Quickly we have moved into chilly nights and cool days. Leaves migrate from branch to ground. Schools have found their rhythm. Church programs and mission offerings extend our care. In the midst of everything, including Election Day, we are reminded of God’s many gifts which surround us and the call to be ‘good stewards’. We take to heart the call to be care-takers of the environment, of our physical health, of our church facilities, of all that is in our charge. It is both a privilege and responsibility.
November 13 is Stewardship Sunday at South Church and at thousands of other congregations across the country. In this harvest time of year, we reflect upon the richness and riches of our lives. We respond to an inner voice and desire to proportionally share of our wealth for the common good, for neighbors near and far. The two Stewardship mailings you will receive present an overview of our work together and vision for the coming year. Join with me in generous support. Lives will be changed, I promise you. I have witnessed this on a weekly basis and deeply believe it will continue.
