Presiding Bishop comments on Hurricane Gustav

[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori issued the following message on the evening of September 1 after Hurricane Gustav made landfall earlier in the day near Cocodrie, Louisiana, southwest of New Orleans.

We give thanks that damage from Hurricane Gustav has not been worse, and we continue to hold the people of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas in our prayers as they await the end of this storm. May all those affected know the companioning presence of God through the active concern and involvement of others near and far away. We pray that the light of dawn may bring reassurance and comfort to all who are living through this dark night of fear.
