I’m happy to share this year’s stewardship theme, “Shining Our Light.” That theme, taken from the fifth chapter of Matthew’s Gospel, speaks to us as individuals and as a community of faith. Individually, each of us is called to let God’s light shine through our work, our friendships, our service and our giving. We are called to be light bearers. It is a powerful calling.
As a faith community, Holy Trinity is called to shine the light of Christ. We do this through our worship, welcoming, pastoral care and ministry to each other and the wider community. At Holy Trinity, I’m often inspired by the way God uses the time and talent our community members and attenders contribute to keep Holy Trinity’s light shining. Some participate in our worship either by providing music, assisting in the service or leading Family Worship. Some help prepare the worship space with flowers or altar vestments. Others provide food and welcome for coffee hour. Still others help our children shine their light by participating in Vacation Bible School. Our building and grounds are maintained by people who share their light through those services. And everyone contributes the bright light of their presence.
Our annual pledge drive provides the opportunity for each of us to identify what we feel called to contribute financially to ensure Holy Trinity continues to shine the light and love of Christ brightly. I invite you to join me in pledging as we work together to shine our light in church, in our community and in our lives. And, you are invited to attend a Stewardship Breakfast on Sunday, November 24, 2019.
