Stewardship Quotes

“As you consider your Christmas giving this year, how can you give in order to bring hope?”
Stewardship Seconds, United Church of Canada

“Today’s gospel, marking the beginning of the new Church year, sounds pretty scary!  Jesus reminds us that things can change very quickly and that there is a need to stay alert.  As one who wants to live as a faithful steward, how does my life show that I am alert and participating in bringing God’s dream for creation to reality?” ~ based on Matthew 24: 36-44
Sunday by Sunday: Reflections on Stewardship prepared by the Venerable Michael Pollesel, Stewardship Education Coordinator, Diocese of Ontario, Anglican Church of Canada
