OMG!  I just woke to this news via clock radio.  Seems the whole coastal world is under a tsunami warning.

May the Lord have mercy on and preserve everyone who is in danger!

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

It is not the task of Christianity to provide easy answers to every question, but to make us progressively aware of a mystery. God is not so much the object of our knowledge as the cause of our wonder.

News: Mitch sent a note saying that he was okay, but that the violent shaking was awful. He is an American Orthodox Christian living in Japan.

He asks for prayers for Japanese Orthodox Christians, their churches, and their cathedrals.

Lord have mercy on the Japanese people and save them.
