Southern Baptists and Swine Flu
We have all been following the news reports of the spread of swine flu. We are not at pandemic levels, but the situation is being monitored by Southern Baptist Disaster Relief leadership. There has been freguent communication between Southern Baptist Disaster Relief leadership and officials from FEMA and the CDC.
Southern Baptists should use this time to consider what their response will be when a pandemic outbreak does happen. As with all disasters, planning is the key. Health officials have said that at some point there will be a pandemic flu outbreak and the recent news should be another reminder to the church to plan to be the people God has called us to be, even in the midst of difficult situations.
Your Family – What happens with your family? Do you have enough food and water to last for two weeks? What about communication? These are good things to think about for any kind of disaster. View more information on family preparedness.
Your Church – How does the church respond? In the event of Pandemic Flu, congregations could not meet together for worship, Sunday school or other events. Pastors would not be able to visit in hospitals or homes. How will the body of Christ continue to function in these situations? How will the church be the conduit for ministry? How will she minister to families who experience the loss of a loved one? Read more about church preparedness.
Your Association – What would be the role of the association in a pandemic flu outbreak. Churches would need to pull together to minister to the community at large. The association could help all congregations facilitate communication and develop creative avenues for worship and ministry.
Manuals for Family, Church and Associational Prepareness are available for download on the Disaster Relief resources website.
The Department of Health and Human Services has published achecklist to assist churches and faith-based service organizations in preparing for a pandemic or other disaster.
The greatest tool we have is direct access to the Father. Please pray for individuals, families, churches and communities affected by this flu outbreak. Please consider making plans for your family, church and association should an outbreak occur.
The US Centers for Disease Control has information about the current outbreak and how to protect yourself anf your family from infection.
Specific information on Pandemic Flu is available atwww.pandemicflu.gov
The World Health Organization is maintaining updated information on the situation around the world.
