• Immediate Needs

    We do what we do as missionaries supported by people like you.

    We also prefer to give away as much content as we can, and not cloud that issue with a lot of public requests. That said, we do have specific needs that are met by people who believe the work we do has value.

    If you'd like a short list of immediate financial needs, you can find it HERE.

    Thanks!

A Prayer Room Divided.

The US once divided into North and South. The North had factories and the South had okra. Although the breach was repaired, this dynamic pretty much remains true today.

Cincinnati has it’s east and west sides. If you’re an east sider, you take your first million and build a house and buy a BMW. If you’re a west sider, you hide it in your mattress. Or so I’ve been told.

The prayer room has it’s left side and it’s right side. There’s also a middle section – prayer moderates, if you will, although that group is in constant flux and most people eventually declare a section on one side or the other.

I’ve been a left sider for years, but this morning finds me on the right side. It’s a pretty interesting experience. There is a little place tucked away behind a corner that is 10db quieter and there is almost no chance of being run over during a rapid fire prayer stampede. I was actually greeted by a right sider who welcomed me. If they offer me a signing bonus (and a guarantee on this seat), I’d consider switching for real.

  1. Right-siders are for sure nicer and a bit more docile and sweet as a general rule. The left-siders (myself included) are a crusty, territorial bunch that doesn’t appreciate incursions by those looking to switch and / or declare a side.

    When Justin Rizzo switched over months ago all were fairly bitter and stared him down for quite a while, hoping to shame him into relocating. No such luck – he integrated himself, against all odds. On the flip side, the right-siders would have thrown him a party and considered it an honor to have him amongst their ranks.

    Bah.

    On the flip side, I find that I can’t even pray when I venture over. I think my fate is inextricably linked to a left side perspective.

  2. So what do you call someone who vows to never sit in the same place twice?

  3. Shari – uh, reactionary religious spirit? 🙂
