The Butterfly Effect
I have always believed in, and been fascinated andscared by, the concept of the “butterfly effect.” It is thenotion that the movement of a butterfly’s wings changethe atmosphere ever so slightly, but that one slightmovement may contribute to a storm on the other sideof the world. I could be paranoid and always keep it innegative terms such as that, but it’s more helpful in mylife to keep it positive. If one person speaks one word oftruth or peace or encouragement, where may that effectgo?That concept speaks to me about whole-lifestewardship—stewardship not just of money, but ofwords, time, body, talents, and everything else that is agift from God. Clearly, in many (okay, ALL) of thoseareas, I have a looooong way to go. For me to be awareof my words and actions and the effects they may haveon people across the hall and across the world will be alifetime goal. I will never be there perfectly, but I canstrive for better awareness.In her essay
Faith-Based Stewardship,
priest and author Linda Grenz says,
Stewardship is the intentional use of all the resources and gifts God has given us to restore peopleto unity with God and each other in Christ and to further the reign of God on earth. It is definitelyabout money but it is also about our time, our relationships with our families, friends, neighborsand strangers in the street, our homes and possessions, our relationship with God’s creation andthe use of the earth’s resources, and much more. Being a good steward means being aware of the fact that God has given us all that we have and developing the practices of thankfulness and generosity. God’s grace—God’s unearned, undeserved and unconditional love for us—invites,even demands a life of thankfulness and praise.
This is the time of year when we launch our stewardship campaign at Trinity. We ask you to prayerfullyconsider giving of the first fruits, so to speak, to help Trinity continue its mission. I also ask you to take sometime this fall to look at other areas of your life and the implications of stewardship there. Try one area—time.Turn off the TV or the computer or the iPhone for ten minutes once a day. Spend those ten minutes quietlythanking God for the gifts you have been given, and asking for clarity on how to tend to them better. The changein life may be very small at first, but that small amount of thanksgiving, breathed into the life of the world, mayset off a storm of goodness beyond anything we could possibly ask or imagine.
