Prayer, connections work to get jobs

I saw this article on CNN today that gave examples of how the church is helping people deal with the difficult economy, with strategies including both the spiritual and the practical.

The article is kind of forced into a faith-based initiatives argument, suggesting that churches are more "caring and compassionate" when it comes to the helping find jobs, although I don't think the evidence in the article really supports this view.

It is, however, a good example of coverage of a faith-based institution with a focus on the institution rather than the faith-based.
