Your Stewardship Matters
Filled with the Spirit of Pentecost, the grateful life is a generous life.
Actions born out of gratefulness are not compulsive, rather free;
not somber, rather joyful;
not fanatical, rather liberating.
When gratitude is the source of our actions,
our giving becomes receiving and
those to whom we minister become our ministers.
