WHO ARE WE...AND WHO ARE WE (BECOMING)?

Henri Nouwen offers an impactful way for us to think about stewardship and Who are we...:

“When we seek to raise funds, we are not saying, ‘Please, could you help out because lately it’s been hard.’ Rather, we are declaring, ‘we have a vision that is amazing and exciting. We are inviting you to invest yourself through the resources that God has given you - your energy, your prayers, and your money – in the work which God has called us.’” — The Spirituality of Fund-Raising
