I was thumbing through Facebook this morning and came across an article from the United Methodist Church about faith and disaster. The question was about how people of faith can respond to tragedy, and the article went on to talk about the hymn Great Is Thy Faithfulness, and it went on to cite Lamentations three, and how unexpected tragedy fell on the Hebrew people.
In the midst of the tragedy there was a lot of fist shaking, wailing and tears, but there was also a resolve that God was present and faithful…
“Certainly the faithful love of the Lord hasn’t ended, the poet writes, “certainly God’s compassion isn’t through!…Great is your faithfulness.”
Just some thoughts…
Peace and calm
