On Sunday, October 16th, we were blessed to hear the preaching of Laurie Jamieson, one of our gifted lay preachers at St. Paul Lutheran Church. Laurie is also our very gifted Stewardship Director, inspiring us each year to consider the blessings of this church and our ministry together. Each year, when we open our Stewardship season, as we’ve come to call it, Laurie has focused on a particular theme to stir our hearts, our faith and our generosity. This year, she tells the story of what it means to be a church that sings “all the verses,” to be a people of faith who embrace the whole of life, all of it. She says: “All the verses, all the people, all the faith, all the time.” Her sermon is included here, as she gave it, and the text is may also be found on the Stewardship page.
