Orthodox Christian Stewardship is…
Learning how to be a responsible and concerned caretaker of Christ’s Church; it is learning how to enjoy Church life and be happy in Church work., for in Her dwells the fullness of the Spirit of God.
Our active commitment to use all our Time, Talent and Treasure for the benefit of humankind in grateful acknowledgment of Christ’s redeeming love.
2 Corinthians 9:7 – Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
- Caring for the needs of others.
- Offering one’s self to God as He offered Himself to us.
- What a person does after saying “I believe…”, as proof of that belief.
- Devotion and service to God and His Church as persons, as families, as a diocese and as Church universal.
The theme that we find throughout Stewardship is care… care for our Church, care of our people, care for our children, care for the elderly and care for how we conduct ourselves. Caring requires a commitment and focus – one that mirrors the care that God our Father has for us.
As the summer months approach, please continue to support your Church as a faithful Steward. The three T’s apply here – focus on your Time, Talents & Treasures.
Also, please share your Stewardship experiences via this blog.
Thank you – David Batrich
