Giving Back

by on October 8th, 2007

You may be wondering, “who is this Kevin” and other such thoughts, so I guess I’ll tell you even if it does ruin the sort of mystery that life tends to thrive on. I’m a resident of Wausau (which I sometimes like to call waubitysaubity for no real reason). I have lived here for just about two years and absolutely love this town. I pastor a small church as well as doing a very tiny bit of contract computer programming. My contributions will primarily focus on issues of faith and social justice, but I might also talk about fishing or the weather or really anything else that I decide I just need to talk about.

One of the things that make life good, and enriches our soul is to do good things for other people. Just think about how much your heart goes “pitter-patter” with joy each time a loved one opens a gift from you. So in the interest of making life good I wanted to bring your attention to two fabulous opportunities to actually make a difference to the lives of actual living people here in Wausau. Your heart might even pitter a little patter.

  1. Saturday October 27th is National Make a Difference Day. This is a chance for you to …wait for it… make a difference. There are two organized ways for you to make a difference on this day, one involves manual labor, and the other not so much manual labor. First you can collect new or gently used winter outerwear for children. The other is to rake leaves for those who can not rake their own.
  2. Secondly, the community Christmas dinner is looking for volunteers. There are all sorts of jobs to do, so you’ll likely find something that will work for you.

If you would like to contribute to either of these smashingly wonderful endeavors you can call me at (715)675-7318 and I’ll connect you with the appropriate person (I don’t want to put their phone numbers on the interweb without their permission).
