1gift4good at Faith, Ottawa
During Advent, members at Faith Lutheran Church in Ottawa are recording their gifts on paper and placing them into the gift box on the altar – a random act of kindness, letting someone else in line in front of you, yielding a sought-after parking spot to someone else, giving a cup of coffee to a homeless person, volunteering at the food bank, helping carry parcels for someone, spending extra time with a loved one, giving money to support an important mission, etc. Then, during the Christmas Eve and Day services, the gift box will be opened and some of these “gifts for good” will be read out (anonymously) – all to signify the unconditional character of gift-giving in Jesus’ name, and as our gift to the newborn Jesus.

People in Leamington Celebrate 1gift4good
Pastor Thomas Mertz from Leamington was talking about 1gift4good in his sermon this past Sunday. He encouraged the people that he serves to write down their 1gift4good moments on a piece of paper during the week and bring them to church to put in a box in the narthex. The box will be opened at their New Year’s Day worship service.
What a great idea!
