HELP THOSE IN NEED FROM HURRICANE HARVEY. We have all seen the destruction down in Houston. Our thoughts and prayers go out to them, and prayer is the most important thing. If you would also like to help financially then I suggest two ways. First, donate to Episcopal Relief and Development, our own national church disaster response organization at http://www.episcopalrelief.org/. Second, there are also many reputable disaster response organizations like American Red Cross, Salvation Army, and Habitat for Humanity, our own Episcopal Relief and Development, and many more that can be found at https://www.nvoad.org/
