We are all family
As it happens, Haiti is demographically the largest diocese in the Episcopal Church. We have very real and ongoing relationships-- through bishops, clergy, missionaries, aid workers, sister churches, etc.-- with these our brothers and sisters in Christ.
If you are in the habit of reading a daily devotional called "Forward Day by Day," you may note that the writer for January is a missionary priest, formerly stationed in the Sudan, currently serving in Haiti. Another "friend from back when" recently married a fine man from Haiti, which means they are now searching for members of her new family. Two aid workers from the Diocese of Chicago are, as of this writing, also among the missing.
Of course, none of this makes any difference as to whether or not we should care; but connections and relationships make the awareness of desperate need more acute... more real. Relationships remind us of what matters.
Here are some ways to help, in Jesus' name:
Episcopal Relief and Development
Catholic Relief Services
Lutheran Disaster Response
UCC Disaster Relief Fund
PC(USA) Presbyterian Disaster Assistance
United Methodist Committee on Relief
or if you prefer a nonsectarian effort, already on the ground, I'd suggest:
Doctors Without Borders
In any case... please say a prayer for the people of Haiti-- and then make your care tangible.
