Pastoral letter on floods and tornados
Over the last ten days we have been witnesses to life changing disruptions from flood and tornados. In the last few days we have watched the damage, injury and loss of human life across a wide region of the United States but especially Alabama. I have already felt us praying together in behalf of our sisters and brothers most acutely affected by the havoc. Thank you. I also feel you mobilizing your physical energies and financial resources to do what we do which is to help and heal. You are remarkable.
During this weekend's worship services please remember all of this in the prayers of the people. Your gifts for tornado disaster response can be channeled through UMCOR in the following way: US Spring Storms 2011, UMCOR Emergency Advance #3021326.
