Week of 9/21/14 to 9/27/14

How we’re living:

Being fair isn’t easy – especially, on public issues like unemployment.  Action on fair hourly rates and aid to the unemployed begins in the heart of each one of us.  A wise person said we are made to love and to work.  Put both together in your heart as you think out where you stand on public issues about jobs.  Then you are ready to talk with others.  [Suggested by Matthew 20:1-16]
