November 12, 2023 (Worship Service) Don’t Be Shy: The Elevating Power of Receiving Generosity

We have often heard that it’s better to give than to receive – but is this true? UCM member Ginny Sassaman returns to the pulpit to explore the proposition that open-hearted receiving can also be uplifting for both the recipient and the donor. At times, especially when the gifts come from nature, it can be an elevating experience. But even commonplace giving and receiving can increase well-being and resilience for all involved when it is a shared experience – so don’t be shy when generosity comes your way! Music will include guest vocalist Marc Gwinn singing John Denver’s Sunshine on my Shoulders.
