~~~~~~~ Mission & Stewardship~~~~~~~
Stewardship Moment:
has been my experience that when a family plans
to give, whether a tithe or a greater amount, and
follows that plan, they will tend to give
substantially more than the family gives out of
excess, for there is rarely any excess. Ron Blue, author and
financial planner
adequate health care, quality education and basic
human rights. Inspired by God’s promise of
abundant life, PWS&D envisions a sustainable,
compassionate and just world. By participating in
the work of PWS&D and its global partners, we do
what Jesus taught us and help to make this vision a
reality. We respond together. PWS&D responds to
need around the world
