On Giving | Reflections and Resources for Pre-Generous Parishioners
Available for pre-order. Ships in August.
From the Stillspeaking Writers' Group comes a candid resource about financial giving in congregations.
- Trying to decipher your church's lingo about money? Read Quinn Caldwell's glossary.
- Wondering if the Bible provides one definitive instruction on tithing? (Spoiler alert: it doesn't.) Check out Mary Luti's overview of biblical texts about giving.
- Angry about your church's use of financial gifts? Kaji Douša helps you evaluate your grumpy giving.
- Ready to throw tithing out the window altogether? Donna Schaper is with you!
With their usual wit and spiritual depth, the Stillspeaking Writers' Group encourages churchgoers' honest consideration of financial support to their congregation ... and provides a few blunt stewardship tips to pastors as well.
On Giving is not only a resource for stewardship season -- it's a great booklet for new members, confirmation classes, finance committees, and families teaching children the value of giving.
