Stewardship for the Holidays

The Christmas gift giving season is often a time of conflict for believers and their families. There is a temptation to express our love for each other in ways that we cannot really afford financially. Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, has produced a twenty day study on stewardship that is the perfect way to prepare for the upcoming gift-giving season. The study only takes 15-20 minutes each day and this would be a valuable addition to your family worship time.

This will help you and your family focus on what is truly valuable and provide needed perspective on what gifts are truly special. As always let me know your thoughts. We will come back to this issue as the season progresses.
