A Horse Named Grace: (and Noah)

Here’s an inversion of the biblical Noah story. In the story of flood, Noah is saved because of his righteousness. A remnant of humanity — and animals — take refuge on the ark.

In this era of global climate change, many natural disasters put our lives at risk, both  human and animal lives. Here is a sad story of horses who died due to drought. One horse was saved. See link.

Horse Saved From Drought

Now, I do not believe that God “caused” the flood  in the days of Noah. Nor did God cause the drought that killed many horses in Arizona. However, the fact that one horse was saved — aptly named Grace — can give us hope and alert all of us, in whatever ways we can, to be like the horse Grace. We are given life. Let us live in a way that we may contribute, generously, to the lives of others. Let us do our part to avert disasters and to contribute to restoring our natural environment.
