Study Guide Teaches Individuals to Live Stewardship

Brad Reiners has a goal. He is so passionate about Christian tewardship, he compiled a study guide on the topic. His goal? To give the guide away to as many congregations as possible that want to use it.

Living Stewardship: A Lifelong Journey is a small-group guide that examines six aspects of stewardship: the traditional time, talents and treasures that so many of us commonly hear of, but also the stewardship of mind, body and spirit.

Reiners, associate vice president for planned giving at Luther Seminary, calls the creation of the booklet a labor of love. He combines his years in planned giving, his readings, and lessons learned from the warm, generous people he meets to offer a helpful guide to giving thoughtfully and joyfully.

Living Stewardship is available online at the Stewardship for the 21st Century Web site, www.luthersem.edu/stewardship. You can also download a pdf version of the booklet at the same site.
