Firewood and Beer Bottles

Don Tassiah told me yesterday that he once had a revival on a beach in Florida. He asked each person who came to bring a beer bottle. Over 3000 beer bottles were collected, taking 4 city dump trucks to carry them off. Larnell Harris sang and 2000 people were saved.

I am reading Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander by Merton. In it he tells something interesting:

"I write this in the woodshed, surrounded by the charred, sweet-smelling wood of smashed-up whiskey barrels: not ours, naturally. Kegs given to the monks to break up for firewood."

What do we do with the trash in our lives?
