Journey of Generosity - We don't want something from you. We want something for you.

A good friend of mine suggested that my wife and I host a Journey of Generosity. I detailed a bit of our experience here. Since, we have been blessed to host three other events with friends. This experience has been life changing.

I was excited this week to be invited to learn to facilitate these types of events for others. We have a few coming up this fall and I am ecstatic. Some of the moments I have shared with my wife through these events over the course of the past year have been among the best moments in our marriage.

One person gives freely, yet gains even more: another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. A generous person will prosper: whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

Proverbs 11:24-25

All Things Great and Small

I had the joy of attending a Journey of Generosity event the other day and as part of the 24 hours participants take 30 minutes to spend time listening. I took the opportunity to get outside and while I sat I looked down and saw the patch of dirt between my feet. The space had a few rocks and flowers and some grasses. From time to time a bug would crawl by. I thought about how you could look at that small space for your entire life and you’d still miss something. Studying the life of the plants and insects contained in that small patch of dirt could entertain a scientist for an entire career.  

This morning in our small group we watched this Louie Giglio video. He describes how big the universe is. You can check out more of his stuff here.

God’s creation is profound on the smallest scale and on the largest scale.

I hope you enjoy the video.
