We can help.

On Friday, a series of tornadoes came through Southwest Ohio.  A small village about 15 miles south of where I grew up was severely damaged.  Many homes have been lost.

Our church served as a  "headquarters" of sorts where residents could drop off items to donate to the victims over the weekend. 

I'm sad and thankful and proud of my community all at once.  

People are so kind.  The world is still beautiful and interesting.  

When bad things happen, it often seems people on the outskirts jump at the chance to be weepy and needy and overly dramatic when THEY weren't the ones directly effected.   Suddenly, everyone's neighbors' best friend's cousin's dog was involved and everybody wants the credit and attention for it.  

This is especially true on Facebook.  

While I don't want to send that message. 

 I don't personally know anyone who was affected.   

I just want to encourage people to reach out.  

Here are some relevant links.     

To those whom much has been given, much is expected.  Luke 12:48 

Love & Humility,
