This was good to read from The Detroit Free Press: "KATRINA’S AFTERMATH: Churches take charge and care for survivors."
"Many churches have found a niche, becoming mini-relief agencies, filling in gaps
where the government has failed."
The response is what Frank and I were talking about in my previous blog: the church meeting people’s needs, beyond what the federal government and civic groups are doing.
I especially like what one pastor said to his staff: "Your job description, you can kiss it
good-bye." The systems we have in place in the Church are often the very things that keep us from ministering to people and responding to their ever-changing needs. It’s good to hear a pastor realize how disposable our routines should be.
I pray it continues.
