Buried Treasure

This past Sunday was a search and rescue mission for the idea of Stewardship. Unfortunately, this biblical principal has been violated in many circles so we framed our time together with the intention to redeeming the term. We used Jesus’ parable of the talents as our springboard and took the notion of ‘taking care of that which has been entrusted to us’ on both a communal and individual level. It was beautiful to see what God had invested in us as a community and it was also refreshing to affirm such avenues of Stewardship as Creation, Grace, Justice, Hospitality, Life and others.

Notable quote…

“That I with body and soul, both in life and death, am not my own, but belong unto my faithful Saviour Jesus Christ; who, with his precious blood, has fully satisfied for all my sins, and delivered me from all the power of the devil; and so preserves me that without the will of my heavenly Father, not a hair can fall from my head; yea, that all things must be subservient to my salvation, and therefore, by his Holy Spirit, He also assures me of eternal life, and makes me sincerely willing and ready, henceforth, to live unto him.” (Martin Luther)
