Stewardship: Everything we do after we say we believe

Stewardship is a response of discipleship, an ordering of life that puts all we have under Christ's rule~our time, our money, our relationships.  Jesus is not interested in just ten percent.  He wants one hundred percent of our lives.  The essence of stewardship formation asks:  How do we respond?
 
The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of "tithing," which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26).  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.
 
RESOLVE to be faithful in little...to be faithful in much.
