Stewardship Stu here with a question. Are you a Bob Marley fan? If you are perhaps you remember his musical poem about love. For me it speaks to all that is essential to stewardship. We have been given wonderful gifts that we need to grow and to share. He explains it like this: "Learning to love.... Loving to learn..... Learning to learn.... Loving to love." Stewardship is a response to love unearned. I'll see you in Church. Stu
