Resources in the Aftermath

By Derek Weber

Storm Damage Thank You Volunteers

The physical toll of the devastating storms is evident, if overwhelming. Photo after photo, interview after interview tells the story of the damage done and the cost of rebuilding what can be rebuilt or starting over where nothing is left. There are many ways that we can help with donations and labor and prayers. Start here for donating to UMCOR for disaster relief.

Worshiping communities can gather together using some of the words for worship here on our site as a way of showing solidarity with the hurting and providing strong spiritual support. This is another visible way of bringing healing to a hurting community and individuals within it.

What might not be as visible is the psychological or emotional damage that can result from facing a disaster or even the ongoing struggle of rebuilding a life. We want to encourage all those who might be struggling right now to seek help. We also invite those who see neighbors or friends or family members showing signs of mental or emotional strain to suggest resources that are available. Please seek help.

Here are some resources, national and regional that might be good starting places in seeking help:

Rev. Dr. Derek Weber, Director of Preaching Ministries, served churches in Indiana and Arkansas and the British Methodist Church. His PhD is from University of Edinburgh in preaching and media. He has taught preaching in seminary and conference settings for more than 20 years.
