Principles of Christian Stewardship
Financial giving is an important element of our spiritual relationship with God. According to Herb Miller, author of Full Disclosure, there are twenty financial stewardship themes that recur and evolve in the Old and New Testaments.
Full Disclosure identifies these themes, lists their historical importance, and illustrates contemporary application for each theme. The themes fall into three categories:
(1) Why should we give?
(2) How does giving benefit us? And
(3) How should we give?
Care of Creation
As we are called by God to care for creation, we support policies that protect the natural resources that sustain all life on Earth. The Church calls for policies that mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, promote sustainable energy, the safe and just use of natural resources, and support communities impacted by a lack of environmental stewardship.
