Adventures in Generosity

The occasionally coherent ramblings of a Stewardship Advisor in the Church of England

Ahhhhhh that’s better

 The reason I am a follower of Jesus Christ is simply this. In him I see what God means by humanity, and what humanity means by God. For ever self-giving, and donating his power. Doing for us that which we couldn’t do for ourselves. Immersing himself in our humanity and rescuing us from shame, pollution and transience. Dying for us, without us, and with us. It is in his death on the Cross that God discloses the essence of what it is to be God: self-sacrifice and not self-assertion. This is the right way to get involved and not merely participate.

Thank you Bishop Sentamu
