If you are looking for a good cause to which to donate, the Integrities Foundation is one of many. For $15.00, you receive their wonderful publication. The address is IF, 160 Sunflower Lane, Watsonville, CA 95076. The phone number is 831-724-5526. Donations are tax-deductible. Some things they do are help provide land for houses for poor people in Guatemala, support women's soup kitchens in Peru, "give a voice to grassroots leaders who speak for the poor of the world," and "facilitate networks of ecology, justice, and peace."

I pull from and quote from their Journal 19, No. 1 2006.

"Historian-philosopher Rosenstock-Huessey felt that we are called to put together a world that keeps falling apart. "Every generation," he wrote, "has the divine liberty of recreating the world."

He viewed social crisis and disintegration as a wake-up call. "Social disintegration is a blessing in disguise because it compels us to wake up!"

In the aftermath of the First World War, Rosenstock declared that Europe had to become a community of people or else destroy itself. He spoke prophetically. The European Union that we know today came of out of worlds falling apart and finally being rebuilt.

Our ability to create a different future is the divine spark in humanity. "God's specific quality in us is the ability to overcome the established forms of mind and body and create a new future.""

They suggest searching out reliable sources of information.  Check http://news.google.com, and the London Guardian at http://www.guardian.co.uk/worldlatest, and sign up at http://democracynow.org for a daily digest of the news sent to your email address.  They also suggest reading The Nation which has been with us since the Abolition Movement and the Civil War.  The Nation is on-line at http://www.thenation.com/.  Enjoy!

We know what we have spent on the Iraq War.  In Belize, children need pencils.  A young man from El Salvador who learned to carve water birds said he never saw a pencil until he was fifteen.  Does it seem like the world's resources are not evenly spread?   Perhaps a contribution to IF can help.
