Greater Things

"Greater Things," an interesting choice of words in a week that reminds us of the tragic events that happened on September 11, 2001. How could something so tragic remind us that "Greater things have yet to come?" Church attendance was up 25% in the five Sunday's after 9/11 (The American Church in Crisis); the county showed a renewed sense of patriotism; we remembered our fire fighters and other public servants; and we rallied to help others, but seven years later, have we forgotten? Yes, memorials have opened and others are in the works, but I still have to wonder "are greater things still to come?"

Mindi Russell, a Sacramento area chaplain and senior chaplain at the World Trade Center site after the terrorist attacks of 9/11, will be speaking at the Shore this Thursday, to both remind everyone of what happened and to share some of the great things that have come since and are still to come. Perhaps "Greater Things" are to come.
