Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund -
This is humbling.
The devastation seems unreal.
It’s nearly midnight on the night the storm hit. In fact, many parts of Manhattan and the surrounding areas are still feeling the effects of Hurricane Sandy. While I’m filled with a deep burden at the immense devastation experienced by both my neighbors and the East Village I’m also filled with great anticipation at the way many will come to the aid of friend and stranger in an effort to help, serve, love, care for and rebuild what was lost in the storm.
Several from our church plan to survey the area as the sun rises over the very river that’s flooded into our streets on Tuesday morning, October 30th. Hopefully we’ll get a real sense of the impact. We will have practical and immediate ways to serve and help. But you can also help now. We’ve set up a special relief fund that you can contribute to. These funds will be used to serve the victims of the storm - the residents of Lower Manhattan who have been impacted the most. Click on the link, sign in and select “Hurricane Sandy Relief” in the drop down menu.
The church in the East Village stands poised to help. Thank you for joining us in this endeavor. We’ll keep you posted on ways to help and pray and of course share stories of renewal that come from the cleanup effort.
Prayer in the morning (5/9) will be back inside @ 9 E 7th St, 2nd Fl due to expected rain that will fall from the sky. 7:30-8:30am. Join us as we pray for our neighbors & city.
Citywide worship tonight! Add your voice @ 7pm Bayard Rustin High school. 351 W18th. http://t.co/r67halFC #inNewYorkasitisinheaven
Good reminder and strong warning to guard well what/who we worship. Scriptures seem to indicate that what we worship (the idols in our life: sex, money, power, relationships, love, fame, career) have the power to craft us…literally to shape the human heart into that thing. We become what we worship.
This is a good reminder to evaluate where my trust lies.
Psalm 135:18 Those who make them (idols) become like them, so do all who trust in them!
Michael and I met for discipleship today at Subway in the LES. He attempted to order this sandwich, and I had no choice but to shut it down.
We missed you this week, William. See you next Monday!
Discipleship in our church & youth ministry…going strong!
