Stewardship: an epiphany!
Author
Sarah S Butter
Abstract
The author makes the biblical, theological, and liturgical case for the season of Epiphany as a faithful and effective liturgical home for the practice of stewardship campaigns in 21st century American Protestant congregations. She reviews historical and contemporary meanings and models of stewardship, emphasizing the contextual and adaptive nature of annual giving campaigns in churches. Her research explores her own experience and the experience of five early adopter congregations with the model. Her findings affirm the liturgical, Christological resonance of the model and its faithfulness and effectiveness. In addition, she points to its powerful potential for missional interpretation of stewardship.
