Stewardship Reflections from Luther's Catechism
This article takes a look at how the commandments come to us to give order and in that order we are offered freedom. In the same way a budget can helps us to offer the freedom that we might strive for. That freedom offers us a way to reorient our giving patterns in a way that are God honoring.
The goal in this small study book is to weave together duty, delight and joy with the three articles of faith as we profess them in the Apostles' Creed, and with the three life-long acts of thanksgiving which we traditionally identify as annual giving, special giving, and planned giving.
Mrs. Whiting, a character in the novel, Empire Falls, is known to get things done. Her secret is her organizational habit which ends up making her an excellent steward of time.
This is part two of a series of reflections on Luther's Small Catechism.
Kevin Bergeson's article is a reflection on Holy Baptism and its impact on being a steward called by God. He talks about living in the tension that exists in Holy Baptism.
