Verse of the Week
Click here to read the verse in context.
Lasting destruction after Hurricane Ida
Hurricane Ida made landfall in the United States on Sunday afternoon as a Category 4 storm. As of 2 September, roughly one million people in Louisiana and Mississippi are still without power, a status that could last for weeks and may cause more deaths. Some coastal neighborhoods south of New Orleans and Baton Rouge are still seriously flooded. After moving north, the storm also caused serious flooding in New York and New Jersey, which killed at least 40 people.
At least six Churches of the Nazarene have been affected by the storm, although most of the initial reports do not indicate significant damage to church buildings. One church family in Louisiana lost everything they owned to flooding.
Baton Rouge First Church of the Nazarene will act as a staging and operations center for Nazarene Disaster Response teams and supplies so they can respond to community membersâ€™ needs. Nazarene Disaster Response teams are groups of skilled volunteers positioned throughout the country to mobilize supplies or people in the wake of a disaster.
Teams from the South Texas District have already mobilized supplies, including crisis care kits, generators, and pallets of essential items and tarping equipment. Nazarene Compassionate Ministriesâ€™ partners, including Heart to Heart and Convoy of Hope, are also organizing responses ranging from food distributions to the provision of a mobile medical unit.
How You Can Help?
Please pray for those facing the devastation left by the storm across the United States, especially those who have lost loved ones and homes. Pray for those who are without power and support systems. Pray for the swift and safe delivery of supplies, including shelters, food, and medicine. Pray for those who are most vulnerable, including senior adults, individuals with disabilities, and people living in poverty. Pray for church leaders and churches responding to the needs around them. To send a prayer or note of encouragement, go to ncm.org/pray.
Churches and individuals around the world can provide support through the 2021 Storm Response Fund. Donations will be used for immediate needs, including shelter, clean water, food, and medical supplies, as well as long-term needs in the months and years ahead.

Symbols of our faith
While teaching children about world religions, a teacher asked her students to bring a symbol of their family's faith to class.
The next day, she asked each student to come forward and share the symbol with the class.
The 1st child said, "I'm Muslim, and this is my prayer rug."
The 2nd child said, "I'm Jewish, and this is my family's menorah."
The 3rd child said, "I'm Roman Catholic, and this is my Mom's rosary."
The 4th child said, "I'm Greek Orthodox, and this is an icon of my patron saint."
The 5th child said, "I'm a Baptist, and this is my casserole dish."
Just like God
My grandson was visiting one day when he asked, "Grandma, do you know how you and God are alike?"
I mentally polished my halo while I asked, "No, how are we alike?"
"You're both old," he replied.
A young couple invited their pastor for Sunday dinner. While they were in the kitchen preparing the meal, the minister asked their son what they were having.
"Goat," the little boy replied.
"Goat?" replied the Pastor, "Are you sure about that?"
"Yes," said the youngster. "I heard Dad say to Mom, 'We might as well have the old goat for dinner today as any other day."
