Featured Reflection

A highlight from our monthly newsletter

 


The Challenge and Joy of Stewardship

Merciful God,


Thank you for the gifts You provide—our very selves, our time, and our possessions.

Help us to use these gifts wisely and to share them generously. Show us the things we ought to do, and give us the grace and power to do them.


Help us to care about our neighbors, and especially to serve those with special needs.


Good stewardship, it seems to me, is to use wisely the gifts God gives us, and to share these gifts generously, as God invites and commands.  

Good stewardship is a daily opportunity—but there are many special opportunities along the way.

  • This may be an especially good time to greet LSS/NCA and to seek ways to support its work with refugees.
  • The weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas are a traditional time for warm-hearted giving.   Include in that, extra giving to help BLC meet it 2018 budget.
  • Soon it will again be BLC’s turn to sponsor the Hypothermia Center to serve the homeless, and you can help with your time, goods, meals, money, smiles.  
  • BLC has improved its cash flow challenges by paying down the mortgage on our property. That effort continues with your special gifts.
  • We are dealing with many needs and opportunities for maintenance and upgrading of our grounds and facilities. Can you help?
  • Have you worked on your estate planning—and does it include BLC?
  • The BLC budget for 2019 certainly is reachable, but it will require that you stretch a bit more and increase your giving.

How will you act as a Good Steward?   It is a challenge and a joy…..
