Happening  Happening

Augustana Lutheran Church n West St. Paul is known as a congregation which is a ridiculously generous congregation.  A part of the reason is history of strong pastoral stewardship leadership and a very intentional annual plan to prepare and invite people to respond.  Their fall stewardship emphasis at Augustana Lutheran Church in West St. Paul, MN begins in February.   Here are notes from the PowerPoint presentation.

This book seeks to recapture the biblical background of the concept of "steward." Hall writes, "Stewardship does not describe any one dimension of the Christian life; it describes the whole posture called 'Christian.'"

Hall contends that the terms "steward" and "stewardship" are used with greater frequency outside the churches than inside them. As such, it makes the word more accessible to a much wider audience.
