Goodness in disaster

‘God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good.’ Genesis 1:31

This blog by Rachel Parker is part of All We Can’s ‘Rethinking Disasters’ micro-blog series.

We are a community of people, on a global scale. When disasters strike let us strive to restore and enable what is good. Because together we can.

Through loving each other, supporting each other and speaking up for those who are fighting difficult circumstances in our world. When God beheld the world that he had created he said it was very good and we can work as a global community in restoring that creation, most critically, in times of disaster.

Rachel Parker is currently studying towards a master’s degree in International Development. She is a 32 year old mother of four girls, living in Hull where her husband works for the church.
