Here is an excerpt from that mailing if you did not receive it:
“How does our renewal in God change the way we listen to God’s words? How do we respond? We close our worship service with the words Sending God’s Word into the World. That is a quite a commitment! During the rest of the week, do we reflect on His words and act accordingly? Do we make positive changes in our relationships with others? In Reinhold Niebuhr’s Serenity Prayer, we ask God to give us serenity to accept what cannot be changed, the courage to change what can be changed and the wisdom to know one from the other.
In this season, let us pray for wisdom to better understand the needs of our church and others and make positive changes in our stewardship - the act of responsibly overseeing, protecting, and preserving what we value. Paul Ohori.
Note: there will not be a luncheon after the stewardship worship service this year.
