Generosity – when have you given or received it?
We think of large, even lavishly energetic acts of extravagance. Those are the ones that get eyeballs and airtime and ink. Those are the ones that attract grants and in-kind help and audiences.
But when you ask followers of Jesus about generosity, you’re likely to get a different answer. We learn about:
…feet anointed and washed
…cups of water and least coins
We asked some of our friends to tell us about a time when they had given or received generosity. The answers, in their own voices and words, will appear in this space.
Generosity Project 2014
These interviews, conducted during October 2014, were conducted, edited, and published by Rev Matt McCaffrey as part of Waterford United Church of Christ’s Generosity Project. We wanted to feature the views of our “friends in faith” — all of whom have interesting things to relate about the generous acts they have experienced in their lives.
The individual audio stories published on this site were collected and published on an audio CD, “Stories of Generosity.” The CD was distributed to our church during November, 2014.
