Living with hope
A reflection from Deacon Sylvie
People in many parts of the country are still reeling from the devastation to their homes left behind by floodwater – some are in danger of losing all hope in the future, and need our prayers.
One night at a dinner, a man related the tale of a small town which was about to be deliberately flooded. It was becoming part of a large lake for which a dam would be built. In the months before it was flooded, all improvements and repairs in that town were stopped. After all, what was the use of painting a house if it were to be covered in water in six months? Why repair anything when the town was about to be overwhelmed?
