Being Blessing


What is it to be a blessing? What does a life look like that offers life to others? In our time together, we will reflect on the circulatory nature of blessing. We will reflect on some literary and scriptural references, and note the ways in which choosing to be blessing leads us away from patterns of consuming and hoarding. Practical suggestions will be offered, and the session will include time for group sharing.
