Thinking back on this day four years ago, I remember how devastating it was to see my church in pieces on the ground. But when I attended the first service after the tornadoes, as we sang "This Little Light of Mine" and held candles in the air, I could tell something special was happening. I'll never forget it. I felt my heart swell as people came together in service and in love. Four years later, can you believe how far we've come? God shook us apart to grow us all closer together.
