Please find below a link to an article about faith-based relief efforts in the wake of the recent tornadoes in the South, and other natural disasters. The article shows the power of religious faith in motivating people to help their neighbors, fellow citizens, and fellow human beings. And it also shows some of the dangers of this faith-based motivation – as when relief efforts are used as opportunities for evangelism. It is very relevant to the Interfaith Center’s work, as these are some of the issues we explore every year in our “Social Work and Religious Diversity” course.
