Philbb: FTFA: He says today is the best day of the year to share with others.I don't know about that. This time of year most food banks, charities, and soup kitchens are overflowing with volunteers and donations because of the holidays. The lean times are at other times of year when people are less likely to think about charity and helping their fellow man. I do my volunteering with things like this in late spring, midsummer, and early autumn. That is partly for my own comfort so I don't have to deal with the crowds that show up to help during the holiday season.But other than that this is so very awesome. I wish more of us would follow this example around the world. Find a group that you can support in your community and go make a difference to real people. Volunteer, donate, or just help get the word out.
fusillade762: before midday (AEST)Wait, what time is that?
RealFarknMcCoy2: I think he meant "share the day with others", as in, spend time with others.../heard him on the radio yesterday with the quote in the headline and I laughed out loud. Seriously, a Reverend who swears and makes jokes about Christmas - cool guy.
Philbb: I don't mean to detract from anything that Reverend Graham Long says. I agree with him wholeheartedly. As I said in my post, I was only talking about the one sentence. I just wanted to mention that those who are in need are still in need at other times of the year. I agree with you that Reverend Graham Long is an actual hero in our society.
Ed Finnerty: FTFA: "There are people from every strata, really, we just say don't be alone," he said.That's all fine and dandy until the Hawk People show up.Seriously, good on them.
