Pastor’s Crossing

To the saints at Stone Mountain:
Last Sunday, October 10, there were 87 vessels waiting off the coast of the Pacific
Ocean, trying to get into the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. On those ships
are some of the products that should be on the shelves of our supermarkets. Out
there on those ships are also the parts for partly assembled electronic products and
goods for retail stores across the United States.
I’ve been thinking about this backlog for a while now and I am fascinated by the
idea that what’s happening in the waters on the west coast could directly affect me
here in Stone Mountain, Georgia. It’s complex, in that there are many moving parts
and players involved. As COVID-19 progresses, more consumers are buying online
rather than in person. Therefore, the number of containers of goods from overseas
has significantly increased. On June 30, the port of Los Angeles hit an all-time high
of having 10.9 million shipping containers in the port in a single 12-month period.
There is a shortage of people to unload the ships, a shortage of drivers to transport
unloaded goods, a shortage of people in warehouses to which those goods would go
and on and on it goes.
A logistical hiccup in Los Angeles is felt in Stone Mountain. Who would have thunkit? 🙂
This whole supply chain drama makes me think that what I do can have ripple
effects across my state and even across the country.
Glad the tomb is empty,
Pastor Farmer
