Churches lending a hand in the wake of disaster

People are coming together in America's heartland in the wake of killer tornadoes that ravaged several communities only 10 days ago. At the First Baptist Church in Clanton, Alabama, parishioner Gordon Smelley and his "chainsaw gang" of 11 load up in a trailer and simply go out to help people.

Throughout the "Bible Belt," churches are spearheading efforts at community clean-ups and assisting people after more than 300 people were killed.

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.
