Stewardship Quotes

“God gives without partiality. Let us do likewise.”
– Stewardship Seconds, United Church of Canada

“‘This is . . . my Beloved, on whom my favour rests.’  How would we feel, how would we react, would we live, if we were to truly let these words soak into our lives?  It seems to me that we would see just how deeply these words could be lived out by observing the life of a faithful steward.” ~ Based on Matthew 3: 13-17
Sunday by Sunday: Reflections on Stewardship prepared by the Venerable Michael Pollesel, Stewardship Education Coordinator, Diocese of Ontario, Anglican Church of Canada
