An organist friend of mine who plays for a Roman Catholic Church in CO told me that his pastor asked him to help in the planning for an emergency prayer service in case there is a terrorist attack in Sochi. They even have the press releases all prepared to inform the public that there will be a service for peace, healing and comfort. I’m wondering why they are not meeting now to pray for safety and that no disaster occurs. As William James once said, “The world is all the richer for having a devil in it, so long as we keep our foot upon his neck.”
I’m praying that Shaun White can land that triple cork he is planning to execute. His first attempt didn’t go so well. Bring it home, Shaun.
