On February 26, Union-PSCE student Marcia Rauch reviewed Jan Karon’s Miss Fannie’s Hat. Today, she expands on her review by making that book (and Luke’s story of the widow who gave all she had) the centerpiece of a session for adults about stewardship. As Marcia says, “Stewardship is a vital part of our lives as members of a Christian community. Too often the time of the church year that is designated for the annual “stewardship campaign” becomes a time of sermons and minutes for mission that can sometimes be very similar from year to year. The congregation expects this campaign and can thus miss the real message of what it means to give back to God. Miss Fannie’s Hat is a beautiful story that brings the message of stewardship to us in a fresh way.”
