A Theology for Christian Stewardship

A Theology for Christian Stewardship

 

A Theology for Christian Stewardship by T. A. Kantonen has been a standard stewardship text since it was first published in 1955. It continues to be widely studied and widely quoted.
“It is high time,” says Kantonen, “to examine stewardship from the point of view of the theology of the gospel. A clear view of the intimate relation between evangelical theology and stewardship is of vital concern to both. Both have their starting point in an encounter with the living Christ. Theology seeks to think out the meaning of that encounter. Stewardship seeks to live it out.”
“It is my earnest hope,” says Kantonen, “that this book will serve the twofold purpose of affording ministers and theological students a bridge from doctrinal theology to the actual life and work of the church and helping Christian laymen to obtain a firmer grasp of the Christian truth which gives substance and purpose to their activities in the Lord’s service.”

Clergy Mental Health and the Doctrine of Justification by Robert D. Preus

Clergy Mental Health and the Doctrine of Justification by Robert D. Preus

View Details

Unfortunately, some Christians—even some clergy—are convinced that strong faith will exclude depression. Rev. Preus disagrees with that theology of glory, arguing that “poor mental health does not necessarily denote poor spiritual health.” The Gospel is sweet medicine for the soul, but other healing may still be needed for the body and mind.

Presentation led by Rev. Dr. Lee Hagan at the 2012 LCMS National Rural and Small Town Mission Conference.

The church is where the Gospel is purely taught and the Sacraments are correctly administered. This is the heart of our life in Christ and the heart of our mission. The church need never be divided between doctrine and mission, between liturgy and evangelism. Christ has been given all authority in heaven and on earth and has blessed His Church with all that is needed. Dr. Hagan unpacks how the Office on National Mission is working to support the work of RSTM congregations as we witness to the Gospel and share mercy in our communities.

Stewardship Primer

Stewardship Primer

 

IDEAS for stewardship leaders of congregations: newly elected ... recently activated ... uninitiated ... those wanting to move ahead!
Stewardship is something practiced by you and every member of the congregation. Whether it is good, bad, mediocre, indifferent, it is stewardship of one kind or another. So, the problem is not to get stewardship into congregations, but rather, to recognize the stewardship which is there and work to improve, refine, and bring it as close as possible to what God would like it to be. This "Stewardship Primer" is intended for those people in the congregation who have been given the responsibility for leadership in a ministry of stewardship among their fellow members.

    Tithing: It's More Than the Number Ten

    Tithing: It's More Than the Number Ten

     

    When one brings up the subject of giving, you're not long into the conversation before the subject of tithing (giving 10%) enters the arena of discussion. Some people promote it; others do not. Others believe it's the solution to the church's financial woes; while many shrug it off as Old Testament legalism. Despite all the talk, what conversations about tithing so often miss are the principles behind the practice of tithing. Tithing is not the main point! To tithe or not to tithe is not the question! The question is this: What are the Biblical principles embedded in the act of tithing that God's people should practice in their plan for giving today? This study endeavors to develop five such principles of giving: 1. Regular Giving (Lesson 3) 2. Proportionate Giving (Lesson 3) 3. Prioritized Giving (Lesson 4) 4. Risk giving (Lesson 4) 5. Covenant Response Giving (Lesson 5)
