Yesterday’s church contribution

Has been redirected, approximately 15 minutes ago, to Mercy Corps for the Japanese Earthquake Relief [if you have the means to send a contribution to help the people of Japan, please do].

Foregoing my contribution to church was not intentional.  I took a day trip to Richmond on Saturday (exhausting day).  The following morning, with the loss of an hour’s sleep (springing forward), I was lector at 8:00 a.m. Mass (meaning arriving at church before 8:00 a.m.).  Yesterday morning I could not find my checkbook to write a check.

That “church contribution” has been redirected.  And for a good cause!  Unlike many homes in Sendai, Japan, my church’s physical foundation is strong.  The loss of one’s week contribution is miniscule compared to the great need presently in Japan.
