With all that's going on in the world, it might help for us to remember the strength of being a connectional church. This means that we here at Milner are not the "whole" body but act as part and in concert with other members of the body across our region and denomination.We don't need to respond to every event and every disaster equally as different parts of the body are equipped to respond in different, mutually constructive ways. But, we should respond in the way which best matches the strengths, gifts, and call of Milner.
Here are some links to other members of the body:
