Remember God’s email to me?
Dear Faithful,I’m sorry to say that your nation will not be spared from another threatening typhoon, nor from any other natural calamity for that matter…
True enough, some weeks after that email, at least two more typhoons battered the country causing more destruction to lives and property.
Remember also the passage he wrote about the country being “misplaced” in the pacific rim of fire? Indeed this last few days, the world’s most near-perfect coned volcano is threatening to erupt anytime soon.
You know what the locals tell their children in times like this? Yes, you guessed right. Pray harder.
In Japan, which has 10% of the world’s active volcanoes and one of the countries in the Pacific Rim of Fire just like the Philippines, kids as young as five years old know the drills in times of calamity.
And I tell you, praying is not one of them.
