St Peter by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in Gulfport, Mississippi, USA

Hallo again to all.

Update on 1 September 2005: we share the world's sadness at the destruction to the USA Gulf coast and the city of New Orleans. Serious urban flooding, such as that in July in Mumbai and that in August in New Orleans and Mississippi, is to us a nearly unimaginable disaster. We offer our prayers this week for everyone whose lives have been disrupted or ended by these disasters and so many others.

Tonight we were writing a letter for this front page of Anglicans Online about ... well, it doesn't matter. It didn't seem right to continue with that, whilst meteorological destruction bears down on the southern gulf coast of the United States.

Pray for the people of New Orleans, Louisiana, USA and all those in the path of this deadly hurricane called Katrina.

From lightning and tempest;
from plague, pestilence, and famine;
from battle and murder, and from sudden death,
Good Lord, deliver us.

See you next week.
