November is when people think about giving. We make our lists and check them twice–and we think about giving to our favorite good causes, too. That’s what Giving Tuesday–the Tuesday after Thanksgiving–is all about!
But Giving Tuesday has nothing on the history of generosity among Lutheran women. The women of the church have been gathering and giving together for a lot longer than that–since as far back as the 1800s, if not even earlier.
Thankoffering services are often held around this time of year, but God’s blessings aren’t limited by the calendar and neither is our gratitude. Please consider giving a year-end gift to Women of the ELCA
