Sunday, November 10, Stewardship of Life at Its End: Snoopy and the Peanut’s gang creator, Charles Shultz, has been considered one of our most articulate Christian theologians. Sketching common life, his comics and movies distilled relationships and growing up’s challenges to simple figures and words. In child-like wonder, he named reality while also teaching the mystery of faith.
Weekly Stewardship devotionals have been created as a companion to the weekly sermon during the eight weeks of Stewardship. Please use these devotionals to meditate on throughout the week. Printed copies are available next to the printed sermons outside the transept.
Sunday, October 27, Stewardship of Technology: Many of us can’t imagine life without technology, but even those of us who value it see its dark side. We’re aware of the research on rising rates of loneliness, depression, and suicide. Cultural critics crystallize our concerns: “Americans no longer talk to each other, they entertain each other. They do not exchange ideas, they exchange images.”
Sunday, October 20, Stewardship of Creation: Think about what we get to name in our lives. Some of us have had the privilege of naming children. Others have named pets. A few of us have probably named our cars. We name these things because they mean something to us; they serve more than a utilitarian purpose in our lives. We take great care in selecting each name, seeking to reflect the nature of the person or thing being named and honoring the meaning it carries.
