Ponderings November 9, 2017

Cutting Evil’s Root . . . that is the title of my sermon given in advance of sending 2018 stewardship packets to our active members. (click here to listen)  Its three main points were these:

  • God owns everything, entrusting resources to us to manage for our good and His greater glory;
  • God expects us to thank Him with a tithe of all He entrusts to us; and
  • God is faithful to His faithful people.

This sermon creates an appropriate context for the ten-day study included in each mailing, Trust Me in This.  Please prayerfully ponder this teaching prior to completing your time, talent and treasure pledges to The Church of the Cross for 2018.  Then join me when we gather as a parish family the weekend of November 18-19 to celebrate Thanksgiving by placing our pledges on the altar . . . in this special way we’ll be saying “Thank You!” to the One who became poor so that we might become rich. 

Trusting in Him,
