ECAUSE OF GENEROUS readers like you, we have met our recent fundraiser goal. We could not be more grateful to those who donated. Thank you!
Here’s a link I created this morning with potential to greatly reduce our need for fundraisers—at no cost to our readers:
Whenever you buy something from AMAZON, click on that link to begin your search and Watershed will automatically receive 0.5% of whatever you buy!
I just bought something from Amazon, and tell me this is not a supremely rewarding message. This process will never expire…so please BOOKMARK that URL. We are in your debt!
OR THE RECORD, I loathe dealing with the financial side of Watershed. I’d much rather be writing articles, making recordings, posting scans, corresponding with our readers, and so forth. But Watershed is a 100% volunteer organization—none of us gets paid—so somebody has to do it or we perish.
Fr. Michael Irwin used to talk about the future. He said that as a newly-ordained priest in the 1950s, nobody wanted to be assigned to a cranky old priest—but God doesn’t allow us to see the future. Shortly after ordination, Fr. Irwin was indeed assigned to such a priest. I’ll never forget his verdict: “Thank God we cannot see the future, because I might not have chosen to be a priest.” Similarly, if I’d realized all the work Watershed would require—especially the financial stuff—I might have decided not to be part of it. I would have deeply regretted this, so I’m glad God does not let us see the future.
