Video Blogger and Reverend Matthew Moretz of Christ Church sent MyRye.com some terrific videos to raise awareness of the crisis in Haiti. Christ Church has a nearly ten year relationship with a business school associated with the Episcopal Church in Les Cayes, Haiti.
In the third video, Moretz disassembles the impolitic, cruel and deranged view of the evangelist Pat Robertson on why tragedy befell Haiti.
"Christ’s Church has been partnering with the Episcopal Church in Les Cayes, Haiti since 2000, so this has been an especially troubling two weeks for our parish community," said Moretz. "A trustworthy avenue for your charity is “Episcopal Relief and Development” which has long standing relationships on the ground. Remember Haiti. Give with your soul."
(VIDEO: The first video is a special message from the Rector of Christ’s Church, the Rev. Canon Susan Harriss, to both Christ Church parish and the larger community.)
(VIDEO: The second is a more informative video discussion with David Bullock, parishioner and trustee of the Diocese of New York, who has been a leader in partnerships in Haiti.)
(VIDEO: The third is a more familiar “Father Matthew Presents” which tries to counter some of the discouraging remarks given by Pat Robertson on Haiti and the Devil.)
