Live Free Companion Resource

Live Free is a companion resource for Giving Magazine Volume 17

The “Live Free” theme is the first of a four-year emphasis that will focus on I Timothy 6:18-19, “take hold of the life that really is life.” This text, along with Galatians 5:1, are the scriptures uplifted in the “Live Free” theme.


Giving Magazine was a premier stewardship resource published by the Ecumenical Stewardship Center (ESC) from 1999 until 2020. The magazine served Christian faith communities throughout North America, providing thoughtful, practical, and inspirational content on faith and giving from thought leaders and practitioners alike. Giving was published annually from 1999 until 2018 (volumes 1-20), and then quarterly in 2019 and 2020 (volumes 21-28) in digital form only. In 2021 ESC closed its doors and committed its archives to the care of Lake Institute on Faith & Giving. For further information on ESC or its archives, please contact us at
