If God calls, will YOU go?

15 Sep

As I write in my blog this morning, I am wearing my EBC Disaster Relief tshirt. NOT because I am writing about it . . . It just so happens that is the shirt I will wear to the Y in a few minutes. But the shirt reminds me of three years ago when we went to Gulfport in the wake of Katrina. I referenced that trip in my sermon yesterday and commented that it was a horrible trip and a great one. Horrible, because of the devastation and hurt that we saw in the eyes of Gulf Coast residents as they watched all they knew to be security and “home” ripped away.

The great part of the trip was the relationship-building that happened between our crew. Tom Boan has been a friend of mine since we moved to Florence 13 years ago, but nothing will replace the time we spent in his van. It was fun.

Today, another hurricane has devastated and the destination is a little farther than Mississippi. BUT once again people are hurting. Will we be a one-disaster church, or are we up to the task?? If God calls, will YOU go?
