Detroit Flood Relief
Help Needed for Flood Clean-up
From June 25-27, the state of Michigan, and specifically Wayne County, was deluged with rain and flooding. It is estimated that 1,000 to 3,000 homes were affected by flooding and will require some form of remediation. Our neighbors need our help!
In his message to Michigan UMC churches yesterday, Bishop David Bard wrote “In his letter to the Corinthian Jesus community, Paul writes about our interconnectedness in Jesus Christ that when one part of a body suffers, all suffer with it (I Corinthians 12:26). There is a truth there about our shared humanity. When there is suffering, we are invited to feel it, know it and respond to it in the name and spirit of Jesus.”
