This year’s Annual Giving theme, “The Tree of Life: Rooted in Faith, Growing in Love and Wonder” comes from words we read in Scripture (Be rooted and built up in Christ, be established in faith. ~ Colossians 2:6-7) and our baptismal liturgy.
Give them an inquiring and discerning heart,
the courage to will and to persevere,
a spirit to know and to love you,
and the gift of joy and wonder in all your works. Amen.
These words are also a call to witness, name and increase the wonders of God’s work within ourselves, around our church, and for our neighbors near and far. They are also a call to witness name, and increase where God is calling all of us to deepen our commitment to God’s work through St. Paul’s.
