“And service is our prayer”

I was tickled when my spell-checker tried to make Grameen into sacrament. Grameen, of course, refers to the famous microfinance entity (and by extension, it values) that has made it possible for some of the world’s poorest people to create businesses, and with them an income, security and dignity.

These entities — there are several, the Grameen Foundation USA, Accion International and Oikocredit come to mind — deserve your support as investors and supporters. Please consider them when you make out your 2007 charitable giving.

  1. Much better than when my spell-checker tried to turn “postulancy” (as “in beginning of the ordination process in the Episcopal Church,” not as in “headed for the nunnery”) into “pestilence” ! Though my friends and I laughed ruefully about that one.

    Thanks for the links.
