Held together by a common goal to protect vulnerable disaster survivors and a deep commitment to respectful conversation, 50 diverse, non-profit and faith-based disaster response organizations found a way through divisive religious issues to develop national standards in disaster spiritual care.

The Rev. Mary Hughes Gaudreau speaks on the subject as part of the first Re-mind and Re-new conference at Phillips Theological Seminary in Tulsa.

The conference was designed to model ways of disagreeing, find common ground, stay in relationship and do important work together despite deep differences.
