Gratitude: Generosity: Joy
Worship Leader: Bill Ratcliffe
The fragile spirit of generosity is founded on gratitude and results in joy. Gratitude, generosity and joy are all interconnected and based on a perspective of abundance. Being generous is both intransitive and transitive. There is the intransitive spirit of being generous, which just is. There is no object or conditions for the generosity. Then, there is transitive generosity which has a goal or goals, to which it is directed. Reflect on both the intransitive and transitive aspects of generosity.
The Gratitude: Generosity: Joy dialogue questions/comments are:
1. How do you maintain a perspective of abundance during these difficult times?
2. How do you determine which congregations, organizations and charities receive your volunteer and financial generosity?
3. What can our Unitarian Universalist faith community do to foster a perspective of abundance?
