Offerings: Remarks on Passing the Plate (Skinner, 2004), by Robert Thayer, a retired Unitarian Universalist minister, is a collection of motivational articles, offertory words, and one song for use by worship leaders in congregations when taking the offering. Thayer said that some of the pieces grew out of his experiences in visiting black churches where leaders spend five minutes or so “bringing people out of worldly selfishness” and inspiring them to make larger contributions.
