What’s a “give-in”?

This post is really just an excuse to share one of my favorite photos of the week, so far, and the story behind it. This was taken by Wes Sedlacek, who is a fellow Oregon Deputy, a friend and clergy colleague, and a child of St. David’s. (But not the guy in the photo I posted earlier in the week.) Wes serves on the Stewardship Committee here at General Convention, and members of that committee were concerned that the daily Eucharist did not involve a daily offering. We did take a massive offering at Sunday’s celebration, all of which will go to the United Thank Offering. However, some folks on the Stewardship Committee have not been happy with this daily missed opportunity for generosity, and organized a “give-in.” Committee members decided to simply offer their money, whether the convention liturgy planners asked for it or not. Appropriately, they left their offerings at the baptismal font. You can read more on Bishop Rickel’s blog.
