Quake alert: God trying to tell you something?
It was interesting on Sunday to get feedbook from friends and family about the earthquakes … two earthquakes … that literally shook us up on Saturday.
One of my relatives had me laughing. She said during the first quake, she thought she imagined that the bed was moving. Then she realized that she wasn’t imagining it. She said she knew she didn’t believe in “haints” — ghosts — so it wasn’t an unruly spirit. Then she thought maybe God was trying to get her attention. She never imagined it to be what it was – an earthquake.
I know that most of us Oklahomans talked about the earthquake on Sunday and I bet the conversations were particularly lively at church.
I’d like to get some reader feedback on this issue:.
Did you think the earthquakes were a sign from God? Did you have someone tell you that’s their opinion of the quakes?
Hey, here’s an opportunity to tell on your pastor, so to speak. Did he or she bring up the earthquakes in his or her sermon/homily on Sunday? … either in jest or in earnest?
If you are a preacher/spiritual leader, did you incorporate the earthquakes into your sermon/homily on Sunday? If not in the sermon or homily, did you speak about the quakes to your congregation? If so, what did you say?
Let me know.
E-mail me your opinions/responses to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your name, city, faith/denomination affiliation and a daytime phone number. Your comments might be used for an upcoming story in The Oklahoman.
