>I am always surprised at what dominates the headlines. It seems to me that there are things the national media picks up on and dwells on until it so saturates us with the images, that we throw our hands in the air and give up. I don’t know if it is intentional or not, but it is just how it happens.

We were shown picture after stunning picture of the human condition after hurricane Katrina. We were shown the same thing after the earthquake that devastated Haiti. But it doesn’t seem to be the same way with the floods in Nashville. All of these are tragedies that are incomprehensible. The thousands of people that were stranded in New Orleans and the amount of human death and tragedy that Haiti experienced is unfathomable. But too, Nashville is dealing with devastation, perhaps not on the level of these two other disasters but bad enough. And you can be sure that the God of the universe doesn’t care if the national media doesn’t deem it important enought to cover every night. You can be sure he doesn’t care whether or not they are poor or rich, black or white. He cares about the problems and chaos that have landed in of the lives affected by these kinds of tragedies. Through all of this mercy will prevail…

The Choir has just released this video with some amazing photos of the floods in Nashville. Please watch, and if you can help those in need.
