Stewardship Snippets:

John 14:27 – Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not let them be afraid. Christians around the world celebrate today the Spirit of God poured out upon all creation. Because of this divine generosity, we can be bold, faithful, and fearless in our stewardship of God’s abundance.
