Thank you so much Deb, Evan and Paul for this gathering. I must tell you that these appear to come around and give me so much energy just when I think: ... I do not know what I am doing. Intents are down (although more giving is present). Etc. Etc. and then we do this and in less than one hour my spirit is recharged. God’s spirit gives me clarity. And I am reminded that God is God and I am not ... and today is a new day with new ministry opportunities. ~ Pr. Nicole Ferry, Bethlehem Lutheran, Los Alamos, NM
When we approach fundraising in a spirit of gratitude, we do so knowing that God has already given us what we most need for life in abundance.
~ Henri Nouwen, A Spirituality of Fundraising
