Money Matters

As our Stewardship 2018 campaign winds down, parishioners have their final opportunity to think about what they plan to give to our church this year.

While I tend myself to be pretty traditional, striving for a tithe (10%) or more of my salary, I recognize that there are many ways to look at stewardship. The Spirit of God moves people in different ways.

That said, I also recognize that many of my colleagues are much more doctrinaire about tithing. They believe that God has high expectations of all of us. To them, the signed pledge card and proportional giving should be the norm.

However we think of these issues ourselves, there is no doubt that in the realm of the Spirit, money matters. —J. Douglas Ousley
