Saying Nothing Says a Lot

David Crosby pens “Six things not to say to a New Orleans survivor” for the Houston Chronicle.

I like this part:

Maybe God aimed Katrina at New Orleans. Maybe the Devil did it. Maybe it was highs and lows and prevailing winds and water temperatures in the Gulf. But one thing is for sure — you don't know. So don't tell me you do. I don't want to hear it.
And that’s coming from the pastor of First Baptist Church in New Orleans.

Can I get an Amen?

I worked on their new church project a few years back, and I found Dr Crosby to be completely practical and logical at every meeting. This is not at all typical. Usually pastors are dreamers and idealists, but Dr. Crosby is a pragmatic leader who serves his congregation well.

Peace,
