"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”     Luke 6:38

For the past several years around this time of year an anonymous donor comes forward in our congregation at Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church and hands me a hundred dollars in one dollar bills to be given to the congregation along with the request to use their dollar, along with some of their own if they wish, to help someone else. 

It all started several years ago when I did the a similar thing with the children of our congregation during the children's sermon.  Our anonymous donor thought it would be a good thing for adults as well.  I added a way for people to share their stories on a blog and, as they say, the rest is history.

Last Sunday we again passed the plates and instead of putting money in, those in attendance took out a dollar to be used in helping others. 
The blog is online again and waiting to hear just how much good can begin with one dollar.

So, if you were in worship last Sunday - let's hear from you!   If you weren't, I invite you to join in this wonderful act of generosity by taking a dollar(s) of your own, helping someone else and sharing your story.

Here's the link to tell us your story of generosity.    I hope to hear from you soon!
