Being Stewards

If you have much, give of your wealth; if you have little, give of your heart.

Rumi

What is stewardship?

Stewardship, at its most basic level, is the careful and responsible management of something to one’s care.  Being stewards is at heart a spiritual practice. 

At North Parish, stewardship is about caring for this congregation and the values it represents.  As members and friends, we all are its stewards, and we accept responsibility for protecting, managing, and caring for this spiritual community.  We hold it in trust for generations of the past who created it, and we nurture it for future generations who will inherit it.

Ours is a great religious tradition, and we are shaping its present and future. We hope you will join us on a continuing journey of spiritual growth, greater access and equality for all. Your support – through offering your time, talent, and treasure – make that happen.

What can you do?

These are a few ways we can express our commitment to one other and to our religion. Our active and joyous support changes us from mere consumers into stewards of this faith and our community. Together, our conscious and intentional choices help create a beloved community right here on earth.
