Why I don’t want to be like the early church.

Learning from and knowing about the early church is not the same as imitating the early church. Krista Dalton thinks about our relationship with Scripture, particularly the communities behind them. Were they recording an ideal past or imaging an ideal future?

Stewardship

Stewardship is a spiritual issue. What we do with what we get is important.

God has blessed us. Our thankful return of the first fruits is a grateful acknowledgment to God that God is the source of our wealth and blessing. And God has made us responsible for the welfare of our neighbor, especially the poor and vulnerable.
