Although others might say otherwise, I don’t consider myself to be that old. At least, I don’t feel that old. I say this because it is within my lifetime that I can recall the change that used to take place in people’s attitudes during this time of year. One didn’t need to be religious or […]

The theme God The Giver from our Stewardship Initiative has touched each one of us as we try to come to terms with all the wonderful things we have received from God, and how best each of us can respond. But faith in God always makes demands on us – it always calls us to take that next step, not quite knowing where it will take us, apart from knowing that God promises always to be with us. It is a way to express gratitude for the blessings of God and return the blessing in tangible ways. It is a way of proclaiming your belief that God is at work in our church; it is way of reminding yourself that God gets a piece of the pie because He is the one who brought you the pie in the first place.
