In "Principled Commitment," a Tapestry of Faith program
Affection Connection — Generosity
Extend your exploration of generosity by trying one or more of these activities on your own.
For Individuals: The Question of Money
Money is one of the most powerful and emotion-laden symbols in our culture. Gratitude, generosity, scarcity, abundance — all the issues discussed in this Principled Commitment workshop affect our relationship with money.
Spend some time this week writing about your feelings related to money and how it is used.
For Couples: Sharing Thoughts about Money
After completing the exercise above, share some of your thoughts with your partner. Consider discussing areas in which you disagree on the subject.
For Couples with Children: Counting Our Blessings
In our very busy lives, we often forget to "count our blessings." At dinner or another family meal, go around the table and give each person an opportunity to name one thing she/he is thankful for.
Consider using this simple activity on a regular basis. It can also be used before bed or in individual journaling. The more we think about things we are thankful for, the more we can live with a spirit of abundance rather than scarcity.
