Light a candle, say a prayer for Haiti
And if you can, send money to a reputable organization. Episcopal Relief and Development (ERD) is accepting monetary donations. This agency already has a strong presence in Haiti and will have the resources in place to help got your dollars where they need to be as quickly as possible. There are other organizations that are reputable, but this is one I’m using.
At times like these, I don’t even know what to pray for first as there is so much happening all at once. So I guess I pray for endurance, for strength, for compassion, for civility, for the most effect delivery of relief and rescue efforts. May those who are in such need remember to treat each other as human beings, as they have done thus far.
And may God have mercy on us all.
