Stewardship – It’s a way of life. Stewardship is more than a three-week program. There can be a temptation to “reduce” stewardship to only asking people to sign a commitment to donate their time, talent and/or treasure. But stewardship is much more than that. There is a spirituality and theology behind stewardship that shows us it is about our relationship with God. Being a good steward means living an active give and take relationship with God. It is realizing that it is because of God we have life…and we have an eternity to thank God in many ways. So how does a parish teach that to parishioners? What kinds of steps can be taken to help parishioners begin to understand what stewardship is really all about?
