Who is this for?
You may recognise the importance of Christian giving but would like to reflect more on why it’s important or what we can give or how much we should give. We have probably all heard a sermon on it, or reflected on some of Jesus’ teaching in the parables about talents or money, but this single session (lasting 2 hours including time for coffee) invites us to look again at some of what the Bible teaches and at our response to it as we think about Living God’s Love ‘with generosity and joy, imagination and courage’.
This single 2-hour session can be used in any parish, benefice or deanery setting. It’s for everyone – not just the PCC, or the ‘stewardship team’! It can be delivered locally – perhaps by a member of the clergy or a Reader or a member of the PCC who is familiar with the principles of Christian giving.
It can also be used for Home Groups/Bible Study groups – perhaps over one or two sessions – where the usual leader of the group could facilitate the discussions and take more time for the group to look at and discuss the Bible verses as you work through the material.
