Holy Habit Homework - During November, December and January we will be exploring the Holy Habit of Gladness and Generosity. Questions: What is gladness? What makes us glad? What does it mean to be generous? How can we be generous?
A prayer for us, as we begin to explore the habit of Gladness and Generosity: 'Most gracious God, all good things come from you and are signs of your love. May our gratitude fill us with gladness and our gladness with generosity, that we may express our joy in the service of others and give in thankfulness for what we have received, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.'
