A few weeks back my husband and I traveled to Southern California to support and help our friends at With This Ring with their yearly banquet. We really respect what Ali (and her husband Ken) and others have been doing through this ministry of radical giving. When you visit the site, please do watch the video (lower right corner – 5 kleenex warning!).
We donate to several ministries, as well as to the church gatherings that we attend (local community church and house church gatherings) and we give of our time and talent where we see the need. We’re looking forward to supporting a new church plant to Hawaii as our friends study, pray and move toward their dreams – Big Island Faith Communities.
Generosity is a way of life. It is a change in heart.
I encourage y’all to look for ways to give wherever you are. If you don’t have extra dollars in the budget, find a way to support the local youth center or volunteer to teach adults to read at the local library. There are so many ways to give. Invite your husband, family and friends to join you. Spread the generous virus around a bit.
But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you — see that you also excel in this grace of giving. 2 Corinthians 8:7 NIV
Be generous! Lori <><
