I have to admit, there’s something exciting about being generous. I just love watching my kids open gifts at Christmas. I enjoy being able to give money to causes in which I believe. I like to support the ministry that happens at Peace. I love being able to give something away, not because I have to, but because I can. This is generosity. I would guess many of you can relate to this feeling.
In the weeks ahead, you will be hearing more about generosity. Newsletter articles, bulletin inserts, mission moments, letters and more will be used to share the Peace story and our hopes for even more robust ministry next year.
So, in the coming weeks, look for the heading “Building a Culture of Generosity” and please engage the materials. Pray about how you can become more generous. Then, on Intent Sunday, November 14, please bring your intent card with you to declare the generosity that you intend to share with this congregation.
We are blessed to be a generous congregation and I cannot wait to see the ways we continue to be generous in the year to come!
