Our hearts were touched by a line from Peewee’s offertory prayer:

“Our father, bless these gifts and the ones who gave them, and bless those who had the desire to give, but just didn’t have it today.”

Christian stewardship involves much more than one’s money, and we are continuously amazed and blessed by the gifts of our homeless friends, who unselfishly serve and share their talents in so many other ways — helping in the kitchen, dining room, sanctuary, and participating in the worship service in various ways. Actually, just their very presence is indeed a gift!
