*NEW* Stewardship Reflection

2nd Sunday of Easter - April 23, 2017

“Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, ‘Peace be with you.’”  JOHN 20:19 

Are you good at making people feel welcome? When you meet someone new, a new neighbor, a new work colleague, a new parishioner, do you make them feel at home? Many of us can probably do a much better job at this. When we make people feel welcome, we make them feel like they are included instead of being excluded. A simple “hello” and a smile goes a long way.
