Consider these reflection questions from Activity 3:
- What does faithful giving mean for you? Are there cultural, religious, or family values that influence what faithful giving means to you?
- Maya Angelou said, “I have found that among its other benefits, giving liberates the soul of the giver.” In your experience, how have you been transformed by giving? Has giving liberated your soul? If so, in what way?
- Do your personal stories of giving portray of a depth of generosity? If not, why not? Is there a way to reframe those stories so that they do?
- Are there limits to what you can or should give in a particular situation? Do your personal giving stories reflect any tension about this question?
Record your responses in your journal and/or share them with your co-facilitator or another trusted conversation partner. Consider how you might share parts of your own giving story with workshop participants to stimulate conversation and encourage participants to delve deeply into their own stories.
