TRURO FAMILY NEWS Gods Resources Stewardship Sunday, October 17, 2010 I believe stewardship means wisely using the resources God has graciously given me. Usually I think of this in terms of monetary resources, but I’m also convinced we are to steward our spiritual gifts. Ephesians 4:12–13 reveals that these gifts were given “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure of the fullness of Christ.” I don’t know about you, but I’ve still got a LONG way to go!
Join us Next Saturday for the TPK 5K and 1M Fun Run!
Everyone is welcome to participate next Saturday October 16th at 8:30 am in the 7th annual “Running for the Kids” 5K and 1M Family Fun Run right here on our Truro Campus. It is not too late to participate in this exciting and festive Community Wide Event. Race time is 8:30am. All proceeds benefit the Caring and Scholarship Fund of the school and this year, the need is greater than ever. This event is for runners, walkers and even the family stroller. There is fun for all ages from a moonbounce to music to a fabulous silent auction! To sponsor the event in a big or small way, to register to run/walk or to volunteer your time and talent visit www.truropreschool.org. For additional information 703-691-1006 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We each have different gifts—some are prophets, teachers, healers and more. We are to use these gifts for the common good, and in the context of the body of Christ (see 1 Corinthians 12). We are all parts of the body, and my big toe really can’t say to your ear that I don’t need you. Indeed, our church body is not complete without the contributions of all of the gifted people God has brought to Truro. So as I go back to thinking about stewardship in monetary terms, I realize that when I give financial resources to support the church, and
Truro in turn supports the ministry of the ear or the eye, the whole body is nurtured. As an individual, I’m responsible to use my gifts. As a member of the body, I can also encourage my brothers and sisters to use their gifts through regular tithing. Truro can then sustain ministries I’m not equipped to take on. What a blessing to realize that the big toe can strengthen the ear! I encourage each of us to think about how both our spiritual and financial gifts can be used to build up the many rich ministries Truro supports and would like to take on in the coming year. —Leslie Dunlap

PRAYER FOR THE PERSECUTED CHURCH—You are invited to pray for our persecuted brothers and sisters on Monday, October 11, at 7:00 pm in Room 10 of the Parish Offices Building. Hundreds of thousands of Uzbeks fled from violence at the hands of Kyrgyz people in Kyrgyzstan in June, when large-scale ethnic riots broke out. Christian pastors sprang into action, ignoring threats and hostility, trying to help the needy, especially their fellow-believers. As the crisis developed, Christians began to be targeted for their faith. This opportunity for awareness and prayer is given on the second Monday of every month. For more information call Alana Johnson on 703.772.3404 or e-mail Alana2walk@cox.net. SANCTITY OF LIFE MINISTRIES (SLM)—Do you have a listening ear that draws people to tell you their problems?

A wonderful retreat day is being planned for the women of the Anglican District of Virginia (ADV) and their friends. The Rev'd. Joanna Jepson, Chaplain of the London School of Fashion, and her mother, Mrs. Dee Dee Jepson, will be speaking on how we find our wholeness in Christ while we live in a world that dictates to us its narrow ideas of beauty. Joanna will be sharing her own astonishing testimony and what led her to her "mission field." Dee Dee will tell of how the Lord guided her in parenting two children with very daunting challenges. Come and bring daughters and friends to hear this special message. Worship, small group discussions, healing prayer, lunch and high tea at day's end will make this day memorable.
