Information for the Congregation for Sunday, October 7, 2018

Posted October 5th, 2018

Think generously. Practice generosity. And do so courageously.

Each financial choice you make is a powerful statement of who you are and what you care about. You express your stand in the way you earn money. You express your stand in the way you use money to provide food, clothing, shelter and education. You express your stand in the way you use your money to support others locally, nationally and globally. We each have the power to arrange life so that the stand we take with our money and our life with money is a right-now, every-day, every-week expression of our core values, not a, someday, next-year, or when-I-retire or when-I-have-enough expression of our core values. Every moment of every day there are chances to make a statement with your money; separate yourself from the prevailing drift and use the opportunity the opportunities that arise to deepen our values and become more determined to live by them and articulate them. Whether you do it with one dollar, one one-million dollars, you have the power with your money to break the silence that protects a destructive, scarcity-driven money culture and take a stand for higher human values. Money carries the power and intention we give it. Endow it with your stand. Empower it to change the dream. Leverage your vision, money and life.
