*Stewardship Reflection

From Sunday by Sunday Reflections on Stewardship prepared by the Ven. Dr. Michael Pollesel.

Luke 8:26-39
This story poses many challenging questions to those who would be faithful stewards in our world. Questions like: What ‘‘demons’ have we allowed into our lives, demons which take our focus off God’s dream for the whole created order?
