Give Thanks with a Gift to the Finns
Think of all the troubles you have in the parish - that guy on the board who has never liked you; that gal who digs in her heels every time you talk about God's plan for a male ministerium; the folks who threw a loud fit in the narthex when you wouldn't commune them; add your own here ___________.
Now imagine that on top of all that, you could be taken to criminal or civil court for your stance on some of these issues and have your livelihood drained away from you through the soft tyranny of legal fees. That is what our brothers in Finland are dealing with right now as we noted in this space recently.
Thanksgiving and Advent are coming up - maybe you have not yet decided where to give part of your annual thank offering or alms. Here's a suggestion: donate to the Finn's "fighting fund" so that faithful pastors can pay their legal fees in fighting for Biblical Christianity.
I wish I could just post a PayPal button - but I'm afraid it's a little more complicated than that. You will have to ask your bank to make a wire transfer. If you have online banking, you might be able to use your bill pay option - but call your bank first. The information is below in a letter from Rev. Dr. Timo Laato, which he gave me permission to post here. - +HRC
