Hoosier Musings on the Road to Emmaus

Wildfires

We have been busy here. If you read this, or this, you'll see why.

(Updates here)

Some of those quoted in the first article are my parishioners.

We've organized a community prayer service tonight in Absarokee. I'm headed over there this afternoon, taking the back ways in the hope I can get back into town. This is not guaranteed; the roads from the north (including the expressway) were closed most of the night.

The sky to the west looks, to my midwestern eyes, like a tornado sky-- almost apocalyptic.

Pray for us, please.

You need to replace the blank space (the '%20' in code) between '18' and 'derby' with a hyphen for the local-newspaper link to work.

Please pray for us.

You've got it.

Difficult for us in the UK to rasp the scale of this, but I was in Montana in a very firy summer a few years back.... remembering what it was like and praying hard.

Me too...as Mary says, we can't really imagine how it must feel, but sending love and prayers anyway.
