Practice Generosity Generosity is often understood as an act of kindness that involves giving out of one’s abundance to others in need. Biblical teachings describe the practice as something a little different. Generosity is simply, and profoundly, love in action. We practice generosity in all the ways we love God and love our neighbors. It is a practice rooted in justice and concerned with all the world’s needs. One may not have a penny to give but can still be plenty generous. Generosity is an expectation not a simple kindness to be observed. Generosity is caring for our neighbors’ mind, body, spirit, and life in the community.
Youth Leader's Guide
This leader’s guide is for youth ages 11–18. It contains helpful information for the leader, including information about leading youth, background information about the practice, a note about supplies, and other helpful information for each session. There are symbols for each activity within the session that allow a leader to see at a glance the type of activity and customize each session for their group of youth. Our youth leader guide activity symbols assist the leader in accommodating both concrete- and abstract-thinking youth. Each session includes resource pages that may be copied, printed, or sent out electronically to participants. There are other helpful pieces for youth in the Congregational Guide.
