Was Katrina an act of God?

Hurricanes are considered acts of God on insurance policies, one of the few instances where God is mentioned in business documents.

If one believes in God, and considers Katrina an act of God, then one must wonder what God is trying to tell us. If one does not believe in God, the conclusions are the same. Here are some of the messages I read into the calamity.

1) The Federal government has wasted hundreds of billions of dollars building a bureaucracy that is incapable of responding to a well-predicted disaster, with well-established procedures in place. FEMA is supposed to handle a surprise terrorist attack!

2) The American people have been told in no uncertain terms not to trust the Bush administration to protect, rescue or care for victims of a disaster.

3) The Bush administration is more concerned about image than about truth. The spin efforts are all too obvious now.

4) The Bush refusal to acknowledge global warming has consequences. The devastation wrought by hurricanes equals or outweighs that wrought by terrorism. The Pentagon said a couple of years ago that global warming is the greatest threat we face, but the study was ignored.

5) The American people continue to be loving and generous toward suffering neighbors. We deserve a government that reflects our spirit.

God's message comes at the cost of incredible pain and suffering. Perhaps it is time to pay attention.

Psalm 111: 10 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom.

In the name of the Prince of Peace, Carol Wolman
