Join us in our Facebook Book Club to discuss a book about financial stewardship – Not Your Parents’ Offering Plate by J. Clif Christopher. The book was recently revised with updated material in 2015. At 113 pages, it is a shorter book that will make good reading in February before the Lenten season begins. Please purchase the book now from a place you choose. Your cost can be reimbursed to you from our Lilly funds by emailing your receipt to Carla Klawitter at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Christopher outlines a new context which we find ourselves where people are giving as much as ever, but less is being given to religious organizations. He wants to help us operate better in a context where we compete for the dollars people are willing to give. Each chapter ends with questions which will make good fodder for our Facebook discussion. The book also pushes us toward acting differently in our role as leaders. Each chapter ends with a list of things to do and the last and longest chapter is entitled “The Top Eleven Things I Would Do Now.”
We desire to start the reading on Jan. 30. We will read through the book at a pace set by our facilitator Pastor Erik Karlson who will moderate the discussion. If you are new to our Facebook Book Club, you can join the group by clicking here.
