Stewardship Thought
May 1, 2016 - In today's Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples to "...not let your hearts be troubled or afraid". In these modern times, this message is so important. It's so easy to get caught up in the spirit of fear and dread. We are called to be an Easter people sharing the Gospel with joy in our hearts. Am I sharing my gifts from a place of joy? Am I grateful for all of the blessings God has given me?
