The 9.11 attack upon the United States of America has dramatically
impacted not only those directly affected by the events but the entire community
The Lord has graciously allowed me the privilege and the sorrow to
volunteer my time at ground zero for three days during the first week
following the collapse of the World Trade Center and to work with those
in need of grief counseling.
During the early days of this war against freedom, Iíve written
some thoughts and observations from my time at ground zero and some
subsequent thoughts on the Christianís response to this war on terror.
I pray this section will be a blessing to you all.
These are some of my thoughts and observations Iíve jotted
down from my experiences at ground zero. These are unedited for
they represent my gut emotions and initial thoughts at that time.
As a result, they are a bit incoherent at times, sketchy and
disjointed. Iíve decided to leave this ďas isĒ for they
reflected my state of mind at the time.
Wake Up Call
This is a letter the Lord put on my heart to write Monday,
September 17, 2001. I sent this to the letters to the editor
section of many national and local newspapers, government
ministries and churches, cable and network news outlets,
Christians via email, internet chat rooms and discussion boards. I
was ďshockedĒ at the response this received. Pray for America.
Iíve included some of the better links that people have
emailed me concerning how those around the world have responded to
the attack on America. Itís links like these that show the best
of Godís creation.
This is a list of photoís from a number of different
sources. Some were sent to me by the photographerís and some
have become public domain. Iím just now getting around to
posting the photos. It still seems so surreal and
distant, like an recurrent nightmare about an imaginary place so
far away. But now 1 year has passed, NY is home and the
persistent tears remind me how real it is.
We've included a few articles sent to us from Christians in
Great Britain concerning their perspective on 911. These articles
do not necessarily reflect our view of events but does offer a
non-American Christian perspective. We also posted artwork and
prints distributed to the participants at the memorial service at
ground zero, and included some general thoughts from our founder
who was invited to attend the memorial service.
