Lord I will trust in you. Help me to journey beyond the familiar and into the unknown.
Give me the faith to leave old ways and break new ground with you.
Christ of the mysteries, I trust you to be stronger than each storm within me.
I will trust in the darkness and know that my times are in your hand.
Tune my spirit to the music of heaven, and somehow, make my obedience count for you.
Prayer attributed to St. Brendan
Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God.
The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” (Numbers 18:26). But, the Episcopal Church sees stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. It’s about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity.
