To buy or not to buy...'tis the question

We recently had a leak in our bathroom (and it happened when I was traveling which made it worse). Looking for steal-deals on Cyber Monday to help repair the damage got me thinking. (That happens occasionally -- the thinking, I mean.)

Read my latest article, A Christian Response to Cyber Monday and Beyond in The Examiner.

Feedback on The Examiner article is always appreciated.

Changing the face of homelessness

Homelessness is on a drastic increase in America and the homeless need our help. Read about a ministry and a man who are making a major difference for the homeless in my latest article in The Examiner here.

And if you want to know how to help children in at-risk situations, read my previous post.

A Simple Way to Help Orphans

alt=""id="BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5672415115229092978" />
There are countless ways to make a difference in the life of a child or help orphans generally. Here are a few:

* Pray for orphans and underprivileged children. (Join the Orphans First Prayer Chain.)
* Support a needy child or orphan ministry.
* Adopt or foster.
* Volunteer to help a foster or adoptive family. Provide respite care. * Mentor a fatherless youth or become a court appointed advocate for him/her. * Help homeless children. * Sew dresses or britches for poor children.

We can make a difference in some way -- be it big or small.

Orphan Sunday was designed to help people learn how to make a difference. Read about our Orphan Sunday event here in my latest Examiner article. And read about the diverse ways people are making a difference -- and how you can too.
