Taking It Home, Workshop 2: The Meaning of Money in Our Lives

In "The Wi$dom Path: Money, Spirit, and Life," a Tapestry of Faith program

What you are now is what you have been, what you will be is what you do now. — The Buddha

Invite older family members to tell a favorite story about money from their childhood. Reflect with them on the similarities and differences between generations with regard to money.

Create a journal to track your discretionary spending (the things you choose to spend money on rather than the things you must pay for). Each time you make a choice about how to spend your money, record it in the journal and reflect on how your spending does or not does not align with your values. What patterns or trends do you see over a month, six months, or a year?

Consider a request you have received for a charitable donation. How does the organization or project align with your values? Your money dreams? Your Unitarian Universalist theology? How does that alignment (or lack of alignment) influence your decision about making the requested donation?

This work is made possible by the generosity of individual donors and congregations. Please consider making a donation today.
