November/December 2020

About this issue:

As we approach the end of a disturbing and volatile year, one important fact can help keep us grounded. God is our Gift-Giver showering us with an everlasting and lavish love. God's pleasure in us is not based on how much we produce or earn. If everything we have is a gift, how can we use what we've been given to share that good news with those who haven't heard? This issue looks at the important practice and principle of stewardship in all areas of life.
