Organized Religion

Churches Aiding Tornado-Torn Communities -
Local churches in Tennessee and Kentucky have played a key role in aiding the towns devastated by tornadoes last week, reports the Associated Press.

Churches have become local distribution points for disaster relief. Storm victims have gathered there, as they once did every Sunday, to receive donated goods, and communities have used the churches to rally themselves.

In addition, churches have helped to comfort people after the unseasonable storms flattened their communities and to mourn the 59 people confirmed dead and hundreds more left homeless. They will also likely play an important role in rebuilding the lost towns.
