  1. Enduring a tornado strike, is a most frightening thing. I am up to 8 at this point, and I do pray they remembered the promises of their Lord & Savior when this occurred! We should rejoice in the fact no one was harmed! My prayers go with those who were there, who may have been frightened, or harmed in any way. His eye is truly on the sparrow!

  2. Makes me wonder if tornadoes struck the Twin Cities area because the E?CA decided to defy God’s clear and inerrant word regarding sodomy, or because Brett Faver *finally* decided to come to the Vikings. 🙁

    Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison.

    And tell all your E?CA friends to get out of the E?CA, fast, to save their souls. Their eternal salvation is clearly at stake.

  3. The pastor/speaker at the time the tornado was announced actually made a comment that he hoped the tornado wasn’t a message from God on the topic being discussed. Followed by much nervous laughter.

  4. Paul,
    Well said, people think & God steers, (auf englisch). Steer or LOVINGLY teach? We are faithless & cowardly creatures, we BEND to this world & it’s prince, for the sake of what? That “what” is “success” to the world, how different is what our Lord weighs as success, sadly, the die is now cast.
