VALIDITY IN THE CHURCH

January 30, 2006

My pastor invited me to give a short blurb to the congregation explaining my charity program and how it can be tied into the church. It looks like the church may actually become a major source of support, whether through raw materials or funds -- how exciting!

I've decided to split my efforts into two directions -- one specifically geared towards the church body, and one for the local community. The church portion will be to meet the needs of the members of the church I attend. If the church body can't take care of its own members, why rely on it to take care of anybody, right? So, I'm working with the pastor to create a "see a need, fill a need" kind of page on the church's website so people can post things they need, or things they have available. I'd like it to be automated, so people can post and pull posts as become available or unavailable. I plan to create a similar feature on my site so I can help move goods and services around within the community. Good times.

In similar news, I've nearly completed my final piece necessary to get into the masters in Public Administration program. I'm writing up a paper on community-solutions to the welfare/homeless problems. As soon as I get that done, I'll get everything turned in and cross my fingers...
