Bishop tells flood victims it's ok to cry out

MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Evangelical Lutheran Bishop Mark Narum says
he spent Sunday visiting churches in his flooded North Dakota
diocese -- not to preach, but to listen.Narum says he assured
  evacuees that it was OK to cry out to Godin despair, even
 as they leaned on fellow church members for prayerand the help
 they'll need to recover. Evangelical Lutheran pastors Mike Johnson
  and Mike Pancoast are bunking with friends in Minot after being forced
to leave theirhomes last week. They spent Saturday helping other
 people evacuate.So many people have opened their homes to evacuees
that while some 11,000 people fled neighborhoods near the river,
only a few hundred used shelters at Minot State University and the City
Auditorium.
