PC(USA) - News Service - Altogether in one place

PC(USA) - News Service - Altogether in one place:
"GULFPORT, MS — “It was visual Christianity in action,” said a team member describing her experience at Orange Grove Volunteer Village here. “It’s awesome how God has brought us together — Presbyterians from east and west to respond to real need.”

Orange Grove is one of six innovative volunteer villages launched by Presbyterian Disaster Assistance (PDA) in response to devastation left by category 5 Hurricane Katrina, along with Wilma and Rita, which followed close on her tail. ..."
Here is a timely reminder from Presbyterian News Service that even though we are in the midst of the 2006 hurricane season, that the work is not done with respect to the devastation of 2005.

Congregations, mission committees, and presbyteries need to keep thinking about disaster relief, even when no immediate disasters are looming, and keep sending work teams and dollars to assist in the Katrina/Rita cleanup efforts.
