With one of the worst storms hitting the area today, we've made the decision to cancel the service. The roads are bad, the sidewalks worse, and the risk to life and limb is too great. "For the love of God, stay home, stay warm, stay safe." I'm thinking of the story of Noah -- a great story to read on a day like this when our lives and our homes are being affected by the raging weather. (Read it if you wish -- Genesis chapter 6 and following). When we're hunkered down against the storms, it's good to remember that nothing -- least of all floods and freezing rain -- can separate us from the love of God. Perhaps use this time this morning to reach out and call a friend or a family member as reminder of that truth.
