A Spirituality of Fundraising (Kobo eBook)
One of the most popular spiritual writers of our time shares his wisdom on fundraising. Christian leaders often feel uneasy about asking others for money. Rather than viewing fundraising as a necessary but unpleasant task in supporting spiritual endeavors, Henri Nouwen asserts that fundraising is a ministry. The question that Christians must explore is their relationship with money and whether they find security in God or their possessions. Drawing on many lessons from scripture, Nouwen emphasizes that individuals must drawn to a common vision in order to feel generous about giving to a fundraising effort. The act of fundraising involves not only the gift of money to a common goal but also the gifts of involvement, energy, and prayer for a common mission.
