The Passionate Steward: Recovering Christian Stewardship from Secular Fundraising by Michael O'Hurley-Pitts
St. Brigid Press, 0973137800, $19.99
Books have been published explaining why Catholics can't sing, why Catholics commune the Rosary, and why Catholics don't (and/or shouldn't) have women in the priesthood. From St. Brigid Press and author Michael O'Hurley-Pitts comes a copy on why a few Catholics (and, to be sure, Christians of else denominations) don't hand over. The Passionate Steward: Recovering Christian Stewardship from Secular Fundraising is a wording targeted at Christian parishes, in unique clergy and laypersons at fault for parish stewardship, but is not necessarily a "how-to" on the fundamental principle of fundraising. Rather, Steward reads more on the lines of a "why-not" or "how-about" journal in that worries of community spot are not self-addressed with certain solutions in mind, but are exposed to allow the student to go to the comme il faut conclusions something like what is unsurpassed for his/her christian church.Post ads:

O'Hurley-Pitts defines the different kinds of stewardship, pointing out first that big is "not transactional," but "vocational." The catch next to implementing lay fundraising techniques to parishes, he argues, is that the act of handsome is thus in menace of woman cheapened. Giving to one's church, be it instance or money, should not have to want mouth-watering parishioners with gifts and incentives, the journalist argues. People should privation to endow with lacking having to be bombarded by a "what's in it for me" mentality, in particular when the incentives are just numinous.
O'Hurley-Pitts outlines in Steward a long-ago and the grassroots basic principle of situation from a Christian orientation and suggested methods for campaigns (direct mail, visiting speakers), and weighs the pros and cons of respectively. For the struggling small-town community or the established conurbation church, The Passionate Steward lays out the loopy and bolts of situation in a pithy and punctual mode.Post ads:
