When life gives you lemons…

… make a giving program out of lemonade!

Stewardship Moment: “Be Peculiar”

I needed to share some information with one of my congregations about some strange letters we’d received, and not make it too scary, and also take an opportunity to teach about tithing and challenge folks to greater giving in a fun way, so I thought I’d combine all three!

(My friend, who also happens to be the chairperson of our Conference Council on Finance and Administration, has already pointed out that I should clarify that tithing is based not on what one has, but on one’s income, which is a different thing indeed.)

  1. But there IS an imminent alien invasion. My whacked out guy says that our alphabet is our secret weapon BECAUSE THE ALIENS CAN’T UNDERSTAND OUR WRITTEN LANGUAGE. Also, the trees are on our side, but all birds are in with the aliens.

    • You have one too? Maybe they know each other. We do run into all kinds in churches, don’t we– it’s not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick…

  2. The recorded version is just as good as the live version!
    And a bit safer too, if the alien invasion is really imminent. :)

    • But since I’m in league with the aliens, maybe being in my church is the safest place to be to withstand the invasion. ;)
