NEW ORLEANS & CRISIS OF FAITH

What crises of faith have been confronted and internalized over the past week in and around New Orleans? Some have surely cursed God--"why have you done this to us?"--and those who failed to act quickly--"where were you in our desperation?" Some have surely blessed God for having survived Katrina with body and soul intact. Others, on the outside looking in, face a faith crisis of another kind: "why didn't we--or those who represent us--do more sooner?" From the torrent, all have experienced incredible pain. All have lost; some have found. There is despair and resignation; there is hope and heroism. There is resentment and regret; there is gratitude and grace. Let there be, in the days to come, healing for all.

  2. You have a knack for
    writing. I read about 20
    blogs a day, and skim about
    30 more, so I mean it! We
    can all use improvement, but
    you certainly are better than
    most I've read.

    I'm going to be starting a blog
    soon, about reciprocal links
    (I know, it sounds strange!) but
    if you don't mind, I might drop
    you a line just to get a little advice.
    Ok?

    Thanks kindly.

  4. Net blogs for retail pull 'em in, boost sales
    The online retail industry is seeing opportunity in the blog boom. Retailers are creating blogs - a term derived from Web logs, or online musings - to promote brand awareness and sales.

  5. Clearly, these previous commenters don't get it. They are "users" in the worst sense of the word.

    Hey, guys and gals: when you've used good people and well-intended resources all you can to make yourself monitarily successful and have found yourself still anxious and empty, come back and talk. I'll be here.

  7. Why not ask: Why did they live there? They knew it would happen some day, right?
    What I'm trying to say is that we can not look at this world through our eyes but through the eyes of God. When we put what we belive is right above all else, we should expect God to respond whether we were right or wrong.
