Workshop will examine new approach to stewardship

Fbrom Florida-

When most church members hear the word "stewardship" they think money. Capital campaigns. The annual pitch for tithing.

But the Rev. Canon Chuck Robertson says proper stewardship involves more than fund-raising. It's about taking care of each other, of newcomers, and of the community at large.

"It's not about a program," he said, "it's about a new way of thinking about who we are."

Robertson, the Canon to the Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church and author of 10 books including "Transforming Stewardship," will host a workshop on Oct. 1 from 9 a.m. to noon at St. John's Episcopal Church. The public is invited.
