Sock It T Me!!!!! and 2 Announcements

A parishoner at my church, the Church of the Epiphany, at 1317 G Street in northwest DC recently sent me an e-mail stating that a woman who reads this blog has donated 700 pairs of socks to Epiphany, where much is done to help the homeless. The church didn't have enough storage space for all of them and therefore had some sent to S.O.M.E. (So Others Might Eat), which feeds the homeless and has a number of other programs. It is good to know that my efforts are paying off and helping others. Thanks to the donor, whoever you are.

I also use Facebook and am proud to say that a FB friend named Josh Faulkner has found a way to help the homeless due to advice that I gave him. As it turns out, someone had donated some old, inefficient computers to a homeless shelter. Josh, being a computer specialist, was asked to hook them up. He saw that they weren't worth anything and found some better computers. He has gotten them up and running. Thanks to him, homeless people in and around Pine Mountain, GA can now do on-line job searches and other internet business.

The DC Inter-agency Council on Homelessness (a collaborative of DC Government agencies that are working to end homelessness) will meet at my church on September 2nd from 12:30 PM to 3:30 PM. It is open to the public.

My next blog post will be about "Single-payer, Socialism and the Government Option". It will address the healthcare fiasco and the accusations against Obama for being a Socialist. Just for the record, I'm all for Single-payer and the government option when it comes to insurance. If the government can provide cheap insurance, who cares if they put for-profit insurers out of business?????!!!!!
