(Reaffirmed by Council annually through Dec. 11, 2010)
We believe that we are called to live in loving and intentional relationship with God and all creation, and that, as God provides abundantly for us, God expects us to respond with generosity; therefore
We commit to the Episcopal Church’s teaching that the tithe is the minimum standard of giving; and to an increase in our proportioned giving until we can attain that standard; and to a course of prayer, study, and action regarding stewardship, including sharing our stewardship stories with others; and
We invite all people of the Diocese of Vermont to join us in this commitment to increased giving, open discussion, and ongoing transformation through worship, study, and prayer.
