Support our 2024 Annual Fund Campaign

Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above…” James 1:17, NRSV

Our pledge campaign this year focuses on our gifts; not just on the things we wrap with paper and bows, and not the things we put in envelopes or give from our bank accounts, but all of the gifts that we give throughout the year. We frequently talk about the three T’s of Time, Talent, and Treasure when we discuss our gifts, without really focusing on the power of each of those elements. Let us focus for now on ‘time’.

Time, they say, is the greatest gift, because it is a gift that we can’t replace. When we give of our treasure or our talent, they come from renewable streams, to some extent. But time, once given, can’t be taken back or reclaimed. While I have only journeyed with you a short while, I am already coming to understand that this community is generous with their time – and I am grateful for it!

In his timeless work, The Little Prince, Saint-Exupéry says, of the Prince’s tending of his beloved rose, “It is the time you have spent on your rose, that makes your rose so important.” Our church is that rose, to be tended gently and blessed abundantly by the effort, love, prayer, and time the Church of the Holy Spirit family gives.

In this season where we uphold our gifts, I hold you up in light, love, and leadership. Over the coming weeks you will be hearing more about our gifts in the form of a letter from me, from families during our worship, and in our common life together. You are a gift, each of you, and you are gifts to each other and to a world in need of our love; certainly blessed with every perfect gift that comes from God above.
