I have spent some time wrestling with how best to share the stuff I am writing about today.
In true contemplative fashion, I am doing my best to hold two equally important (and in some ways contradictory) realities.
The first reality is that The Faith-ing Project is a labor of love for me. I am passionate about sharing these practices with anybody and everybody, regardless of their ability to financially support this endeavor.
The second reality is that there are a handful of direct expenses involved with this. They include the expenses of keeping this website ad-free and able to host things like audio files. I also have a hope of upgrading some of the equipment being used here. And the time I am investing is no small thing. It would be nice to be free of the temptation of taking up a side hustle or second job. Having to do that would not be good for the development of materials here.
Since The Faith-ing Project began, I have utilized Patreon to give people an opportunity to make a small monthly contribution. In exchange for $3.00 a month, patrons receive access to a growing library of audio files which present the spiritual exercises.
If you would rather make a 1-time contribution through paypal, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are in a position to support this important work with a small monthly gift or a 1-time payment, I am deeply thankful to you. If The Faith-ing Project’s resources and email campaigns have been helpful to you, or if you share my conviction that these practices are desperately needed by the world, this financial assistance is one way to express your solidarity with me.
If you are not equipped financially to support what we are doing at this time, I would not want you to hold on to any kind of guilt about this. I (generally) believe in the power of prayer and would ask for your prayers regardless of your financial situation. Offering feedback and concrete suggestions on what you see here is another way to support this project. (I feel particularly out of my element in the visual and technological side of all this)
Regardless of whether you can support The Faith-ing Project in any specific way, I am thankful for your presence here and wish you peace on the journey.
