Volunteers of America

“One generation got old
One generation got soul
This generation got no destination to hold.”
– “Volunteers” by Jefferson Airplane

That’s just to get your attention and direct you to Jim’s site where he’s re-thinking volunteer work.

His post is here:

Should you look at all the categories I checked and then read his entry you’ll see they apply.

Especially when you go back a few blog entries of mine where I’m trying to teach my son the importance of giving to those in need.

In Harrison, Arkansas, I was briefly involved in Habitat for Humanity and would like to take up the hammer again somehow in this area and live out my faith through my works.

But a critical area in doing that in my life is scheduling – actually making the time to do so. I’m thinking what Jim’s proposing coupled with effective information-gathering such as Supernovamom does (she is saving me a lot of cash) could make for some awesome results benefitting all those involved.

And more importantly, advancing God’s Kingdom.

God’s peace and love to you all.

  1. Thanks for the link love, Sam. Now, if I only had something “real” to show for it.

  2. Sam,

    Totally unrelated but interesting.
