3 PASTORAL MESSAGE Let us try an experiment. Before continuing to read the remainder of this article, spend some time examining and reflecting on the Nativity Icon. What do you see? Can you identify all those present? Where are you most drawn? Perhaps no Icon in Orthodoxy is as densely composed as the Nativity Icon, and our limited space here does not allow me to expand each of the motifs in this Icon. However, there is one aspect that I would like to ask each of us to remember and focus upon during our Fast in preparation for Christ s birth. Notice that Christ is wrapped not in a large swaddling blanket, but rather in thin strips of material resembling bandages. See how the cave is dark, and his bed appears more like a coffin than a crib. Each of these small details points to the essential truth that Christ, the Son of God made flesh, became incarnate in order to die. In fact he is the only human who was born for that explicit purpose. St Cyril even goes as far as to call Christ s incarnation the first nails of the crucifixion. We are born to strive and peruse eternal life, Christ being Life Eternal was born so that through His death and resurrection we might all share in His Life. It is for this reason that the Church asks us to prepare for Christmas with a period of fasting. Through our sacrifices during Advent, we can meditate on and appreciate the sacrifice that Christ undertook, not only at the time of His crucifixion, but from the very beginning of His earthly life. This Christmas season I ask that we not only focus on the joy of our salvation (the end result), but also upon the process by which we are saved. God, who does not suffer by His nature, voluntarily became a man so as to share in the suffering of the pains of human life and thereby raise us out of our suffering. The greatness of the incarnation is found in the fact that out of God s immeasurable love for humanity He chose to lead us by joining Himself to us. Who around you is suffering? Who do you see in need? Who in your life could use a companion to lead them to refreshment by joining in their pain? Let us use Christ s incarnation as our example during the season of Advent to set aside a portion of our merriment in favor of joining and easing the distress of those in our midst. This way we complete the second portion of the traditional Christmas greeting in our words, and more importantly in our actions +Fr. Panagiotis CHRIST IS BORN GLORIFY HIM

4 We all share dreams for our church. There are countless missions to serve others in our community and beyond. In seeking to meet these needs we have a simple reality, fulfilling the multitude of needs depends on stewardship contributions. Hopefully, you will invest a few minutes to read about a couple more efficient methods of giving. It isn t required that you even fully understand them, as it is meant to trigger a deeper conversation with your accountant or financial advisor that best suits your situation and family needs. Cash and checks represent nearly all St. Peter and Paul s income, but we will review a couple other common giving strategies. They are used frequently in other charitable organizations, and are a win-win, with substantial benefits for both the church and the steward. Donors can often save on taxes by directly donating non-cash gifts like stocks, land and other assets. For example, if the donor sells a stock, they might have to pay a capital gains tax, which could take a significant bite out of the total proceeds. The amount of the tax will depend on the time period held and the amount of the gain. However, if the stock is donated directly to the church, the donation avoids the capital gains tax. More importantly, the entire fair market value of the stock can be taken as a charitable contribution on their income tax return. While the entire market value can be realized by the church, the significant tax advantage of the deduction benefits the donor. An interesting twist on this strategy is to establish a Donor Advised Fund (DAF). As markets reach new peaks, donors are increasingly giving appreciated assets as contributions to their donor-advised funds. This is how it works. Instead of donating directly to the church, donate into a DAF account. Setting up this account can realize the tax deduction, but can stretch the timing of donations. There are firms offering varying versions of this form of giving. Ideally, you can fund it with appreciated securities, to save on the capital gains tax that would be due if sold, but cash can be contributed as well. You receive a charitable donation deduction immediately, but can spread the donations to your favorite church or charity over years. Meanwhile the assets in the DAF can continue to grow so your contributions can increase over time. Depending on the DAF, you can control when you write actual checks to the church. Summary of the benefits: You can take a tax deduction in the year you set up the DAF, which allows flexibility on your deduction. You can choose the charities you want to support over time. You can support any number of charitable organizations and make those contributions without having to retain records for separate contributions. You can start a tradition of giving for your family. Given the blessings we've all been given, it could be a huge benefit to teach our children the value of philanthropy. We can involve them in the decisions about what charities, along with our church, to support. Though many financial institutions manage Donor Advised Funds, one of the more popular is the Fidelity Charitable fund. Their website is included below. On their home page is a section that more fully explains the workings of this type of account. Though similar to a foundation structure in some respects, it is far simpler, flexible, and cheaper. Not all of the DAF are the same, so it does make sense to investigate further or approach the parish council with any questions if you wish to explore this path for giving. Fidelity Charitable: Some other sites to learn more about giving: The Chronicle of Philanthropy: Foundation Source: National Philanthropic Trust: The parish council would like to thank you for your ongoing support of our church community. We take great care of our members' contributions. While it is imperative that we spend our funds wisely, it is also important to learn how to give wisely.

5 What Kind of Steward can I be? In the November issue of The Messenger an article was written titled What Kind of Steward am I? In this article you were asked to reflect upon yourself and asked to answer how you contribute and participate in the life of the Church. How are you Stewarding the gifts you have been given? Considering the treasure or financial aspect of Stewardship, are you a dues paying steward or are you giving proportional to your means...and is it sacrificial? Stewardship is not just about the money. Are you contributing your time and are you contributing your talents to the life of the Church or are you disengaged? Are you the type of Steward who accepts the responsibility to faithfully protect the Church and prudently care for its gifts? These are some very difficult questions to reflect upon, indeed. We all have been blessed with amazing gifts from God. Everything comes from God and it should be our natural reaction to give thanks for these blessings. We have also been given our beautiful Church building and our community center where we come to pray, to learn, and to share fellowship with one another. It is our community. Our forefathers, with the blessings from God, built this beautiful church and community center and passed it on to us. We as stewards of SS Peter and Paul, are not only called upon to faithfully Steward these gifts, but also to nurture and grow them as well. It is also the Church's responsibility to steward us. The Church must provide different ministries to the faithful to help nurture us and help us grow in our faith. Although attending, worshiping, and participating in Divine Liturgy every Sunday should be first and foremost, our parish offers so much more for us. Here is a list of the different ministries offered at SS Peter and Paul: Parish Council, Philoptochos, Choir, Chanters, Prosphoro makers, Readers, Ushers, Dynamis, Cancer Support, Divorce Rebuilders, Coffee Hour Fellowship, Bookstore, Men s Bible Study, Greek Fest, Coffee Connection Adult Education, Outreach Programs, Feed the Homeless programs, Christmas Gift projects, Morning Bible Study, Orthodox Parent Association (O.P.A.), Church School Teachers and Directors. Also the ministries for our youth: Acolytes (Altar Boys), Agape Pre School, Hope Group, Church School, Greek School, Youth Group, Faith Love and Joy, Jr GOYA, Sr GOYA, Basketball (six different age groups), Junior Olympics, Project Mexico, St Nicholas Gift Project, Christmas Pageant. As you can see, the church has many different ministries and ways for us to stay connected to our community. Do we participate in them? How can we use the Church and its ministries to grow deeper in our faith and to grow closer to God? How can I use my time and talent to grow the church ministries and to make them stronger? Every member of the parish should have already received your Stewardship Pledge Cards. Prior to filling them out, please take some time and consider these questions: What gifts has the Church entrusted to me? How am I fulfilling my role as a steward of these gifts? What sacrifices can I make (both financial and my time and talent) to help my church community grow? What Kind of Steward can I be?
