It's a story of two congregations and two disasters. St. Vincent's Episcopal Church in Haiti was almost destroyed by the earthquake two years ago. The members of St. Paul's Episcopal in New Orleans, which was almost destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005, felt an immediate kinship with the Haitians. They speak of paying forward, giving back, and of an organization called Red Thread Promise.
