Interesting Cultural Moment For The Washington Post


From a frontpage story in the Washington Post about a guy in Sri Lanka who runs an orphanage:

Not only was water cascading over the lagoon side of the peninsula but it was pouring in directly from the mouth of the estuary about two miles away. Sanders feared the converging currents would swamp the small craft. At that point, Sanders said, he recalled a line from the Book of Isaiah: “When the enemy comes in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord shall raise up a standard against it.”

He raised his hand in the direction of the flood and shouted, “I command you in the name of Jesus — stop!” The water then seemed to “stall, momentarily,” he said. “I thought at the time I was imagining things.”
