“Tuscaloosa needs all the help it can get.”

“Tuscaloosa needs all the help it can get.”

St. Matthias Episcopal Church is in the thick of relief efforts in tornado-stricken Tuscaloosa, Alabama. (And news of the Episcopal Diocese of Alabama’s response is featured prominently on its homepage.)

From the Tuscaloosa News:

John Baird, who lives in Coker, made his way into Tuscaloosa on Saturday because he wanted to help victims of the devastating April 27 tornado.

“Being as close as I was to the tornado, and just seeing it and just knowing that I was spared, my home was spared, everything that I had was spared, I just wanted to go come out and do good for others,” Baird said.

Baird was one of hundreds of volunteers who assembled at St. Matthias Episcopal Church on Skyland Boulevard. The church was a staging area to assign workers to various tasks throughout the city.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
