As of Monday, January 7, 2008 I am no longer a DRE but the Director of Stewardship. The response has been interesting from friends and parishioners. Many think it is a promotion. I do not; more of a lateral move. Also, I am still responsible for Adult Formation programs, since the children's programs have grown tremendously in the time I have been DRE. Eventually, we will have a person in charge of adult formation. When depends on how well I do my job with stewardship.
So what is stewardship? The understanding that all we have and are is a gift from God and that we respond in love to that gift.
