FLOODED BY NOAH
As a child, I didn't really get much out of the Bible story of Noah and the flood. Sometimes I thought about the animals that boarded the ark, chose my favorites, and tried to imagine what it would be like to sail off in torrential rains, watching home and familiar countryside disappear under water. But Noah's experience remained remote from family life in the city. The only boats we sailed were dinghies on a nearby dam.
Also, Noah's stormy passage from his village to the peak of Mount Ararat wasn't a happy scenario—in fact, quite scary—which is probably why I wasn't keen to even think about the lessons it might hold for me.
