2 things

I forgot to tell you two things last night:
  1. Don Miller, our first speaker, is the founder of The Mentoring Project, whose purpose is to bring positive male role models to boys without fathers in the home. As other creative projects grow quickly, he noticed that his did not. The reason? They were all based on giving money towards something. It makes people feel good. But his project requires the giving of ones self, which is something else indeed. It is not that one is better than the other -- it is just that both are needed. Let's try to find projects that require them!
  2. Venice Williams of Chicago talked to us about going green. Plant those gardens, change those bulbs, do whatever it is one can do to help sustain the earth. But the statement of hers that caught me most was this: Going green is honoring God's imagination.
