Couldn’t help but remember that earlier in the day I had mentioned the New Madrid, MO quakes of 1811-12, reported to be three of the strongest quakes in US history. Actually changed the course of the Mississippi River. Damage as far away as Washington D.C. and Charleston, S.C. The February 7th, 1812 quake was reported to be the strongest of the group.
Why was I talking about an earthquake? Years ago I heard Lee Strobel refer to the New Madrid quake in an illustration about making a radical change, a trajectory change. Great metaphor.
Was it a coincidence that I talked about it yesterday? Nahhh. It caused me to get up this a.m. and look up the facts for myself. Next time I refer to the quake I’ll be able to add some pretty rich detail!
