Government shutdowns . . . What about them?

January 22, 2019 - 1:41pm --

As of the writing of this blog post (1/14/19) we are 24 days into the partial shutdown of our federal government. This is the longest shutdown in U.S. history. The next closest was 21 days in 1995-1996 under President Bill Clinton. I found myself wondering why shutdowns happen, what circumstances lead to them, when have they happened, and how long have they lasted. And, what impact does this have on people, communities, and the economy?

Volunteering at Matthew 25 Ministries provided the staff with an opportunity learn about how a multi-national non-profit serves those in need. The staff also enjoyed some valuable bonding time.
