Those of you who know me personally now why that X appears in the title of this post. As a ‘lapsed’, that’s the polite word for it, Catholic I’m not too fond of those I generally name the ‘Xtian Death Cult Zombies’.
Jesus however is a different kettle of fish. He was never more apt and truly human, a lot better that than some vengeful, bloody Jewish Ya-Weh to my way of thinking, than when he said:
‘For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more.’
This post isn’t even about ‘giving’ per se rather lending a helping hand to some of the millions of poor who can be found in every country on the globe. This post is about Microfinance a way for anyone with a few bucks to help the poor become more self-sufficient and to do it without involving the vampires of the IMF or the World Bank.
Ran across descriptions of these three organizations in the newspaper today and thought I’d pass along the contact information. This is part of my ‘Prosperity’ post which I am trying to work on at present which you may, or may not, recall is part of my Progressive is Peace, Health and Prosperity meme.
Anyway check these folks out for your Xmas ‘giving’ and let me know what you think if you do get involved in this growing movement to provide progressive help, not charity, to the poor.
Stay confident and upbeat. Progressives are the wave of the future!
