#GivingTuesday (originally posted Nov. 26, 2018)
#GivingTuesday is an opportunistic social media campaign invented by nonprofits to capitalize on the guilt of Americans who have just spent gazillions of dollars and countless hours purchasing and parusing unneeded stuff for themselves and their family with whom they rarely get to see except on Christmas and Thanksgiving (but now only Christmas, because they spent Thanksgiving at Wal-Mart and on their phones looking for #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday deals.)
As such, I did not want to miss out on the opportunity provided by #GivingTuesday to capitalize on the guilt that you may be experiencing from the previous weekend and let you know how you can support our family via the Simple Church Alliance during this new American tradition…. ☺
In all seriousness, as you may know, our family is able to serve as leaders of the Simple Church Alliance only because of the generosity of friends who believe in the mission of seeing a multiplying movement of disciples and simple churches beginning in Central Kentucky and extending to the ends of the earth.
If you are one of those people, we thank you from the bottom of our heart! We do not know who gives and who does not; however, we are still here 8 years later thanks to our supporters! We have been blessed to see one simple church composed of a handful of families grow to a network of 25+ simple churches reaching into several states. Moreover, we have been blessed to witness your friends and family welcomed into the Kingdom and disciplemaking friendships flourish.
We do have need for more folks to join our monthly giving team. If you would like to support us, specifically our family and the work we are called to, then you can do so at the link below. All I would ask is that if you give, do so only because you believe in the work—not out of guilt from #BlackFriday and #CyberMonday:)
Thank you all and we pray that you have a wonderful Advent season! – Gavin Duerson
