Series: After the Storm

After the Storm square.jpg

September 17 through September 24, 2017

On Sunday, September 10th, Hurricane Irma rolled through Plantation. We were spared the worst of the storm, but it ravaged our friends in the Caribbean, the Keys, and West Florida. This came quickly on the heels of Hurricane Harvey, which devastated East Texas. In this 2-week series, we look at our response to the storm through the lens of two passages. First, the words of the Prophet Micah 6:6-8. Second, the Three General Rules offered by John Wesley, the 18th century priest who launched the movement that became the United Methodist Church.
