[Before the offering:]
God calls us to be generous
not when all the bills are paid
not when we have everything we need
not when we see our way clear.
God calls us to be generous now,
in this present moment,
trusting in God who is our Provider.
And so we give freely, as we have received freely,
we love fully as we have been fully loved.
[After the offering:]
Accept the gifts of our hands
and the thankfulness of our hearts
hearts and hands and voices, all lifted in praise to you,
God of our life! Amen.
