“When I was in seminary and graduate school, nobody ever taught me what to do when the community is devastated, the church building is unusable and you lose your home, all at the same time,” he said. “What I ended up doing after Ike, because the island was closed for a period of time, was to set up shop at a Starbucks in Dallas. We started trying to contact every church member by phone.”
