Dios tolera incluso nuestra tartamudez y perdona nuestra ignorancia siempre que algo se nos escapa sin darnos cuenta, de hecho, sin esta misericordia no habría ninguna libertad para orar. ~ John Calvin

Mientras crecía a principios de los años sesenta, recuerdo vivamente las visitas anuales hechas por un anciano, un diácono, e incluso a veces por un pastor. Llegaron con a la tarjeta de compromiso en la mano y hacían una presentación bíblica bastante convincente para que mis padres no solo hicieran el compromiso anual, ¡sino también para prometer la ofrenda del 10 por ciento de sus ingresos! La visita era seguida por el Banquete Anual de la Mayordomía, o como se llamó en un año, «El Banquete de la Generosidad». Terminaba con el Domingo de la Mayordomía cuando miembros de la iglesia se acercaban a la mesa de comunión a traer sus tarjetas de compromiso y colocarlas en las cestas designadas.
