After the flood

It’s been a wild couple of weeks here in Nashville. Thankfully, my home was spared and I didn’t lose any of my belongings. However, the community at large is still reeling, and there is so much work to be done. I have spent almost every day of the last two weeks cleaning out flooded houses, ripping up soaked carpet, tearing out insulation, and breaking apart sheet rock. The Church as a whole in Nashville has responded in a huge way, and congregations all over the city are being the hands and feet of Jesus to neighborhoods full of people who have lost everything. The flood waters came and they went, and though they left in their path great devastation, God has also brought great hope to my hometown.
