I’ve been fortunate to hear many people’s stories of how they learned to be generous. Stories of kitchen tables and piles of cash. Stories of pigs, rabbits and allowances paid in dimes. And people who grew up not knowing about giving at all.
My forthcoming book is inspired by the many generous people I’ve met. I hope that hearing stories about giving will help churches talk about money.
Jesus talks about money; we can too!
We can all be generous in some way, including sharing our stories.
