« MLK, Africa, U2 and a nine year old | Main | The Economic Stimulus Payment: how will you spend yours? »

April 11, 2008


Hi Tim,

I enjoyed your article regarding "What to do with our rebate checks." It has caused me to think, more deeply, about what my purpose on earth is.



Excellent points regarding the "stimulus" package. I am sorry I missed the faculty prayers meeting where you raised this issue and hope the discussion went in a good direction. I am looking forward to seeing the article getting picked up in the local papers, that should really get some talk buzzing too.

Right now my plans for the stimulus package have been put a little on hold by your thoughts actually. I planned to include it in some home improvements we are working on, but now...
I think it would be a shame to miss this opportunity to both do good with the funds, and teach my family that it is important to do so. Thanks for being the prophet's voice at this time. Blessings on you and your family.
