Chances are, you’ve noticed the blue square that has been popping up on Compassion materials in the last year or so. I know that I have pondered the meaning behind it on several occasions.
Well, this weekend, the mystery was solved!
“For Compassion, The Corner is a powerful depiction of Leviticus 23:22 and a continual reminder to always “leave a corner.” It reminds us of who we are and what we do as advocates for children in poverty.”
“When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and the alien. I am the Lord your God.”
I also have a giveaway for my faithful readers today!
Last Friday, there was a merchandise table set up and I picked up this shirt in a size Medium.
On Saturday, I found a different Compassion tee in a women’s fitted style and I brought that home, too. On Sunday, I washed and dried both tees and *then* realized that I really don’t wear tees like the blue one above.
So, I would like to give it away. (It was unworn by me, just washed and dried!) Realizing that a size Medium tee isn’t going to fit everyone, I also have a copy of Unshaken: Rising from the Ruins of Haiti’s Hotel Montana by Dan Wooley to give away if the drawing winner doesn’t want the tee.
