Stewardship Corner - Lent is a contemplative forty-day period of time in the Church Year set aside for the Christian to reflect on his/her sin and unworthiness before the Lord and then to wonder at the grace of God Who gave His only begotten Son to die to atone for that sin and place upon us His righteousness that we might, through His grace, be made worthy. Stewardship is our response to God’s amazing and abundant grace showered upon us through Jesus. May we be prompted to live lives worthy of the sacrifices that both God and Jesus made for all people. Let us declare the praises of Him, “who called [us] out of darkness into His marvelous light.” (1 Peter 2:9).
