The earthquake in Haiti.
The Luther Seminary community paused at 3:45 this afternoon for a brief time of song, prayer, and to hear the bells toll for 35 seconds, reminding us of those who died and the rebuilding still happening.
I remember talking about it at work that day last year.  The following day, as we were continually swallowed by news reports on the devastation and climbing death toll, I recall the stewardship board allotting immediate funds to go towards the relief effort.  I remember driving to the Cities to attend a prayer service organized by Ben Larson’s friends and classmates from Luther.  I came back to Dawson to write a sermon.  I remember preaching, praying, and hugging that Sunday.
Today I’m remembering and I’m praying.  
I’m hoping you’ll do the same.
