October 3, 2022 – Rev. Barbara Threet – Giving, Not Giving, and How It All Feels

Posted by Tim on October 3, 2022

As individuals and as a church we are often asked for various kinds of assistance. How do we decide when to give directly, or indirectly, or not at all? And how do we process the confusion of feelings and circumstances that often result in such requests?

How can these last many months inform us going forward?
