help for Haiti

If you are looking for ways to help and be alongside the suffering people of Haiti:
- offer financial help via agencies such as Christian Aid Oxfam and Unicef
- resources to be alongside the people: I'm reading chapter 1 of the book of Lamentations in the Jewish scriptures/Christian Old Testament, which laments for a city and people devastated - look out for the slender thread of hope in chapter 3
- for a ritual to accompany prayer how about scattering a pile of old bricks or stones, light small candles or nightlights amongst them, say a prayer as you do so and go into silence....
