Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

City of God - Day 20 and Challenge

Two bits of good news, then:

First: Mad Priest has reported our Day 20 Grand Total is:


Everybody say, 'WOW'!

Everybody say, "Amazing!"

Everybody say, "Thank you."

Well donee!

Second: I have received a challenge offer:

The Christmas Appeal for the City of God will receive $200 if y'all can match the gift.

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.
