Generosity Abounds


Our God is a generous, pouring out love on us through out our lives. How sadly we often live unaware of this bounty but once our eyes are opened we see it everywhere. And we too begin to live in a spirit of generosity.

Two months ago a member of Trinity asked if we would be interested in partnering with Manassas schools in a program to provide weekend meals for children on the breakfast and lunch assistance program at a Manassas elementary school. I said yes. When I shared this idea at the Trinity Church annual meeting the people applauded. Over the next month details of this pilot program were worked out. We would provide food for 20 children for 12 weeks.

Just two weeks ago we started collecting food and donations. And in those two weeks we have fully funded and supplied the program. Thank you everyone for your generous hearts. Your gifts are gifts of love that will carry God’ love with them out into the world.  I have every hope and expectation that this program can be expanded next year to feed every child in the Manassas City schools who is in need.

Our God is a generous, pouring out love on us through out our lives. How sadly we often live unaware of this bounty but once our eyes are opened we see it everywhere. And we too begin to live in a spirit of generosity.
