2017 Annual Giving Resources
Welcome to annual giving ministries in the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia – we are so glad you’re here!
This year The Diocese of Virginia is excited to provide our second set of resources that connects churches more deeply with one another, whether around the corner or across the Commonwealth.
These resources are based on the Collect for Purity, which begins ‘Almighty God, to you all hearts are open, all desires known, and from you no secrets are hid …’.
Many hear these sentences every Sunday, but miss the call into worship and into relationship with God exactly because they are settling into their pews, finding they hymn page, and frankly because they do hear them at the beginning of every service. The words are lost to repetition. This annual giving ministry invites people deeply into this rich prayer and into how our hearts are open to God, to ourselves, and to others.
