Let us begin by stating what stewardship is not. Stewardship is not about money. It is not a fundraising program. It is not a fundraising program. It is not about building a new parish hall. It is not a new fad or environmental word. Stewardship is a way of life.
Stewardship is biblically based; in 1 Peter 4: 10 we read: “As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace “ Thus, a steward is one who: *Receives God’s gift gratefully
* Cherishes and tends them in a responsible and accountable manner
* Shares them in justice and love with others.
* Returns them with increase to the Lord
