Charitable Giving by Gen X and Millennials Increasing

Charitable giving has long been the domain of wealthy industrialists and their foundations after a lifetime of achievements. But the profile of today’s philanthropists is changing: Increasingly, they are Gen Xers and millennials who are reinventing what it means to do good. They want more than just their name on the donors’ wall; they want to see real and measurable results. In Generation Impact: How Next Gen Donors Are Revolutionizing Giving, authors Sharna Goldseker and Michael Moody examine the future of giving in these young hands.

An Ash Wednesday and Valentine’s Day Dilemma

The Origins of Lent

The Origins of Lent

 
The tradition of Lent can be traced back to the 2nd century. During this season, new Christians would prepare for baptism through fasting and study. By the year 325 AD, the time of preparation had been extended to 40 days and entire congregations practiced Lenten disciplines as a sign of Christian discipleship. Church consensus determined that the Lenten period of renewal should correspond to Christ’s forty-day fast. These Christians counted forty days back from Easter (excluding Sundays), to determine the time frame of the Lenten journey.
