Experimental Theology: Thoughts On Church Giving: Part 2, The Offering Receipt

Dropping money in the collection plate is kind of like paying taxes, psychologically speaking. You put your money in the collection plate but you don’t know where or how that money is spent. You know abstractly that you are paying for everything around you, just like the taxpayer, but the lack of specificity makes it hard to feel a connection. But if you listed out the particulars, like with a tax receipt, then you might increase the feeling of a connection…

What would such a receipt look like? I think you’re only limited by your creativity. But here’s one idea. On the receipt have the major categories highlighted: Building, salaries, ministries, missions, etc. Each week have something very particular listed under each category.
