29 Aug Tugboat – Helping Others
At a bus stop in Baltimore, MD. A lady waits for her husband to get off the metro bus. A warm hug on a crisp day, and they walk hand in hand.
Driving past a school, some of rooms are still lighted on this early summer night. Inside these rooms are handmade artworks: pictures of horses, dogs, and stick figure families. The children that drew these scenes have left school for the day, happily running behind mothers with strollers and younger siblings. Home to warm dry houses, lighted windows, and dinner around nice tables.
Several States away, we find a different scene. Hurricane Harvey has brought devastation. Homes are flooded. Power is out.People are displaced. Lives have been disrupted. We are compelled to help. We have all seen and read about the stories in the news, the need is great.
The Bible tells us in Romans 12:13 NLT “When God’s people are in need, be ready to help them.” There are many ways to help: the Red Cross, Salvation Army, Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund and you can even donate on iTunes. But mostly you need to understand that the time to help is now.
Just want all of you there in Texas to know that we are with you in thoughts and in prayers.
We love you, God Bless you.
Pastors Willie and Rochelle
