Oil spill touches Louisiana churches
The Rev. Kirby Verret is working all sides of the Gulf Coast oil spill disaster that threatens both his small Louisiana church and his community. He is trying to tend to his 178-member Native American United Methodist congregation at Clanton Chapel in Dulac, La., offering support to families and people who fish for a living. And he is negotiating with British Petroleum, which wants access to the large, centralized sewer system -- built after Hurricane Juan in 1985 -- on the church's property and space to house cleanup teams on church grounds.
