Buckeye Back Road Tour cont.: We headed into Findlay, Ohio, over the weekend. Sarah and I stood at the busy intersection of Bright Ave and Rte 224 holding two signs. They said: ABORTION KILLS CHILDREN; and, LORD, PLEASE FORGIVE OUR NATION… Some people honked and waved their support, others didn’t… We went to an ultra-new and tremendously expensive St. Michael’s Church for Sunday Mass. High gloss marble, high expansive ceilings, costly stained glass, central air condidtioning… One of the prayer intentions this morning was to remember the increasing number of people in the Third World who were hungry because of rising food prices. I wondered how many millions of meals the cost of this new church would have provided — for the poor? There is such a phenomenal spiritual disconnect in this country… We came across a group from the Stoney Ridge Church in Findlay who were walking through the streets praying for their neighbors, and the town in general. Findlay was devastated by a flood in 2007 and the group told us that their church and some 17 other churches in the area had set about praying for the town, and the souls of their neighbors.
