I want to join as a monthly partner, but what if I am unable in the future? “Gracious join, gracious step back”: Commitments are always a little scary, and supporting people in ministry is one of those commitments that can be awkward to back out of. I understand that financial situations change and please do not feel bad if you have to step back as a monthly donor. Your giving is an expression of the larger friendship, something more important than financial support. Moreover, you are giving directly to the Lord and indirectly to me. The Lord is directly supporting me, indirectly through your gifts. What matters most is that we are responding to him faithfully.
