Why You Should Visit “The Laurel Bed”

My lovely friend Kaitlin has a blog called The Laurel Bed.  She is a 2010 corps member here in Memphis and she puts my English teaching skills to shame.  She’s really stinking fantastic.  Seriously, I pretty much want to be her when I grow up.  She doesn’t update very often, but I always enjoy it when she does.

You should particularly read this post about her recent trip to Haiti.

And then you should stop and pray.

And then you should spend a chunk of time thinking about how you are spending your time, talents, and money and if any of that needs to change at all.  Whose kingdom are you building – yours or God’s?  Whose kingdom do you want to be building?

And then you should pray some more.

And maybe open the Scriptures and read about Jesus’ love for the poor, outcast, and downtrodden.

I should do those things too.

And while you are doing those things, you should listen to Nathan and the Loverlies new album.  You can get it here for whatever price you want to pay.  The songs are basically just scripture set to music and all proceeds go to support the Nelson Children’s Center in Denton, TX.

Have a lovely Friday evening.
