Awakening a Keen Observer

Saturday, October 09, 2004


I was listening to my Ohio State football game, alas not so successful today, and they were saying that there were 100,000 thous in the "horseshoe" where the games are played. When I went to Ohio State there were only 87,thou. Wow that's a lot of people.
Especially when in the counties where I work there are less than 14,000 total population. That's pretty awesome. When I read about the numbers of folks in the central states, between Oklahoma to Canada, being fewer than the people in the LA basin in California, it seems like there are some distribution problems.

What if all those people used the energy they brought to the game to go out into the world and do something good? They've been involved the whole day! What if that energy, and money for the tickets now, was used to build habitat houses? or repaint a soup kitchen, or... you fill in what needs to be done where you are.

It is an awesome thought. And that is just one NCAA game. There were so many played today. What if each of those people gave $10. to their home churches? (that's a couple of cokes and a hot-dog.) Imagine how many people in Florida could be helped.
That would be awesome. What if one Saturday in every NCAA football stadium people were offered the opportunity to give to the most pressing need in the community? Wow. this is an amazing idea.

Each January on Super Bowl Sunday many churches have Souper Bowl events to raise money for the hungry. What if that happened every Saturday or Sunday? Let's think about this? I'm getting dizzy. So let's do it. Let's start the idea.

Be well and happy.

God abide
