4 From Your Stewardship Committee Stewardship Nuggets Anyone who spent time talking with Tom Robinson quickly discovered his passion for stewardship, and although most people think about money when they hear the word stewardship, this was not the primary focus of Tom s stewardship mission. He wisely understood that true stewardship was not just about dropping our money in the Sunday offering, but began with fully opening our hearts to the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you were to ask Tom, How are you?, he would reply Grateful!, knowing in his heart that all of his (and our) time, talents, and money are gifts from God. Tom helped remind us that true stewardship was not just about money, but rather nurturing attitudes of the heart attitudes of justice, kindness, and humility. These shape the way we view, use, and give our money and possessions in God s earthly kingdom. Perhaps Tom s greatest stewardship legacy, was his stewardship of attention attention to the Gospel and to others. He always had a positive joyous attitude, a kind word for everyone, and was always first to greet visitors to St. Mark s. His stewardship of attention was the gospel message of love, joy, and care for others. Tom reminded us that as children of God, our call to stewardship extends to everything we do, even the small everyday interactions with friends, neighbors, and strangers. Tom s dedication to St. Mark s and to stewardship was a blessing, and his presence, grace, and wisdom will be missed. Matthew 25:40 The King will reply, Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.
