Stewardship Corner

mayflowersSpring is here and it’s time to plant some flowers and vegetables. There are miracles and the promise of food and joy in the seeds. When we witness the first signs of life pushing up from the ground, it’s as if God is interrupting us just to “get our attention.” Just putting the seeds in the ground is usually not enough to ensure good results. We need to fertilize and water them to get the blossoms and fruits of our labor. Ignoring them may produce something, but we know nurturing our flowers and vegetables can produce much better and satisfying results.

Stewardship works in much the same way. The programs and worship opportunities available at the Church of the Holy Spirit are the soil to plant our seeds of time, talent, and treasure. When we encourage each other to participate in these activities, our parish grows and flourishes.

So, start planning how your garden will grow… plant some seeds to help a parish project, join a committee or ministry, participate in a parish fellowship opportunity, invite friends to worship with you… and watch how you grow and flourish in God’s love and warmth.

They are like trees planted by streams of water; which yield their fruit in its season and their leaves do not whither;
In all that they do they prosper.
Psalm 1:3
