Transformed by Generosity Weekend

This weekend we celebrated our annual stewardship campaign. For the most part it's been a great weekend, we had a few logistical glitches, but overall it's been outstanding. We're blessed to have had Richard Blackmon from Viscern speaking this weekend. Richard and his wife Debby have been long-time friends of Schweitzer. Richard preached a great message about three stewardship stories: the poor woman who gave all she had, Zaccheus, and one from his experience working with churches. Richard asked the question, "What is it that causes people to give radically to the church?" He then explained his Popeye theory of stewardship, "That's all I can stand, and I can't stands no more." When you say that you can't stand the world the way it is any more, what better way could you invest in change than in the work of God through the church. I listened to this message all four services and each time it hit me in a different way. I can't wait to see what God does in the hearts of our congregation with regard to stewardship.
