I really do want to talk about clutter and space …and shall. I’ve just finished a write up of the largest space I’ve worked on yet – the process was very familiar- just bigger! I was asked to go through our church and make note of ALL the nooks and crannies/ closets and hallways and compile a sort of inventory of the varieties of stuff that have collected over the years. We are going to have a “Mission Organize” day on March 17th and this is preparation for that.
But before I stop talking about the world I want to share this follow up from Avaaz.org, the group I wrote about last posting. This is what they are saying now:
“…George Bush is asking the US Congress for funds to ESCALATE his war. On 17 February Congress will sit in judgment: it’s the first concrete chance for a change of course. Congress can demand a real plan to end this conflict, they have the power. Opposition is rising in the USA and round the world. 45000 of us published our ad in a Capitol Hill paper. 90,000 of us from 198 countries joined a virtual Global Peace March: hundreds of thousands of US citizens marched for peace, we carried flags from dozens of countries and banners saying citizens around the world marched with them.”
You can still sign the petition. They have 92,168 signatures from 198 countries and are hoping to have 100,000 before Feb 17th.
