giving through the nose

This week our prayers have been dominated by two things: heartbreak in the aftermath of Typhoon Haiphan in the Philippines and a deep desire to see generosity released from the international community. November brings the beginnings of Christmas planning and spending to the UK… surely there is an opportunity here if we spend less and give more?

If you haven’t used Omega yet – go for it. You’ll find it inspiring as well as challenging… and you can download it all free now from our seasonal page.
