The July/August issue of Touchstone features my article "Christ and Katrina." You can read it here. The article, recognizing the fifth anniversary of the worst natural disaster in American history, is less about the hurricane itself than it is about a Christian view of home and homecoming.

It was a painful article to write, in many ways, especially since, after I wrote the article, my hometown was hit with now the worst man-made catastrophe in American history, a kind of slow-motion Katrina.

But thinking this through left me with a sense of hope and worship and peace. We do not yet see all things under his feet, it is true, but we see Jesus, crowned with glory and honor (Heb. 2:8-9).
