Stewardship of Life

 

As people of God…we are loved…and so we love.

We are forgiven…and so we forgive.

Being called into faith…means that we are called into stewardship.

 

Faithful stewardship builds us into a community of hope.  

 

The words: “Keep the faith” are usually meant as encouraging words to someone going through a difficult time.  When we, as a parish, talk about “keeping the faith” or being “called into faith” we are encouraging all to Stay With each other, stay together, knowing that together we can support and care for each other.

 

Prayer:

Almighty God, you call us into congregations where we can grow in faith, and into mission in the world where we live out our faith each day.  So guide and direct us that we may be wise and faithful stewards of all that you have entrusted to us, help us keep the faith, that your love may be made known to all; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
