What Goes Around Comes Around

OK This was also linked by The Glenn but this needs as much linkage as possible.

It turns out, a group of guys in the Iraqi Army wanted to do something for the California fire victims, because they felt that the US had done so much for Iraq. So they raised $1000 US, and gave it to the local US Army commander to pass on.

$1000 US wouldn't get a family of four through half a month. In physical terms, it's absolutely nothing. In terms of sacrifice and a heart of compassion, it's everything.

"As he looked up, Jesus saw the rich putting their gifts into the temple treasury. He also saw a poor widow put in two very small copper coins. 'I tell you the truth,' he said, 'this poor widow has put in more than all the others.'" Luke 21:1-3

May God grant these people security and peace.

PK, over at BibliOdyssey, is having a book published based on the excellent, and very eclectic art history blog he has run for the last two years.

(gotta get me a copy....)

Following up on a post at New Wineskins I took a web-based 'Spiritual Type Test'.

I came out as a Mystic.

No surprises there, I suppose.

Well, an overwhelming feeling of ennui over all things political and social, as well as a busy creative schedule, have kept me away from blogging. I couldn't resist linking to the above. (Although, if you are like 99% of web users, and read The Glenn, you've already seen this.)

The best quote...."And the reference to Cruise in the last paragraph is for the movie War of the Worlds, in which we see two hours of Cruise running away from aliens while the American military fights them despite desperate odds. I'm beginning to see that as an analogy for Hollywood in general."
