    And just in time for chocolate/worship Sunday ...



    Churches are now accepting donations through apps ...

    "A new technology has arisen at Easter Sunday service, rendering the collection plate at City Grace Church nearly empty this morning and church treasurer Cathy Lee couldn’t be happier about it.

    The coffers at City Grace, located on East 2nd Street in the Bowery, will now be filling up virtually, as its mainly under-35 congregation logs on to Brooklyn-based FaithStreet’s platform on their smartphones.

    To Lee, 27, using FaithStreet is the natural extension of a life lived on a pocket-sized screen with apps for Uber, Lyft, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.

    “It makes [giving] easier, and if something is easier, someone is more likely to do it,” Lee said. “That has been true for me.”

    Launched four years ago, FaithStreet now has searchable listings for nearly 270,000 houses of worship nationwide on its free online directory, including over 2,200 in the five boroughs, or nearly half of New York City’s churches. FaithStreet, which plans to triple its fundraising platform client base this year to well over 1,000, is competing in a crowded field.

    A quick scan of church Web sites listed in its local directory illustrates the dizzying array of options that local churches are using to solicit donations online, including NYCharities.org, PushPay, Venmo and Network for Good, as well as FaithStreet. Another fast-growing competitor is Tithe.ly, which has more than 4,000 churches using active weekly giving through its platform.

    Virtual-collection-plate platforms take a small cut, typically around 3 percent, of donations.

    It’s a low-overhead business with a feel-good mission. By automating giving, churches can boost donations as much as 30 percent simply by avoiding seasonal dips and missed contributions when parishioners are sick or traveling.

    A new Dunham+Company/Campbell Rinker study shows that in 2017 nearly 75 percent of US churches offered an online giving option, up from just 42 percent in 2015.

    Americans gave $122.9 billion to religious institutions in 2016, according to the latest data from Giving USA.

    These virtual-collection- plate companies face the unique challenge of maintaining the spiritual element of church giving as it moves online.

    To that end, FaithStreet is de-emphasizing the “quick and easy” aspect of its platform, and working to help clients tell the stories of how the money raised benefited their communities.

    “I would say the next [evolution] is less hardware-oriented and more experience-oriented,” FaithStreet co-founder Glenn Ericksen said.

    In Colonial times, churches received public funding; passing the plate became common at the end of the 19th century, which brought peer pressure to the weekly tithing experience.

    Now, at a time of declining church attendance and rising smartphone usage — particularly for financial transactions — religious institutions are adapting to the love affair between technology and money.

    In fact, according to BankRate surveys, 40 percent of consumers carry less than $20 in cash on a daily basis, but more than 60 percent of smartphone users have at least one financial app.

    In the past two years, nearly 60 percent of Tithe.ly’s clients used their mobile phones to give to their houses of worship, donating every day of the week, and at all times of day. Mobile payments overall in the US soared 72 percent, to $187.8 billion, in 2017, according to Juniper Research.

    “The main benefit [of FaithStreet] is the automated giving feature … which is helpful for churches — you don’t have a cash-flow issue,” said City Grace Church’s lead pastor, Benjamin Spalink.

    But while a better angel beckons in the form of technology that easily allows parishioners to fund everything from firewood for widows to heat their homes in winter, to Thanksgiving dinners for struggling families (as FaithStreet says its customers have done), devils may lurk in the data.

    Facebook’s Cambridge Analytica scandal and a string of high-profile payment-card data breaches in recent years have raised awareness of risks.

    Officials at FaithStreet and Tithe.ly say they maintain strict protocols to thwart attempted breaches, and don’t sell user data.

    To foster growth, FaithStreet has added a new feature called “campaigns” for specific causes, which Lee expects her church will use when raising funds for an annual trip to Haiti.

    Tithe.ly plans to roll out a payment app for transactions made in church coffee shops or bookstores.

    Tithe.ly Chief Executive Officer Dean Sweetman, a former pastor at an Atlanta-based megachurch, expects the majority of religious donations to be made online by 2023.

    If that happens, City Grace’s Lee, for one, won’t mind.

    “I think it’s kind of cool not to pass a plate,” she said. “It’s more discreet.”"

    Meanwhile ...


    Good ol’ American bald eagle lands on wrong baseball player

    MINNEAPOLIS — "The biggest challenge for Seattle left-hander James Paxton at Minnesota’s home opener came even before he started pitching on the 38-degree afternoon.

    Paxton was standing alone in left field at Target Field, taking a break from his warmup throws for the pregame ceremony Thursday. That’s when a bald eagle, brought in for a flight over the playing field prior to the national anthem, apparently became confused.

    Rather than soaring to the mound to reach his summoning handlers, the bird’s path went toward Paxton, causing him to jerk his body backward to avoid being grazed. Then the eagle, named Challenger, landed in the grass before circling back to find a perch on Paxton’s right shoulder. One of the trainers hustled out to lure the bird safely away.

    A truly patriotic sight — for Paxton, who is Canadian. The 29-year-old is from Ladner, British Columbia.

    Minnesota fans, meanwhile, might have seen enough of eagles, too. The Vikings lost to the Eagles in the NFC title game in January, then had the Eagles win the Super Bowl in Minneapolis in February."

    When life gives you lemons ...

    From "Breaking Bad"



    "I have spent my whole life scared, frightened of things that could happen, might happen, might not happen, 50-years I spent like that. Finding myself awake at three in the morning. But you know what? Ever since my diagnosis, I sleep just fine. What I came to realize is that fear, that’s the worst of it. That’s the real enemy. So, get up, get out in the real world and you kick that bastard as hard you can right in the teeth." – Walter White

    Mark Zuckerberg ... Testifying before Congress

    April 10, 2018

    "Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg sat in a big-boy seat on Tuesday — as he used a height-boosting cushion during his grilling before the Senate.

    The 5-foot-7 executive squirmed in a chair that included a 4-inch-thick pad under his behind while being blasted for hours with questions from lawmakers about his social network’s handling of user data.

    “Mark Zuckerberg’s chair on Capitol Hill has a nice big extra cushion,” tweeted The Washingtonian, which first noticed the seat booster.

    A rep from Facebook said the cushion was not the billionaire’s private seat, but was provided by the Senate Judiciary Committee.

    “That’s the committee’s standard practice,” a company spokesperson told The Post."

    A great review and summation of the current national mess ... Annoyed  

    "The Octopus of Global Control"

    Charlie Robinson Interview with Jeff Rense


    The Octopus of Global Control is a controversial, nonfiction book detailing how those in positions of power are able to manipulate society for their benefit, why they believe that they are entitled to impose their warped world view of reality on mankind, and how we can break free from their grip.

    The eight tentacles of control that are wrapped around humanity are the Military, Governmental, Covert, Physical, Financial, Media, Spiritual, and Scientific. The book tackles topics such as uncovering the Deep State, false flag terror events, the media’s role in manufacturing wars, the 9/11 deception, the fraud of central banking, our broken education system, the use of religion to shape society, and the corrupted medical industry.

    The Octopus of Global Control footnotes these important events by featuring quotes and first-hand observations from over 500 witnesses and participants that were involved in the most important events in our history. Their words add context and help to paint the picture of these historic events by explaining who these people were, what they said, why it matters, and what actually happened.

    The author, Charlie Robinson, accomplishes the seemingly impossible task of blending the seriousness of these topics, and the respect they deserve, with dark humor, sarcasm and wit, that allow the reader to laugh at the preposterous while grasping the importance of these lessons.
