Closed Minds and Hearts

On Friday, someone abandoned a dog at the Park. Tied him or her up to the railing and left. It wasn't obvious at first, because there are numerous signs saying that dogs are not allowed in the Park because it is environmentally sensitive, so quite possible a person could have tied up their dog and gone for a walk, odd, but possible.
By the time anyone realised what was going on, the dog had chewed through the lead it was tied with, and run off. I thought it was unbelievable enough when I found the abandoned guinea pig, but a dog....

Our church has been used as a homeless shelter during the extreme weather we have had this year. It is now the only designated homeless shelter in the city, the Sally-Anne, which was used only for men, is now to be just for transients. But the City refuses to build a shelter, because......the city councillors refuse to believe there is a problem. When invited to the church to see the homeless sleeping there during the snow, they wouldn't come. There are none so blind as those who will not see. Now we have to think onwards towards next winter.

My friend Margaret had a white chocolate 'Last Supper' that she'd been given. Somehow none of us wanted to eat one of the Apostles.

I received an e-mail from Ikea who are just increasing in awesomeness. They are now no longer even going to sell plastic bags, starting tomorrow, Earth Day. They rock so hard. More stores should follow suit.

Surely there'd be no guilt in having a nibble at Judas, as it were!

Poor Judas, badly thought of my generations and now you want me to chomp his head off! ;)

I'm sure he'd sacrifice some head for the the Lord.
I know I would and, occasionally, do!
