God’s Love MultipliedPosted: September 17, 2017 Filed under: Bishop's Blog Comments Off on God’s Love Multiplied
I want to thank you for your generous and faithful response to your sisters and brothers affected by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma! I am thankful for the way God has worked through the disciples of the Nashville Episcopal Area to offer Christ to a hurting world.
Today we can celebrate your financial gifts to UMCOR that totaled over $87,000 during the past month from churches and individuals in our two conferences – and it is still coming in.
Our churches have connected directly through family members and sister churches in affected areas to assist them. Conference Emergency Response Teams quickly prepared to deploy as we waited for invitations and assignments from affected Annual Conferences.
And of course…we made cleaning bucket kits…THREE truckloads of buckets and other needed supplies. I invite you to watch the video below to see our volunteers in action!
I want to thank the people of the Memphis and Tennessee Conferences for your continued prayers, your financial gifts, and your hands-on response to our neighbors in need.
