This Makes Me Want to Give
Over at TheHighCalling.org, we're thinking about giving.
Just a little goes a long way, to create a thoughtful and beautiful community— right in the middle of a crowded, sometimes competitive-feeling online world. So this morning, I hopped over and did a little giving. I don't say this as some kind of pat-me-on-the-back thing. I just think it's important for you to know that I'm willing to give to what I believe is a beautiful thing (I bet you and I may have even met at TheHighCalling... see how beautiful that is? :)
After I gave my little gift, I was pleasantly surprised to see Sam's smiling face pop up, with a thank-you blurb beside his picture. I even listened (that was pretty cool) to him say his thank-you, because there was a little button you could push to hear his pleasant voice.
Anyway. This got me thinking: how fun would it be if I gave something to anyone who might consider giving a little to TheHighCalling.org? (Okay, I can't give to everyone, but I could give to a giveaway winner, so here we are.) For the giveaway, I chose a book that has impacted my life in a Sabbath kind of way, just as TheHighCalling.org has impacted me in a Sabbath kind of way.
And you don't have to do this to enter the Sacred Rhythms giveaway, but I would love it if you'd consider doing one of these things before adding your name to my comment box:
- tweet TheHighCalling.org's give page
- Facebook TheHighCalling.org's give page
- give $10 to encourage 5 people at TheHighCalling.org
- write a blog post telling what TheHighCalling.org has meant to you (and include a link to the give page)
Let me know if you do any of these things and I'll try to retweet, share, and link to your own sweet gifts.
Comment by Thursday, May 12, for a chance to win Sacred Rhythms. And thanks for being a gift to me. :)
