The Stewardship Concepts blog site is an outreach effort of our Church, Consistory Office of Stewardship of the UOC of USA. Our goal is to provide a space for thoughtful, sound, engaging and spiritually edifying content and discussion about how we can faithfully live as Orthodox Christians in our rapidly evolving experience in America, and in the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of the USA in specific.
While I will post blog articles and resources on this site as part of our ongoing effort in UOC Stewardship education, we’ll also welcome submission from others who would like to contribute their thoughts on this essential discussion for our age. Lisa Ryan and Mark Host are already lining up contributions for our conversation.
Please note that the focus of our approach here emerges from a basis of Orthodox understanding of Stewardship as Sacred Offering – which embodies the insights of Orthodox thought based in the Scriptures, Holy Tradition, the liturgical tradition, and Church praxis. For more information on this approach, you can read more in the book, The First and Finest, Orthodox Christian Stewardship as Sacred Offering (Authorhouse 2013 – From Amazon) or from my personal website on the topic – where additional articles on Orthodox Stewardship are made available as well as other helpful links: www.orthodoxstewardship.com.
There are exciting things happening in the Orthodox stewardship world – and especially in our Church. Please feel free to join in the conversation – and be a faithful steward of what God has entrusted to you in your life and in your heart.
Yours in His service,
(V.Rev.) Fr. Robert Holet, Director
