Big Words: GIVE – with Dinner and Cultural Credit, Tuesday, Nov. 6

Every religion recognizes the value of kindness in all its forms: generosity, charity, compassion and consideration. We all often overlook chances to be generous with one another, to be friendly to those who need a friend and to be supportive to those who need support, yet both ancient spiritual teachings and contemporary psychology tell us of the importance of generosity to spiritual and emotional well-being.

On Tuesday, Nov. 6, this month’s Big Words will explore the spiritual side of generosity with guest speaker Nestor de Armas. The Office of Religious and Spiritual Life hosts Big Words monthly. Each event presents an interfaith perspective on a concept of importance in many different religious and spiritual traditions.

De Armas, a retired executive, Stetson Board of Trustee emeritus, past president of Stetson’s alumni association and longtime supporter of the university, will talk about his experiences with the spiritual value of generosity.

Big Words: GIVE is Tuesday, Nov. 6, at 6:30 p.m. in the Rinker Welcome Center. Dinner will be provided, and Cultural Credit is available.
