Weekly Sunday Bulletin – St. Gregory Palamas

Stewardship

We thank the 207 Stewards who have pledged for 2015.

From God every family in heaven and on earth is named.

Ephesians 3:15

Throughout our lives and the roles we assume within the family, we are stewards of the love, authority, trust and respect that exist among members of the family. Unlike material possessions, these are not diminished by use. But if mishandled, they can be lost. Love, authority, trust and respect require the most diligent stewardship, because once they are lost, they are most difficult to recover.
