Wisdom from above is . . . full of mercy and good fruits
What's "Renewal" about? It's about God rebuilding our spirits to be strong and steadfast enough to withstand the storms of life - with help from God and each other, of course. One way to cooperate in God's project of rebuilding us is to practice loving as God loves, and fasting as Jesus taught. A great way to do both of those is to tithe our talent and our treasure. Read the sermon here.
And here's a picture of Sandy Kneen and me making "Stewardship Salad," a wonderful visual representation of what tithing looks like that I learned from my ordaining bishop, the Rt. Rev. Herbert S. Thompson, of blessed memory.
