Some might wonder why not much has been said on this blog concerning the hurricane. At this early moment, not much can be said except, help how you can, and pray that the people of the Gulf Coast may know true Peace, which is not the peace of material possessions or comforts. It may be trite, but I’ve always kind of appreciated the bumper sticker, “No Jesus, no peace; know Jesus, know peace.” And read Pastor Matthew Harrison’s press release on behalf of LCMS World Relief, via Bunnie Diehl.

I think it is premature to make extensive comment, but perhaps BsA readers would offer their comments on the perennial theodicy question. (Hint: slightly facetious question. Theodicy is never the correct answer!)
