Issue #166 – Open Heart. Open Mind. Open Up.
Today’s newsletter is jetlagged hence the tardy Friday arrival. But, we’re back from our travels with a new perspective and a renewed appreciation for the transformative powers of generosity—of spirit, of time, of friendship. This week’s video podcast on The What is a recap of GP’s trip to Africa last week. If you’ve ever been curious about service trips or experiencing the way other people live, this episode is for you. It is also the first day of March, Women’s History Month, and the National Day of Unplugging (sundown-to-sundown March 1-2). We’re going to pack away our screens tonight, catch up on our reading, and be grateful for everything we have. Rabbit! Rabbit!
