I'm not one who feels the need to share every little detail of my life in the hopes that my audience will find me so fascinating they will read everything I have to say about church communications.
That's just silly.
But it's the end of an emotionally exhausting day and more as a fellow pilgrim and follower of Jesus, I wanted to share this with you.
Last night, just before bed (I was up working later on some ministry things online), I checked my phone and found a fire had started in Santa Paula, the town next to us. I went outside and you could see the flames in the sky. Scary, but when I turned around my heart started beating audibly.
In the other direction, at the other end of town was an equally red explosion of fire. From miles to the east, to as far as I could see to the west was fire.
Then the power went out. Then the phones went dead.
