On September 11th, I was in Houston, TX working as a youth minister for a church in the Clear Lake area. Before I left for the office that day I heard about the first tower being on fire and billowing smoke. As I was driving to work (a less than 5 minute commute) I heard that a plane had flown into that tower. By the time I reached work nothing had changed. I went to my office thinking someone made a flying mistake and everything would be okay. Then I was alerted that a second plane had hit the second tower and at this point I couldn't leave the news. September 11, 2001 changed the life of our entire country and in some ways our entire world. I'm not sure we have yet to come to grips fully with the devestation. The day will forever be etched in my mind. Tomorrow I will take different times during the day for silence and prayer. Prayer for families, our country, forgiveness, comfort, and peace. My we never forget, not so we can harbor hate, but so we can build the virtue of grace.
I like to explore different things about theology and the life of the church. You might also find things here about me and my family.
God Is... -God is... is a book that takes a look at Genesis and portrays six true images of God. There are many ways we think about God that are unhealthy and even destructive. These six images help turn our attention to who God really is and how we might follow him more closely. Click the Lulu button below to download your copy!
