man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or
under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
II Corinthians 9:7
"I do not believe we can settle how much we ought to give. I'm afraid the only safe way is to give more than we can spare." C.S. Lewis

Sharing brings joy! The phrase rolls easily off the tongue, but it is no trite clichť! Rather, it expresses profound spiritual truths truths about a loving and caring God truths about a joyous generosity that circles Ďround and dances into and through the human experience as we relate to others and to the Holy One! This year concludes our One Great Hour of Sharing three-part emphasis on this dynamic theme.
Sharing brings joy to us. Generous giving, practiced as a regular spiritual discipline, teaches us about joy. We learn to see ourselves as vital parts of a cooperative sharing effort which expresses Godís love for the world. We see the delight of recipients and experience our own gladness. Grateful for Godís extravagant gifts, the great happiness of others, and our own experience of such delight, we discover we want to be more generous, and so we are drawn into the circular rhythm of sharing that brings joy upon joy.
Sharing brings joy to others. For 64 years, recipients of One Great Hour of Sharing assistance, relief, and support have known comfort and joy through your sharing:
March - America for Christ Offering
June - One Great Hour of Sharing
October - World Mission Offering
December - Retired Ministers and Missionaries Offering
