This is a quiz that helps participants to evaluate how Christ is Lord in their lives.
Dean used it at worship as part of the sermon. He had one of the Deacons share in the sermon how the quiz made her think again about relying on and trusting God. A very important aspect of stewardship.
Dean hopes that the quiz will stir thinking and prayer in people about their stewardship of life and the treasures we receive from God, ie. grace, love, forgiveness,as well as the abundance of physical blessings we have.
