Love In Action

The sheer enormity of the Hurricane Katrina story is overwhelming to me:

- the devastation that it wreaked on New Orleans and its people

- the multi-level failure of emergency preparedness to respond to the storm and its aftermath

- the task of clean-up and rebuilding

Where does one begin?

Here at St. Matthias, my church in New Jersey, we have chosen a way to begin, a way to help. We are reaching out to Epiphany, a church and parish in New Orleans, that was heavily damaged by the storm. We are sending them aid now, and are offering to go down there, at the appropriate time, to help in the restoration.

Although it's only a small scale effort, it feels like the right thing to do.

If enough churches and other organizations did something like this, a small scale effort could become a large scale effort.
