This is the incredible account of the pastor/runner (my kind of minister!) who encountered the tornado on Good Friday "quite first hand." It is a little long, but oh, what a story. He describes the actual eye of the tornado as he is horizontal to the ground.

A Tornado Perspective from Which ‘Wich

I don't know if you have ever been in a tornado or not – or if you have ever had to go to your "safe place" when one passes by. We have had to a couple of times and it can be quite scary.

Went to a Hockey Game and a Miracle Broke Out!

I apologize that it’s been a while since I have "spoken" to you here. Lots going on, but I’ll just plead guilty and ask for mercy.
