The tragic events in Haiti are almost beyond comprehension. As you likely know, Haiti has likely lost over 100,000 lives, thousands of buildings, and its sense of security. Most of us are wondering what we can do. First, we must pray for them. Now is not the time to wonder “why?” Now is the time to act. Brian McLaren pointed me (via his blog) to the Bread For the World website that has a list of ways to help, organizations to contact, and prayers for the occasion.
Hopefully, everyone (regardless of race, creed, etc…) can gather together and weather the storm. Although the damage has been done, our reaction to tragedy is paramount to its lasing effects. After some time has passed, people may start to wonder “why?” all this happened–although the comment of a certain politician was incredibly rude, inappropriate, and wrong. This post is not meant to approach the theodicy question, but is a call to action and nudge in (what I think is) the right direction.
Blessings and Peace to all of you, and may God be with the people of Haiti.
