So many in our congregations have loved ones in Mexico, Puerto Rico and the Caribbean. Our
are with those who wait for news of life and well-being. Steve Abdow is working with Bishop Fisher to send additional funds to help
Episcopal Relief and Development
, and its
US Disaster Program
respond to the immediate needs in the Caribbean, Puerto Rico and Mexico.
We are weary of the suffering, and it's easy to think that the gift we made four weeks ago is enough, but we have never faced a chain of disaster so great. Harvey, Irma, Jose, Maria and two earthquakes - we can barely keep up, and integrate so much pain into our hearts and minds. May God give us endless compassion and strengthen our resolve to keep making a difference.
