Have an extra t-shirt and a pair of pants?
...lay them on a street corner, the church steps, any public place with a note pinned to them tommorrow saying: "I've been raptured."

1. There is a side benefit to this
That most likely someone ends up getting those clothes at some point.

It also works with random boxes of food -- I don't have a home mail delivery so when they did Stamp out Hunger I elected to do a couple of those around the neighborhood. There are definitely some folks around here that can use it.

2. If there really were to be a rapture tomorrow
I think you'd find the empty clothes near the homeless shelters, food pantries and free clinics.

3. That is an interesting thought
Matthew 19:24

New International Version (1984)
Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God."


Methinks Mr. Camping of "" http://www.familyradio.com / "" will be an unhappy camper starting tomorrow night given the millions of dollars these suckers have given him, not to mention the $122 million in assets for the radio station itself.

4. I think you are absolutely right. Wouldn't that be a shock! Thanks... yours is a refreshing
post. :yourock:

The Gift of the Poor
The people with the best sense of what is essential to a community, of what gives and maintains its spirit, are often doing very humble, manual tasks. It is often the poorest person - the one who has a handicap or who is ill or old - who is the most prophetic. People who carry responsibility must be close to them and know what they think, because it is often they who are free enough to see with the greatest clarity the needs, beauty and pain of the community.
- Jean Vanier, Community and Growth, p. 262
