Stewardship as a Circle of Trust

Stewardship means responsible management of something entrusted to one’s care. Stewardship means giving part of ourselves to other people and projects. When we give, we enrich others’ lives as well as our own.

As its name suggests, the “Circles of Trust” program we’ve been exploring here at UUFD nurtures trusting outreach and builds community. Trust is also central to stewardship. Trusting that if we give of ourselves to another — a person, an institution, a community — our giving will benefit others and return blessings to ourselves. What stories of trust inspire your stewardship to others?
