Generosity in quotes: Melissa Florer-Bixler

“The mysteries of the [communion] bread have taught me that we always have more than enough: enough for sparrows and children, for hospital beds and nursing homes, for postpartum mothers and sick teenagers.

There is enough for the entire world—trails of crumbs infusing all of it with the sacred love of God.”
