A traumatic Sunday

The Christchurch earthquake drained all of us, especially those with close links. Over 90% of the Scots congregation has such links. Meaning in disaster, comfort in loss, and deep reassurance are sought. Is nature “ruthless”? Is it out to “get” us? I think not.
The readings from the sermon on the mount provided a powerful challenge. How do we read “Do not worry!” in the light of the weeks events, and indeed in any times of trouble.
I have tried to respond honestly, but even having written, uttered and had affirmation for what was offered it still feels inadequate, so multi-faceted is the whole disaster.
Go in peace
Alistair
