Fire at John Michael Talbots Hermitage in Arkansas

A long time fan of the music of John Michael Talbot, it was brought to my attention today that part of their facility, the Little Portion Hermitage, located in Arkansas' Ozark Mountains, was destroyed in fire last night, including the main chapel and library.

Unless we've experienced it ourselves, it is hard to imagine how we, ourselves, would react, given the same circumstances...

Sort of like the old adage, "It's hard to realize that God is all you need, until God is all you have..." or something like that... You can read more here.
