First, has Hurricane Katrina affected you--or your family and friends? Beliefnet seeks photos and first-person stories dealing with the spiritual effects of the storm.
Second, how has your own house of worship or spiritual community reacted to the crisis? If you attended services, what did your clergy leader say that touched you most? Or were you disappointed? What, if anything, is your house of worship doing to help? Do you have ideas for what other religious communities can do?

If you submit a photograph, please also include caption information indicating where and when it was taken, and what it shows.
