Harry's School

For those of you who have never visited Father Jake's Blog "Father Jake Stops the World", I would like to recommend it to you. In his post last Friday, Jake turned the blog over to his partner Harry. Harry related his story of attending a clergy retreat which our Presiding Bishop Katherine Jefferts-Schori attended with her husband. Harry wrote a long detailed story about being at the meeting with Katherine and sharing a dinner table with her. To make a delightful story short, Harry asked Bishop Katherine what he should do. In effect he asked her for a charge. And she gave him one, She told him "build a school in Central Tanganyika". She was serious and so was Harry, so, it looks like Harry is going to do his best to see that a school is built in Tanganyika. I think it is a great idea, and I think it would be great if the blogosphere got together and raised the money to build the school. I know that the idea is still in its infancy, but if you're interested I suggest that you check out Father Jake Stops the World and read Harry's story and bookmark the site for further developments. You can find a link to Jake's blog under the links section on the right. I haven't written a comment on the blog itself, but I am ready to contribute something as soon as it gets organized. Here is a great way to do something for those less fortunate than ourselves. Atta boy Harry.

Thanks for the support of this project.

I feel the need to clarify one minor point. Harry's partner is named Wayne. My partner is named Demi.

Harry is a wonderful person, but Demi was not amused to hear he is my partner! ;)
