A few days back an e-mail was sent to me about a parish priest in Port Moresby who is happy to lend-out parishioner's tithes to some of his closest friends. It wasn't mentioned whether it's on a 30-day term, interest bearing or otherwise.
For the naive many this is an apt example of generosity and charity akin to sheltering the homeless, feeding the hungry and caring for the sick. It is not! Easing-up your friends' parching cash flow from the flock's offering to dear Mother Church is a totally different banana.
Speaking of bananas...
Guys, what's your take on this (the financing scheme--not the banana)?
