Stewardship, mission, sharing the good news, discipleship and caring for others are all interconnected. When we approach stewardship from this angle, we soon realize that God has given us so much more than money to carry out the work of the Church.
Oftentimes when we discuss stewardship we talk about time, talent, and treasure. All three are important if we are to be good stewards of God's gifts.
