Kommunicating Kerygma (ke·ryg·ma)

Peaceable Kingdom, oil on canvas

2nd Sunday of Advent
December 4, 2016
Matthew 3:1-12

Background:

Last week it was mentioned that, with the first Sunday of Advent, a new church year began; throughout the year the gospel texts will be drawn mostly from Mathew’s gospel. Matthew’s description of the relationship between Jesus and John is much different than Luke’s. While the diversity may bring with it some struggle, it may also help us to realize that our God and the ways of God are always beyond our limited ability to fully grasp the fullness of God.

Stewardship Theme for Fall Treasure Pledge Appeal

–St. Matthias Stewardship Committee is pleased to announce the theme for the 2016 Fall Treasure Pledge appeal:

GRACE – GRATITUDE – GENEROSITY

Pledging for Stewardship of Treasure

Joe Janusz
I give financial support to St. Matthias because:

    1. My giving is an obligation. In the Old Testament and in the New, the people are commanded to give for certain needs.
    2. My giving is a privilege. The churches of Macedonia were models of generosity even though they were poor. They gladly gave out of gratitude toward God and love of their brethren.
    3. My giving is one dimension of my stewardship. Our faithfulness as stewards in this “little thing” of money has a bearing on what other responsibilities will be given.
    4. My giving is an act of worship. The Old Testament saints could only approach God in worship with a sacrifice.
    5. My giving is an investment. Jesus encouraged believers to give in order to “lay up treasures in heaven”.
    6. My giving is an act of self‑sacrifice. All Christian service should be a sacrifice to God.
    7. My giving is an expression of brotherly love and of Christian unity.
