On Wednesday afternoon, the day after the full ravage of Hurricane Sandy became quickly evident, my almost 6-year-old twin sons each clutched one of my hands as we walked more than half a mile toward the one remaining functioning pier in Hoboken.

Hope In The Midst Of Storms

It is easy and natural and human to be frightened. It's not a sin to be frightened. Listening to the rising wind outside my own window is not the most comforting thing in the world. But there are resources for those who fear.

Creator God, we ask you to calm the wind and the waves of the approaching hurricane, and spare those in its path from harm. Help those who are in its way to reach safety.
