Today the Emergency Preparedness Committee will meet. It has all the key departments represented. We are, of course, making our own preparations for Hurricane Florence. Safety is the priority. It is likely that we will lose power. So we will make a contingency plan for that scenario. At the Eucharist today, I will instruct the Community to download “Crisis Manager”. This will enable us to communicate with the community in the midst of disasters, such as Hurricane Florence. This will help us ensure that everyone is kept informed.

We are on the edge of this hurricane. Yesterday I sent a message to our alums who are in the direct path of the hurricane. These moments are a crucial reminder of how little control humans have over events. We trust our alums are making appropriate preparations; and we pray that God might keep them safe and support them in their endeavors.
