Katrina, two years on: a reflection

David Knight was a colleague of mine in seminary - although I didn't get to know him as well as I would have liked, I always had a deep respect for him. After seminary, he returned to his home diocese of Mississippi, and more recently became rector of a church on the gulf coast. He was in the thick of it two years ago when Hurricane Katrina hit, and his church's building - and much, much else in the area - took it on the chin. He has been blogging about the effects of living with such devastation, and today, the 29th, he has written a touching reflection on his own response to those two years. Go and check it out. While you're there you can explore around a bit to get a sense of what it has been like "on the ground". And if you or your church or whoever can pitch in, why not plan to do so?
