His Daughter Said, part 2

June 19, 2018

The plane took off at an unusually steep angle, made a very wide turn, and suddenly they were above the storm.

[Note: Friend, colleague, and unappointed mentor, The Rev. Dr. R. Paul Sims, died Sunday, June 3rd. His service was Monday, June 11. Several elements of from that time bear repeating here. For example:]

When Carol Sims told about an emergency take off from JFK Airport, on the front edge of a hurricane, she gave us an image I’ll never forget. It feels like it needs to be part of The 23rd Psalm, telling about God’s care in that most terminal moment of life

Carol said that their plane took off at an unusually steep angle, made a very wide turn, and suddenly they were above the storm.

An  unusually steep angle, a very wide turn, and suddenly above the storm…that’s also been my experience on more than one occasion. Most of them had nothing to do an aircraft. Maybe you have, too.

Carol said it very well.

Amen?
