Since we left our last church, we've not tithed. We still have all of it, but for the last 6 months while going to a different church every week, we have not yet found the one that we want to move our membership to (but we're close). Anyway, I have a question about what to do with all this saved up tithe money. We'd feel a little weird giving a huge lump sum tithe to the church that we join. We don't want to draw attention to ourselves. I know this is kept confidential, but I also know this kind of thing spreads like wildfire sometimes. We don't want to give anonymously because we do want the tax break. We thought about breaking it up and giving a double tithe until it is all given, but then the church might think we've suddenly lost our faith when we begin to give half our normal tithe. We'd probably be most comfortable just giving it to the Southern Baptist Convention instead, but I think there's something necessary about giving to the local church and supporting its ministries. So, what do you think should we do?
