Stewardship Quotes

“Stewardship is a spiritual practice. How do stewards of the gospel prepare the way for
Jesus?”
– Stewardship Seconds, United Church of Canada

“Both of these passages (one quite short and the other very long) describe some of the very intense situations in the life of Jesus and some of his followers. Many church-goers seem to opt for attending services this day and then again on Easter Day, skipping the in- between ‘stuff.’ A faithful steward accepts the reality that at least some of life is lived out in the intense situations and doesn’t avoid them.” ~ Based on Matthew 21: 1-11 and Matthew 26: 14 – 27: 66
