The Christian Science Board of Directors has established a fund to provide needed assistance for relief efforts in the region. The Board recognizes that everyone's heart yearns to help all those affected by hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and throughout the Gulf Coast area. They invite readers to join with people from all over the world who are praying that those in need will discover proof of God's power helping them - comforting, guiding, and protecting them.
In addition, you're invited to visit the Current Events page on spirituality.com, which includes an audio Q&A talk recorded Aug. 29, called "A prayerful response to hurricane Katrina." Coming issues of the Christian Science Sentinel also will include reports and articles sharing ways people are reaching out to help.
