Prayer for all victims of natural disasters
It is always a call to prayer when we hear of our sisters and brothers in Christ under threat from natural phenomena. We think of the eathquakes in New Zealand and not so long ago the devastating bushfires that took 173 lives here. These disasters remind us of the frailty of all flesh and our constant need to rely on God as our creator, saviour and comforter.
May the Lord be with those in the path of the hurricane.

You lightning and clouds, bless the Lord
The Benedicite Omnia Opera is one of my favorite pieces of choral music to sing; setting by Leo Sowerby. This week has been hard for millions of people here in the US. The piece by Sowerby is multi-layered, a display of joy upon gladness... and thoroughly appropriate for this latest disaster.
