We are in a time of uncertainty in our parish. Many of us are anxious about what the next year will bring to Grace Church. In this time of transition and uncertainty, we can be certain of one thing: God has been generous to each of us. Let us recognize how much we have to be grateful for and respond to that recognition by choosing to live generously.
Grace Church has changed in the last decade, and we are again in an interim period with the Search Committee leading us in another time of reflection as we prepare to call our next rector. As we enter this season of stewardship, let us use this time to discern where our own spiritual development is and how we will express our gratitude in our commitment of time, talent and treasure.
We are all stewards of God's bounty on our journey to generosity. Let us accept with gratitude all our many gifts and respond generously so that we may live as faithful stewards.
“Stewardship is how we choose to live after we believe.”
Please return your Time and Talent pledge forms as well as your financial pledge card during this season, which will end Sunday,November 5, when all our pledges will be blessed at the altar. As the pledges come in, watch the youth “canstruction” take shape with one can added for each pledging household.
