Walter Brueggemann's insights into the biblical story create an opportunity for a major shift in the way stewardship is approached. This article will inspire the reader. It deserves to be shared, read, studied and preached.  

We live under the myth of scarcity. The truth is, God abundantly blesses all creation.

"The creation is infused with the Creator's generosity, and we can find practices, procedures and institutions that allow that generosity to work. Like the rich young man in Mark 10, we all have many possessions. Sharing our abundance may, as Jesus says, be impossible for mortals, but nothing is impossible for God." -- Walter Bruggemann

The CHRISTIAN CELEBRATION OF LIFE (CCL) is a phrase coined by the National Catholic Conference for Total Stewardship in 1985. It synthesizes the rich body of teachings of Jesus in the Bible and in the Church. Combined into a unique formation process, called the CHRISTIAN CELEBRATION OF LIFE, the teachings provide spiritual development of God's People for evangelization in parishes, local churches and the world. The process fulfills exactly what John Paul II calls for in his apostolic exhortation, Christifideles Laici, the "Lay Faithful of Christ."
