MCCDC: FOUNDATION OF GENEROSITY

A foundation is critical to the stability of the home. Without it, the earth and sand may shift under the beams and joists and floorboards and, no matter how lovingly and beautifully they have been constructed or how carefully placed, they will not hold. The foundation is meant to support the full load of the building built upon it. And much of the strength of a building lies in its foundation, whether for the ordinary lasting through time or to withstand calamity, such as earthquake and strong wind.

Generosity is such a foundation in more than one way. A home built upon a strong and generous bedrock rests on a solid structure and might be built tall, story upon story, soaring into the clouds. And generosity is such a fine and solid basis on which to build that it might even support an imperfect frame. It may absorb some of the blow in disaster to hold up even an immature structure.

Jesus understood the importance of generosity; it is central to many of his teachings and healings. Give everything, he said, to people who cannot pay you back. Give to everyone who asks. Give to your enemies, though it may defy your sensibility. Give on the sabbath, though it may break the law. Throw the seed on all the soil, willy nilly, wantonly, foolishly. No need to be strategic. The table is for all the people, without exception, without exclusion. Let go. Let go. Let go and let God.

Join us on Sunday as we continue to explore the importance and the challenge of generosity centered on the Psalm, “Unless God builds the
house, the builders labor in vain.” Our home is incomplete without you.

~Rev. Miller Hoffman

MCCDC will host a Spiritual Writing Workshop on Saturday, November 9, 1:30- 4:00 pm. All are welcome (but please register in advance if possible).

Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Robin Hawley Gorsline, Writer-Theologian in Residence at MCCDC, the session will focus on liturgical (worship) writing-prayers, invocations, calls to worship, contemporary psalmody and more.

We will engage in some exercises during our time with plenty of time for your creative writing and discussion with each other. Also, feel free to bring a piece already in process.

A light lunch/snacks will be available, but feel free to share as you can, including beverages.
