Jesus is Walking in Mississippi

If you haven’t connected with this wonderful blog, please go and visit Hurricane Katrina–Mississippi Response. A pastor and a lawyer from Gulfport are posting stories and some pictures that will give you a sense of what is really happening in that city, devastated materially but not spiritually. I borrowed one of their stories for my sermon this morning and have been looking eagerly for their updates the past few days.

God bless the people on the ground, acting as the hands and feet of Christ.

“Christ has no body now on earth but yours, no hands but yours, no feet but yours, yours are the eyes through which to look at Christ’s compassion to the world, yours are the feet with which he is to go about doing good, and yours are the hands with which he is to bless us now.” St. Teresa of Avila
