Donating by credit card or check
OK, spending money via the web is some kind of trouble. Especially when you're in a different country. Thus I'd not only encourage VSarkiss's idea but go even further: The maintainers of The Monastery might consider signing up for several pay services and maybe there will be a solution for everyone to give what s/he feels to give in a long list of alternatives linked from the Offering Plate. I know that it is possible to pay from Germany via PayPal but as has been said some people have a strong feeling about that service.
So having several alternatives would help.
Update: Oh, I just noticed that this is my 200th post :-) And that at the edge of Level 9 :-)) Thanks to all the Monks and Monkees for a great community!! :-))
you begin bashing the string with a +42 regexp of confusion
