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!
