The Other Hurricane Sandy: The Storms Impact in Haiti – Armin Rosen – The Atlantic

I am eager for “sending churches” to engage relationships with “receiving communities”–those relationships can grow into a mutual partnership, koinonia, a godly fellowship.  In 2010, my parish looked for a way to respond to the earthquake in Haiti and chose to partner with people already on the ground: CHAP, the Christian Haitian American Partnership.

This article will help our team within the parish to grow in appreciating the good that is being done in Haiti by Haitians.

The Other Hurricane Sandy: The Storms Impact in Haiti – Armin Rosen – The Atlantic.

The article explores some of the positive changes that have happened in Haiti–so while they suffered the most deaths in the Caribbean from Hurricane Sandy, they saved an unknown number of lives.  Being in relationship includes the act of encouraging people to rise up and be the best that they can be–and even more so as Christians, to rise up and trust God to do more in and through them they they might ever have imagined.  In short, the grace of God poured into our souls transforms our outward engagement with the world around us.
