stewardship series sermonettes

for 6 weeks, tri-county ministry pastors focused their sermons on stewardship.
because of our rotation schedule, this meant that we each preached 2 sermons.
no, this does not mean i only preached twice in the 6 weeks.
this means that i preached 2 sermons 7 times each.

yeah, that’s right.

i preached sermon #1 at 6 congregations over the course of 3 weeks, and sermon #2 at 7 congregations over the course of 3 weeks.
i knew what i was going to say really well by the end…

sermon #1 was all about something to do with stewardship: HOSPITALITY-wise

sermon #2 was all about something to do with stewardship: LIVING and LOVING and SERVING in our DAILY LIVES
i chose two texts (the body of Christ text in Romans 12:4-21 and the light of the world text in Matthew 5:14-16)
i showed a video (the responses were collected at the congregations during my first round of stewardship sermons)
i talked about how one small light can dispell darkness
i talked about how we are given individual gifts, talents and blessings and then are called to share those in the world so that together we are a unified body of Christ
i talked about how we are the light of the world, that we are the beacons to show God’s love for others to others, and that we need to remember that each word we say and each action we do in our daily lives are truly part of being God’s stewards
