A Christmas Observation

I have noticed that many of the volunteers who have come here to help in our time of need are Christians organized by their churches, acting on their belief in their responsibility to help anyone in need. The church I was raised in emphasized the responsibility to help other people as a part of a Christian life.

Many of my fellow bloggers have written about their personal Christmas thoughts. Quite a number have expressed their lack of belief. Some have thanked other governments who have given help.

I'd like to thank all of the Christians who have given of their time and money to help us in our time of need. I wish everyone,

A Very Merry Christmas

I, too,have noticed the number of Christian organizations and churches that have volunteered so many hours to helping the victims here. It's nice to hear it mentioned in the Nolasphere.

Happy New Year, Mominem and Her!

I caught a part of a WDSU news report on volunteers coming to New Orleans for Christmas, they picked a Jewish group.

I kind of wonder why, but I didn't see the whole report.

Google "Christian volunteers New Orleans" and numerous stories come up including Catholic, Mennonite and Baptists groups, but none of the stories are local.

It just seems odd to me.
