    2020 has been a year of an unusual number of hurricanes, many have hit the USA. When a storm hits, lives are changed. We like to believe we will 'get over it' or 'get on with it', but storms have an impact, whether it is a weather type of storm OR a personal storm.

    Candidly, every time there is an event like this, many want to characterize it in unbiblical ways. After Katrina, I recall the extreme views made public. On the one hand, some were getting on TV speaking of how God could have nothing to do with events like this, at the same time, others came more

But never miss this critical part. • He didn’t just more
