Death toll mounts in wake of Joplin tornado

The death toll from a gigantic tornado that struck Joplin, Missouri, has risen to 132, as of today. According to local government officials, the death toll rose by more than 60 between today and yesterday. Still, officials are working around-the-clock to account for those missing.

Fortunately, about 90 people who were originally listed as missing were found alive, heartening rescuers about the ability of finding even more people alive in the wake of the storm. Authorities say they believe many of those who are still missing are believed to be alive and safe, though out of contact with their family and loved ones.

The New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to multiculturalism, diversity, social justice and religious tolerance. The mission of the seminary is to prepare men and women, from every background, for careers in ministry.
