Perhaps like several of you, I spent part of my night hunkered down in the bathtub with my wife and cat. I praise God our home and church were spared any major damage.
Union University, however, took a direct hit. My family is close to many of those affected by the storm in Jackson, TN. We praise God that thus far no deaths have been reported at Union, but they will be digging out for quite some time.
Please keep them in your prayers today and in the future. Pray for strength for President David Dockery as he leads the students and faculty through this terrible disaster. Pray for those that are injured, especially those still in the hospital. And pray for all of those affected by the storms across several states. I also know that at least one family connected to LifeWay Christian Resources in Nashville, TN (where my father is president) had family members killed in the storm. Pray for them as well during this time of grief and confusion.
