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 profession. From St. Brigid Press and playwright Michael O'Hurley-Pitts comes a copy on why quite a few Catholics (and, to be sure, Christians of opposite denominations) don't distribute. The Passionate Steward: Recovering Christian Stewardship from Secular Fundraising is a magazine targeted at Christian parishes, in expert priesthood and laypersons amenable 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" autograph album in that worries of community position are not self-addressed near unchangeable solutions in mind, but are made known to allow the reader to come to the appropriate conclusions roughly speaking what is most select for his/her christian church.Post ads:

O'Hurley-Pitts defines the a range of kinds of stewardship, pointing out best that liberal is "not transactional," but "vocational." The bother next to implementing lay fundraising techniques to parishes, he argues, is that the act of liberal is by this means in condition of woman cheapened. Giving to one's church, be it juncture or money, should not have to involve appealing parishioners beside gifts and incentives, the playwright argues. People should want to snap in need having to be bombarded by a "what's in it for me" mentality, in particular when the incentives are scarcely magic.
O'Hurley-Pitts outlines in Steward a precedent and the underlying basic principle of post from a Christian orientation and suggested methods for campaigns (direct mail, guest speakers), and weighs the pros and cons of respectively. For the struggling small-town community or the planted city church, The Passionate Steward lays out the nuts and bolts of billet in a short and snappy and punctual bearing.Post ads:
