The S Word -- it's not Scary!


I'm convinced people hear the S word (stewardship) and immediately tune out, change the channel, turn the page or click the nearest link. That may be partly because the S word comes with a lot of baggage. In the Bible the steward is usually associated with controversy and accountability, such as ripping off his master.

But stewardship is also thought of as mundane, or irrelevant to our lives. I confess that's how I regarded it until I learned stewardship is about more than finances and fundraising. Check the above video and see why responsible stewardship is something that's a core element of our Catholic faith. Then visit What's Your Talent and see how you can take part in this weekend's Stewardship Conference in Burnaby.
