The Great River region of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is working hard to match up people in need and seeking refuge with those who have space or items to offer or can help in some way.

But their message board is more than that. People have posted stories, prayer requests, amazingly generous offers, etc. Some of these are tough to read. It’s almost like a living shrine to the spirit at work among these good people. May God bless us and keep us tonight, as we struggle to make sense of this, to keep hope alive for those in seemingly hopeless situations and to find the best ways to help those who need it.
