The following e-mail arrived in my mail box the Sat. before Christmas as I was preparing my sermon for Christmas eve. I hadn't preached on Xmas eve in 13 years. As I read the e-mail it felt as though God was speaking to me and reminding me of what is at stake in the preaching task on Christmas and Easter.

Needless to say I was moved by this young man's plea and it helped me prepare my message for the night. There are also stewardship questions to be addressed by this young man and I hope to have the opportunity to visit with him about these issues as well.

I was both humbled and touched by his e-mail as it captured for me what are I'm sure the yearnings and questions of a lot of folks who walk through the doors of our churches on a regular basis.

This is article was found in the congregation newsletter.  Pastor Larson reminds the  congregation St. Paul's succinct theology for Christian giving and stewardship by making four admonitions.

He encourages the congregation in its giving by writing:
"I hope you will join us in that growth so that the mission and ministry of our congregation can also grow. As we approach the onset of our Bear Fruit Stewardship Campaign, I hope will give prayerful consideration to this question, "How much will you grow in your giving in 2003?"

One of our board members make a suggestion that really excited a lot of us in relationship to whole life stewardship.

She brought up the idea of including Christian service and time places on
the weekly envelops in addition to $ lines.

I thought this was an incredible way to help persons begin to understand
that stewardship involves all we do in relationship to our Lord.
