9.11.01… The news came from the radio as I was pulling into the church parking lot in Cortland. I was only in full time ministry for three and a half months.

Three lessons learned:

1) Crisis is when seemingly unpractical theology becomes intensely practical.

2) The purpose of churches building relationships in the community is to be there in times of need: to help & be the shoulder to cry on.

3) Crisis makes what is important crystal clear.

Certain things should not be forgotten about 9.11.01:

1) Crisis brings out the best in us.

2) Evil exists in the world.
