Stewardship as a Way of Life
Our parish practices ‘Stewardship as a Way of Life’. A steward is someone to whom the assets of someone else are entrusted, and who ultimately makes a return of those assets. A steward has no personal claim on anything they have been given. In the Christian economy, God is the ‘someone else’ who has entrusted immeasurable assets and gifts to each of us. Most commonly, we speak of these as time, talent, and treasure. Perhaps more pointedly, we can use some parallel terminology and speak of the stewardships of prayer (time), service (talent), and regular sacrificial giving (treasure).
