Today, on this third anniversary of Katrina, there was so much i wanted to share about the progress we've made thanks to our dear friends, the lessons we've learned along the way, and some really exciting plans for continued Kingdom building and renewal here in New Orleans. Instead, we've spent the day packing up the office and church, making sure our parishioners have made plans, and checking on the more vulnerable members of our Broadmoor community.
For the most part, folks are doing quite well. We're miles ahead of where we were in terms of preparation for Katrina. Even the State appears to have its act together. No major news from our city, however, since "Our Mayor" lives in the Dallas area. All things considered, we're looking really good at this point in the ballgame.
While an official evacuation has yet to be called, the highways going out of town are stacked up with crawling traffic. Our Annunciation/Broadmoor caravan intends to leave for Tennessee on Sunday morning. Stacy and the kids will bug out for Baton Rouge at some point on Saturday.
The Annunciation campus will close officially at 5p today, Friday, and re-open after the storm passes. We have not only Gustav to watch . . . but Hannah as well.
I'm signing off for now...and will begin blogging at http://annunciationbroadmoor.blogspot.com.
Prayers and Blessings from the Big Uneasy,
--(The Rev.) Jerry and Stacy Kramer serve at Church of the Annunciation, New Orleans, LA
