A Note from Rhetta
We usually think of Stewardship season as taking place in the fall, when we talk quite a bit about how we spend our treasure. Well, I submit to you that we are now entering Stewardship season, Part Two, when it is time to really reflect on time and talent.
Next Sunday, May 20, we will be holding a fabulous Ministry Showcase at 10:15 a.m. in the parish hall. This means we will be recognizing and celebrating our mighty heroes and giving you a chance to see how you can be one of them.
Unlike certain other superheroes, these valiant servant-leaders eschew the weapons of war in favor of the gifts of the Spirit: faithfulness, hope, and love.
Here is just a partial list of some heroes you might encounter that Sunday--
White Linen & the Green Thumb
(aka Altar and Flower Guilds)
Powers: Able to care for holy things, create a beautiful environment, and ensure that all safely partake of the Lord’s Supper.
Captain Attentive & The Glad Morning
(Ushers and Greeters)
Powers: Enhanced hospitality, keen eye for the comfort and well-being of the assembly, complete discretion while passing the plate.
(aka The Green Team)
Powers: Harnessing the power of knowledge and action to bring healing to Creation.
(St. Margaret’s Guild & the Brotherhood of St. Andrew)
Powers: Combining the powers of faith, fellowship, and service to maximize the Good News.
Powers: Deep compassion and desire for spiritual connection.
(Prayer Shawl Ministry)
Powers: Prayer! Fearless in the face of mountains of yarn.
Professor Wow & The Wrangler
(Sunday School, Youth, and Adult Formation)
Powers: Able to find joy in just about anything.
The list goes on and on: musical heroes, liturgy heroes, even office heroes! There are countless ways to be a superhero, no matter what powers you possess. Not sure of your powers? Maybe it’s time for you to explore what gifts lie within you! Come out of hiding and reveal your true identity as one of St. Margaret’s Mightiest Heroes!
