Generosity in quotes

“One image and symbol in particular brings together the dynamics of mission and stewardship in a fundamental way—the Eucharist table. It’s no wonder that the early Christians gathered daily around table for fellowship and the breaking of bread. It’s around the table that our physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are met. It’s to the Eucharistic table that we bring our gifts, signs of our faithful response to God’s love in Christ. And it’s around the table that God’s gifts are blessed, broken, and shared with not only the people of God, but the whole world. It’s at the Eucharistic table that the church practices both stewardship and mission.”

Richard H. Bliese, president of Luther Seminary, Saint Paul, MN, from an online newsletter to friends of the school
