Yes, Mike, I'm all for your suggested type of gift giving! Or vice versa - how about asking for those gifts when people ask if there's anything they can get us for our birthday/ Christmas?

Oxfam have a similar gift giving scheme. (See www.oxfamunwrapped.com.) Last year someone in our office organised that instead of spending money on Christmas cards for each other, we'd donate our £2 to Oxfam, and we ended up being able to buy a few goats and a cow and some chickens. I thought it was a great idea.

Psalm 103:12 says,"As far as the east is from the west so far has he removed our transgressions from us." What does this mean? How far is the east from the west? If one were to start at the North Pole and travel south, they would eventually end up in the South Pole. This is a measurable distance. But if one were to start travelling west they would never arrive at a point called East; you could never say that you have arrived at the East Pole; it is an inmeasurable distance. So it is with God's forgiveness; it is infinite.

Mike D.
