Grateful for this discussion

A take away for me was added reinforcement that giving is a privilege; and those of us who "work" at raising support need to cultivate relationships with individuals, not their assets. I commend Henri Nouwen's talk (now unedited transcript) he delivered in 1992 to the Marguerite Bourgeoys Family Service Foundation, entitled "Spirituality of Fundraising: A Conversation with Henri Nouwen". His premise is that fundraisers must first resolve their personal relationship with money before they are freed to release those who are yet captive.
