It occurred to me after I sent out The Morning Watch this morning, that one of the number one principles of non-profit work is to give people the opportunity to give. Having run a non-profit for 25 years, I know how important it is to make it easy for people to do what you’re hoping they will do. If you do want to “stop on the way to church” tonight, http://www.homelessshelterdirectory.org lists all the known homeless shelters, food pantries, and soup kitchens in the US. I’d suggest giving them a call before stopping by to make sure your specific donation will be helpful and timely.
I also want to make sure that none of you who read The Morning Watch think I am in any way implying that any or all of you aren’t involved in active discipleship of the sort I suggested. I write The Watch to challenge myself. If it provides a challenge to others as well, I rejoice.
Sincerely in Christ,
