Two bits of good news, then:
First: Mad Priest has reported our Day 20 Grand Total is:
Everybody say, 'WOW'!
Second: I have received a challenge offer:
I know. It's the 20th of December. Five days before Christmas. You have just learned the appropriate 'O Antiphon' for the day. You have things to do. Places to go. People to meet.
Well, add this: Scrape spare change off bureau, check between the sofa cushions for coins, and find that crumpled ten dollar bill you've been saving in your wallet 'for an emergency' that hasn't happened since you started using a credit card.
Now, add up the sum and go on over to MadPriest's and donate. G'won. You know you want to.
Or, you can send your cheque or money order, marked "City of God" to:
The Episcopal Church of St. Paul
200 Main Street
Chatham, NJ 07928
Thank you and may God continue to bless your generous heart.
