overwhelming global tragedies

in South Asia and Central America. Episcopal Relief and Development is responding to both of them. As much aid as will pour in there, it will be too late for some. I cannot comprehend the numbers of dead and displaced. May God have mercy on those in harm's way, and on those souls who have already lost their lives.

Isn't it awful? I hate seeing all the crumbled rubble, the refuse of people's lives. Here we are still dealing with huge disasters elsewhere in the world--and already overwhelmed with need--and now we are needed again.

Just seems like there are too many big tragedies at one time. Makes the heart so very sad for those affected.
It seems as though our prayer list grows longer and longer - and God hears them all.

Amen to your prayer, Emily.
I'm wondering, too, in a year of so many huge natural disasters, if there are things to be learned about our relationship with the planet...it feels that way for me, certainly.
