It saddens me that the First Responders are not invited...so many of them lost their brothers and sisters of service. Seems there is "no room at the inn". Not enough space. Whatever. Do you think they'd find room for them if another plane came crashing down on their heads? Think they'd seek the hope and comfort of the clergy whom they sought when the world turned upside down ten years ago?
I am so grateful that our church will be honoring the men and women who serve as First Responders in our community this week. I'm glad they will set aside time to pray for them. They need our prayers. They need our support. So many face perils we cannot even imagine. Every day.
Do you know a fireman, an EMT, a police officer? If so, send them a card; thank them for their service to your community. Send them a gift certificate to Starbucks, or McDonald's. They deserve a break today, for sure. selahV
