California Wild Fires

How is everyone holding up out in Cali? I know that we have users here from the state, but honestly do not know where the fires are burning compared to where you all live. Anyone impacted or have the potential to be impacted? Is there anything we can do to help you all?

I'm from Redding where the Carr Fire has taken out about a dozen homes of friends of mine. I've been working in China and Korea during the whole event so it's been kind of frustrating to watch from afar. My family is all safe and our homes are all OK so that's been an answer to prayer.

A good friend's parents lost their home in the Carr fire. A buddy was evacuated for a couple of days, but suffered no losses in the Holy Fire. I have some other friends near the Holy Fire that I'm not in much contact with, so I worry about them. As for me, my asthma has been not good due to smoke, but all of the fires are pretty far away.

British Columbia is on fire too, though probably not as much covered in the American news. Vancouver is choked in smoke. I'm not home right now (on the other side of the country), but I'm not looking forward to going home.

The tree of Eden once caused bitterness,
But the Tree of the Cross made sweetness of life to blossom!
In tasting the first, Adam fell into to corruption,
But as we eat the Body of Christ we are given life and mystically deified,
Receiving God's eternal Kingdom.
Therefore we cry out in faith:
Glory to Your suffering, Lord!

I have to admit, I have not heard that. It doesn't sound pleasant.
