The Wisdom of Thoughtful, Intentional Giving
When we reflect on generosity as part of our spiritual practice, our giving becomes even more deeply intentional and meaningful. How will you commit yourself to give generously, thoughtfully and intentionally in this new year just as the magi who arrived at the stable did?
