Quote of the Week

Wesley was equally clear that simply earning and saving can, in fact, become an impediment to “going on to perfection” as a follower of Christ unless these practices become the means by which we move toward “a farther end,” which is a life of Christ-centered generosity in which we find joy in giving all we can.


Harnish, James A.. Earn. Save. Give. . Abingdon Press. Kindle Edition.


Weekly Prayer

Generous and giving God, we have explored, shared, learned, and questioned together. Thank you. Help us to take the lessons from this time into our lives so that people can see your love alive in us. Open us to your presence and power and to one another as we seek to earn, save, and give—to love—in grateful response to your extravagant generosity. In Christ’s name, we pray. Amen.
