I'm getting ready to sit in on another Bible study with an old buddy, on Isaiah 40. My emotions caught me, because some words of the prophet are irrevocably attached to a memory, painful, but good. The loss of the space shuttle Columbia, on February, 1, 2003. President Bush quoted these words: "Lift up your eyes on high and see: who created these? He who brings out their host by number, calling them all by name; by the greatness of his might, and because he is strong in power not one is missing." The president said the Lord called them by name, and though we can't see them anymore, not one of them is missing. It was powerful stuff, the kind of thing that makes people give him the benefit of the doubt, when they wouldn't, or shouldn't. It's that unfailing empathy that marks this time of good feelings toward "43". Others could learn from him.
