HOW IS GOD CALLING YOU? Like everyone, I have particular thoughts and values associated with money. After reading Richard Rohr’s daily meditation for September 22, 2021, “Rights and Responsibilities,” I’ve taken a second look. The meditation is a reflection on the parable in Luke about the nobleman who gives his servants money, and instructs them to do business with it while he is away. Don’t hide it, put it to good use, consider the possibilities. One servant hid the money out of fear of losing it, and he was strongly condemned by his master. In this stewardship campaign, the Stewardship Team asks you to consider the possibilities, many of which are presented in this brochure. These possibilities can become a reality with your financial pledge and a pledge of your time and talents. – Steve Hyde, Stewardship Team Chair
