Like many of you I've been watching the news with growing concern. I've heard the speeches, read the papers and I've seen the status of Facebook friends expressing utter panic and outrage. I don't share the anger partly because as distressing as this catastrophe is, I know that accidents happen, even when precautions are taken. It's unfortunate that none of the plans to stop the spill have worked, however, I also know that ultimately God is in control. That doesn't mean that I don't realize that we will likely feel the repercussions of this disaster for years to come, both environmentally and financially and let's not forget that there were lives lost when this oil rig exploded. It is indeed a terrible, terrible tragedy but pointing fingers doesn't help the crisis. Today I read an article that that addressed this issue that I thought was very well written. I hope that you'll take a minute to read what Lori has to say in Nature Studies, Oil Spills, and Romans 8.
What are your thoughts on the oil spill?
