Pray for Houston

As all of us are thinking and praying about our brothers and sisters in Houston, the turmoil and exhaustion that has poured down on them will take a long time to recover from. But our generous prayer, gifts and volunteering support will help ease the burden.

Here are a few links where you can help:

Samaritan's Purse

World Vision Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief

And below is a poem that Steven Lufkin wrote, as he thought on Houston's overwhelming storm:

Fall fifty inches    
Fall down 
You may bury our families
And bury this town 
But you could never 
Send enough water 
To wash the faith 
Inside of me out

Fall fifty inches 
Fall down 
You may steal everything 
Yesterday held 
But the sky could never bleed
So long that It drowns 
This faith 
Inside of me out

Fall fifty inches 
Fall down 
Decorate every street
With a flood on the ground
But the tragedy you bring 
Will never have the strength 
To tear this faith 
Inside of me out

Fall fifty inches
Fall down 
You may ransack our 
Comfortable places and howl at the moon 
But you know, 
Theres a faith in my heart 
Giving me light when everything's dark 

Fall fifty inches
Fall down 
Lying within a stadium of sounds
Echoing voices, people all around
I look to the face 
I look to the crown

Peace,

David
