Lest We Forget

About This Book

The Cerro Grande Fire of 2000, resulted in  evacuation of the community of Los Alamos and the loss of over 400 structures.  The White Rock United Church had four families associated with church that lost their homes.  Others were affected because of losses of family member homes.  The evacuation was an experience nearly all in the community. This book is a compilation of stories of church members, their experiences with loss, and the spiritual support they got from those around them and communities near and far.  I compiled this book because I realized that once life returned to the daily routine, we would soon forget the many miracles in the midst of devastation.  These stories remind us of God’s grace in the time of disaster.
