Good Stuff in TEC: New York

From The Church Times in England a report on the Church's response to those losing jobs in the financial district on both sides of the pond.

In New York, Canon Anne Mallonee, Vicar of Trinity, Wall Street, said that there had been a “solemn” atmosphere in the city this week, and some members of the congregation had lost their jobs.

“Of course people are concerned and wondering what will happen next. Some have lost their jobs, and for others there is a sense of foreboding. But we are able to have our doors open every day for anyone to come in and pray and reflect. We have daily services, and attendances have been high this week.”

They also are hosting career work shops for those who have lost their jobs and are struggling with the psychological impact. “We know people are hurting, and as a church we’re equipping the saints to reflect the love of God for the people of God.”
