"I'm what the world considers to be a phenomenally successful man. And I've failed much more than I've succeeded. And each time I fail, I get my people together, and I say, "Where are we going?" And it starts to get better." - Calvin Trager
to Cecily Stewart, Emily Bloemker, Ryan Wallace, Emily Biagioni and Steve Scharre who showed up for Habitat for Kinmanity II at the new house (and to Andrew Langan, who was there for hours for HFK I several weeks back). Thanks to this mighty crew, we got the walls of the master bedroom completely clean of wallpaper and glue (and almost all the mold), moved all the boxes from the dining room to rooms on the second floor (making room for the floor refinishers to come), tore all the carpet and padding in the house (except for the boys' room) and took it out to the garage, ripped up all the wood strips that held the carpet in place at the baseboards (don't mess with Steve and a crowbar), and pulled about 9 billion staples out of the wood floors that had been holding the carpet pad in place.
Anyway, the company was great and the work you all did was phenomenal. It would have taken me all week to get all that done by myself. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

"Christ's example is being
demeaned by the church if they ignore the new leprosy,
which is AIDS. The church is the sleeping giant here.
If it wakes up to what's really going on in the rest
of the world, it has a real role to play. If it doesn't,
it will be irrelevant."
