9:25 am - 1:00 pm
Talking about money and giving isn’t something which comes naturally to many of us. Add religion into the mix and we’d probably talk about almost anything else, especially when it comes to standing up in church and preaching about it.
Jesus wasn’t shy about talking about money and possessions; about half of the parables speak to further his generosity, such as turning water into abundant wine, to show us that Jesus’ giving is something to shout about.
This seminar will help you preach on generosity with confidence. A Bible study will consider a theology of generosity, we will look at how to inspire generosity and there will be a chance to listen and talk about actual sermons.
