STEWARDSHIP is a complete and total way of life. It acknowledges our dependence on God for all we have and all we are. Stewardship of our time, talent and treasure lies at the heart of a Christian life. In short, it's something we do; it's the way we live.
As Christian stewards, we receive God's gifts gratefully, cultivate them responsibly, share them in loving justice with others, and return them with increase to the Lord. Find a STEWARDSHIP PRAYER here.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT: We extend our gratitude to All Saints Parish in Evansville, In. for the use of their Stewardship artwork.
Stewardship of TIME and TALENT
One of the greatest gifts God gives us is our TIME. When we hand back a portion of each day to the One who made all our days, without thinking about what we get in return, we are living the life of a steward. Additionally, every one of us has something we can do to help others. The gift of our TALENTS invites us to recognize, cherish and share our God-given abilities.
