Stewardship of Time
With all our time-saving devices, why do we seem to have less time than ever?
Stewardship spirituality helps us evaluate how we spend our time and set our priorities in order. Time is God’s amazing gift to us. Time once spent can never be recovered. Recognizing how precious every day, every hour is, we want to be good stewards of our time.
We ask ourselves:
- - How much time am I committing to prayer?
- - What time (quality and quantity) am I giving my spouse, family, friends?
- - Am I a good steward of time spent at work?
- - How many hours a week do I devote to helping others in need?
- - Am I unable to enjoy the present because I am regretting the past or fretting the future?
- - How am I abusing time by excessive, or even inappropriate, use of technology?
- - Am I a good steward of my body by taking time for exercise, rest, recreation?
In prayer, we ask God to guide us as we make decisions on how we will proportion our time. We make time, rather than try to find time, for our priorities.
Stewardship of Talent
Talents come in all shapes and sizes. When God created each of us, we were given a unique set of talents. As stewards, we are called to spend time discovering, cultivating, and sharing our God-given talents.
At Saint Brigid Parish, we want to help you discover your talents and help you find ministries, both in the parish and beyond, that are a good fit for your God-given talents. Many of our parishioners have benefitted from attending a Living Your Strengths Workshop. Knowing our strengths helps us choose the most effective use of our time and even helps us make practical decisions about our jobs, relationships, and service.
Our Hospitality Ministry is eager to help you find the right fit at Saint Brigid. For more information about discovering your talents, becoming involved in parish life, or serving beyond our parish, contact our Hospitality Ministry.
