Afraid to Ask? Give People Joy, Let Them Give
A quick note: I am ready to be done with “growth opportunities” in my city. Coronavirus, wildfires, weeding out Proud Boys...and now a once-in-a-lifetime ice storm has hit dear old Salem, OR. Our park across the street looks like a tornado went through it. We just got the electricity back on after three days; now the internet isn’t functioning (the horror!). So, having found a generous soul who’s letting me “borrow” her internet (I think I’ve still got twenty minutes left on the meter), I’m sharing an old post that bears repeating. Enjoy!
Cesie Delve Scheuermann (pronounced “CC Delv Sherman,” yes, really) is a consultant in stewardship, development, and grant writing. Over the past fifteen years, while working as a volunteer and part-time consultant, she helped raise over three million dollars for numerous non-profit organizations. In honor of her getting her electricity back on, she leaves you with two puns: “A wind turbine saw a solar panel at an energy convention. He leaned in and shouted, ‘Hey, I’m a big fan!’” and “My electrician friend accidentally blew the power to the ice-making factory. Now they’ve gone into liquidation.” She is available to consult with churches. You can reach her at email@example.com or on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/inspiringgenerosity or at CesieScheuermann.com.
