Giving: Growing Joyful Stewards in Your Congregation volume 20 is titled “Live Courageously”. It is the fourth in a four-year series based on I Timothy 6:18-19: “They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.” “Live Courageously” also focuses on Psalm 31:24: “Be strong and take courage, all you who wait for the Lord.”
Giving volume 20 is packed with many outstanding reflective and practical articles to encourage generous giving and faithful stewardship. Articles and writers include:
- “Take a Risk” by David King, Director of the Lake Institute on Faith and Giving;
- “Change the Dream”, an excerpt from the book The Soul of Moneyby Lynne Twist;
- “Break the Yoke” by Glen Guyton, recently called to serve as the Executive Director of Mennonite Church USA;
