This year, the Stewardship committee has been working hard to present a new theme each month representing God’s Creation. We have had live animals in our church, a local meteorologist talking about climate change, gardening, and more.
This month the focus is on our Giving Tree. The Giving Tree has ties to The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein (click on the title to read the poem). Silverstein’s poem/story focuses on the relationship between a boy and a tree throughout both of their lives. As they progress throughout life, they have different needs. The boy needs help, the tree is able to give him that help all the way to the end. In return, the tree is feeling fulfilled from helping this boy.
Our congregation and community is filled with individuals and groups that need help. The Stewardship committee is hoping that you can help the tree by acting on its behalf; reaching out to others who need help and making new connections.
It takes a village to raise a child. It is a lifelong commitment. How can we help each other honor that commitment? One small act can mean the world to a person in need.
