I was looking through the headlines, and it was the same ole bad news. Something in me decided that I had enough bad news, so I started looking for some good news to write about on my blog. After scrolling around, I came upon a headline that shared some excellent news. A church in Virginia raised 100 thousand dollars to pay off the student loans of 34 graduates in their congregation. In January, the pastor asked the church to give up something for the month, it ranged from social media, to alcohol. Then they asked the church to donate the money they would normally spend on that to the church. At the end of January, they had raised 100k.
34 graduates now owe nothing on their student loans thanks to this church. What an amazing example of selfless service. I think that this is a tremendous example of what could happen if we all united and took care of each other. Given the corruption, anger, and hatred that is so prevalent in the world today, it is nice to see neighbors stand together and take care of each other. We need more of this, and less of the current mess that we have going on. God bless this church for their generosity.
That is going to do it for me. You guys take care and I will chat with you all soon.
