At the Church of Advent
In 2007, the Diocese of PA developed the purposes and goals for the Diocesan Stewardship Committee. They defined stewardship as “a way of living that acknowledges God’s ownership of everything and God’s abundant blessings to us. Our response is to tend to these resources, these blessings according to the examples given to us in the Gospels.
Stewardship is lived out in the decisions we make as we manage the resources that have been given to us. This includes financial resources, time, money, material possessions, physical health, the environment, talents, energies, relationships and responsibilities ~ either at home at work or in the community.
To be accountable for these blessings, we must answer some difficult questions:
1. How do we spend, manage, save, and give generously of these resources as good stewards?
2. What are the spiritual disciplines (i.e.: pledging, prayer, Rule of Life, etc.) that help us live into a life of stewardship? 3. How do we learn, embrace more deeply, teach and encourage disciplines and attitudes of stewardship in our homes?
4. How do we learn, embrace more deeply, teach and encourage disciplines and attitudes of stewardship in our congregation?
5. How do we attend to stewardship as a year-round awareness?
Our parish has had an active Stewardship Committee for many years. We would welcome your participation or suggestions on this committee.
