ECF Vital Practices: Practicing Generosity October Articles
Sharing – and by extension generosity – are skills that get easier with practice.
The beginning of the new program year seems to be the right time for ECF Vital Practices to share all we’ve been collecting related to generosity. Since September we have been sharing stories, resources, and best practices from congregations and congregational leaders who have adopted the practice of generosity.
New articles for October that address the theme of Practicing Generosity are:

She currently serves on the Standing Committee for the Diocese of Ohio.
