We are in the final week of our 2012 stewardship campaign and we will celebrate your gifts this Sunday, November 20th at a festive coffee hour after the 10 a.m. service. We would love to see everyone there!
Our Speaker on October 23rd was Dick Terhune. Here’s what Dick had to say:
I’m going to share something personal with you, so hold on to your seats . . .
I personally believe that it is not hard to be a Christian; not hard to be an Episcopalian;
not at all hard to be a member of Saint Michael’s; and ridiculously easy to be a good Steward.
I personally believe you can do all of that if you just do Five Things:
1. Show up
4. Care, and…
5. Do Something About It!
Part of my Stewardship and personal participation as a member of Saint Michael’s is serving as a Chalicist. When I think of this Chalice, the common cup we share, the Cup of Christ, I think of another word for “cup” and “chalice” . . .vessel. The Vessel of Christ, overflowing. Taking a sip from this vessel fills you with so much more than you thought you could take in. When we drink from this cup, we become Vessels of Christ.
When you drink from this cup on Sunday, when you consider your Stewardship, think of yourself as a Vessel of Christ, overflowing.
The rest . . . is ridiculously easy.
