In "The Wi$dom Path: Money, Spirit, and Life," a Tapestry of Faith program
Referring to the lists created in Activity 1, introduce "special money." Say:
"Special money" is money we designate, or earmark, for a particular use, limit to particular users, or categorize differently based on its source or intended purpose. Earmarking has gained a negative reputation in our sociopolitical discourse. Here, however, we are going for a broader understanding of the term.
Ask participants to review the newsprint lists of congregational inflow and outflow and identify areas where "special money" comes into play in congregational life. Invite participants to consider how earmarking can be used as a tool to intentionally direct the flow of congregational money toward a larger purpose.
