I’ve been asked to help you in your season of stewardship because it is time to fill out and return your pledge cards. Why? The vestry needs to know how to fund your life and ministries in 2019. Pledge cards will be available today as you depart!
Once, while touring London, I asked Bishop Howe if we could make the short trip to Canterbury. He said, “No, they are having a special ceremony but I can get you into a place where others cannot go. How would you like to go to Lambeth Palace?”
So we went for tea at Lambeth Palace and we were able to visit the Lambeth Library. The Library has been a repository for Church of England archives for the last 683 years. Thomas Cranmer worked there on the first BCP in the 1500’s at a small desk on the Library balcony.
The point is - be ready for God to surprise you with His generosity and take you places others cannot go.
