I read this as I prepared for Hurricane Sandy. Of course all the talk on TV is about preparation, about keeping our fear at bay. Now, I understanding that public officials and the media have to keep us prepared for the worst. Perhaps it is their way of keeping us safe. In their world they can’t talk about the majesty of nature.
However, as I venture into the mystery of faith, I realize that it is through God’s on-going creation of land, sea and sky, moon and sun, and night and day that I have the best chance of being humble.
