Ideas and examples were shared for encouraging giving.   In terms of motivation or reinforcement,  did you know that giving is good for your mental and physical health and that your generosity tends to evoke generosity in others.  You may see some of the ideas from this conference modified to fuel our congregation as the  Commitment and Finance committees carry out their parts in our church’s ministry.
