of knowing someone either directly or indirectly impacted by such an event. Do continue to pray for those across all of the states that were impacted by these storms. Some areas will take years to rebuild, and all of the areas hit will require great sacrifices of financial giving. Click on the link to Timmy Brister's blog above for the address where you can send financial support to Union University if you are so led. May such an event remind us personally, and cause us to encourage others, of the great truth that God is good and works in and through events of such proportion. He is not less good because He ordains such a plan that includes seasons of great joy and peace and seasons of distress and question. He is not passive, sitting on the sidelines wondering why such events have occurred now and throughout history. He is our only hope in times of greatest need, and I pray that such difficult times will bring Him great glory as He uses both the good and the bad to draw us to Himself and deepen our awareness that He is THE only One who provides for our every need.
