- Stewardship | Mysite
Feel-Good Giving 2 Corinthians 9:5; 7: So I (Paul) thought it was necessary to urge these brothers and sisters to go to you ahead of me and get ready in advance the gift you promised to make. Then will it be ready when I arrive, and will show that you give because you want to, not because you to have to. . . You should each give, then, as you have decided, not with regret or out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly. . . A few years ago, a Christian denomination did a study concerning stewardship. The study included various realms of giving, which included the offering of money, time, and talents. What the study concluded was that the people felt a sense of guilt with what they were giving. So contrary to a popular stewardship theme among many congregations, “Give until it hurts”, the real pain was because people felt, as individuals, they could do more, a lot more, than what they were doing. In terms of donations, let us consider “Feel-Good Giving” -- Giving until it feels good! Stewardship is a time of spiritual self-reflection. It is when we take a moment to prayerfully reflect on our commitment to God in terms of sharing our time, talents, and money. As we take this spiritual inventory of ourselves, we need to prayerfully consider what to donate. After all, it is a spiritual promise to our Lord. In this vow, let us look upon stewardship with joy. After all, it is true thanks to God. Donations of our time, talents, and money should be “Feel-Good Giving”.

Thanks! BECOME A VOLUNTEER Volunteer is defined as a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task. There is something more to becoming a person who freely gives time and effort to the work of Christ at St. Philip. The feeling of the heart (sometimes called the reason of the heart) is the foundation of being a volunteer in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is our challenge to respond to that feeling. Yes, it is our faith that brings us to give our actions freely. HOW YOU CAN HELP The most important thing you can do is to ! This is a simple act that will make our ministries grow in the parish. When we pray, the Lord hears us. PRAY We need workers who will spend the time in the various ministries at St. Philip. If there is something you want to do, speak to a Vestry member or Ft. Terry. The still small voice of the Lord calls you from your prayers. How will you respond? As you pray, be aware that the Lord may call you into a leadership position. It is a simple matter that sometimes you can go beyond your comfort level. Many times, leadership is not sought out, it just happens. Leadership results from of a prayerful harmony of events. Be open to hear a call that rises from your prayers.

When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” Matthew 9:35-38) (
