Religious response to disaster is often critical

Hurricane Sandy devastated the East Coast of the United States in October 2012, causing damage in 17 states and leaving millions without power or worse, with damaged or destroyed homes. Religious groups responded by sending relief supplies; among them, the Southern Baptist Convention. Bob Abernethy, host of Religion & Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, a source for cutting-edge religion news reporting and analysis, talked with Mike Ebert, the vice president for communications for the Southern Baptist Convention, in a 3 1/2-minute news video interview. The interview brings perspective to the critical parnerships among religious organizations and federal and local governments following disasters. Ebert noted that this was the largest response to disaster the SBC had ever conducted, and he outlined how his denomination participated in the recovery effort.
