A Good Steward

Steward is a biblical term that refers to a one who is responsible for the goods and property of another. Stewardship has come to be used in the Christian community in a broader sense for our responsibility to manage wisely the goods and property that are in our possession. The assumption is that we do not really possess or own anything. Rather, the world, including us, belongs to God. Therefore, we are not owners but stewards of all that comes into our arena of responsibility‚ÄĒincome, assets, property, goods, time, talents, and our very selves. Religious stewardship is management as sacred trust.

Please consider becoming a ‘good steward’ and give and pledge generously as much as you can, when you can. By giving generously, you will be on the road to a healthy spiritual relationship with your surrounding community and the greater world.
