Rev. Terry Sweetser writes, "At the heart of Unitarian Universalism is the faith that every person can make a meaningful difference in our communities and in the world. We have faith in generosity, a conviction that our shared gifts of love and labor can heal ourselves and others.
"Spent one way, [money] can make us comfortable, boost our self-image, and make us feel secure," writes Sweetser. "Spent another way, money becomes the tool of our faith and our commitment to the things that matter to us."
These inspiring stories of giving and generosity in Unitarian Universalist congregations illustrate the ways in which faith and money can achieve good on the local, state, and national level.
