7 Quick Takes Friday (set #38)

7 Quick Takes Friday

This week: People who understand their obligation to the poor taking action at the local market. The miracle of life. A great campus ministry promo.

On the plus side, it is incredibly romantic and a beautiful, loving gift to the bride. On the down side, the importance and presence of God is minimized. For Catholics, it does not have to be an either / or. Your comments are always welcome!

Some random thoughts or bits of information are worthy of sharing but don’t warrant their own full post. This idea was started by Jennifer Fulwiler at Conversion Diary to address this blogging need. So, some Fridays I too participate when I have accumulated 7 worthy items. Thank you Jen for hosting this project!
