- I HATE asking people for money.
- Fundraisers take SO much TIME and ENERGY that could otherwise be spent preparing for actual MINISTRY
- It bothers me that people seem to need to get something back in order to give. Not all people - we have some VERY generous souls, but for the most part, it seems you've got to offer people something. Maybe they just like to see that we're "working" so as to "earn" money but for crying out loud, we ARE working our tails off just with ministry stuff. Most of the money we raise goes to the poor, very little of it is for our own expenses so I have to wonder when did the poor have to earn our care?
Why can't the "haves" just share with the "have nots"? Why can't people who follow Jesus just share of what they have with those who don't have much of anything?
Just my little rant.
