This week we finish our sermon series “Grounded.” Stewardship is important all year round, but this is time we focus on what our giving will be for 2022. Stewardship is how we live and how we share what we have and how we make the world a better place. Each year we look ahead to see how as a community of faith we can focus the gifts we receive into the mission and ministry of the Church. It all begins by being “Grounded.” In spiritual terms, being grounded is a way of speaking to our relationship with the Divine. We are centered or grounded in our relationship with God in Christ Jesus. Once we are grounded in God we have an experience of loving grace that reminds us we are beloved children of God. Being grounded in God and in grace challenges us to offer that grace to others. Generosity is a by-product of our being grounded in God. This week, as we prepare to offer our estimate of giving cards for 2022, we are invited to ground ourselves in gratitude for all we have received from God and from God’s amazing grace at work in our lives. May being Grounded in God, grace, generosity and gratitude be reflected in our lives this week.
