Gracious and generous God, creator and giver of all that is good, we thank you for our many blessings.  We acknowledge that all we have is from you. We offer you thanks and praise for the beauty of the earth, our family, our loved ones, and all the gifts we have been given.

Help us to hear your call to be good stewards, caretakers and managers of all your gifts by sharing them for your purposes. Help us plan to serve our church, our community, and our world with your gifts. May we serve you and pray with a joyful spirit of mind and heart. We remain your faithful stewards. Amen.

Stewardship is an expression of faith. It is a spiritual discipline that encompasses our very being as Christians. It is a radical departure from our secular understanding of charity where we give to meet an external need. Instead, stewards are motivated to give because it is something we internally need to do; it is intrinsic to our very understanding of what it means to be fully human.

The Christian gives freely because that is what God did and because “God loves a cheerful giver” (2 Corinthians 9.7). Recognizing that God actually gave us everything we have in trust, we, in turn, share the gifts we have been given.” [Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria, Stewardship: Our grateful response to God’s generosity]

Out of God’s great love, we have been given all that we have. We are eternally thankful for God’s gifts.  How do you give thanks? One way is sharing your time, talent and treasure with your parish. 

All members of the parish are invited to our Ministry in Action Weekend on Saturday, October 28 and Sunday, October 29.  This is an opportunity for you to inform your fellow parishioners about the gifts and abilities you offer to both St. Paul and the wider community.  And to learn about the many ministries and ways you can use your gifts and talents in service and gratitude to God.

 All things come of thee, O Lord, and of thine own have we given thee. (1 Corinthians 29:14)
