Generosity in quotes

“Gratitude is not just appreciation for good effort — it is a theological discipline. When Paul wrote, ‘Rejoice always . . . give thanks in all things’ (I Thessalonians 5: 16-18), he was speaking to us. When Julian of Norwich wrote, ‘All manner of things shall be well,’ she was speaking to us. It is a theological commitment to trust that God is in all things and that we have already been given everything we need for our present and future.”

Wendy L. Fletcher, principal and dean of Vancouver (BC) School of Theology, from “Together we rise: Nine keys to a healthy board-president leadership team” (In Trust magazine, Autumn 2011)
