Long radio silences and worthy causes

Hello all my faithful readers. It’s been a long time between posts, and for that I can only apologise. I have a pile of things to post about, and just haven’t had the time to sit down and put my words together! 

Watch this space over the next couple of weeks for posts on learning to be still, whether all your family meals have to be home-cooked well-balanced gourmet feasts, and our experience buying beds.

Rest assured that I haven’t abandoned you all, and normal service will resume over the next couple of weeks.

In the meantime, I’d like to send you all over to visit a blogger I’ve been following for the last few months. His name is Steve Wiens and he blogs as “The Actual Pastor: Living My Life As IS instead of As IF”. Steve is a pastor, and he does blog about his faith and what it means to him. His blog is thought provoking, genuine and above all honest. Steve has decided to do this completely crazy thing. He’s running the GRAND CANYON from rim to rim. In ONE DAY. Apologies for all the capitalisation, but this guy is clearly insane. The reason he’s doing this? He’s learnt about the sex trafficking of teenage girls which goes on in Ethiopia every single day. Rather than just saying “that’s very sad, let’s pray for them” Steve has got off his butt, is running the Grand Canyon and raising money for these young women. $1000 will buy a teenage girl out of the sex industry, will give her a skill or trade, and make it possible for her to stay out of the sex trade. Isn’t that a worthwhile thing to do? His original target was to raise $50,000 and save fifty young women. He’s reached his target and is continuing to raise money. And in mid-September, he will run his heart out for the young women he doesn’t know. Do check out his blog, and check out how you can support this great cause.
