Stewardship Moment from Pastor William
1st Sunday after Christmas – Luke 2:41-52
Stewardship in the Gospel
Mary, Joseph and Jesus make their annual trip to Jerusalem for the Passover Festival; demonstrating their commitment to Jewish practices.
Stewardship in our community
Faith related traditions and practices are fast disappearing from our community. “Happy Holidays” greetings, decorations of deer and Grinch, and presents given to those who are able to give presents back are replacing faith oriented practices.
Stewardship in practice
During these twelve days of Christmas, be diligent in observing faith practices; “Merry Christmas greetings, cards and decorations of nativity scenes, and gifts to the less fortunate. Let us endeavor to keep Christ front and center in our actions and practices.
