It is another week and soon to be two weeks since the attack. A survey says that 7 out of 10 Americans are depressed but I think that we are not so much depressed as we are anxious. We are anxious about what is going to happen next whether something the terrorists do or something we do in the way of military action. Of course watching or reading the stories of the families torn apart by this disaster still bring the tears to our eyes and probably will for some time. A tailor in New York City after the death of John F. Kennedy posted a sign in the window of his shop which read, "Closed Due To Death In The Family." We have all had a death in the family. A death in our American family. As many nations of the world have been affected by this so has every state of the United States. There were people from Oklahoma who were killed in this attack and many who know that it was only by the grace of God that they were spared.

Yesterday was a good Sunday. A time with God is always healing. Sunday morning I talked about Facing our Fears and Sunday evening I talked about what the followers of Islam believe. Attendance was still down but we have several still gone because of illness or travel.

We wonder what is ahead for this week but know that God will carry us through whatever may be ahead. In God We Trust!!
