We’ve had our holiday of thanks, and now we have the season of giving. Giving might seem simple–you like someone, so you give them something they’ll enjoy–but it’s anything but. Giving can be motivated by affection, duty, obligation, gratitude, ingratiation, indebtedness, even fear; gifts can be received with gratitude, suspicion, delight, exasperation, indebtedness, even fear. How can we disentangle the simple act of giving from all of these attached strings? Maybe exploring the phenomenon of the weekly offering will help.
