Spirituality for Stewardship:  We are called to be good stewards (caretakers) of what God has given us. God has given us many wonderful gifts: life, minds to think, hearts to love, and all the other wonders of the created world. God invites us to take good care of what has been entrusted to us. And we are also mindful as a parish community of the wonderful gifts we share with All Saints: our wisdom, our wealth, and the work of our hands. To help us meditate on being good stewards of Creation and on preparing our hearts and minds for the Stewardship Pledge Campaign which helps us to budget for the coming year, we’ve put together a booklet of daily meditations here. Copies will also be available at our services on Sunday.
