Church leaders meeting in Christchurch

UPDATE: Meeting with me on Saturday

Yesterday I was in a gathering of about 200 church and ministry leaders in Christchurch. It was amazing to hear all the stories of how the churches have been involved in the relief and rescue efforts. They still are and are getting worn out. Churches that were destroyed in the east of the city were embraced and "adopted" by those in the west.

We need funds - I will put out a request on the blog soon so be prepared to give to the united church effort here.

We also need advice on how churches can work together to help rebuild the city over the long term. Does anyone know someone who has done this before on a large scale? Let me know.
