Resources from the US Disaster Program...
Is your congregation prepared?
Has your vestry discussed disaster preparedness? If you have taken your parish survey on the Episcopal Asset Map, then you have already taken an important step. Knowing the physical and pastoral resources of every congregation is a critical piece of disaster prep. Today is a good day to take the survey if it's still on your "To-Do" list. Here is a  link to WMA map and another to an easy  step-by-step guide to filling out your parish survey.
May we never face what our brothers and sisters in Texas are living with this day. We pray, we give, and we prepare.
