“We all know the church is not the building, it’s the people.” – James Spann, weatherman in Alabama, April, 2014
It was our first week in Alabama and we were under a tornado warning. Our new house does not have a basement, but my plan was to hunker down in the hall bathroom if needed. Which I did for a little while with my dog, Loretta, while my husband slept.
As usual with these kinds of weather conditions, the local channel gave weather updates all day. On the second day, it was announced that a church had been demolished. When the weather man said what he did about the church, I was pleasantly surprised. Because it is so true, yet many people don’t have this view.
Now, I always liked the weathermen in Jacksonville. In fact, one longstanding weatherman, now retired, was the father of one of my high school classmates. And a church going guy. Yet, all I ever heard from all those guys was “Mother Nature” this and “Mother Nature” that. It was refreshing to not hear it mentioned during the two day vigil last April. I’m sure it could have been, but I never heard it. Thanks, James Spann.
So, tornado or sunshine, God is the creator of all nature.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Genesis 1:1
