Our Greater Good tradition invites us to tap out of mindless consumerism that drains our energy and attention and tap into a deeper purpose. We’re asked to examine our holiday spending (gifts, food, decorations, etc.) and cut that in half. We invite you to take the other half that you would have spent and pool it together with the rest of us. For some, it’s hard to cut a single simple meal in half; for others, this has become the annual tradition that forms the bulk of their financial generosity for the year. We encourage you to be as generous as you are able.
Together, we are going to make some magic happen. No one donation, no matter how big, can change everything, but together we can play our part in the work of justice by resourcing community organizations to continue their powerful work in our wider community. In 2020, our youth selected two great organizations: The Worker Justice Center and City Roots Community Land Trust.
in 2021, throughout the month of May, we are collecting nominations for recipient organizations for 2021. If you are a church member, we encourage you to submit nominations here.
