House of Abraham
On Wednesday I'm going to be participating in a prayer breakfast to launch the Habitat for Humanity Indianapolis House of Abraham project. Depending on how much funding can be raised, Muslim, Jewish, and Christians of various denominations are getting together this summer to build 1 or 2 houses for people in need. I'm very excited about this project -- we need any and every thing that can bring people together working for good. One) because good needs to be done, Two) because there are too many people who need help in this world, and Three) because we need to establish real contacts and relationships with one another.
I'm sure similar projects are going on around the country. Too bad it's so hard to find out the good news.
One really cool interfaith group I did find out about is an interfaith baking circle
in Atlanta. I absolutely adore the idea of women coming together to cook, and break bread together, and share their faith and their lives.
It reminds me of the Triptee slogan -- changing the world one bakesale at a time.
