Pastor's Thoughts for May 2009


Each month our pastor writes to us from our Turlock church to share his thoughts on a topic of religious significance. His goal is to link the word of God as it is presented in the Bible and apply it to the context of our daily lives. Although each of these messages is dated they are in fact timeless in their spiritual significance.


Stewardship means different things to different people. Many Christians associate stewardship with church giving campaigns. Unfortunately, few Christians understand the full biblical picture of stewardship. Still fewer know how to be effective stewards of what God has given us.

From Sunday April 19 through Sunday May 17 we are looking at stewardship from five different perspectives: talents (our work in the world), environment being responsible for the earth), fellowman (caring for each other), institutions (the church and family), and money (responsible money managing).

Following the message time each week there are a few moments devoted for instant feedback; and then on Friday evenings from 6-7 an opportunity to openly discuss the subject with each other.

As God's people we all want to be responsible stewards. To do that we need to help one another grow from where we are to where we can be our best. See you in Church.
