Finding Grace & Growth

Originally Published by the Diocese of El Camino Real.
Stewardship, like any other spiritual practice, only grows through its prioritization in the lives of Christians and the discovery of finding God and grace through that practice. Through understanding that all that we are and have are direct outcomes of God’s activity in God’s world, we believe that grace and growth in the new life that we find in Jesus Christ will be encouraged.  Our response of placing God first directly results in a sense of freedom that comes with faith and increases the spread of God’s love in this part of His kingdom.  It brings joy to our hearts and minds to realize that who we are is a child of God and what we have is God’s to begin with.

We no longer are as entangled in materialistic desires, but rather begin to see our lives as gifts and what we have as potential uses for ministry
