Mississippi Pastor Urges Congregation to Trust God
REDWOOD, Miss. (AP) - A Methodist pastor in Redwood, Miss., has urged her congregation to trust God as floodwaters threaten their church and community.
Many members of Redwood United Methodist Church have evacuated their homes. Some are living with relatives; others in hotels. The church's parsonage is a temporary home for six church members who had been searching for higher ground.
Pastor Barbara Hite prayed, "Help us to hold on to our faith. We choose to trust Jesus. "
While the flooding of the Mississippi River is devastating their lives, neighbors are pulling together to tough it out until the waters go down.
