Weekly Wacky Welcome – November 16, 2014

time_talent_treasureRecently, I read an article by Leo Babauta that was addressing fear.  I thought some of his ideas applied to stewardship.  When filling out your card…

1. Sit and look inside yourself. If fear creeps up, look inside and try to see what’s causing fear.  Try shining a light on it.  Often, it’s not so bad.  And know that you can change your pledge if need be.

2. Think about who you’re helping.  While fear is scary, it’s often not nearly as bad as the pain that someone else is facing.  Your giving of time, talent, and treasure helps others.

3. Go for a walk.  Clear your mind and talk to God on your walk.  Make sure and listen, too.

4. Talk to someone,  If I’m struggling, I’ll find someone to talk to, and explain my problem.  Fear in stewardship will always be a tough opponent, but when it smacks you in the face, don’t collapse.  Have Fearless Generosity!  Live your life based on faith not fear!

Our stewardship drive is an important time in the life of the church.  Thanks for taking it seriously, faithfully, and fearlessly!  We are asking each family to turn in a pledge card by next Sunday, Nov. 23

 

Shalom,

Paul
