Flooding Drowns Homes and Churches
(from Urban Christian News)
Redwood United Methodist Church Pastor Barbara Hite on Sunday urged her congregation to hold tight to their faith as floodwaters crept near the tiny, white church at the end of a winding road.
Members -- many of them from the Eagle Lake retirement community evacuated more than a week ago -- shared their stories during Sunday School. Some are living with relatives; others in hotels. The church's parsonage is a temporary home for six church members who had been searching for higher ground.
"It's not really home," said 16-year-old Anthony Genereaux, who's living at the parsonage a mile up the road. "But I feel connected to God."
