Response to Hurricane Sandy
31 Oct 2012 by Tim Keller
By now you have seen or even personally experienced the unprecedented devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy. Please continue to pray for those who are experiencing hardship and uncertainty as a result of the massive storm, especially those who are most vulnerable.
If you'd like to help, consider the following opportunities:
Send money or volunteer with Hope for New York's Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
Give to Redeemer's Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund, which will go to congregational needs and to organizations serving throughout the city.
Let’s also remember to love our neighbors. We have an opportunity to tangibly live out our current sermon series on generosity—to give of ourselves relationally, hospitably, and financially in life-transforming ways. I know that many in the church are already hosting others in their congregations and beyond who have been displaced. Check in with your neighbors, friends and church members to see if they are in need. If you have a neighbor who is elderly or has a special need, ask how you might serve them.
As Psalm 46 says, “God is our refuge and strength and an ever-present help in time of trouble.”
