Do Not Worry-Matthew 6:25
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothes?
Sunday we kick off our Generosity Initiative. A team of individuals from the church have been intentionally working behind the scenes to build the foundation of our initiative. Many have attended a gathering in order to share their own experience of Unity and their hopes and dreams for the future. More gatherings are planned so if you have not attended one or have not been invited contact one of the ministers to get your personal invitation to one of the future gathering.
When the Board first began the process of developing the campaign we were impressed with the eventual consulting firm we hired in part because of the language they used. Instead of a capital campaign, the typical terminology for this type of endeavor they called it a generosity initiative. Instead developing a campaign to meet the needs of the organization through a capital campaign (seems to have a consciousness of lack, not enough, and needs) they instead sought to raise the consciousness of abundance and generosity. Their attitude is we already are prosperous and generous and to seek to expand that consciousness.
The goal of the initiative is not to get generosity from you (money) but rather to seek generosity for you. To raise the consciousness of generosity and abundance that is already present. To give, generously, from a place of gratitude for all we have and all we seek to become. Our goal is to encourage everyone to actively participate, at the level appropriate for them and to be an active agent of change and transformation through your gift.
