The ManPower of the Faithful

When this fundraiser was brought to my attention, I was moved.  The heart of it is to raise funds for this man to attend a Christian men’s conference (ManPower 2012).  The part that you would not see is that the person who started the fundraiser, a long time friend of the beneficiary, could use more than a few blessings herself.  She started it for her friend, independent of her own needs, because she believed that what he set out to do was right and good for him as well as all who are around him.

The selflessness of this act brought me into reflection.  We spend a lot of time talking about what people should do and how they should behave.  Is it right and good for us to look at others and their behaviors if we do not do as much for ourselves?  Only you can answer that question for you.  I just wanted to share something that moved me, with you.


About carpebootium

I am a modern-day pirate. I travel the world and trade in today's currency, information. I sail through opportunity, comedy, history and strategy to turn turbulent into tournament, chaotic into cathartic, and embarrassing into emboldening. There are none who should fear me save two: Those who have what I want and those who get in my way. Are you done sailing your calm waters with strong undertow? Have you your fill of empty treasure and oasis destinations? Well good...come and join my crew! We're a lively lot from all over the world but be forewarned...anyone attempting to drop anchor will be thrown overboard, shot, harpooned and then marooned on an isle of cannibals. We move on! If you are ready...welcome aboard the Carpe Bootium!
