This week at Partners in the Gulf.

Michelle Bates Deakin reports on partner groups on the Gulf Coast who are using funds raised by Unitarian Universalists to help disadvantaged communities rebuild after Hurricane Katrina. Her article is the cover story in the Winter issue of UU World. And, in an online-only extra, she visits Phoenix, Louisiana, to profile the Rev. Tyrone Edwards, who is leading his small community's recovery with help from the UUA-UUSC Gulf Coast Relief Fund.

Also this week: Doug Muder takes a look at the Evangelical gay-conversion movement with a review of Tanya Erzen's book, Straight to Jesus.

In the news, Jane Greer reports on congregational responses to the global AIDS crisis. Don Skinner reports on the ordination of 100-year-old Muriel Davies, whose husband, A. Powell Davies, led a church-growth movement in the Washington, D.C., area fifty years ago. And, as always, Sonja Cohen tracks Unitarian Universalists in the media.

Thank you for including the link to the review of the newly Rev. Muriel Davies' ordination. I did not know about her, aside from her notable spouse. Now I have a new story to revive me if ever I feel tired.
