Abundance of Grace: College Buoyed by Prayers & Support During Thomas Fire

Posted: December 6, 2017

By God’s grace, Thomas Aquinas College appears to have emerged unscathed from the Thomas Fire. Although there has been extensive damage to trees and brush, as well as minor damage to the coffee-shop patio, no major structures have been harmed. 

Throughout these last few days, the community has been heartened by the countless prayers and offers of help that have come from all quarters — including Twitter. Below are just a sampling of many gracious and generous tweets.
