Day 2 of Two Hands Working – Filipino Freethinkers for Flooded Filipinos has ended, and we are a happy bunch. From the Church of the Risen Lord to Madasalin Street, we answered the prayers of those who asked for more volunteers or cans of corned beef. Well, some of the prayers at least. The others didn’t pray hard enough.
Thanks to the success of this weekend, Two Hands Working is now an official Social Action project of the FF. We’re working on how to better utilize our resources for more efficient volunteer work, we’re looking into possible donations of books to devastated school libraries, and we’re brainstorming for ideas on how to promote action over dependence on prayer. If you have any suggestions for potential activities for the project, if you would like to take a more active role in the group, or if you have any books (esp children’s books) or school supplies you’d like to donate, contact me through frank AT filipinofreethinkers DOT org.
Thanks to everyone who came over the weekend — Justin who walked through mud, master packers Red, Tin, Tania, Igme and John, and to everyone who put their two hands to work in their own way. Days 3, 4, 5, etc.. begin every time you hear the phrase “Prayer is the best option”. Because we know better.
How many prayers does it take to change a light bulb?
