    Now churches want $10 and $20 bills! I remember a day when if someone put a dollar bill in the collection plate, it was a big offering.

    I remember when my Gas and Electric bill was $26 a month. Now it’s ten times that. Could YOU live on what you made twenty years ago?

    When my father entered the ministry in the ’20s, minimum salary was $300 – per year – plus a pounding or two a year. Pounding is an “in kind” salary of a pound of edibles per family – my mother would tell of her first, finding the kitchen full of live chickens!

    The way this society runs, you’d think that the immense church receipts were tax-free. Oh, wait a minute…

    where I go, there is never a collection taken…of course, the ministers work for free also

    That was back when a dollar was big, and a quarter could actually buy something. Now, what used to cost a dollar costs $20, IF you’re lucky.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (better known as the Mormons) simply uses envelopes with NCR paper. You put your donation in the envelope, fill out the NCR paper, include one of the pieces so that we know how you want your donation disbursed (general funds, missionary support, welfare assistance, et cetra), and give it to the minister in private.
    []
    What you donate is between you and God, with nobody else to see it outside of the clerks who keep the records and make sure the money gets from A to B.

    Sounds like you need to attend a church meeting and find out what the budget and utility bills are.
