I’m excited to offer a new word of encouragement and maybe even instruction that we are calling “Heartbeat of Generosity: Nurturing the Positive Pulse of Giving!” In this bi-monthly newsletter authored by generous spirits from around the United Church of Christ, I hope you will discover encouragement, instruction, and inspiration around what it means to come fully alive in gratitude and generous giving. You likely know as I do that the secret to a joy-filled life is to it extend beyond yourself for the good of others. These newsletters are intended for individuals and congregations to grow in their joy and discover the powerful pulse of a generous heart which is God’s gift to each of us. In addition to each featured article, you will also find announcements about trainings and other inspirational opportunities. I hope you will find this resource encouraging and helpful.

The Heartbeat of Generosity will begin mailing soon! We’ll share a sign-up link in the days to come. 

Blessings all around you!
