Giving at PAS


The spiritual accounting of our lives is not merely a punch list of our deeds, of rights and wrongs committed. We are also measured according to the degree to which we open our eyes to the beauty, goodness, and good fortune of our lives. Our success in doing so is signaled by a spiritual posture of giving. The act of giving reflects a heartfelt attitude of gratitude and announces to God and to the world that we are indeed thankful for the blessings of our lives.
