The Ministry of Bidding On Dog Toys


Yesterday was Cottage Grove’s day to provide items for an auction held in our county called the “Helping Hand Radio Auction”.  All of the proceedes are governed by a board of directors who disperse the money over a wide variety of charities in Henry County.  It is a really cool event that will raise about $250,000 this year.  People donate a variety of things.  My wife, who is a great photographer, ( donated a gift certificate for a free session and an 8×10.  Many people donate FOOD!  Wonderful food!  The kind of food that your grandmother cooked.  The kind of food you would slap your mama to get your hands on!  If you put the cakes I saw yesterday on your head, your tongue would beat your brains out trying to reach them!  I saw four quail sell for $50.00.  A 3lb bucket of PURE PIG LARD sold for $15.00.  Cakes and pies regularly sell for over $30.00.  Frozen farm-raised rabbits sold for $25.00 a piece.  My family attended yesterday’s auction.  We were so enthralled with the bidding we stayed for three hours watching as family members and friends all tried to outbid one another for a good cause.  I was reminded again yesterday that ministry takes place outside of my office.  Ministry happens face to face and one conversation at a time.  It even takes place as you become the high bidder on a basketful of doggy toys, which my two dogs, Ty and Lucy, enjoyed very much.
