This is an extraordinary little book about how to be generous. This is a topic that we need to hear more about in this egotistical world of ours when the only important person is ME.
This book has the power to heal, foster relationships, console, empower individuals, create community and help save the world by providing a spiritual ecology for our daily lives. It is like a book I never read. I am SO glad that I read it.
We can all be more generous with our money, when special gift-giving occasions roll around or when disaster strikes as it did during the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004.
Lucinda Vardey and John Dalla Costs say that this kind of giving segregated generosity and makes it an activity only for gifted times.
If we’re truly going to help this troubled world, we have to help those we interact with every day and those further away too.
Vardey and Dalla Costs introduce us to what they call the art of right living — practising generosity, humbly and imperfectly, ever day, within our families, workplaces, and communities. They illustrate how generosity infiltrates all aspects of our lives, inspires, and guides us. It also tests us and teaches us about the needs of the less fortunate.
This book is filled with true stories about generosity in action.
