As the dimensions of a breath-taking tragedy unfold in Asia I feel inadequate to comment. First-person accounts are flooding in as the numbers continue to climb. The last number I heard was twenty-two thousand dead.
Michele Catalano of A Small Victory is one of several bloggers providing a list of places to send relief contributions.
She is the "Michele" responsible for The Comand Post, the original warblog which started as a temporary clearing house for messages about the war in Iraq and became an institution instead.

Two weeks ago our priest spoke of a coming tsunami.
Everyone thought (including him, no doubt) that he was speaking metaphorically about an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.
No one imagined he was speaking literally in prophetic terms.
