Everyday Stewardship / Striving for Maturity

Therefore, let us leave behind the basic teaching about Christ and advance to maturity, without laying the foundation all over again: repentance from dead works and faith in God, instruction about baptisms* and laying on of hands, resurrection of the dead and eternal judgment. And we shall do this, if only God permits. Hebrews 6:1-3 … Continue reading Everyday Stewardship / Striving for Maturity

Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing

In this blog, I am charged with keeping the main thing, the main thing, as are my guest bloggers. We reflect quite frequently on the process of conversation, everyday spirituality, and a stewardship way of life. There are many books and articles out there about parish engagement, rebuilding community, and creating a dynamic faith environment. But we … Continue reading Keeping the Main Thing the Main Thing

Getting your House in Order

My term finished last week and it has been a crazy week, trying to get the house in order before flying to France on vacation. It began with tidying and cleaning and then progressed. These last two days a company has been fitting new fascias and soffits to the outside of the house. The house … Continue reading Getting your House in Order

Philip answered him, “Two hundred days’ wages worth of food … Continue reading Everyday Stewardship / Tummies Full of Love

God Smiling Upon Us

Another characteristic of an everyday steward is that he/she is prayerful. It would seem that would be a given. Certainly any follower of Jesus is called to pray. However, this characteristic means more than whether or not one has a prayer life. Prayer is more than just communication between God and us. It is about … Continue reading God Smiling Upon Us

Sand Dollars and People

On a beach stroll during our annual trip to Georgia’s Jewel, Jekyll Island, we happened to catch the water at low tide. For those who like to find treasure this is the most opportune time! During high tide the sea’s treasure chest is carried to shore and tilted letting some of its most prized treasures … Continue reading Sand Dollars and People

Everyday Stewardship / For God’s Sake, Take a Break

The apostles gathered together with Jesus and reported all they had done and taught. He said to them, “Come away by yourselves to a deserted place and rest a while.” People were coming and going in great numbers, and they had no opportunity even to eat. So they went off in the boat by themselves … Continue reading Everyday Stewardship / For God’s Sake, Take a Break
