Natural Disaster

This afternoon, like many people, my heart has been with those folks in the southern states who are struggling with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Also, there is flooding in Transylvania, in many of the Unitarian communities there. Peacebang has a post concerning the situation in Transylvania. Scott Wells is focussing on the Katrina situation.

The victims of these disasters need our prayers. They also need "this world" assistance. Scott has a link to the American Red Cross for those who wish to donate. The UUA report linked above has a way to give to the Partner Church Program.
