FB acquaintance goes on an annual mission trip to Haiti, changes her profile picture every 5 hours to a new one of her with a disadvantaged child. Hashtags everything #soblessed. Loves to give the kids credit for teaching her so much and bringing her closer to Jesus.
I used to supervise and coordinate volunteers working in rebuilding New Orleans and the amount of time and hoops I had to go through to schedule around their prayer meetings and self reflection was nauseating. The best group of volunteers we had come through were a bunch of retired military dudes who knew this was more important than their personal feelings journey.
You can still get the feel goods about it while actually accomplishing something.
This curmudgeon-y post brought to you by my friend who is late picking me up to go have fun and my only having drank one cup of coffee.
