The Church, Haiti and Disaster

February 4, 2010 by

Last week, we talked about your feelings on the way churches responded to the Haitian disaster.

Us? We were beaming with pride. And dreaming of a future where the church is known for responding this way, even when there is no natural disaster to be found.

Here’s just a shade of what we were reading:

Grass-roots efforts were springing up everywhere. Nearly every Christian organization was offering some sort of plan to give to Haiti. And despite a few folks trying to steal some children, things were positive.

It’s moving to see churches in the news for this sort of thing instead of pickets, protests and silly billboards. News organizations are ready and willing to chronicle our generosity, love and hope. But we have to tell the stories first.
