Generous Matters

“I learned what I must have forgotten somewhere in my busy, well-planned, and very ‘useful’ life. I learned that everything that is, is freely given by the God of love. All is grace. Light and water, shelter and food, work and free time, children, parents and grandparents, birth and death — it is all given to us. Why? So that we can say gracias, thanks: thanks to God, thanks to each other, thanks to all and everyone.”

Christine Pohl,  Associate Provost and Professor of Church in Society at Asbury Theological Seminary, fromLiving Into Community: Celebrating Practices That Sustain Us
