Stewardship ‘needs leadership’

By on May 1, 2004

Clergy must provide leadership and encouragement to ongoing Christian stewardship or nothing will happen, Archbishop Douglas Hambidge (retired metropolitan of British Columbia and Yukon) told a recent stewardship conference for the diocese of Moosonee’s Cree parishes of the James Bay deanery.

The priest must share “his/her personal understanding and practice of financial stewardship” and challenge parishioners to “re-examine their own,” said Archbishop Hambidge, who was the keynote speaker.

Believers should realize, said the archbishop, that “my life is an offering of faith; I am aware of all God gives me, and I respond with a gift of my faith to God.”
