Stewardship Year-Round Program Begins!


DragonSlayerActing on the directive of the Bishop at last month’s Diocesan Synod, each parish in the Diocese is to provide a year-round stewardship program. Year-round stewardship, you may ask? One can get the impression in one’s mind that this is going to be a constant pitch for money. No, thankfully, not! As your Rector, I would run for the hills if this were the case. Using our time, treasure and talent we can rejoice in what God has done for us already!

Stewardship is the pathway to discipleship and I feel God has begun a good work in us by the many ways we give of ourselves to Our Lord and His Church. The Vestry and I have already formed a Stewardship committee and given it the name “The Dragon Slayers.” Ann Whitfield is the Committee Chairman. In the coming weeks, you will be receiving letters about year-round stewardship. A Bible study on stewardship is to begin the week of Sept. 8th. Please prayerfully reflect on the Scripture verse (St. Luke 6:38) listed in this week’s Bible Readings insert.

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

Fr. Hines+
