"If the God you believe in as an idea doesn’t start showing up in what happens to you in your own life, you have as much cause for concern as if the God you don’t believe in as an idea does start showing up. It is absolutely crucial, therefore, to keep in constant touch with what is going on in your own life’s story and to pay close attention to what is going on in the stories of others’ lives. If God is present anywhere, it is in those stories that God is present. If God is not present in those stories, then they are scarcely worth telling." ~ Frederick Buechner

TTV 50% SALE: Dog Days of Summer

Ten Thousand Villages is having a "Dog Days of Summer" sale every day this week, with specific items on sale for 50% off.

Today's item is this gorgeous wastebasket made of recycled post-consumer snack bags and candy wrappers using a traditional, Bangladeshi basket-weaving technique. I just love the vibrant colors all woven together. It reminds me of the beautiful diversity of the body of Christ.

Support a fair-trade organization that supports artisans in developing nations all over the globe and get yourself - or someone else - a beautiful piece from their collection!
